Channel Nine has stood down Andrew Johns from Sunday's grand final broadcast following the alleged intoxicated incident at Toowoomba airport on Friday night.
Johns, a regular member of Channel Nine's Sunday Footy Show, wasn't included on the panel leading into the grand final coverage on Sunday.
He was told he would not be part of the broadcast of the all-Queensland grand final between the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys at ANZ Stadium.
It couldn't have come at a worse time for the former Newcastle halfback, who is deep in negotiations with Fox Sports about joining his brother Matthew at the pay TV network.
It also comes a fortnight after fellow Channel Nine rugby league commentator Brett Finch checked himself into rehabilitation following a stint back in April.
It comes after Johns was accused of "disgusting and disgraceful" behaviour, photographed lying on the floor at Toowoomba's Wellcamp airport on Friday night after allegedly propositioning a married woman, who labelled Johns' behaviour "a very bad example".
Helen Wright, who later received an apology from the rugby league immortal, detailed Johns' behaviour on Facebook, saying: "I wish that football commentators [had] more pride and a much higher standard of behaviour in public".
"This is not an example that should be presented to children that were present! Many of the children had taken photos of him passed out. My own sons have played football all their lives and we love the game. But not this aspect of the game. Regards Helen Wright."
