Keys and Gray suspended following sexist remarks

British commentators Andy Gray and Richard Keys, who worked on Fox Soccer Channel during the 2010 World Cup, have been suspended from commentating on tonight’s Bolton v Chelsea game on Sky Sports following sexist remarks made before Saturday’s Wolves v. Liverpool encounter.

The pair, who apparently believed their microphones were off, made the remarks about 25-year-old Sian Massey who was an assistant referee.  “Somebody better get down there and explain offside to her,” said Keys before the game.

She actually went on to make the right call for Liverpool’s opener, deeming Raul Mereiles onside.
