A soccer commentator has been sacked after asserting he was late again on air for the second half after going for a “jobby”.
Bobby Bulloch thought he was having a wee chortle by asserting his actions through the break between Hamilton Academical and Ross County on Wednesday evening.
He instructed his co-commentator he “went away for a jobby at half-time” – a slang time period utilized in Scotland for poo.
“I’ve not pressed the wee button after I got here again so apologies to anyone who hasn’t heard me this second half,” he added, earlier than apologising for his language.
However bosses on the Scottish Premiership membership didn’t see the humorous facet.
“A contractor utilized by the membership on summarising / co-commentary duties overstepped the mark this night with a really poor try at humour,” an announcement stated on Twitter.
“The membership did not discover this humorous, and the individual won’t be used once more. Our apologies for this.”
Whereas some had been offended by way of language, others urged Bulloch had been handled fairly harshly.
Many used the hashtag “jobbygate”, with one supporter tweeting: “Completely pathetic sacking a person for utilizing the phrase ‘jobby’. Get a grip, it is not swearing or insulting, simply an on a regular basis phrase in Scotland. You hear a lot worse coming from the pitch!!”
And Bulloch remained defiant, posting his personal message.
“A way of humour is necessary throughout these troublesome occasions… do not forget that the subsequent time you are doing a jobby.”
And to make issues worse, the Accies misplaced 2-1.
