Fellow sports presenter Andrew Castle saying that in a conversation with jug ears on Thursday he admitted that his tweet was probably OTT.
From what I am hearing/reading around last night's 20 min highlights package: Lineker and crew's puff pieces and analysis, as well as manager/player interviews certainly not missed, whereas the in match commentary was missed.
I watched this morning as usual and it was like watching City's highlights on Youtube, They just show the goals/action without commentary, Wouldn't want that all the time.From what I am hearing/reading around last night's 20 min highlights package: Lineker and crew's puff pieces and analysis, as well as manager/player interviews certainly not missed, whereas the in match commentary was missed.
Exactly.FTR I don't think the Government policy is that unpopular with the British public depressingly, but suppressing someone's views because they disagree with the Government is generally viewed as bad, as it should be, by all but the rabid.
Tons of whataboutery obviously going on, but whataboutery is the most pointless form of debate. You can say people are hypocrites for wanting some cancelled, and not others, whilst doing the same yourself.
If you are a free-speech absolutist, speak up for them all, without caveats, or else you just want people to be able to say the views you agree with.
I'd hope that anyone who voted Tory more than once in the last 13 years would respect the right of those in authority to make mistakes without being hung out to dry.
For sure. I wouldn't want DG's job, stuck between a rock and a hard place.Interesting conundrum for the DG going forward, he’s probably shocked at the level of support for Lineker at the Beeb and will not of expected the disruption caused. It going to be interesting to see if the disrupters are willing extend that support for another week. Careers in the sports broadcast media are much sought after and apart from fellow millionaires like Ian Wright, not many will want to sacrifice their own careers for Lineker.
