Default Andrew Castle pays damages to David Lloyd regarding LTA leadership comments

I know it's the Fail but this is pretty interesting, seems like the Patron Saint of Crap Tennis Commentators finally got what he deserved.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...sociation.html

Quote:
BBC's Andrew Castle apologises and pays damages to David Lloyd after suggesting 'personal problems' could stop him taking over at the Lawn Tennis Association


A BBC tennis commentator said sorry to former GB Davis Cup captain David Lloyd after suggesting he could be prevented from leading the Lawn Tennis Association because of 'personal problems'

Andrew Castle was forced into the official apology after his comments during a rain delay chat with Sue Barker at the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club in Kensington, London.

He has agreed to pay undisclosed damages to Mr Lloyd.

Interest around succession at the LTA has been heightened by the widespread disbelief at recent revelations that current chief executive Roger Draper was earning £640,000 a year.

He is due to stand down in September and leaves what is regarded as a generally under-performing organisation.
A statement published on the BBC website said: 'BBC commentator Andrew Castle suggested there were issues in the personal life of David Lloyd which made him unsuitable to be considered for the role of CEO of the LTA.
'Mr Castle would wish to make clear that his comments were without foundation and apologises to Mr Lloyd for any embarrassment or distress caused.'

It is understood businessman Mr Lloyd was alerted about the disparaging remark by his brother John, a BBC tennis pundit who will be working alongside Mr Castle at Wimbledon.

A joint statement release by the men today, seen by The Guardian, said: 'The parties have now agreed terms to bring the matter to a close, which involves the payment of damages and legal costs.

'However, Mr Castle would like to put the record straight and express again his personal apology to Mr Lloyd. He made his remarks, which were completely without substance, in the hurried exchanges of a live debate.

'Mr Lloyd has accepted Mr Castle's apology and the payment of damages. Mr Lloyd and Mr Castle are pleased to have been able to resolve matters amicably and now consider the matter to be behind them.'

Mr Castle's gaffes didn't end there.

He was accused of causing ructions by announcing at Queen’s that Andy Murray was donating his winnings to the Rally Against Cancer charity fund when the Scot wanted to keep it private.
Murray said: ‘I haven’t spoken to anyone about it.'

Nothing new. Andrew castle is an imbecile. How he keeps getting employed is a mystery. It's tough to escape the guy. Eurosport, Sky and BBC all employ him.

I know! Castle makes Sue Barker look like Robbie Koenig the worst part is that he thinks he's the second coming and didn't really accomplish anything worth telling, so what makes him qualified to speak about players like Federer, Nadal or Djokovic in such a patronizing way

Castle is terrible. He was awful in that charity match at Queen's.

LTA would be better off doing a Kazakhstan here and just buying some players with that money.

Sue Barker would probably be a decent commentator if he voice wasn't so soft.

I still quite like her for inoffensive and nostalgia tinged fluff.

Seeing her presenting yesterday though, me and my old maw both think she's had work done surely?

Ironic that the man who fronts dodgy compo ads should be forking out for damages.

Barker only watches tennis like 3 times a year. The amount of times she's called top 50 players 'unknown' is ridiculous.

I don't like Castle or the Lloyds, and can't help wondering about the nature of the alleged "personal problems" which cannot be mentioned.

Gargantuan prick as Castle is, there has to be something that prompted him to make that comment.

At least Barker won a grand slam (LOL must of been an uber weak era).

Castles best career achievement was making the Quarter Final of Queens. LOL.
