Doug Gottlieb is a college basketball analyst for CBS and he’s never been known for having a filter. Since day one, this guy has been trouble and there’s no doubt that his recent tweet about the Ray Rice situation will further his demise in the sports analyst industry. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then check out what the outspoken former basketball player and current analyst said:
Sure, the fake Mike Tomlin account wasn’t correct in posting that picture of Baltimore Ravens‘ RB Ray Rice at an Atlantic City hotel, dragging his fiancee after reportedly knocking her out, but his response is just pathetic.
Fake accounts are known for posting racy things about current events and other controversial things. As you can see from the photo that was released to the public by TMZ, Rice was trying to carry his fiancee after she was apparently out cold and the account made a distasteful, but not surprising, tweet about the situation.
For a high profile character such as Gottlieb to respond by saying “and of course he fumbled” is probably not the best way to hold on to people’s wavering respect for you.
He has been known for doing regrettable and questionable things. In fact, he stole a credit card from a college roommate at Notre Dame and was kicked off the basketball team before transferring to Oklahoma State to finish his basketball career.
That wasn’t the only time in his life he was an idiot. In fact, check out this awkward no-filter video:
Time for CBS to make some choices.
