Chet Coppock: Chicago Sports Talk Legend and...Anti-Semite?

If you've listened to any Chicago sports talk radio, chances are you've heard the familiar gruff voice of Chet Coppock. Considered by many of his local colleagues to be the Godfather of the genre, Coppock's homepage features quotes about him from Pat Sajak to Michael Wilbon. His resume (if you care to read it on there, it's pretty extensive I can assure you) is impressive. However, I found something funny in the first sentence opening:

Can you name a bohemian who's been chosen man of the year by the Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame?... There is only one answer... Mr. Chet Coppock! And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Apparently so. Because when you get down to the root of the iceberg, you'll find the Bohemian may get praise from Italians, but he certainly won't be from the Hebrew community any time soon after this comment...

WMVP-AM 1000 has suspended Chet Coppock for making an offensive comment towards Jews.
When asked on last Saturday's show, how do you spell Jewish, Coppock replied,

With that said, Coppock has been suspended for his next four shifts and won't return back to the airwaves until February 23rd. However, Coppock did issue an apology for the statement, "I made an offensive comment I truly regret. It doesn't reflect my views or those of WMVP. I sincerely apologize."

Believe me when I say I give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Lord only knows how much shit that I or Noce have said that hasn't been too well received (See Let The Backlash Begin). Does his comment prove he's probably a racist? Yeah, I'd say so. Fuck, at least he's being honest how he feels. In the words of our first ever ESPN Member Douchebag ESPN4LIFE72, Coppock would rather be a REAL somebody then a FAKE nobody!!

BallHype: hype it up!
