Just last week we had a Golf Channel announcer make an off color remark about Tiger Woods — and that’s putting it mildly. Maybe I’m talking to myself here when I say that announcers need to watch what they say on-air. Remember a while back we had the story of the women’s basketball announcer who thought one of the coaches was hot but didn’t realize his microphone was live when he said it? Yeah, that was bad. Well Roger Rasheed is following in everyone’s footsteps. Check out what happened with him:
Roger Rasheed, a former coach of Lleyton Hewitt, commented on Williams bottom during a slow motion replay of her match against Chinaâ€™s Yan Zi at the Australian Open.
â€œTake a look at this now. Make or think as you will, ladies, but for me, thatâ€™s a pretty good sight,â€ The Daily Telegraph quoted him, as telling co-commentators Tracy Austin and Nicole Bradtke.
And while the two women found it funny, viewers certainly didnt and broadcaster Channel Seven was inundated with calls.
Though admitting that there had been a number of calls, the broadcaster maintained that there would be no action taken against Rasheed for his comments.
