Bloody BBC & Sport!!

Saturday afternoon and evening and what is the best the BBC1 can do - wall to wall bloody rugby!

Starting at 2pm and finishing at 10pm nothing but rugby. I quite like to watch a game of rugby but this is taking the p***.

I can't believe that the majority of people who would normally watch BBC1 on a Saturday afternoon and evening would want to watch all that rugby.

I don't know how to spell all of the expletives I would like to use and the ones I can spell would get me banned.

They seem to think that everything has to stop for whatever is the sporting event of the day and sod everyone else. We are not ALL sports fans.

Its about time they dedicated one of their alternative channels -BBC3 or BBC4 as a sports channel and left the flagship channels alone. After all the majority of dedicated sports fans now have cable or satellite and soon everyone will have Freeview.

Thank goodness for Cable and Freeview, at least I will have an alternative.

BT. I think you'll find there is a good game of Cricket on ITV4 just now - that's Freeview.

I agree it's annoying when they disrupt the programs for other things, but BBC 1 has a load of rubbish on on Saturdays so what's it matter, watch one of the other channels

Lighten up

the world cup is about to start and there will be nothing but football on for a month. :0)

Rearrange RUGBY to arrive at what you get when playing the game :0)

I don't often feel so strongly about something but I have actually sent the BBC a complaint about this.

Maybe it will be read out on 'Points of view'. Suitably censored of course!

'nothing but football on for a month.'

Yes - but I don't ever remember it lasting for 8 hours like this RUGBBY;-))

Even though I love rugby I do have to agree, this is too much.
Weekend TV should contain some variety.

In case you havn't noticed when the rugby finishes, football starts.

. . . sport appears to be one of the most popular things on telly, especially football, rugby, snooker, darts, F1, WRC (and so on) and if it's popular it attracts an audience and if it attracts an audience, any broadcaster wants to show it.

Don't watch much sport myself, mainly motorsport when I get time.

Personally I think it's a male macho/testosterone fuelled hobby which includes the consumption of several alcoholic drinks to make it appear better than it actually is.

You mean like barbecuing?
