Alison Bender, a football host and presenter on ESPN, tweeted yesterday afternoon that this wasn't Moyes' first misdemeanor.

"These are not the first off camera remarks I've heard from him aimed at a woman so it makes my opinion a little different," she said.

But in an attempt to give a level perspective she also commented that, "This Moyes things is such a tricky one to comment on. I think we need to take a certain amount in jest/heat of moment."

A BBC spokesperson has since said that, "Mr Moyes has apologised to our reporter and she has accepted his apology."

But according to The Independent; "The Football Association has since confirmed that it is "seeking observations" from Sunderland regarding Moyes' comments."
