BASKETBALL: Boob Ryan

Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe has been suspended a month without pay for saying on a shout show that he wanted to "smack" Jason Kidd's wife, who he finds annoying; this seems a bit harsh, but the remark really was in exceptionally poor taste, given Kidd's arrest for hitting his wife a few years ago.

Interesting to think that Ryan's getting a more serious punishment for saying she should be slapped than Kidd did for "allegedly" slapping her.

Moreover, is Ryan getting a stiffer punishment because he said this about someone whose husband was arrested for slapping her?
