Hamilton Academical Football Club have taken the step of sacking a commentator minutes after the final whistle of their defeat at home to Ross County last night (3rd February 2021)

Their reason for this, was because the commentator came back to his duties a few minutes late after the half-time break and explained the reasons why.

Once he realised that he hadn't pressed the button to turn his microphone back on, he turned it on and told the watching audience that he apologised for them not being able to hear him for a small amount of time, as he had "been away for a Jobbie" at half time.

The clubs reaction to him doing this was unfair and unjust. They publicly released a statement on their Twitter page, which included an "apology to anyone who was offended" by the words used by the commentator.

I can't think of a single person in this country who has ever been offended by the word Jobbie. If anything, the overwhelming majority of the country would find it rather amusing.

During the tough times of this current Covid-19 pandemic, I think it is a disgrace to sack someone and apologise for this person's actions, when all they did, was add a little bit of light-hearted Scottish humour to a tough time for everyone.

I call on the board of Hamilton Academical to reinstate Bobby Bulloch to his commentator duties as soon as possible.
