English Soccer Analyst Fired By Sky Sports After Sexist Remarks Surface

Oh, Andy Gray. Making off-color remarks about a female linesman was not the best career move.

Sky Sports fired the famous soccer commentator after he was caught on two separate instances saying disparaging things about Sian Massey.

“I can see her from here. What do women know about the offside rule?” the famous voice, who gets paid more than $3 million per year, said.

Andy Burton and Richard Keys were suspended for their roles.

More footage after the jump.
