But with the coverage of the six Nations it is not difficult to fall into the ABE camp
For example on when talking about the Daybreak talking about rugby on the day before yesterdays Matches.
"When England beat France tomorrow they are guaranteed the championship" .But its the BBC who are worst offenders . The coverage often appears to consist of
England,England,England,EnglanAnd after the Welsh Victory the female presenter turned to the camera and said
d,England,England. Oh an some other teams also are playing in the six nations but never mind about them . England,England,England,......
"Well that was just the starter, The Main Course is yet to come with England play France.Todays Scotland Ireland Game will see on of these sides remaining in the Mix for the Chapionship though you would not know it from the BBC coverage and I bet even during this Match we will still have reverences to England
Now I accept after their victory England are clear favourites to win the Championship and the Grand Slam and have a healthy 36 point goal difference compared to Wales' 19 and if both were to win on March 9/10 then I can see England putting more points on Italy at Home..
Though there still no reason to dismiss the possibility of Scotland defeating France on the final day or Ireland beating comprehensively to top the Table.
It is still to soon to call but from the very first weekend you wouldn't know it.
Even if England were heading for the wooden spoon the coverage would be concentrated on that .
You could argue that this is because there's not a BBC England with a sports department just as there's not a English Parliament.
But would it make any difference to the England,England,England,...... bias from the BBC
It is a sad reflection of the major issue of the Union where only one Nation counts even without its own parliament.
I very much doubt it and it may be childish of me to respond with ABE but that's what I will continue to until we see the other Nations in this competition treated equally.
