Not very sporting....

Amused by BBC1's news programme tonight when sports presenter Sally Nugent, about to give the Premier League results, said: "Match of the Day follows, so if you don't want to know the scores, please look away now."

After waiting a couple of seconds, the scores were displayed, followed by Sally then reading out all the individual scores....

It's not the first time it has happened over recent weeks, but you do wonder if anyone on the editorial side actually spots such crass stupidity?

Ditto - except that my wife added "anyone with a grain of sense would turn the sound down"

A similar announcement is made on the ITV news, followed only by the scores being displayed on screen.

Just hope now that Everton put an end one of Manchester United's cup honours ambitions later on today...:-)

I have to look after my other half, so couldn't go - feel a bit drained now, although probably not as much as the players on both sides...:-)

We've been saying for a while that Everton's name seems to be written on the FA Cup this season for some time now.
