Former NFL receiver Brian Kinchen has been sidelined because of a "gay" crack made while calling a college football game last weekend. A clip of the offending remark initially appeared on YouTube, which we posted early Monday, before the video giant caved and took it down. But a concerned citizen -- and home video whiz -- passed the offending snippet on to us, which you can see below.
