Sam Newman axed. About time, too.

Misogynist and serial goose John "Sam" Newman has been axed by Channel Nine, according to this article in The Oz. Channel Nine don't deserve any kudos for this as they let the whole imbroglio drag on for too long before acting.

Of course, as I hinted at on The AFL Player Spectator, Newman will probably require his stint of unemployment to be a longish one before he changes his attitudes towards women, but this is at least a start.

I suppose the next question is this: Who will take his place as the token buffoon on The Footy Show? Billy Brownless?

And while we're looking at sacked sexists, are there any others that should also lose their jobs, apart from anglican bishops and WA Opposition Leaders?
