Misogynists everywhere can rejoice and make ceremonial Tim Allen grunts. Richard Deitsch is reporting that ESPN has removed Pam Ward from its college football coverage. Ward, who tread new ground for women, had been calling games since 2000.
From ESPN via Deitsch:
“For a decade, Pam has been a trailblazing voice on college football. She will continue to be a big part of our coverage plans across multiple sports including college basketball, softball, the WNBA and more.”
Ward surely was no Keith Jackson. That said, she received more fervent abuse and criticism than generic Bro-Magnons of similar ability. Entire seasons of doing MAC and third-tier Big Ten games would curb anyone’s enthusiasm.
