Niners, Pac-12 suspend broadcaster
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have suspended veteran broadcaster Ted Robinson for two games following comments this week to a San Francisco radio station about the Ray Rice domestic violence case that were deemed insensitive.
The Pac-12 Networks also announced it had suspended Robinson for the next two weeks and that he would undergo sensitivity training.
The 57-year-old Robinson spoke to KNBR radio Monday and said Rice’s now-wife, Janay, was partly to blame for not speaking up. Robinson issued apologies through the 49ers and Pac-12 Networks.
