I can’t change my holiday to the hotel we want and upgrade the room to a honeymoon offer but i can cancel my booking and lose £500 and rebook as a new holiday.
I guess I’ll spending all day on the phone to first choice tomorrow

Footballers with nice trendy haircuts. Where have they got it done when we have been in lockdown for over 3 weeks? Pogba has a nice design shaved in his which wasn’t done 3 weeks ago

Exactly my thoughts! Professional footballers seem to be inhabiting a totally different world to the rest of us.

E sports being reported on BBC sport like it was a sport. Computer gaming is not and never will be a sport. You can even watch it, live. Wow.

That fat kid in his bedroom, he is a real sportsman, not a lazy git.
Have you seen the money these people play for. Saw something briefly the other day and someone had won £34M in his ‘career’ and even built himself a gaming house. 😂

How did you feel about Pacesetter and Metzy both being called out for aimbots in Warzone tournaments this week? Disgusting, eh?

I watch a lot of esports and I promise you couldn’t get close to the skill they have.

Sure, but it doesn't make it sport.
It must annoy you that you don’t get to decide that. They have to physically exert themselves (aka perform a physical task by using mouse and keyboard or a controller) to compete against others. That’s the definition of a sport.

You probably want the word exert to mean something physically taxing but it doesn’t mean that. They are sports.

Come on 🤷‍♂️

It's obviously very skillful, but it's not sport.

Surely it's a whole new category, "gaming" or something??
