    Question Did Fox Soccer Studio Hosts Go Too Far In Mocking This Obese Fan?




    Did Fox Soccer Studio Hosts Go Too Far In Mocking This Obese Fan?


    Rob Stone's addition to the Fox Soccer studio team a year ago has livened up what was previously a very proper and Continental panel of experts; when he's alongside Eric Wynalda the cable net that is the United States' soccer home can now feature entire conversations in "American."

    Sometimes this isn't great, though, and a reader made sure to note they felt offended when this bit of commentary about a morbidly obese Sunderland supporter came across the air before the yesterday's match against Sunderland at Carrow Road.

    They're supposed to be professionals. Come on. It's one thing to make fun of someone you know, or someone who can dish it right back, but this guy has no idea they're talking about him. Cheap.

    Dude is big though.

    I think they should be mocked for devoting so much time to a sport where 1-0 is an insurmountable lead...
