thank's for the spoiler

I still have 4 eps to watch!


I still think the most blatant one was when BBC still had Formula 1:


The BBC still cover F1 (sort of).

we
were watching the news just before it, and the newsreader finished one
article, then began the sport by saying "Michael Schumacher won".


The last time MS won a race was in 2006.

It's only football fans that get warning before sports results are
read out on the news. The rest of us don't count.

no!

the really annoying thing is that sometimes they do give a warning of the GP
result, and sometimes they don't

I think it's all in the phrasing. You don't need an explicit
warning, the old "And if you don't want to know the results of the ...
look away now".

Compare :-

"And Lewis Hamilton won today's Italian grand prix ,,," which gives you no
time to go fingers-in-ears-la-la-la ....

"And in Formula One, today's Italian grand prix was won
by Lewis Hamilton" is much more considerate.

Otherwise, you just end up having to avoid TV/Radio until you
see the coverage.
