fourm member I did say I knew it was serious. The only thing I can think of which would have made the situation worse would have been to show the US flag!!! As you say - who knows how the North Korean government will react.
fourm member No apology necessary - I'm not easily offended and it didn't occur to me that you might have been having a go at me.
However I do think that it is unreasonable for me to be accused of being negative just because I don't like sport (not only on this thread so I'm not having a go at anybody in particular). I have never said that I don't want it to be televised, just that I don't want everybody else to be inconvenienced.
At the risk of being accused of stereotyping - if there was a very prestigious weekend festival of classical music (9 am Sat to 10 pm Sun) and BBC1 covered the whole of it live ........... Oooops sorry, several thousand football fans have just had a coronary 'cos they'd be deprived of MOTD!!
Yes, I do know football fans could also be classical music fans but I think the point is clear
