ESPN Removes Fantasy Football Leagues with Anti-Semitic Names From Website

ESPN has removed from its website fantasy football leagues with anti-Semitic names after receiving a complaint from a Jewish human rights organization, according to a story in the Hartford Courant.

According to the story, the league names included "Jews are Immoral," and "Jews love pennies" among others. An ESPN spokesman said such offensive material has "absolutely no place on our site."
