Apologies, first world problem here. So basically Wimbledon is replacing my favourite television show (which I REALLY want to see) DD loves it too and she's upset that it isn't on.

I need to know what show you mean before I can say if you are unreasonable or not.

Is it pointless?

Samcro Fri 01-Jul-16 17:55:21

Wimbledon is once a year for two weeks. YABU.

YANBU. It's the same with the football! Regular viewers get shafted because a minority want to celebrate kicking a ball into, or hitting a ball over, a net.

But add in football and tbh i might as well get rid of terestal tv

Yes, I'm missing pointless too sad

I love tennis, especially Wimbledon, and it's on for 2 weeks a year - that's two weeks you have to miss your show, versus fifty weeks I don't get to see mine....

As I say to DD (3) - it's nice if everybody gets a turn, and yours lasts waaay longer than mine! grin

AuldYow Fri 01-Jul-16 18:09:07

I miss Pointless too but I love Wimbledon & it's only for two weeks wink

WankersHacksandThieves Fri 01-Jul-16 18:16:31

I don't mind the tennis being on, i just miss Pointless. I think I've seen them all now anyway - either that or I am getting sooooo fucking good at it....I suspect the former grin

Yeahbut if you watch Doctors that's been off a month already for footie, and with Wimbledon and the olympics won't be back until September! No fair!

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Fri 01-Jul-16 18:41:50

People being fit and active in a country slowly being overtaken by diabetes and obesity..... God, yes. Get it off the tv and a crapoy 'game show' or whatever pointless is, should clearly take precedence here!

WankersHacksandThieves Fri 01-Jul-16 18:44:29

Oh lighten up Mum people aren't getting any fitter watching tennis than they are watching pointless.

WankersHacksandThieves Fri 01-Jul-16 18:45:30

In fact even less so as Pointless only lasts half an hour, the tennis can be on for feckin ages.

YABU - much better than missing stuff because of sodding football.

alltouchedout Fri 01-Jul-16 18:52:20

If you were complaining about golf or cycling or darts coverage I'd be with you but I love tennis so YABVVU ;)

usual Fri 01-Jul-16 18:57:39

I can sit eating cake watching Pointless or Tennis.

SuffolkNWhat Fri 01-Jul-16 18:59:26

IT'S. TWO. FUCKING WEEKS. OF. THE. YEAR!

(Turning into my mother)

MrsJoeyMaynard Fri 01-Jul-16 19:00:36

Since when has watching sport on TV made anyone fitter or more active?

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Fri 01-Jul-16 19:04:17

Yes but it sets a better example and might.... Just might.... Inspire someone to go out and play it

Do you play tennis with your dc?

For every one of you who doesn't use their tv in summer because of all the sports, there's someone like me who only uses their tv in summer because without the sports there's nothing I want to watch! You all get the rest of the year, let me have a few weeks of telly grin

ForalltheSaints Fri 01-Jul-16 19:13:44

It is only two weeks of the year. As it is the only sport that seems to be covered on tv with equal time for the women and men's game, even less reason to complain. It's only five weeks or so until the football season starts again!
