Sky football commentator Andy Gray has seen his television presenting contract terminated after a series of sexually innapropriate comments were made to and about female staff.
The Sky Sports presenter had mocked female Premier League Assistant referee Sian Massey, believing his microphone to be off, only to have his sexist remarks recorded for all to hear. It later came to light that this was only the latest in a string of innapropriate behaviour from the long-standing sports show host.
Andy Gray is not just a TV personality however, but a gaming one too. He has sat in the commentating seat for the FIFA football game series since 1997, but his annual stint with EA’s flagship sports title has now been put into question.
Should EA keep Gray as their title’s pundit? His partnership with Martin Tyler on the series has certainly led to some of the most fluid and entertaining footie commentary in a sports game ever, but has Gray over-stepped the mark? Certainly EA will not want another sacndal on their hands following the colourful lives of Tiger Woods and Wayne Rooney, both of whom have been EA game cover stars.
So what do you think? Leave your answers in our poll below, and feel free to add some alternative pundits to potentially replace Gray too.
