Roger McDowell Is Accused Of Making Gay Slurs and Threatening A Man and his Children

Things are not looking good for Roger McDowell.

As just streamed on TMZ, a family is speaking out about something that happened at a game between the San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves.

McDowell, a coach for the Atlanta Braves, got into an altercation with some fans in the bleachers and proceeded to hurl gay taunts their way.

After that, some fans expressed outrage and said something to him about it. That was when he snapped and started to yell at the man, saying that kids don't belong at the ballpark and making a crude gesture to them and threatened him with a bat, allegedly asking him "how much his teeth are worth."

Clearly, he crossed a line and the backlash is going to be brutal for him. Inside, we'll be talking about what this means for him, the Braves and baseball.

If you have any thoughts on this, make sure to leave them in the comments.
