racist comments on bbc's england coverage?

after Michael Owen had his interview, and was mentioning all the great strikers he aspires to be like, Shearer, Lineker, Van Nistelrooy etc, Hansen, Lineker and Shearer were ribbing Ian Wright over not being one of the listed strikers, and I swear i heard him say "you know why that is........ i'm a brother"

by saying that, isn't he saying that Michael didn't include him because he's black?

Ian Wright is very tongue in cheek with a lot of his comments and I'm sure they all know that he didn't mean anything by it :D

very true- all meant as banter.

but could you imagine the outcry if the comment was said like that from one of the other presenters!!:eek:

As a 19 year old this kind of language is common place. As above, its tongue in cheek and not intended to be taken seriously

But I do concede TV with sensitive types potentially watching (not necessarily anyone here) isn't the best time perhaps

As the others have said , you did hear correctly , even what you typed was pretty much spot on . But without the pictures to accompany the words , it would be very easy to mis understand the comments .
