I suppose it is a difficult balance. Risk upsetting Sky on the one hand, or come across as normal and down to earth for a lot of people on the other. Looking just now at Facebook, for every one or two disagreeing, there are dozens backing what Andy said. There are a few wondering if his account has been hacked too, but I don't know. It sounds like Andy to me, he's shy, but he isn't backward about coming forward when he feels the need. He might regret saying what he said in public, but I don't know about that either.
That said, Andy isn't criticising Sky as such. He's expressing a view about one commentator. If Sky was to take offence at that they would look pretty silly. Cowan will probably hear about it of course, so he will stick the boot into Andy when he's commentating, but when doesn't he? Andy's a big boy, he can look after himself.
In many ways I hope Andy did say it and did mean it. If so he's only saying what I've been yelling at the TV for ages.
Don't think it was hacked teejay, was on both twitter and Facebook.
