Today before a ball was even kicked, before he’d had a chance to nit-pick and find something to gripe and bitch about, Sky Sports Scotland’s Smirking Idiot had already embarrassed himself.
When asked about the early shut-down he went on an incoherent ramble about it being wrong, without giving a single logical reason as to why it was.
I actually wish he’d have been put on the spot on the matter.
I wish he’d been pushed to give a straight and honest answer. It would have been worth it to hear what shambling nonsense poured out of his mouth without a single cell of brainpower behind it.
This reminds me a lot of something I heard about the status of the bug over in the US: they say you can judge pretty accurately whether someone’s been vaccinated or not by asking them how they voted at the last Presidential election.
By the same token, you can usually guess how people feel about the shut-down coming early by asking them which team they support … if that doesn’t tip you off then nothing will.
Ask them to give you logical reasons though and prepare for that flapping sound.
The Smirking Idiot avoided the kind of questioning that would have produced that response, but he was not to be outdone when it came to looking like a clown.
After the match he went on a rant about a Celtic goal that shouldn’t have been given to the extent McFadden was openly mocking him about it. It’s getting that way now; his on-air co-commentators must be embarrassed at having to share a stage with somebody so petty and openly biased.
This is what their bosses have exposed them to, of course; the public ridicule of taking part in a clown show with this muppet. You can tell that some of them are discomfited by it, but what choice do they have?
Their bosses keep putting this guy on the air.
And as long as they do, these folk will continue to be subjected to this kind of grinding humiliation.
The best thing they could do is privately tell their higher-ups that they don’t want to work with him anymore, but as none of them will do that they’re stuck with it.
Sadly, so are we … as amusing as it at times, I think we could all live without having to see him when we put the telly on.
