...large. It was a bit timely that the PFA hired Reginald D. Hunter to do a bit of stand up at their little back slapping soirée and the fuss it caused as the day after the BBC showed a tribute to the late great Dave Allen.
...it's finally some good sense from the corporation. The corporation should have been more honest about Hugh Porter's absence from the Track Cycling World Championships but would he'd have found that much harder to stomach the truth.
...three blank cheques to this address. Bob Godfrey, animator of a number of classic British kids cartoons along with some more adult oriented animated films has died aged 91.
...Prime Cut. Shergar burgers are back on the news menu after it was announced today that Asda have taken all their value burger ranges off the shelf as the meat contained 80% horse DNA.
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...Wiggo? Bradley Wiggins' share of the Sports Personality of the Year vote didn't quite match Mark Cavendish's when he won the award last but then Mark didn't have Olympic gold medal winners to compete with.
...as planned. In fact it probably couldn't have gone worse for them. Revenge, for that's what the Newsnight “investigation” they actually showed was.
...somewhere in the B.B.C. George Entwistle, director general of the B.B.C. waits for Peter Rippon programme editor who stopped the Newsnight broadcast into Jimmy Savile.
...as Ian Hislop brown noses the BBC? A shameless act of sucking up to the Corporation over it's role in Jimmy Savile's abuse of young girls by a man who is firmly entrenched in the establishment.
...from the 1980s. The comedian, like a lot of people, knew back then.
...League Cup game. I reluctantly tuned into BBC 5Live last night for the away trip to Carlisle in the League Cup, no sponsors here without some readies stumped up, it was the only option.
...he got right in the column. Don't know how long Des Lynam's column about the BBC broadcasting of the Olympics was but in classic Twitter mob style they picked out about the only sentence in the whole piece that was accurate.
...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...what happened there then. Keith Richards doesn't look right with bright white perfect gnashers. It's not rock and or roll.
...it should have been Sir Eric. A national disgrace that Eric Sykes who entertained the country through eight decades has died without such recognition.
