Sly said on the air that if the issue was his comment on Phil's appearance, he would apologize for it. But he wouldn't apologize for criticizing Woodman's decision to end Mental Health coverage.
You have to remember, Sly is an entertainer. He's paid to be outrageous. Rush Limbaugh says ridiculous things all the time and he's the #1 radio show in America. Sly didn't do anything wrong. He was doing his job.
: Well, Woodman's put up -- they are now footing the bill and the show is back on after the city stepped in and took over the planning/organization role that Mid-West had previously undertaken. So, guess you'll have to look for a new conspiracy theory since the plain truth is too hard for you to accept.
: Yeah, maybe Phil does have thin skin, and I also disagree with Woodman's decision to end mental health benefits (which is what Sly was bashing them for). But I don't think it's necessary or smart for Sly to make it personal by attacking Phil's appearance (especially if you live in a glass house the size of Sly's). Bottom line, it's just the latest in a very, very long line of stupid things Sly has said. I'm not sure if this was even in the top 5 in terms of public black eyes he's given Mid-West over the years.
