Comcast Fires Female Sports Reporter for On-Air Freudian Slip

Susannah Collins

After caving to intense pressure from women’s rights groups, the major sports networks began an experiment by hiring sexy women to announce major sports competitions from the sidelines. The experiment failed miserably due to two simple truths: no matter how sexy she is, a feminine voice is too distracting to men while they’re watching testosterone-filled sports. The second simple truth is horny women can’t control their desires around sports Gods like LeBron James.

Today, Comcast SportsNet Chicago announced they were firing a female sports reporter who had a Freudian slip live on the air.

From Examiner.com:

According to Yard Barker on May 3, reporter Susannah Collins lost her job with Comcast SportsNet Chicago just days after making a Freudian slip on television.

Collins was a sideline reporter and was talking about the Chicago Blackhawks season as they head into the playoffs. While she meant to say that the team had a “tremendous amount of success,” she said the team had a “tremendous amount of sex.”

She caught herself, stammered for a moment but then quickly picked back up and said “success” before moving on. It was a nice catch for the sideline sports reporter, but it was not enough to keep the network from firing her.

Comcast SportsNet Chicago released a statement clarifying that Collins’ termination was “unrelated to her on-air remarks.” The network did not disclose why Collins was fired, which leads to speculation that Collins may have had other Freudian slips of a sexual nature.

According to the famed psychologist Sigmund Freud, a Freudian slip is the verbalization of an unconscious thought. In other words, the verbalization of something we are subconsciously thinking but can’t speak out loud.
According to Freud, unacceptable thoughts or beliefs are withheld from conscious awareness, and these slips help reveal what is hidden in our unconscious.

      “You see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn (University), but she’s also Miss Alabama and that’s AJ McCarron’s girlfriend,” Musburger said.”You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women.

      AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb sits in the crowd.ESPN cameras repeatedly flashed back to linger on 23-year-old Ms Webb during the game.

      So you’re saying that being a woman didn’t cause her to think about sex while observing hot, sweaty men? And that her thinking about sex didn’t get her fired? Do you think a male reporter would have slipped and said “sex”? :shrug:

      I prefer to hear men calling male sports. I was watching a NBA game last night, and I kept hearing a woman talking. I’m like, ‘why am I hearing a woman talking?’ It turned out to be one of those female reporters yakking about something an NBA player told her. She sounded so unprofessional. In my opinion, the only female sports reporter who can call a man’s game is Mary Carillo. Her voice is not distracting or annoying. And she’s very knowledgeable about sports.

      Give me a damn break. It was a harmless slip of the the tongue. I truly hope she wasn’t fired just because of this.

      If men can cover female athletic events, women damn sure can cover male athletic events. To say this woman can’t do her job because she’s surrounded by men and is constantly thinking of sex is just plain stupid and sexist. Tell that to all of the competent female firefighters, cops, plumbers, electricians, contractors/carpenters, and executives who kick ass in their male-dominated environments. And, what makes it worse is a woman, Auntie Sandra, promoting this ass backwards thinking.
