In a few weeks time the 2015 Six Nations will kick off,so here is my “six nations wish list”. Its not that every game not be analyzed within a World Cup context. No, It is simply that they stop all the pre-match “entertainment”.
This is you…..miming bands…dance troups…and while we’re about it…no be-jeanned drunks in kicking competitions..and how about doing away with those on pitch interviews..”We may have lost 45-0, but we will learn the lessons..”
And no television people wandering up and down the field pre-match as players try to warm up (but how about a kicking competition aimed at the head of such people), And no interviews with coaches during the match and a one-way trip to Channel 5 for anyone bothering some poor battered soul on his way to the dressing room at half-time with a microphone.
When this silence is achieved we can contemplate life and sport without a blitz of noise and someone telling us when to clap.Has any fan ever wanted more of this?
Perhaps we could try this as an experiment….one lasting about 20 years.
