    I don't know mate, I'm not aware of the finer details of the KG thing. I do think JC has had his image damaged much more than KG did.

    The order of severity of "crimes" has little to do with what we on here think I'm afraid.
    Rightly or wrongly, many people get caught drink driving and don't lose their jobs - that's undeniable.
    Probably because, although you're risking not only your life and limb but others too, if you don't crash and are just caught then the only damage you're doing is to yourself.
    Using racist or sexist language, assault and the like directly involves other people.
    In the eyes of many that makes it a worse offence.
    Which is why KG still has her job and JC probably won't have his for long..

    She was 3 times over the limit at 11:00 when breathalysed, she was on her way to collect her kids, they were not with her when she was pulled.

    Agree his image is possibly damaged for good, if Sky sack him it should be because they have decided that, not the media.

    Also believe not enough questions are being asked about the driver and his motives and parenting skills.

    Agree with your post.
    Why was Gallagher worse? There's a greater potential for serious harm but did she actually assault anyone? But if whilst distracted he crashed into another vehicle, who has the most potential for a serious accident? Is spitting on someone more serious than DD?

    What crime has the other driver committed? Second guessing on motives is making assumptions that can be a distance away from the truth... maybe it was just childish banter?

    I don't agree with sacking but lets not get carried away on assumptions or flawed judgements.

    Maybe, but as Beezerk said it also depends on your profile, I’m sure if it was a Sky cameraman we’d of never heard about it.

    Would the Sky cameraman be considered to have damaged the reputation of Sky?
