Hank Williams Comments, ESPN pulled the song from Hank Williams Jr. ‘s introduction of its classic game broadcast Monday night in the NFL after the country music singer famous for the phrase “Are you ready for some football?” uses ananlogy with Adolf Hitler in discussing the president Barack Obama.
In an interview Monday morning on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, “Williams, spontaneous, outgoing, said Obama’s ties to House Speaker John Boehner:” It would be like playing golf with Hitler (the Prime Minister Israeli Benjamin) Netanyahu. ”
Asked to clarify, Williams said: “They are the enemy,” adding that “they” meant that Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Gretchen Carlson anchor then said: “You use the name of one of the most hated people in the world to describe, I think the president.” Williams replied: “Well, that’s true. But I’m telling it like it is.”
“As Hank Williams Jr. is not an employee of ESPN, we recognize that is closely linked to our company through the open to” Monday Night Football, ‘”the network said in a statement.” We are disappointed with their comments and as a result we decided to pull open the telecast from tonight. ”
Williams issued a statement through her publicist, saying: .. “Some of us have strong opinions and are often poorly understood myanlogy was extreme – but it was to make a point that he was simply trying to explain what I thought was stupid – how ridiculous that mating. They are polar opposites and that he had sense. They do not realize eye to eye and never will. I have always respected the office of president. ”
ESPN did not say whether the introduction synonymous with “Monday Night Football” since 1989, could be used again after Colts-Buccaneers game this week.
“Every time the media brings us to the tea party is painted as racists and extremists – but there is never a reaction – no offense to the comparisons,” Williams continued the statement. “The working class is suffering – and it seems that no one cares when both parties are high-fiving in the ninth hole, when everyone else is out of work -.. does a lot of angry with us Something has to change. Policies have to change. ”
ESPN covered the story on “SportsCenter” and the pregame show, but did not mention the absence of the song at the start of transmission of the game when fans would normally be the audience, “Are you ready for some football?” Instead of a music video, viewers have just seen the clips of both teams and heard a voice in the fight.
The song “All My Rowdy Friends are here on Monday night” is a remixed version of his 1984 hit “All My Rowdy Friends are coming over tonight.” The version of Williams won four Emmys in the 1990s as the opening theme of “Monday Night Football”, then on ABC.
