Boomer Esiason Slams Maryland for American Sniper Decision

Former NFL quarterback and current radio host Boomer Esiason said he is cutting off the University of Maryland, where he played during his college career, after its decision to cancel a screening of American Sniper.

Esiason, who is the host of the popular Boomer & Carton show in New York, said on Friday that he is "never donating another dime" to Maryland after it caved to pressure from Muslim student groups and canceled a planned screening of American Sniper.

Esiason said he was "deeply saddened and insulted" by the decision.

The University of Michigan earlier this month also cancelled a screening of American Sniper but reversed its decision after much backlash—including from its new head football coach Jim Harbaugh.
