Andrew Castle speaks out of turn

Quote

I don't know if anybody was tuned into the BBC last week not sure what day, but during a rain break there was a discussions between Neil Harman and AC  about the job of CEO at the LTA, Neil Harman said David Lloyd should have been given the job 10 years ago, and was a suitable candidate this time round, AC then said because of problems in David Lloyd's [rivete ;ife he wouldn't be suitable for the job
Andrew has now put a statement out through the BBC apologizing for any embarrassment or distress he has caused to David LLoyd.
I say sack AC and poach Ross from Eurosport for Wimbledon.

I've just read this apology from the BBC. Sounds like Andrew Castle has had his wrists smacked.

I remember the discussion, I'm pretty sure it was last Wednesday. It was certainly during one of the rain breaks. I remember thinking at the time that Castle should be careful what he says, although he did say wouldn't discuss the issue Lloyd apparently had. It made me wonder why mention it at all in that case?

I just think Andrew Castle is a bit full of himself. I don't think it's the first time he's tried to be clever or controversial. It might be the first time the BBC has had to apologise for him.

Speaking of apologies, I wonder if Eurosport ever apologised for Chris Bradman using the f-word in commentary at Queen's. It was during the first day, when Dan Evans was playing. Bradman was repeating something Dan Evans said. The problem was that he repeated it verbatim and I suspect he didn't realise the mic was still on  Whistle.

Andrew Castle is a clown.

He uses Murray's name to boost his own ego.

^^ Just posted on the other thtread TJ, but I think Andrew Castle was responding to Neil Harman's suggestion that David Lloyd would be good. It did seem a bit strange though, especially as AC was commentating with John Lloyd straight afterwards!

I am thinking although my memory isn't what it was, that Andrew Castle didn't commentate with John Lloyd in the later part of the tournament, I know for the final JL was with Andrew Cotter

The final was with John Lloyd and Andrew Castle. It definitely wasn't Cotter. If it had been I'd have ripped my hair out by the roots long before the match was over Smile.

He also disclosed that Murray was paying his Queen's winner's cheque to The Royal Marsden when Andy didn't want it made public.

Has he really? That might make him think twice before opening his mouth again.

Yup. That guy really is something else. He sounds like some random dad that has just been plucked from the audience when he asks his questions. Everything he says has a surprised tone to it. Weird.

There was a strange moment AC had with one of the celebs right at the start- Think it was Mcintyre. But there was defiantly an undertone.
