    I THINK AUSTIN RHODES UNDER-ESTIMATES THE POWER OF WORDS, HE DOES NOT REALIZE THE EFFECTS OF WORDS UNLESS THEY ARE DIRECTED TOWARDS HIM. HE HAS NO DISCRETION, HE HAS NO RESPECT HIS AUDIENCE, DID EVER CONSIDER THAT KIDS MAY HAVE BEEN PRESENT. NO! HE JUST PUT THAT FOOLISHNESS OVER THE AIRWAVES. GET RID OF HIM QUICK, BEFORE HE GETS IN ANY DEEPER.
