Absolutely ridiculous coverage from the BBC.

Radio 4 sports bulletin at 8.25am consisted entirely of the women's football and an interview with some wittering chap about the game yesterday.

Not a mention of

1) F1 and the controversy around Hamilton's win
2) Australia v India cricket world cup
3) England men's game
4) Mcilroy winning a golf tournament over the pond with a last round of 61
5) Nadal winning a record 12th French Open


But we are all wrong:
The BBC says it was a massive success. Repeat - A MASSIVE SUCCESS.

Yeah but
1) who gives a excrement about men going round and round the block in noisy boy racers
2) who gives a excrement about which former colony wins at bat and ball
3) we won on penalties against who???!!! 1000 years of civilisation and all they can come up with is the cuckoo clock, and we’re supposed to be excited about a bunch of tattooed millionaires beating them at the 13th hour
4) who gives a excrement about Scottish bat and ball games
5) who gives a excrement about bat and ballgames played by posh people. With bats that have holes in them.

Just watched Australia come back from 2-0 down to beat Brazil 3-2, entertaining if nothing else.

Plenty of VAR controversy again

BBC have been universally panned for their lack of diversity, equality, being ageist, etc etc over recent years so now they have gone to the other end of the spectrum and over compensate at every opportunity.
Havn't seen much of the Womens World Cup coverage but i did notice during a USA game the other night that they had a female presenter and three female pundits on the progamme.....fair enough, all of them rightfully there as they are former players and have their insights but how come there wasnt a guy on the panel....women get on match of the day etc so why not the other way round ?

With transgender issues these days, you never know who is on the panel.

Tune your wireless to BBC 5 Live - plenty of coverage and 5 Live Sport from 7pm is always a good listen

I think it's cool that women are now more into football, but the BBC really are annoying me over it.  They are effectively promoting the tournament as being the equal of the men's game, but it is 100 years behind it, so it's really no comparison.  In a way, it's too late.  

The BBC should just admit that they spend their vast sums of money poorly, and the women's World Cup is one of the few things they can afford.  If the beeb actually stopped funding their many radio stations and paying their presenters too much, then they could afford ALL the England men's games, some live Premier League games, maybe the Champions League, the Cricket World Cup etc., but they're stuck with the women's game as there's nothing left after SKY and BT have taken them.

The women's game will never have the male tribalism built up over 150 years, so it will lack true supporters.  It's good to see it improving, but let's not start thinking it's important to most viewers.
