Legion of Doom Nominee: Jimmy " The Greek" Snyder

The CBS analyst was fired after 12 years of service for his comments about the physical differences between African-American and Caucasian athletes. He told a Washington D.C. television reporter that a black athlete, “…is bred to be the better athlete because, this goes all the way to the Civil War when ... the slave owner would breed his big woman so that he would have a big black kid."

I say he is a perfect fit as an elder statesman/supervillan for the Legion of Doom.

Is Snyder a Greek name? You know, the mental differences between Greek analysts and Caucasian analysts…

Wow....Legion of Doom status for that comment. Maybe a bit misguided, but I'm a little confused at to why this would qualify.

No way. Jimmy was an alcoholic who did every show hammered. It was only a matter of time before he said something stupid. Member of Legion of Pathetic, yes, but not Legion of Doom.

'Elder statesman/supervillian'? There are only two potentials: George Steinbrenner (Crimes against the Red Sox, salaries, and Yankee Stadium); Bill Bidwell (Crimes against Phoenix AND St. Louis fans, and for lowering the collective IQ of the species).
