Default OT: ESPN Analyst Accused of being Anti-Semitic

Sean Salisbury Might Have Said Something He Shouldn't Have
Posted Jan 23rd 2007 10:17PM by mjd
Filed under: NFL Media Watch

On Monday's edition of "NFL Live" on ESPN, analyst Sean Salisbury made what I hope was just a massively unfortunate slip of the tongue when talking about Peyton Manning's 2nd half performance against the Patriots. Here's what actually came out of Salisbury's mouth:

"I saw a calmness about him. We've always known he's a great player, but a calmness that said, 'You know what, no need to panic. We'll nip, we'll tuck, we'll go, we'll crunch, we'll Jew, we'll do it all.' And he nickeled and dimed 'em, and Peyton made the play when it mattered."

ESPN's official position is that Salisbury said "chew," but you can hear the audio here, via Pro Football Talk, and to me, that sounds more like a "J" sound than a "ch" sound.

I'm not entirely sure what it would mean to "Jew" your way down the field (of course, I don't know how you "chew" your way down the field, either), but I hope it's not some kind of NFL locker-room lingo that ties into a stereotype that might also have to do with "nickel and diming."

And it's also entirely possible that it was one of those things where you mean to say one thing, and another comes out, or you're thinking of two different words, and what actually comes out of your mouth is a hybrid of the two. People misspeak all the time, and Salisbury should probably get the benefit of the doubt and a chance to explain himself before he gets labeled an anti-Semite.

Either way, I think it's safe to assume that the cell phone pictures referenced here are of the circumcised variety.

Much respect to Deadspin, Randball, and Pro Football Talk for their work on the story today.

Salisbury is a douche but chew makes a lot more sense following his use of crunch than Jew does. If he said Jew, it was probably just a misspeak.

He references 'Jew', and then starts talking about nickeling and diming? Coinkidink? I think not.

Holy crap, society is way too sensitive these days. Someone says "Jew" and people get all offended.

There is a black kid in my school and he doesn't really care when the snobby rich-ass white kids call him "niggah" or say they're in the KKK. Maybe it's because he doesn't want to start a fight, but still. I don't support saying that to people because it is offensive, but that kid doesn't make a scene about it.

People just take crap waaaayyy out of context.

In people's defense though, Salisbury does come off as a bit ill-tempered at times. Still, "chew" makes way more sense then "Jew"

With so many goddamn accents around, they can tell the difference between a "j" sound and a "ch" sound?

Good thing they don't have anything else to do.

Chew makes way more sense because I've actually heard it in that context before. Although the way he talked about Peyton Manning Nickle and Diming right after word...

yeah, all people should just shrug when people people slur them and taunt them...

the world would be much better if people just didnt 'make a scene about it'...
