49ers Radio Broadcaster Tim Ryan Suspended for Comments about Lamar Jackson’s Dark Skin
49ers radio broadcaster Tim Ryan has allegedly been suspended for making comments on Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson’s dark skin. When Ryan appeared on KNBR’s “Murph and Mac” show this time, he instead of saying anything else about his great skills, he simply credited Jackson’s “dark skin” for being good at faking handoffs.
Due to the comment that Ryan made during the broadcast, he got suspended and it has been announced by 49ers officials as well. The team said to expect him to learn from his experience, as they said, “We know Tim as a man of high integrity and are confident he will grow and learn from this experience.”
Further the official added, “He’s really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing. I mean you literally could not see when he was in and out of the mesh point and if you’re a half step slow on him in terms of your vision forget about it, he’s out of the gate.”
