I can’t make my mind up on this one…
Whilst I think the comments made by Andy Gray and Richard Keys at the weekend were wrong, I’m not sure that SKY was right to suspend them from commentating on the Bolton vs Chelsea match tonight.
I appreciate that they are in the public eye and there are microphones around, so therefore they need to be careful, but do they really deserve to be suspended over this? Were their comments really bigoted, or was it just banter?
The pair definitely need to make live TV apologies to explain their actions as soon as possible, but I think that SKY may have jumped the gun a bit here by suspending them. At the end of the day, it’s football and they’re paid to give their opinions.
What do you think?
