Makes me cringe when the desperate to be offended brigade start tagging Talksport on Twitter calling for him to be sacked.

Why are people so keen for someone to be sacked anyway?

Probably a goner. He's had his day.
They didn't have their 1am show either. Still had the title on all the online broadcasts, but was some bloke interviewing Terry Venables. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Parry had been let go, he talks so much bollocks now and Graham isn't a half bad broadcaster when he's left to it. I wonder what he did to upset the talksport brass enough to end up with the 1am slot for so long, next to Parry? He's sounded like he's on the verge of either a nervous breakdown or physically assaulting MP on a regular basis, he needs a break.

I think i can safely say, bringing up someone's addiction problems in front of a public audience to counter a perfectly valid comment about a football team has been over the proverbial line for some years, it's not just 2017's fault.

Parry acted like a prize bellend because of his own problems consuming alcohol, I think that TS would have every right to out him if they felt he'd breached any of their rules or bought the reputation of the station into disrepute - yes, i understand this is Talksport so the bar is set pretty low, but still, rules is rules.

It shouldn't offend anybody. People shouldn't call in or whatever to ask for the guy to be sacked. Massively twatish thing to do but react by not listening to his slot.

Id love to have been a fly on the wall when Mike Graham found out about Parry...hes always having a go at Parry for making a fool out of himself on twitter after a drink, now he's probably wrecked both of their radio careers doing it, I bet Graham went ape shit lol.

Lets face it though its not like he's been racist or homophobic or anything really nasty, although it was out of line I hope its not the end of him.

It's drive time, it's Adrian Durham and Goughie and after 5pm we're going to be totally kneejerk and scathing about Spurs. Well, they've not actually said it yet but I'm pretty sure that's what will happen.

Yes I read them at the time, but why is Joe Public offended by them?
I don't think it's necessarily that people are offended so much as he's now categorically confirmed that he's a detestable human being so people don't want to listen to him any more.

Fair enough, I think he's a harmless fun figure

Jim White and Tony Cascarino talking Tottenham right now, doubt will be anything positive from them
Cascarino called for Spurs to sell Lloris at the start of the season because he made an error. Didn’t mention who should replace him. But why worry about that? Just say anything that comes into your head and collect payment.
