Wayne Rooney’s X-Rated Sky Show: Manchester United Player’s Face Pixelated On TV

by | 10th, April 2011

WAYNE Rooney has had his “TV show axed”. He has been “dropped by TV”. Can it be that whenever Rooney is on the magic box before the 9pm watershed, his face will be pixelated by Sky Sports?

It’s a harsh judgement on the Manchester United’s player’s face and, vitally, mouth, but the demands of the 3D HD TV experience may well necessitate some degree of censorship.

The NoTW says that “Rooney has been kicked off kids’ TV”. Dan Wootton, tells readers:

Just days after the England star’s foul-mouthed on-screen rant Sky chiefs axed his Street Striker show – as viewers can’t forget his romps with vice girls.

Given that Rooney’s show is pre-recorded, and so not like live football, Anorak wonder why the sweary bits can’t just be edited out and then repackaged as an X-rated version for broadcast on one of Sky’s adult channels?

Wootton goes on:

Our revelation that Sky TV has axed his money-spinning kids’ show Street Striker tops a week of complete humiliation for the England star.

The revelation in Rupert Murdoch’s News of The World that Rupert Murdoch’s Sky has ended Rooney’s show after the player told Sky Sports viewers to “fuck off” on the telly is indeed the definition of a scoop.

As for Rooney’s “complete humiliation” – this would be the same Rooney who also last week scored the winning goal in United’s Champions’ League quarter-final with Chelsea. Football may be tribal and monocular, but tabloid reporters have cataracts.

Because Anorak is a family organ, we have decided to forgo the gallery of Rooney and instead feature the more wholesome images of Jennifer Thompson, a prostitute introduced to us by the, er, NoTW:
