Actually the games seem to be far better than everyone expected, and that's a bit of a shame for all those who were hoping they would be a flop.
Thus, for lack of things going wrong certain sections of the English based mostly right wing British media are creating $#!+-stirring stories to give the impression that it's going wrong. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-28560983

No big deal really, just the British press once again 'correcting' our thinking.
Where would we be without them eh? :{

I really cannot see the point in it all, just a bunch of losers, competing against a bunch of bigger losers. No real competition.

Strange how the BBC can open up Channel 3 to broadcast this crap during the day time. when they cannot use it for other broadcasts in the day time.

I came back from the games in Scotland to my house in Scotland to watch the rest of the day's games being broadcast from Scotland. I put on the BBC to see an English presenter discussing with an ex-England gymnast how the English team were doing while the cameras followed England around not acknowledging any other teams. The BBC's bias is awful too.

It's true, and it's not difficult to see how this can upset some Scottish people, but speaking as someone who worked for that organisation I can assure you it's really just an honest mistake and absolutely nothing more.

So many people in England have been brought up by parents who witnessed a great 'coming together' of 'the British' owing to WW1 and WW2 that a very real sense of brotherhood emerged on these islands.
.
Those people back then did not in any way see each other as being different - they really were all in it together, but once again this togetherness was exploited by those with an agenda to unite all the islanders into 'Englishness' under the banner of 'Britishness', and that's where the honest mistake comes from - the waters were deliberately muddied so as to confuse them.

One easily recognised example would be the British (union) flag constantly being hoisted as the 'England' flag (much to the detriment of the beautiful St George's) and of course the British media was used as the vehicle to push this onto the islanders.

The move was easily infused in English people, but not so easily absorbed by some people in other parts of the island who were still very much aware of their perceived historical roots, and it was their resistance that eventually brought about the failure of this move to anglicize the British islanders.

Bottom line; honest mistake easily understood in view of the history, no malice intended by those making the mistake - they're lovely people really. :D

Yeah, I can understand it to an extent, but for anyone to not realise that the BBC is unrepresentative of Britain as a whole is doubtful though. They should be more aware of it more than ever at the moment given the referendum is on the horizon (not the Beeb will give it due coverage anyway ;) )

Yes, but this is being presented to the English viewers as an anti-English thing not a management thing.

It would be suicidal for the same Establishment that has striven for hundreds of years to obtain and retain management to allow the viewers/readers/voters to know anything other than what they want them to know.

Oh, and perhaps I should have mentioned in my previous post that the purpose behind this groups' attempt to anglicize the islanders was not for any reason beneficial to the islanders but solely for the purpose of tightening the establishment grip on management.

kinda weird that I live outside Glasgow and when bbc1 comes on either the tv or radio its all about England medals.
As i have said before scots and Irish/welsh and English can go tae Spain on holiday and get on great. its the MEDIA package that runs the UK and is 100% English based.

I hope my fellow Scottish family have the balls to vote YES. 5 years from now if Scotland get independance Englad will want that shiay or sheeye law stuff .

They focus on winners, England top the medal table. Look at the coverage Lynsey Sharp rightly got, Bolt has ran one race and the media attention in him is phenomenal. We're better as a United Kingdom and I think the Scots have the sense to see that.

The Brits generally DO get on great, and yes it IS the media that tells it different, and that media is controlled by a 'package' (as you put it), but they are not English based, rather they just happen to be based in England - there really is a massive difference.
And, if you can grasp that then it really isn't such a big leap to realise yes we do indeed have an enemy - but it's not the English - it's that small group that has always striven to control everybody (including the English) on these islands, and indeed much further afield than these islands.
I would advise that upon such a realisation you might come to understand that we really are 'better together', mostly because in this sense we really are 'all in it together'.

I agree....simple maths....number of population plus number of medals = more coverage.

Bolt has got more coverage then anyone.....is he English?

Bolt is heralded as "the fastest man on earth" and the person who has been called this has always received celebrity status so I'm not sure it's a great example. Proportionally with the medals, the Scottish team should receive at least a third of the coverage.

Bit off topic but in terms of the #bettertogether bit; IMO financially - yes, socially - no. The UK as a whole has stagnated socially and is currently threatening to regress, but that's a discussion for another day.

i wonder how many athletes will plead asylum or go missing & not catch their return flight X)
you wouldn't want to go back to somewhere like Sierra Leone at the moment, better to vanish into the migrant community & get a job at a fried chicken shop

I think a few athletes have already gone missing! I don't know why they taped up the legs of Man logo on the IOM runner's shirt?

It would be great if it was only broadcast in Scotland.

STV's doing that. A Scotland only Glasgow 2014 broadcaster. It may be a wee broadcaster, maybe not as big as the BBC, but still isn't bias. Shows a fair amount of Scotland, but showing other stuff.

(Note: I'm a Londoner. I saw the STV Studios only next to the BBC Studios, and think STV must be as such. I cannot confirm accuracy of this because I have never watched STV, and I don't have any idea if they're broadcasting the Commonwealth Games).
