ESPN Pulls Robert Lee from UVA Football Broadcast Amid Political Tension

In what is seen by many as a no-win situation, ESPN has pulled commentator Robert Lee from the broadcast of the University of Virginia’s football opener on September 2nd. Lee has been reassigned to the Pitt vs Youngstown State game on the same day which can be seen on ESPN3. This decision was made after  protests took place in Charlottesville, Virginia over the potential removal of the Robert E. Lee confederate statue in Charlottesville.
