NASA decided to send a shuttle into space with two monkeys and an astronaut on board. After months of training, they placed all three in the shuttle and prepared for launch.
Mission Control Center announced, "This is Mission Control to Monkey One. Do your stuff."
The first monkey began frantically typing and the shuttle took off.
Two hours later, NASA's mission control center announced, "This is Mission Control to Monkey Two. Do your stuff."
The second monkey started typing like mad and the shuttle separated from the empty fuel tanks.
Another two hours later Mission Control Center announced, "This is Mission Control to Astronaut... "
At this, the astronaut shouted "I know, I know -- feed the monkeys and don't touch anything."
It's an old joke - and granted, we don't know the exact words Roy Hodgson used, but IMO, he must have been holding Andros Townsend in the highest esteem to liken him to a monkey in that story.
Yet the press, and organisations like the Society of Black Lawyers jump all over it. Recommending that the FA should hold thorough investigations and to 'educate' Roy Hodgson.
I'm actually quite angry that Hodgson should be lambasted in this way. And to be told he needs educating is condescending in the extreme. I'm not sure I'd be able to keep my cool if the SoBL said that to me.
Or am I out of touch?
