The Dallas Cowboys will be looking for an extremely important victory this evening when they take on the San Francisco 49ers at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The winner will advance to play in the conference championship game for the right to earn a berth in the Super Bowl.
But prior to today's game, a Dallas radio host found himself in hot water thanks to comments that he made about
Bryan Broaddus and co-host Gavin Dawson were discussing the upcoming matchup on GBag Nation, a show on 105.3 FM The Fan in Dallas. The pair suddenly appeared to wish an injury on McCaffrey, and even got specific about it.
“(The) McCaffrey trade is paying dividends. He’s made it unfair. You know. He took them from…” Dawson said.
“He’s healthy now,” Broaddus said. “In Carolina he couldn’t stay healthy. Now he never gets hurt.”
“We could use an injury. We really could,” Dawson added.
“Hamstring would be good,” Broaddus said.
Broaddus would later clarify his comments, saying that he'd never wish injury on someone.
“Player has a history of not being healthy or available for his team," he said. "He’s done a great job of taking care of that while in SF. Would never wish that on any player. I worked in this league way too long for that.”
“It’s a fact. He misses games due to injury. It’s part of his entire career. It’s one of the reasons that CAR moved on. He’s a great player that’s finally healthy.”
He finally said:
“I am sorry this even happened. Not my intent. My hope it’s a great game.”
