Reminds me of the story of the English commentator hired by an American network back in the 70's. He was asked on the air, during the broadcast of some North American Soccer League match, how the NASL teams compared to English teams. His curt answer was "Fifth Division", which may well have been accurate. He was promptly fired. I remember reading about it right after it happened.
Does anyone have any details of this story? (ie: name of commetator, name of network, name of teams playing, date?)
