I wonder if his swearing was a factor in his dismissal?
I think it is a bit strange when commentators of sport swear when they are off mic. If you are a commentator, then refrain from swearing until the mic has been removed. It is probably not that hard.
Personally, I think I have a lot to offer if the BBC are looking for a replacement. I wondered if any Islanders might look at the bullet points below before I put them together for my application:
I rarely gamble.
I hate golf with a passion
I was not involved in the 1985 WC final.
I won't swear on air.
I don't believe that reptiles run the world.
I like thin cunts.
I don't give a buck where the cueball is going.
Anyone like to offer any advice?
