Barker Steps In It

Today I made the mistake of listening to sports talk radio while in my car (yes, I know I said I wouldn't do this anymore) and I heard former Alabama very-good Jay Barker ask the following questions:
If Tyrone Prothro hadn't gotten hurt, would Mike Shula still be the coach? And if so, was it a good thing for Alabama football that he get hurt?
Sometimes people intend to be "provocative" and just end up being obscene. This is one of those times. In my opinion, Tyrone Prothro is now entitled to kick Jay Barker in the groin one time.

I considered posting a picture of Prothro getting injured, but decided that too would be obscene given the terribly graphic nature of the injury. It might upset people. If you want to see it, here's a link to a picture. My suggestion is that you not click that link. He snapped his leg in two, and he will probably be limited for the rest of his life as a result of that injury, which is what makes Jay Barker's comments so appalling.
