Sky have said they won't dumb it down to any great deal.

OK, I'll phrase it another way. Name me a live sport on Sky Sports which is presented by a woman.

Georgie Thompson used to present the Formula 1 until she left.

Used in Sky Sports News. Not used in any (maybe golf) live sports presenting. joe Brolly doesn't give a continental f**k about blondes on Sky Sports News. He was making a derogatory comment about Sky Sports coverage of GAA, and he made an arse of it. He was trying to insinuate that "this is how Sky do things, look at it, isn't it pathetic". My point is that he's talking through his hole when it comes to live sports coverage.

If he wanted to say that one of the reasons he dislikes Sky is because they parade young good looking women up and down Sky Sports News every day 24 hours a day, then he'd at least be accurate.

Your point seems to be that Sky Sports News use pretty women as a lowest common denominator approach to satisfy their male viewership. You may well be right, you need some hook to keep lads watching a poxy yellow ticker tape 24/7. But my point is that that fact is irrelevant to the discussion about their coverage of live sports, in my view.

But anyway, as other lads have said, this back and forth is ridiculous, and not worth taking too seriously. They are right.

Is there women on Sky that don't meet the above formula? Honest question.

OK. Now I get what you're saying. That is different to what Brolly is saying.

Brolly says their formula is to have a baywatch babe presenting, this is not true.

Your point is that if there *IS* a woman presenting or within camera shot of a Sky Sports camera, she has to be a babe. Now that I haven't checked, but at least I could accept that that is more likely. Again though, as others have said, are there many women on TV who do not fall into that category? Certainly the women on RTE and TG4 I mentioned before wouldn't look out of place on Sky Sports. That seems to be an industry approach rather than a Sky Sports 'Exclusive' :D

Jesus, I should hope it is different to what was Brolly was saying. Sky take it to extremes though, like I said, I could never imagine Clare Balding starting off her career there.




That's Angela Powers, she presents a lot of the Rugby League magazine shows on Sky.

Rachel wyse's accent is a bit grating , but I have read her column in sat indo and was slightly impressed with her knowledge and opinions on various sports but esp hurling and football. So I'd have to say if she actually writes these articles, then she knows enough to merit her job at sky IMO !!

That's a big 'if'.
I have my doubts.

Yeah, if we're going to have a "Baywatch Babe", we may as well pick our own.

Is Aine from Sligo up to much these days?
