Football - again!!!!

People who know me quite well may harbour a suspicion that I am not a football fan.
They would be right. Not that I go on about it, of course, although my definition of football as a gang of twenty two idiots chasing a bag of wind round a field has certainly stood the test of time and is well remembered by various members of my family. So I have to stand up and be counted. For me that definition sums it up perfectly, plus the issue of all the millions of pounds, euros etc which said idiots are rewarded with and the stupid habit they have of jumping all over each other whenever one of them kicks it into the net.
If you have read this far, you will no doubt be getting my drift. So you probably won't be too suprised that I am considerably less than impressed by the way the TV schedules have been messed up by the latest dose. Instead of banishing the football to an obscure satellite channel, (Who wants to watch it anyway?) the men in suits are depriving me of my usual fixes of Emmerdale and Corrie!
What is wrong with these people???
(As you can see, withdrawal symptoms have well and truly kicked in.)

Spot on! You probably don't like rugby union either but for a unbias comparison have a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DICdXTPYgpA&feature=related You will need to cut and paste into your browser of course.

Rugby - marginally better - lots of fit men. Loved the music too. ;)

Not having a tv, it doesn't matter to me which channel the football is on...not having my national team in the competition, neither does it matter to me who's playing and when.

Nonetheless...hmmm...is it even worth me defending the football games here? Though if you want debate, then I'd venture that there's more drama in 22 idiots kicking a bag of wind about than there is in Emmerdale ;-)

We're with you on this one, what can be more important than Eastenders and Springwatch, surley not amateur dramatics in a field!


Jennyta said...

Trousers, sorry but no, there isn't! ;)
Paul, yes they've even messed up the times of Springwatch this week. (Don't like Eastenders, though.)

When I met you, you didn't sound Australian but this blogpost sounds like the work of a whingeing Aussie! Emmerdale? Corrie? What's up wih you woman? EastEnders is the only soap opera that matters! That damned May - she should be burnt at the stake! And any more whingeing about football and you can join her!

Jennyta said...

Eastenders is total, depressing rubbish, YP and who is May? I thought you'd like that post - not a lot...but...:)
