After his remarks relating to the football abuse in saying that they are 'not real men' who are coming forward because they should have dealt with it when they were bigger and stronger - IMO Bristow is a total and utter idiot
who should be banned from 'playing' darts (note I do not say 'competing' by
his federation.

YANBU, he has deleted some of the tweets now. A lovely blend of victim blaming and homophobia. I was expecting him to start claiming his account had been hacked this morning.

He's a revolting thick knuckledragger. His victim blaming is indefensible and I think he should be sacked from his position as a sports commentator with immediate effect.

Sky Sports have sacked him. Good.

Good. I should hope so.

He's an absolute wanker.

Good riddance to him.

He's an absolute prick, I could list the adjectives I'd use for him, in fact I've been doing so all morning. He has so angered me.

Greengoddess12 Tue 29-Nov-16 11:14:31

Yes they have sacked him.

He should publicly apologise to all those victims and then piss off for ever.

No messing. Good on Sky Sports.

What a vile example of a human being.

JaneJeffer Tue 29-Nov-16 11:18:36

What a horrible thing to say. I saw the men who were abused on TV the other night and it was so upsetting.

I don't know why he has a job doing commentary anyway as it was practically impossible to understand a word he was saying.

Brian Moore replied in a very dignified way imo.

CaraAspen Tue 29-Nov-16 11:20:13

Of course YANBU. The man is a moron, clearly.

RachelRagged Tue 29-Nov-16 11:23:23

Never liked him ,, this validates that dislike .

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Tue 29-Nov-16 11:23:38

He fully deserved to be sacked angry

No doubt he will be the next arsehole trying to rescue their career in celebrity big brother.

What a cunt. unfortunetly I think he won't be the only "real" man who thinks like that. I'm glad he's been sacked as they will all see how totally unacceptable this way of thinking is.

squoosh Tue 29-Nov-16 11:38:31

He's a despicable creature.

redshoeblueshoe Tue 29-Nov-16 11:46:12

Its attitudes like his that helped all those bastards get away with this.
I'm pleased Sky have sacked him.

SquatBetty Tue 29-Nov-16 12:01:04

Saw those tweets yesterday and so glad to hear now that Sky have sacked him. What a totally thick fuckwit he is.

Mrsemcgregor Tue 29-Nov-16 12:21:33

Dickhead. Needs to crawl back in his hole.

AgentProvocateur Tue 29-Nov-16 12:27:46

He's a despicable thick Neanderthal. I'm glad he's been sacked. I hope his dick falls off.

sassymuffin Tue 29-Nov-16 12:40:11

He is clearly a vile individual. How he also uses the word 'poof' in place of the word paedophile gives further insight into this ignorant disgusting excuse for a human.

LouiseBrooks Tue 29-Nov-16 17:10:11

As ugly inside as he is out. Vile, vile man.

OurBlanche Tue 29-Nov-16 17:21:12

To be fair, he is what he is! He has never been any different. A man of a certain age, a 'real man/cockney!?' who was accused of DV, earns his money playing darts - with the whole oddly divorced from reality thing that brings.

He has never been all that reconstructed.

Best of all is that his rank stupidity and loathesomeness reminds us all that such people exist, male and female. We can now remember to look for them, not be surprised when they pop up and can, therefore, be better able to tell them to FUCK OFF when they do!

SukeyTakeItOffAgain Tue 29-Nov-16 17:25:41

It takes a special kind of bastard to publicly say what he has said.

He said something about you'd never get rugby players whinging about this. This is despite former England hooker and commentator/pundit Brian Moore - nicknamed The Pitbull in his playing days - bravely talking about his own experiences of abuse a few years ago. Luckily Moore is an eloquent man and has shot Bristow down in flames.

Really glad he has been sacked. If he had any decency - he hasn't - he would donate some of his enormous wealth to a charity which helps survivors or childhood abuse to apologise..
