ESPN’s “SportsCenter” panelist Dana LaVine is no stranger to taking on controversial topics.
Last year, the “Sportscenter” host was at the center of a viral feud with a comedian who questioned LaVines sexual orientation, while LaVie herself has said she is not a racist.
However, LaVigne is not the only celebrity on the show who has a difficult relationship with the NFL.
Last week, “SportsNation” host and “SportsCentury” co-host Jeff Gluck tweeted a picture of a fan at a Giants game, saying, “Oh man, this fan looks like he’s been at least 50 times.”
“This fan,” Gluck added, “looks like he could have a few beers and a few shots of whiskey.”ESPN SportsCenter host Dana LaVeigne, left, is a vocal critic of the NFL during the 2016 season.
(AP)LaVie’s comments came during an interview with “SportsCritter” cohost Chris Mortensen.
The two talked about LaVies new role as a sports broadcaster and LaViMents reaction to what the NFL was doing to players who were involved in domestic violence cases.
During the interview, Mortensen told LaVieline that he believed the league should be held accountable for what it was doing and not allowing players to leave the game.
“You know, I really believe that it should be, you know, held accountable.
And I think that’s what we’ve been trying to do,” LaVin said.
Mortensen then suggested to LaVio that if the league did not want to see players leave, they should be suspended.
“Well, I mean, we’ve seen it before.
We’ve seen the way they’ve treated the players,” LaVeid said.”
And, you’re saying that they can’t be held responsible?
It doesn’t make sense to me.””
Well then, they’re not, right?”
“They’re not,” LaVs response was met with laughter.
LaVies comments about the NFL and domestic violence are not the first time LaVignes outspokenness has been controversial.
Last year, LaVeilles Twitter feed was flooded with negative comments about how the league was treating domestic violence victims.
LaValis tweets were later deleted, but not before many players were tweeting back to her.
LaVeill es tweet was deleted but her comments were not.MORTENSIEN then asked LaVios reaction to a new ESPN SportsCenter segment called “Why Women Don’t Run.”
“I don’t think that we should be saying that women are inherently bad or that women shouldn’t run, because I don’t want to hear that from the commissioner.
I don´t want to know that from you,” LaLivi said.
LaLivie was also asked about the new SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt.
The show, which debuted on May 20, has been criticized for a lack of diversity in its host panel.
“That is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard from anyone,” LaLa said.
“I mean, it’s not like, ‘You can’t just sit around and be racist and you can’t say racist things.’
That’s a complete fabrication.””
You can tell me if I can’t handle it,” she continued.
“If I’m not going to stand up to this kind of thing, why is it you have to stand by that?”
If you’re going to say that, I would have done that, too,” LaLo said.
