KNBR’s Damon Bruce has been suspended indefinitely for his anti-women comments according to blogger and long-time friend Richard Liberman. This was just announced by Liberman at his blog at 2:27 PM EDT.

This move is the latest reaction to comments he made on his San Francisco-based radio show. Damon Bruce now joins Steak Shapiro, Chris Dimino, and Nick Cellini of Atlanta’s 790 The Zone Radio Show, who were canned for an offensive fake-interview of Steve Gleason, who has ALS. Here are the quotes as recorded by Wendy Thurm, a writer for the website Bay Area Sports Guy, who also Twitter tweeted this:

“I am re-masculating sports.”

“I plant a flag back in sports for the boys.”

“Sports has lost its way because women are giving directions.”

“I’m willing to share my sandbox as long as you realize you’re in MY sandbox.”

“Ultra-feminine opinions interjected into the world of sports.”

“If sports injuries are too gruesome for you, go write a restaurant column.”

“Everyone’s coming to my view of Incognito … that Jonathan Martin can’t handle a professional locker room environment.”

“I know how professional sports works.”

“I see these tweets by LOLKNBR and @hangingsliders. That’s Wendy Thurm. I like Wendy Thurm. I’ve had her on my show. She’s very smart. She knows baseball. I enjoy her contributions to the sport she covers.”

“But very few small handful of women who are very good at this at all.”

“Message for all the women, all the guidance counselors, the sensitive males … all of this world of sports, especially the world of football, has a setting. It’s set to men. Women, ladies, sensitive guys, you can observe, be offended, report on it all. But we’re not changing it for you.”

“It’s a man’s world. Guys can get away with locker room talk.”

“Ladies, don’t think you’re re-writing the rule book for us. Don’t think we’re going to your sensitivity training.”

“It’s unfair in the world of men. You’ll learn that early.”

“Sports are set to the dial of men. And I’m not going to allow it to be changed.”

“That’s why guys like Richie Incognito exist. Jonathan Martin is distracting in the locker room more than Incognito.”

“You are all high and overly sensitive.”

“I’m willing to share my sandbox as long as you realize you’re in MY sandbox.”

Why Damon Bruce even cares about this is beyond me, but if he was looking for radio ratings points, he may have scored them, but it cost him his job. And no wonder. Consider these Twitter tweets:

And Mr. Bruce didn’t make things any better:

Stay tuned.
