Well that’s just about it. Having given up most Rugby Union and Cricket, and now F1 the BBC have just reneged on every sports fan; but keep damn football on idiotic Match of the Day several times a week. The worst sport gets the most coverage from the Beeb. Savings have to be made apparently, £35m out of total savings of £150m. Hardly seems a fair division of losses. I bet they don’t cut EastEnders or Strictly Come Dancing or such rubbish. No it’s got to be the slightly minority (in their eyes) sports that get chopped.
It stinks that our national world renowned broadcaster treats their budget in such a cavalier fashion, it stinks. The director of BBC sports says that many sports are being retained:
‘with long term deals already in place for the likes of the Football World Cup, Wimbledon, the FA Cup, the Olympics, Match of the Day, UK Athletics and the World Athletics Championships, the European Football Championships, Rugby League, Snooker, the London Marathon, the Boat Race.’
Notice anything? Four of them are for football. It’s a wonder Wimbledon and the 6 nations aren’t next. Makes you want to pay a subscription to Sky. No nothing can that bad.
