Speak for yourself :D

Yes, fair points Andy.

All of the air time being given to women's football I find hard to understand. I mean, is anyone really interested in that? In just seems to be a far worse version of the men's game to me, and I can barely name one female English player.

I believe that some criticism has been shown to the fact the we say 'women's world cup', whereas the men's one is simply called the 'world cup'.

So, when it comes around next time it may be called the 'men's world cup' I reckon.

Think I might start playing netball instead, they have better skirts. Mind you, it was on TV recently that a school has banned girl's from wearing skirts full stop.

No wonder I still live in 1973, it's far simpler :)

It was a time when people seemed far less offended (that's not to say they weren't) but looking back at the likes of Bernard Manning etc, it makes you wonder.

No sense of humour now, everyone is offended by things that aren't aimed at them directly, and looking to change everyone elses opinion and outlook to suit their own which is bloody depressing at times :(

Have you noticed at the beginning of Porridge it states 'may contain some out dated language' and a scene has been cut from an episode of Minder where Terry does a Indian accent :doh:

You can't and shouldn't change the past, just accept it was Great Britain then not PC Britain!! And stop the Pride marches, not everyone agrees but know you are out there so just get on with life as no one really cares.

Off to tint my eyelashes now :gay: :lol:

I have noticed this kind of thing Andy yes. I watch Talking Pictures a lot, and I have seen films on there and, aside from the kind of warnings you mention, I have noticed the odd word here and there muted out.

You can't change history, these things were there once and acceptable. It's a bit like watching a war film and taking Hitler out of it. These things, right or wrong, should remain.

Just my little uninspired view of course :)

Luckily our generation didn't experience Hitler and his ideology, and the now PC brigade need to think themselves lucky they didn't either.
They don't know how lucky they are, our grandparents were the ones who had the right to complain but they just dug in and got on with it!!

Britain has lost the Great, for now anyway.

That is so true for our previous generations Andy, and one of the values I try (not always successfully) to live by.

I rarely heard my parents complain, it would have to be something really drastic for them to do so.

It appears some aren't grateful for what many people died for Paul, they are just obsessed with changing the future into what they think it should be like :(

We are probably the last generation to have any real respect and thought for what the previous generations did for us!

Paul,
don`t forget there`s also women`s cricket and even women`s rugby now! TBH I think, in the beginning you had TV, with 2 channels , and you could put good plays, good films and you could even put the best sport on too. Limited space so the very best material vied for air-time
Now there are so many channels, esp. sport, they`ve got to find/make `content` for their subscribers to `consume`. So we get all these random new cricket competitions, night games, 20 overs, - plus womens football / rugby etc. The netball world cup for Christ`s sake - niche or what? There`s just an insatiable demand for more and more `stuff` to fiIl the channels. But doesn`t it detract from the excitement when there`s ALWAYS some kind of sporting event, isn`t the mens world cup a big deal because it`s only every 4 years? Less is more and all that? Bit like starting Christmas in September . ;)

As I turn on the news there are many serious issues to contend with, some people really do have it bad, just now I've seen reports of all the missing people in the Bahama's still with the critically bad weather they have had. Yet you find it depressing that SCS are selling Christmas sofa's ;)

I try to stop watching the news so much, I like to know what is going on in the world but I think you have to try to steer you mind away if things are affecting you.

I'm not sure the increase in channels is a cause for all the extra pushing of women's sport at the moment, perhaps more so the reason is all of the equality issues and such like.

You certainly can here Andy :) The more modern name for them is meatballs I think. Although to me, that sounds worse.
