Thom Brennaman has been mocked tirelessly since he was fired by Fox Sports following a homophobic slur during a Reds game.
But according the Brennaman, the people are still calling for him to make a return to the broadcast booth.
“If I’m in the grocery or getting a cup of coffee at the local convenient shop, 99% of those I bump into, I’ll hear, ‘We wish you were back, we miss you!’” Brennaman told Sports Broadcast Journal. “Let’s say it’s even 90%. Are execs going to make a decision to appease the 10%? Wouldn’t you listen to the massive 90%?”

The 58-year-old Thom Brennaman was caught on a hot mic referring to some city as “one of the f-g capitols of the world”.
He then proceeded to make the lengthy apology while Nick Castellanos was hitting a home run in the background, a scene that still gets referred to a year later.
Brennaman would also reveal during his recent interview that he was talking about San Francisco when making the comment that would end his run as the Reds’ play-by-play man.
“On the TV pre-game show, when I wasn’t aware that we on the air but when my mic was hot, I made a homophobic remark. Although it wasn’t on-air, the clip made its way to the internet and went viral from there. There’s no defending the word I used in any form or fashion. I’ve owned up to it every second since,” Brennaman told Halberstam. “The moment it left my lips, I knew it was over. It was just a matter of time. I anticipated a suspension and lots of backlash.”
Thom Brennaman said he was getting support from fellow broadcaster Bob Costas – who recommended him for the Cubs play-by-play opening in the Winter.
Despite his pleas, it likely that Thom Brennaman has called his last MLB baseball game.
