James *@#&ing Haskell

It seems that Le Hask's “torrent of vile abuse” aimed at Martin Scelzo towards the end of the England v Argentina match, captured by the referee’s microphone, has caused a bit of a stir.

ITV were quick to apologise but if TV companies are going to broadcast the feed from pitchside mikes then they have to expect to capture a certain amount of industrial language, especially given that Haskell had just been struggling to remove Scelzo’s thumb from his eye socket.

Or perhaps they should just dub in a more palatable translation: “I say old chap, jolly bad show you bounder.”
