Tell him he's right, you two should be spending quality time together, then turn the football off, put a soppy romantic film on instead and curl up next to him with some tissues...

See how long it takes him to say you can just stick to mumsnetting.

Bugger - we've already had 'Leave the Bastard'

Dh is a little bit like this - he will watch football on his own, but he likes having someone to 'ooh' and 'yes' 'nooooooooooo!' with. He doesn't seem to notice that I'm not actually watching the screen though and that I'm most likely asleep.

I went to bed to mn and watch tv in peace while he watched said footy. A few mins later he came to bed and actually tried to turn tv to football!!! How rude. Apparently I was mning and so not watching tv. Tsk.

Why does he care? confused

HecateAdonaea Wed 20-Jun-12 13:05:22

What does he want you to do instead while he's watching the football?

Tell him to turn off football and you'll turn off MN wink

He is being unreasonable, no one gets to decide what you do of an evening apart from you.

But it's over now so you might get some sex right? wink
