That'll put his Sky deal under more threat. A simple change in terminology would have saved him all aggro - instead of saying a man's game, he could have made reference to the fact they there were playing like adults, not rolling around on the ground simulating like children. Which I think is still the point he's trying to convey. But to make a comment about it being a man's game whilst sat next to female pundit, then to be corrected on air by the host, but to then make another comment about a man's game afterwards is either being plainly stubborn or unknowingly foolish. I don't think he's trying to deliberately dig at the women's game, but a man of his experience must surely be better placed to see how that could be taken out of context. Only himself to blame. As a highly-paid pundit (we assume) to a broad audience, he absolutely should be taken to task for it. It hasn't been difficult for other pundits to adjust to. Whatever his opinion on the subject, he has to understand that comments like that will generate negative publicity and is absolutely nobody's interest to spout, whatever your own personal opinion on the subject matter. He's also a bit shit. His voice is going, he cuts people off at awkward interludes and feels very out of touch with the modern game. You wouldn't miss him should be be replaced. At all. Even before his comments at the weekend. Edited August 15, 2022 by Fatty Facesitter Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
