just get sick of presenting?
a hollowness that he obviously now wants no part in.
good on him.
chasing all of the good ones away :(
I'm coming for you.
I'm refering to that second video, the guy is just a gimp, but it was just bants.
The whole of the uk male population seems to have got on their high horse about how its awful to talk about girls like that, when its happening everywhere all the time. I'm not saying I like the guy, but the country is drowning in a stinking bog of hypocracy.
Like I said, he seemed like a try hard dick, but for the amount of disgust there is about it, there are a lot of guys forgetting about how they act with their mates.
The lineswoman comment was something seperate.
he was in the workplace and clearly making people around him feel very uncomfotable.
if you want to talk about shit like that, do it down the pub OR SOMEWHERE THAT DOESN'T HAVE ROLLING CAMERAS AND A POTENTIAL AUDIENCE OF MILLIONS YOU STUPID BOORISH PRICK RICHARD KEYS.
My main issue with that clip was that it clearly wasn't banter with your mates. It was making wildly inappropriate comments oblivious to the fact no-one else was going along with it.
I'm not so much disgusted by the comments as think he now seems a bit pathetic and, especially for a professional journalist, utterly unable to read people or situations.
the worst sort of male behaviour to have to be around.
i might joke with my very close FRIENDS in PRIVATE about what we might like to do to girls sometimes....but it's always done with a sense of absurdity and the clear realisation that we are looking for humour in our inability to usually do much of anythng with any girls. we almost become charicatures of what a pervy bloke should be.
but keys thought he was the don, deadly serious, and even put his fucking feet on the table to assert his authority on the topic of girls getting 'smashed'. what a prick.
But this country loves a good witch hunt, and before everyone starts kicking off about it, they should take a look at how they act themselves.
Obviously he should have lost his job, just as I would expect to if I said something like that at work.
...and i've actually only come across people that have said....'PC GONE MAD. WOMENS FOOTY IS SHIT/ CAN'T SAY ANYTHING'
But yeah it is a witch hunt, the papers have created a huge noise about it, The Sun said that Gray liked to Perve on girls on the front page today. Page three had a young lady with her knockers right out.
The MEDIA in this country loves a good witch hunt would probably have been a more apt wording. It was the same with Jonathon Ross/Russell Brand. Boring nonsense.
but i'm not condoning the tabloids conduct
i mean, when it first hit, the sun found a picture of the lino in a club wearing her glad rags with a carry-on style saucy headline plastered over the top of it.
i think we can pretty much ignore their input. the idiocy and hypocracy and double standards are so many, they don't even warrent a mention anymore.
if your point is, the tabloids have handled it appalingly, as they handle everything appalingly...then i'm completely with you.
other than on here.
whilst looking fairly sheepish.
Not the shitty witchhunt groups, but actual discussions what 'normal' people are having.
And the amount of lame-o PC GON MAD, KARNT SAY NUFFINK nonsense that's floating around would appear to be rather more than you imply.
True, I've seen a few women have been brushing it off like it's nothing, (and far be it from me to be definitive about someone's reasons for doing something), but some of these women are the type who seem to think that the best route to equality is by matching LAD BANTS with LADETTE BANTS. You see it all the time with women who are too unsure of themselves (for whatever reason), and so they resort to being one-of-the-LADS in order to be 'accepted', and as a substitute for self-confidence.
Anyway... sheeldz listed a few belmish examples he'd seen the other day in one of the other freds. There will be plenty more out there to add to that list.
You can't discuss this whilst ignoring the tabloid's input.
...and widespread radio discussion, broadsheet coverage, tv reports, internet debate, etc
He didn't just resign due to a couple of shitty red-top rags.
I feel for him in a way. What he said was stupid but I've heard people say far, far worse without consequences. If he and Gray are rogue utter twats and everyone at Sky is generally appalled then fair enough but if there's a culture of it and they were just the ones that happened to get caught out and scapegoated I feeL a bit sorry for the way they've been hung out to dry.
in an instant i would guess Keys and Gray were utter twats.
Is Sky Sports rooting utter twattery out of the organisation or are they just the utter twats who got caught?
and Andy Gray as well.
SKY SPORTS LOSE THEIR KEYS
No results found for "sky sports loses keys".
there was definitely an agenda from Sky to get rid, probably to usher in the 3D-HD era with fresh faces. Such machiavellian behaviour is equally contemptible, as is the media hypocrisy. I mean, The Sun slagging off Andy Gray when they objectify women on a daily basis?
Also, it's a perfect media story to deflect attention away from the under-reported phone-tapping story. Naturally, nobody wants to dig their own grave, I suppose.
abortions for some, tiny american flags for others
But it doesn't detract from the fact that any kind of discrimination really shouldn't be happening in the media nowadays, they both deserved to lose their jobs.
Personally, I'm really happy because I've always thought Keys was a talentless prick who couldn't interview a studio guest to save his life. Gray too was massively overpaid and has a huge ego, good riddance.
that said, rumour has it this morning, Gary Neville being lined up to join Sky football coverage. Human being replaced by robots is underway..
then you know you've gone too far. Whilst Gray seems quite genuinely to think women are dim objects (and having had to remove myself from the sexual octopus that he becomes with a drink in him at many many SPL events over the years, I can confirm that he is a bad yin), with Keys, I'm not so sure. It sounds like he was trying to impress the other guys with his BANTS. The awful thing is, he sounds like a schoolkid trying out a phrase that he's overheard in usage, but isn't quite sure what it means, only that the bigger, cooler lads say it, and everyone laughs. He comes across as really pathetic, Redknapp and Souness are massivley embarrassed, it's cringeworthy. Like this-
but otherwise, I did pretty well with my typing up there^. Yay me.
