I'm lost as well. I've read it at least twice and still can't understand what is supposed to be the news content. Apparently some bloke on some tv channel said Montoya was out having a taco. Ok. And? And that same said bloke was suspended exactly why? The mind boggles.

I see now that some people might have complained about it but if Montoya doesn't care why should anyone else? :?

Frank G, unfortunately the USA seems to have the same politically correct disease as we have in the UK - people on the edge of their seats waiting to be offended at the slightest thing. Get this guy back on TV now!

NFL Hall of Fame QB Bob Griese's remark would equate to someone saying a black guy was out eating chicken and watermelon. Griese is a known lush and was probably trying to be cute. It came out racist. The sad thing is Griese is also stupid as Colombia is not known for taco's.

If he would have asked where Tony Stewart was and the reply was he was out getting a Whopper....would that be racist? Why is it only white people get called on this stuff? Where's Dale jr? why he's out getting some BBQ.
Why you racist bastard........
