Sir Charles is Out of His Mind!

I think that Charles Barkley is one of the best anaysts in sports but he is very lucky that he has understanding bosses at TNT after several screwups that would have most people in the media world looking for a job.

Earlier this season Barkley was arrested on a DUI charge and admitted to the arresting officer that he was headed to a rendezvous with a woman he was having an affair with. He was suspended by TNT and spent several weeks off of the air. Now this weekend he called broadcast partner Kenny Smith "numbnuts"  and then called his producer a "pussy" during a TNT studio show. 

TNT executives issued the following statement: "While Charles often makes jokes about his producer during our telecasts, he used poor judgment on Saturday during our NBA coverage. His comment was inappropriate and TNT apologizes to our viewers. We have spoken with Charles privately about it and will not have any further comment."

Barkley is hilarious but he better be careful because with several highly publicized problems there will come a time when TNT won't be able to overlook his colorful language. I truly enjoy his analysis and honesty so I hope that he doesn't go too far the next time.
