ESPN suspends Rob Parker over RGIII comments

ESPN has suspended Rob Parker indefinitely for his comments on Redskins quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

"Following yesterday's comments Rob Parker has been suspended until further notice," ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said. "We are conducting a full review."

On Thursday, Parker was on First Take with Skip Bayless. They were discussing RGIII when Parker asked if the QB is, "a brother, or is he a cornball brother?" He went on to make references RGIII's dating history and political beliefs before mentioning Tiger Woods and the quarterback's braids. Stephen A. Smith intervened and said that the conversation had gone to an uncomfortable place. [Washington Post]
