The Sport Thread

For stuff not worthy of a thread of its own

A few years ago I mentioned to a colleague how it’d be nice to see Hazel Irvine presenting more outside of Snooker, the Olympics, Commonwealth Games and so on. I remember them saying that their understanding was she that was very happy with the amount of on screen work she was doing and balanced it with other things - possibly some kind of teaching - as well as the rest of her life. It may have been the same person who said they were aware of a presenter who was going to work with her being warned not to try and ‘out stat’ her, because she’d always be able to trump them!

That means the Crucible is now a closed doors event as a result of the PM's announcement. What a way to start the tournament, first session has fans and now they're all gone when it concludes.

With that in mind, is it even possible for the BBC to consider moving their production and pres team to Sheffield, since there's only going to be players and officials now, and no fans?

Additionally, could they even consider setting up the second comms box?


If they were worried about the public there is plenty of space for them to set up a studio without being anywhere near them. That they haven't is a clear indication that the presence of the public is not the reason they decided to host from London.

There are normally four commentary boxes in the crucible, two per table. The BBC's second table box has been given over to additional space backstage, so while you could put the commentators out in the auditorium, they could have arranged to do this anyway even with the audience in, so again, the lack of a box in the traditional location can't be the main reason for doing it from London.

Crazy the Scottish season starting on the day of the FA Cup Final. I've almost given up trying to work out what month it is anymore - one day it's July, next day it's August - how on earth are you supposed to keep up. Very Happy

Wait, it's only August 1st. Is the SPFL starting it's season earlier than usual? I would expect it to be mid August, not the 1st.

I think they always start the first weekend in August.

Amazon Prime erroneously listed qualifying matches from the WTA tournament in Palermo today. Qualifying isn't usually televised so it was a surprise to see them, and when the matches started the streaming was unavailable.

What are the BBC cameras like for today's FA Cup Final? Is it the same set up as last year's final?
