    Ian Poulter was bashing Tom Watson and Nick Faldo on the Ryder Cup. Watson and Faldo who have a combined 14 majors wins and Ted Bishop(who has two little girls of his own) made a comment on his twitter that Poulter was "squealing like a little school girl. C'mon man!"

    In a heartbeat, he's.....gone...out....nixed...voted out as president of the PGA. He's a disgrace for his comment.

    I think this PC crap is getting out of control. Just my opinion. :dontknow:

    He should have just said Poulter was acting like a cunt. Then people would say..."Boy, that guy REALLY got canned!"

    The comment or the punishment?

    Seems like a lot of outrage over nothing, but when you post something on social media you invite every uptight douche with an agenda to jump all over it.

    Seems ridiculous for Bishop to get canned for this although he only had a month left before his term ended anyway.

    Stern-related because Howard is PC and Ian Poulter was the guy who once complained about fans yelling Baba Booey on the course.

    Calling someone a little girl is demeaning to women. Now let's not shave and go protest in the streets while taking time off from jobs we don't have while hard working Neanderthals who use words like fag and cunt pay for us to stay home and do nothing.

    Fuck liberals, those fag cunts.

    I agree. No one in sports or upper corp positions should ever post on twitter. No matter how moderate the comment is, someone will ruin you for it.

    I think Greg Norman would make a great PGA president

    agree, why do ppl pretend to be outraged that someone that dont know was fired.
    the agenda is to make money

    I don't understand how a grown man with a high profile job would even have a twitter account...I would fire him for that alone

    Exactly. Don't even have a twitter account. Not worth it.
