Rodney Marsh Sacked For Tsunami Joke

Rodney Marsh has been sacked from Sky Sports after cracking the following joke.
The ex-Manchester City striker joked David Beckham had turned down a move to Newcastle United because of trouble with the "Toon Army in Asia".
I think the joke is in bad taste and he is an arsehole in general but sacking him? Wouldn't an apology and a hefty payment to charity have been enough? It's not as if Sky have high standards or something.

In other news Big Racialist Ron has been at it again.

ps What happened to Bungers' Record Post Attempt? ;)

Surely the reason they sacked him is because he beat Murdoch stablemate 'The Sun' to a really bad, tasteless pun?

Can't be having that, now can we?
