"chew" Or "jew"? You Decide profootballtalk.com

There's an intriguing imbroglio unfolding in NFL media circles regarding whether ESPN's Sean Salisbury uttered the word "Jew" during Monday's broadcast of NFL Live. The term was used in connection with Salisbury's discussion regarding the Colts' come-from-behind win over the Patriots on Sunday.
We'd heard about the incident from several readers, and we asked around the blogosphere about it. Our friends at Deadspin.com had the balls (and we respect them for it) to post a carefully-crafted story regarding the issue. And the RandBall blog at StarTribune.com writes that ESPN claims that Salisbury said "chew."
Here's the audio. You decide.
This is what we heard Salisbury say, regarding the approach that the Colts and quarterback Peyton Manning employed on Sunday: "We'll nip, we'll tuck, we'll go, we'll punch, we'll Jew, we'll do it all. And they nickel-and-dimed it and Peyton made the plays when it mattered all through the second half." [Editor's note: We previously had "crunch" in place of "punch." We apologize for the error.]
We reported several months back that Salisbury was suspended by ESPN for a week. Though we didn't disclose the reason for the suspension, it has been reported elsewhere that it was the result of Salisbury taking a picture of his, um, appendage and showing it to others.
We don't know whether Salisbury meant to say "Jew" or whether he was simply talking too fast. But it wasn't "chew," and if ESPN thinks that anyone will believe that, then ESPN thinks we're all stoopid.
Of course, the continued presence of Michael Irvin on the Bristol airwaves pretty much confirms that ESPN thinks we're all stoopid.
And thanks so much to the reader who recorded the audio and sent it to us. We owe you one. (It's just a figure of speech. Please don't ask us for anything.)

None the less. So what. If Michael Irvin can smoke weed and make blatantly racist comments and still not lose his job, even though he sucks horribly at it, then this shouldn't even be an issue.

You two always crack me up. f-'n hysterical.
I think he just mis-pronounced chew, but who knows.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
"But you guys sucked."

Nope. Well maybe he does smoke weed, but he also smokes crack. He has been busted for crack at least once and got caught with that crack pipe last year that he claimed wasn't his.

Check out these articles.
He's been arrested multiple times for drug possession of weed and cocaine. Never crack. And the police "found a multi-colored pipe with marijuana residue inside a Versace sunglass case tucked underneath the driver's seat of his 2005 Mercedes Benz".
He's a pothead with a dabble of cocaine.

He did say nickle and diming them though.....
I'm not gonna defend Salisbury. He's a douchebag and a jerk. He made a mistake, and he's doing the only thing a guy in that industry can do in that situation. Lie about it and move on.

There are only two Jews.........one being a descendant of the tribe of Judah which there were 13tribes of the nation of Israel and are Hebrews and the other are from "mystery babylon the great " from Nebuchadnezzar "s empire and the Talmud is where they derive their belief system .
Babylon under Persia
In 539 BC the Neo-Babylonian Empire fell to Cyrus the Great, king of Persia. It is said that Cyrus walked through the gates of Babylon without encountering any resistance. He later issued a decree permitting the exiled Jews to return to their own land, and allowed their temple to be rebuilt.
these Jews no longer followed the laws of moses but belong to the Synagogue of Satan.
