Shabby treatment

I've been appalled by the treatment by BBC TV sports news of Jennifer Ennis. Who had the "temerity" to come second in her event in the World Championships. 2nd mind you.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Shabby treatment

I agree especially as she's a Sheffield lass  Wink
It's a wonder the BBC didn't suggest she lost her MBE.

Congratulations to her for coming second.  it's a good stepping stone for the Olympics and will give her an incentive to carry on Smiley

Re: Shabby treatment

The TV sports commentators often talk a lot when they have nothing to say.

Re: Shabby treatment

Firstly, I didn't hear any of the Beeb's comments about Jennifer Ennis. Not sure who she is.
But they were a bit unfair about Jessica Ennis!
As for Mo Farah, when I watched the newspapers' review on breakfast TV, it seemed he was headlined on all the back pages and many of the front pages too.
He was certainly given star billing in the DT.

@Heloman, your correct. Sorry I was referring to the BBC, they seemed more interested in the end of the transfer season than actual sporting events.
