Personally, I have no interest in Football; although out of patriotism I would like England to win. (How likely this is to happen is a matter for discussion - lol).
I accept and agree that fans should have the opportunity to watch the games on TV, but it gets a bit much when the schedules are dominated by football, frequently at the expense of non sporting programmes. As I recall, this occurred 4 years ago during the last world cup.
morddwyd: I hope you do not consider my comments discourteous; but apologies if you think they are. Remember, not everyone is a football fan.
