    Should Chuck be let go?

    Did anyone else notice in the dunk contest that Chuck was slaming on former President George Bush? At first I thought, Chuck is just being Chuck, but then I remember that Hank Williams Jr was pulled from ESPN for Slaming President Obama. I'm not trying to start a political conversation, but I want to know what other sports fans think, my personal belief is that politics and sports should never mix, but if Hank gets pulled, should Chuck also?

    He should have been fired a long time ago.

    Chuck is the only saving grace of all-star weekend so far.

    Let go for making a harmless joke? No.

    Everyone's too sensitive.

    Hank Williams Jr went off on a tirade on the current President. Chuck made a harmless joke about a guy that isn't the President any longer. The same President that has been the punchline of many different jokes, on all different networks. It's a joke.

    Also, ESPN =/= TNT, the two aren't even comparable.

    TNT knows drama!
    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    I added a poll. I'm assuming this will be extremely lopsided.
    I put no.

    Anyone who says chuck should be fired is either a ashore (new word) or a racist themselves.who gets mad at what Chuck says? Everyone knows this dude is a good person.he is just honest.I watch the all star weekend , and alot of games just to hear chuck.some of his comment are dumb but they all are funny, and said imo out of truth or to make light...and anyone who takes up for Bush.......smh..you must be well off, or on a suburb with choice friends.

    if it were the current president, people may flip out. hwoever, i dont thinks its a big deal to rip on previous presidents. all that is in the past and there is nothing we can do about it. although, one thing we can do is get this moron we currently have as our president out of office.....

    Obama shouldnt even be running in the first place...he said he wouldnt run if he didnt fix the economy within his first term as president. 2 things that he was full of **** on in one statement
    Bulls
    Bears
    White Sox

    AND YOUR NEW STANLEY CUP CHAMPS, THE BLACKHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To clarify, since the OP didn't: One of the other announcers was reminding fans that they can text in to vote for the winner of the dunk contest, and Barkley made an off-hand quip that essentially said (I'm paraphrasing): "These are the same people that voted for Bush twice, and you're going to give them the keys to the car?!"

    It was a joke, people. C'mon.
