Yes, way too many people get upset for the most innocent of remarks and take a number of common symbols way too personal. Yes, these folks need to get over it. However, in this case, the comment WAS a pointed remark refering to the mans ethnic/racial heritage and it was inappropriate. I believe that persons in a position to make any kind of remark in a pubic forum such as television, radio, or print, have an obligation to be extra catious in their comments and a responsibility to police their language. I am happy that Mr. Griese stood up and took ownership of his mis-step and apologized for it. I think he owes Mr. Montoya a PERSONAL apology and then we should ALL just move on.

Griese was a dick when he played football, and he's still a dick.
