Default Andy Gray sacking.

All this fuss about Andy Gray losing his job at Sky Sports (TV) just because he was caught on video tape insinuating that the "Referee's Assistant" at a match could not possibly have known the "Offside Law" as the assistant was a female has been blown up out of all proportions.

Of course girls do not know the offside law in soccer

They don't even know when to duck

Look at this:

Haha To be honest I did think the media blew it massivly out of proportion . While sexist is wrong we all make jokes about women not knowing the offside rule always . A the end of it the girl didn't mind and was willing to ignore it . It was just the media blowing everything out of proportion as per usual

I agree the woman didn't mind at all, it was the media. Also I heard it wasn't just that remark that got him sacked but another one Sky Sports found out about, which was worst.

the off side rule isnt exactly hard to understand, but i bet its very hard to ref when at ground level. Gotta have your eyes in two places at the same time.

Default Hard lesson.

I have just heard that Andy Gray's remarks about lineswoman Sian Massey have cost him big time financially.

He lost his 1.7 million a year job with Sky Sport over this scandal.

He has found a new job with talkSPORT paying about 200 grand a year.

OOOOUUUUCCCCCHHHHHH!!!!!

That'll teach him to keep his cake hole shut

Oh no! He's earning 200k a year, how does he manage to feed himself?

People in football earn too much...
