Fellet's fake feistiness

Sky's chief executive John Fellet likes to keep a fairly-low profile. But he's decided to play his part for a skit on The Crowd Goes Wild that indicates life at Sky may be akin to The Office and shows Fellet giving Mark Richardson and "that other guy" a good (fake) bollocking for telling fans on-air that Kiwi fighter Brice Ritani-Coe could get a wild-card entry into Sky Arena's Super 8 event. 

Who woulda thunk it, Richardson got his way in the end, but, in what could be seen as a cynical ploy to draw attention to the event, Ritani-Coe only gets a spot if the Super 8 Facebook page gets 15,000 likes.
