Good shout and we've saved a pile of cash with less pig snouts in the trough.

Did anyone really believe the presentation would be enough to sway opinion? Or, any other reason come to that.

I certainly do not go along with blaming the BBC for the decision.

That was made a long time a go although everyone had to go through the motions of pretending otherwise. Mustn't allow the chance of luxury away days for the delegates to be given up.

I'm sure the Murdoch papers & media will get a lot of mileage out of blaming the BBC, and murdoch's trained monkey in the Cameron camp will ensure that there will be an official government inquiry about the Panorama program...

Good. Might make for less media coverage especially if we go out after the first match.
Much as I like 'local' football, big tournaments leave me underwhelmed.

Hardly! In fact when you consider just where it's going theres a fair chance of there being a lot more in the trough!

Just not our lot!

I am also very glad that they did not get it. More than enough "moidering" about sport as it is. Imagine if they had been successful, they would then expect to win the damn thing.

Some terribly uncharitable people may suggest that Russia would be the least likely country to *ahem* make waves *ahem* about corruption within an organisation or society.
