BBC Wales, hmmm.

Recommended Posts

Been watching the Welsh Open snooker on the BBC Sport website.....could the Welsh be any more biased if they tried! Any other snooker tournament in the home nations that the BBC broadcast is hosted by Hazel Irvine (a Scot) with Stephen Hendry & Alan McManus (Scottish), Steve Davis & John Parrott (English), Ken Docherty & Dennis Taylor (Irish), Terry Griffiths (Welsh) and a few other names from aroung the UK & Ireland. Yet BBC Wales rips up that list and has a Welsh presenter (?) and drags out Darren Morgan and Dominic Dale (both Welsh) as their pundits....and all they talk about is the Welsh players and prioritise showing Welsh players matches. 

Could you imagine the outrage and fuss if the BBC did the same for the English tournaments. :D:D:D

What no welsh ,irish ,chinese or philipino LGBT commentators outrageous!

I forsee not so far in the future homegrown events or films with so many factions in it there would not be any ethnic people in it.

At least 250 lead characters representing every country in the world plus all colour variations in those countries plus all sexual preferences and every disability there is, just think what the good life would cost from 4 main characters to several thousand because we no longer can favour just one type! , football stadiums wouldn't have any onlookers the stands would be full of commentators!


Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

Err?

Are those chaps Welch?

The highest an American player has ever reached in professional snooker was Jim Rempe, who was ranked 101st during the 1987-88 season.

Pool Hustlers like Jim Rempe & the like couldn't really "Cut a Rug" in the Snooker world. There's much more to Snooker than out & out potting!!

With respect - Jim would have struggled to be in the top 500 in today's game!!

I've been to a Snooker centre in Leeds recently, where 2 or 3, 12 - 14 year old kids could have given him something to think about!!

You are not keeping up with trends Ant and are making assumptions.

How do you know that Darren Morgan does not self identify as a Scot. 🤪
