Disadvantages: see above
..... I hate WIMBLEDON. Not only does it dominate BBC 2 every afternoon (fair enough, it is the minority channel), but why oh why (as they say on Points of View!) do they have to put it on BBC 1 in the afternoons at the same damn time!
I cannot even escape to my favourite radio station (BBC Radio 5) for its usual afternoon fare of talk, interviews. news and current affairs - because they are doing a ball by ball commentary. In my opinion, the only thing more boring than watching a tennis match, is having to listen to it!
Just to recap, I love the BBC - but I cannot be the only guy who loathes tennis!
