Terrorist cricketers, not!

Dean Jones, former Australian cricketer, has been sacked from his job as a commentator after refering to South Africa's Hashim Amla as a "terrorist". Jones, a commentator for the Dubai based 10 network, was commenting on the South African v Sri Lanka series when he said "The terrorist has got another wicket". He has issued an apology and apparently spoke with Amla after the game.

No better than Tony Greig who did the same thing in regards to an asian bride.
Greig said "i wonder if he had her flown in"

It's mind boggling how low class and ignorant some of these sports commentators are...just when you scrape the bottom of the barrel you discover there is further depths to which we can descend.
