Jim Brown Won't Let the Tiger Woods "Lynching" Comment Die
Cleveland Browns legend Jim Brown was critical of Tiger Woods handling of the recent controversy when golf commentator Kelly Tilghman made a reference to "lynching" Tiger Woods. Woods came to Tilghman's defense and basically said it wasn't a big deal. Well, it was a big deal to Brown, who many feel is the best running back ever to suit up in the NFL.
"He should have come out right away. Instead, he waited until it was politically correct [to comment]," Brown said. "The word 'lynch' ... there is no redeeming part of it.
"When you say lynch, you're gonna have to pay the price," Brown continued. "That is a very embarrassing word, a humiliating one, in the history of our country."
Tilghman was suspended for two weeks without pay by the Golf Channel and Golfweek Magazine fanned the flames with last week printing an rope and a caption that read "Caught on a Noose". Isn't it time to let this story die already?
Here is the entire interview Brown gave today on ESPN.
