I need a rant too !!..about friggin ITV !!
« on: 02/11/2008 23:07:40 »
Why oh why oh why do I get in, turn over to watch the grand prix on ITV in fifteen minutes to find that they bloody well go and tell me the result at the beginning of the news just before they show you the race  ? Why couldn't they say that if you do not want to know who won then turn your volume down for a minute !

Well, I am so pissed off that I'm not even going to watch the highlights now !!..that's one viewer they've lost....you $$&&*&^* bunch of stupid ^^^nkers !!

Roll On BBC next year !..where, we'll be able to watch it advert free too !!

Not only that...I'm a Ferrari fan too !!..arggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!



Yes, it's true !!....this might be quite alien to our American chums but over here, programs on the BBC are with no commercial breaks for haemorrhoid cream every 5 minutes !

Because the stupid miscreants who run ITV let it be known that Lewis won and he's the Maclaren bloke...yes..yes..great that he's a brit and the youngest ever winner of the title but Massa is the Ferrari geeza !

You whinged about ITV giving the game away. I'd recorded it to watch tomorrow and I've diligently kept away from the TV all evening. THANKS PAL!

Actually Nigel Mansell won......riding a tandem with Damon Hill !

I never get to see the full prog and always watch the highlights so I have to play dodge the radio, tv and internet news items when ever it's on !

My apols for ruining it for you..still chums ?

Vrrooom Vrrrooomm !! *excellent impression of an F1 Grand prix car*

Yes, yes..I stand corrected, but I was referring to the whole championship !..which..I admit I poorly made evident.

Well, at least Ferrari won the constructors !

Why do you need to tape Antiques Road Show when you've got Beaver and JimBob?

If you hate frigging ITV, don't frig it.
