Snooker's not a sport! As someone wiser than myself said 'if you can do what you're doing with a cigar in your mouth, then it isn't sport'

You can't have a cigar in your mouth when you are leaning over the table.

Re: Football

I've said it afore and I'll say it again. I detest sport with a vengeance but there's nothing wrong having it on telly, as long as it doesn't interrupt more popular viewing.

Both ITV and BBC have multiple channels so, if they want to compete with each other, it should be on ITV2 or BBC2 as there's mainly only rubbish on those channels anyway.

I haven't had the use of a telly for about three years now, but I do like to use Catch-Up to watch earlier transmissions but, unfortunately, the sports which for me include football (most hated), tennis (second most hated), snooker, darts and anything else in between should be shifted to the secondary channels for the most avid fans and not mess about with MY programmes!

Never realized you taught Mups BV., or are you engaging in incitement.

Sport should have it's own dedicated channel imo.

I feel just the same as you Pats. It's not only women, I know quite a few men who dislike it too so why do they assume everyone is gagging at the bit waiting for the next match.
