Tell Sportscasters Boomer & Carton To Apologize!

New York sports radio hosts Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason -- who is also a legendary NFL quarterback -- recently lambasted Mets infielder Daniel Murphy for taking a THREE-DAY paternity leave. They even had some suggestions for the new dad’s birth plan:

"Quite frankly, I would have said, 'C-section before the season starts, I need to be at opening day,'" said NFL Legend Boomer Esiason. 

Shocker: Athletes who are radio hosts aren’t doctors. And their take on paid family leave and maternal health is dangerous, sexist, contributing to wage discrimination against moms, and downright insulting.  

There is no better umpire than moms--and we are making a call on this one. Carton and Esiason just hit a foul ball. Demand that they apologize for their offensive remarks on Daniel Murphy’s leave with his family!
