Yep.

Although there was no need to go public with this as it wasn't on air it's about time for a shake up. Keys is stale and needs replacing with Jeff and Andy Gray is and always has been a glory hunter commentator who kisses ass.....can't stand him.

I cant see the problem. Women are physically inferior to men and its not wrong to say they were expecting a howler due to this inability to keep up with play (and lets be fair, what do women know about football and the offside rule anyway.)

The better response was from King Kenny.

Kenny asking the Sky reporter, if they were alright with a female journo … Kenny asking the Sky reporter, if they were alright with a female journo being in the room.... Brilliant..

i thought it was funny

Neither of them are doing tonights game.... suspension or termination, place your bets now.

too right x

Disgusting really.

I thought Sian Massey had a good game on Saturday.

And fair play to her for taking all the kits home to wash and iron as well.

Andy Gray is one of the best commentators ever. I grew up listening to his commentary, will be sad to see him go, but if he is fired it would be understandable.

Termination please.

Sexist pigs.

Don't see why there should be any punishment, I have heard commentators say the same sort of thing about the male officials.

Exactly because it's a woman it suddenly becomes sexist, if you can't stand the heat.......

You look like a bloke. Whats the problem.

The recording is here i.dailymail.co.uk/i/p…mp3 when i first read the story, i assumed it was said in jest, but listening to it, they sounded deadly serious.

oO both gray & keys should be replaced by...COLIN & JUSTIN......to teach us about men on the ball

Some funny comments ^^^

but .. the remarks were specifically sexist.
link to see a fuller transcript here
Having a go at 'female linesman' i.e. Sian Massey, then at Wendy Toms and then at 'charming' Karen Brady.

Keys has a sneering attitude to all sorts of player and officials, so there is nothing new in this TBH. As far as I know he hasn't done anything in his working life,except comment on others, no working his way up through the reffing ranks, turning out on a Sat/Sun/dark night to officiate, keeping fit etc etc. Where does he get off with his snidey jibes? At least Gray was a prof. footballer and many would say, an excellent one.

Ironically the two macho dinosaurs were wrong about the offside decision and yes, a person of either sex who is a football supporter/fan can understand the offside rule - well more or less, considering its present incarnation.

Imagine if she had been a Muslim or Asian woman referee....the poo would have really hit the fan

They were stupid for having the mic switched on,but people are entitles to their own opinions.....the thought police do not exist as yet to the best of my knowledge

we can only hope they have got rid of gray for good, the guy is a joke..awful commentator/pundit

They cocked up, simple as. Shame if they loose their jobs over it but they should keep their blatant sexist remarks to themselves or at least save it for discussion over drinks at the boys club.

I don't think they will be terminated (I hope,like andy gray) and they are entitled to their opinion but to say she doesn't even understand the offside rule was abit pathetic, she obviously does or wouldn't be there.

Just downloaded the new FIFA 11 commentary update.

Not much different, although when my girlfriend went on it, Andy Gray shouted at her to 'put that ******* controller down and get back to the kitchen.'

(blatantly stolen from sickipedia)

well sky sacked rodney marsh over a "joke comment" so i'm assuming they'll do the same to them

They may be crafty and shift them to ESPN. If not I'm sure itv will want to get hold of gray.

girls cant throw stones either

Their biggest mistake could be attacking Karen Brady.......she holds a fair amount of power and has many close allies in the boardrooms at the big clubs which could make theirs and Sky's job difficult.

With the precedent they've set sacking pundits in the past then Sky should definately sack them or it looks bad. Was funny seeing Sky News slating them both earlier as well X)

She doesn't have any friends in the boardroom at Spurs.... though I'd also guess its mostly down to who she's slept with? She does seem to be a particularly unpleasant character, which I assume is the reason for the attention she got.

No-one wants friends at Spurs I don't think she's unpleasent compared to most directors etc......it's just that she's been very succesful at her job and she's a woman that has disrupted what they see as a man's game. (which we all know is really rugby )

Sky really hangin their employees out to dry. Surely not the most ethical practice from an employer!

pipe down sweetheart

Whats said in private should stay that way, how many of us have slagged off our bosses to friends and work mates, would we deserve to be sacked for it?

If it had been live on air I'd have very little sympathy for them but Gray and Keys should be allowed to have their views whatever they are.

We will get to the stage where commentatators will be scared to make any sort of comment in fear of upsetting someone.

women in football is wrong, i go to football to get away from women.

jeez, they'll be letting them drive cars next!
