Thanks for the note. I certainly didn't intend that comment to be received as it was, but if it offended people that's on me. I have deleted it from my blog.

How exactly does someone intend a joke about someone's Dad dying to be received?
The classic non-apology apology- "I'm sorry that I offended people" not "I wrote something juvenile and stupid and I really do apologize to Mr. Bradshaw's family for being insensitive."

http://blogs.herald.com/random_evide...waiting-f.html

Cote now is apologizing for a blog post on Saturday, while refusing to acknowledge or apologize for his post on Sunday after Terry's Dad died that "thanked" Mr. Bradshaw for dying.

If he ever wants to give up sportswriting he has a skill set that would be of assistance in being a sketchy trial lawyer.
This guy is obviously a piece of shit coward. The asshole has no business saying anything publicly that will ever be taken seriously again. I hope word of this goes national, and he is completely discredited and loses all advertisers or associations.

People like this fry me.

Thanks for posting about this Dan.

My mother always told me that you don't do something to someone that one day it doesn't come home to haunt you. Karma is a bitch Mr. Cote, and when it comes home to bite you in the ass remember where it came from!

Dear Mr. Cote

I could hide behind posting a slam under an anonymous name in the comments section of your blog but wanted to contact you personally.

When I heard you on ESPN Radio back in the day when Dan Le Batard hosted the Sunday morning show I enjoyed your observations, but I guess your concept of humor has devolved under the burdens of having to crank out copy for your blog.

Ed Bouchette from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette provided a link to your blog with this comment

The most tasteless remark I came across about the Super Bowl was a column written by Greg Cote of the Miami Herald, who called it the worst Super Bowl ever. That’s OK, this written by him was not:

“The broadcast was ordinary. Terry Bradshaw missed it because his father died. Getting him out of this game was one more reason to thank Dad.”

http://sportsblogs.post-gazette.com/...s/201402040002

If you have not lost a parent you presumably are simply ignorant of how much it hurts. If you have experienced that loss and did not have a toxic relationship with your parents, posting that comment is incomprehensible.

Extremely tasteless and insensitive.

When you have to dig that low to sound clever......cover yourself with the dirt.

Yeah, well getting Cote out of the blogging/shitting comfortably business will be one more reason to thank the colo-rectal cancer I just wished on him.

Mr. Cote, if you're offended by my comments, I'm sorry you're sensitive.

I think what he meant was 'TB should be happy that he missed the game', only he went really dark and dumb tying in the dead father angle.

It's hard to imagine any 'good' or 'funny' joke that involves making light of TB's loss.

So pretty much no matter what it's just bad writing.
