The Daily News reports that  ESPN has suspended Max Kellerman for an inappropriate conversation on ESPN-LA Radio surrounding Ray Rice and domestic abuse. Kellerman co-hosts a show on the station and is the co-anchor of ESPN TV’s “SportsNation.” He is also HBO Sports’ lead boxing analyst.  Kellerman told a story going back years when he and his then-girlfriend Erin, who now is his wife, attended a college party. Max said they both had to much too drink. He said when he tried getting things under control his then-girlfriend slapped him. Kellerman said he slapped her back. He was quick to tell listeners that the woman is now is his wife and they have been happily married for 20 years. Rumor has it that this is more about Max not adhering to ESPN’s no talk policy about Ray Rice domestic abuse case, kinda like the Jerry Jones stripper pictures we first posted last week. Personally i’ve heard nothing but good things about Max Kellerman coming from people who have worked with him, hopefully Max gets back on air soon as he’s one of our favorite on air analysts/hosts.-TO
