HallnotOates Wed 07-Sep-11 16:46:58

In the past it would have been chat lines. Aimed at gay or straight men.

It's sky sports. Even during the day the golf advert they keep showing goes, in a movie trailer kind of way,
'There are many who are long, but there's only one longest on tour...'

For golf kit. Seriously.

Channel 5 highlights are on early evening and sky highlights the next day (during daytime) will be dodgy add free.

The gay chat line ones actually had oiled up men dressed as builders.

cripes! thanks for the warning.
yes i suppose i should trawl through hours of cricket be more vigilant but im a lazy sod.

sadly he LOVES cricket

NarkyPuffinLovesDiane Wed 07-Sep-11 17:07:09

If he loves cricket the add breakes probably annoy him. If in doubt just sit in the room with him whilst doing something else. Or wander in and out. He'll fastforward through a couple of overs just to get it off the screen. The gay chat line adds were from channel 4/5 american football coverage in years past. They were very 'greasy YMCA' in concept.

Let's hope

im weeping a little that no one really cares about this

SPORT ( surely for all ages) with porn adverts in it.

Late night tv has adds that are banned at different times of the day. They target the market. Sky Sports is aimed at men. Late night the adds are aimed at men.

Yes, it deeply fucks me off. Not as much as this though. This is morning tv. I am a woman who enjoys football, but Sky make it clear through the stuff they choose to show that they're not aiming it at me. Their 'multi-room' and 'sky plus' adds show the mother and daughter recording other things - or watching tv in another room - whilst the father and son watch the football.

I wonder why Richard Keyes and Andy Gray found it such a supportive environment for their behaviour hmm

I think I know which ones you mean now. They were on during the American Football recorded last night. I checked - because of what you'd said- and they are pretty bizarre. Women on a bouncy castle in bikinis smiling and trying to be sexy whilst their eyes say, 'I wonder if 'Candy' would drop me at ASDA on the way home? I need some fabric softener and a white sliced...'
