1 Andy Gray sacked. on Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:32 am

I've been reading the paper sites and the comments left by members, and what surprises me most is how quite a large number of people dismiss the whole affair as "a bit of banter" or "harmless fun". Just further evidence of the sexist and discriminatory attitudes that still pervade the sport.

What I don't understand is why the name is 'linesman'.

Is that the official name?

If it's a lady who's doing it then it should be lineslady or something.

They're gunning for Key's now, revealing new stuff all the time about the pair of them. Look at this wally.

And Key's has resigned. Smells to me like Sky wanted them out and that the two lads thought they were too big for their boots. It was a stitch up job but sure there's no smoke without fire - they're obviously clowns off camera and the rest of the staff had issues with them.

I heard it on the radio earlier about Keys saying he wasn't sure doing it without Andy Gray any more.

He just knows his time is over too. Sky obviously have had enough of them.

Sepp Blatter suggested in 2004 that women should wear tighter shorts and low cut tops while playing football to generate more interest. Lol, and then there's people still saying that there's no sexism in football? Hilarious.

On the other side of things though, you could say that beach volleyball and female tennis players are watched by quite a few men just because of the human body being displayed, just like women watch football and rugby just to watch men in shorts. You can't deny that it's an attraction for some.

I think he's gone because of what he did.

I don't think it has anything to with him knowing 'his time is over'.

Clearly just a set of circumstances that resulted in this.
