You just have to see how BBC reported and showed the Coventry goal, try it's best not to get any flares and show no fans on the pitch. They soon show MK Dons when something they do or is highlighted as wrong.

Also BBC are bad at giving any team places or tables in the league, until MK Dons manage to be in relegation, then they feature that big time.

Really!

Well, the report I watched on Auntie Beeb clearly showed both the flare (with Nichols clearly being referenced as having to make a clearance he'd rather not have done) and the pitch invasion. With footage of stewards manhandling pitch Invaders.

By all means be critical of the Beeb when it's factually incorrect, but there's little point in inventing a false narrative to suit your agenda. That's the sort of thing KFC would do. I genuinely thought we were above such nonsense.


It’s great how much we are agreeing recently.

Is this the same BBC that makes Peaky Blinders, The Archers, The Today Programme, used to make Top Of The Pops, and stuff of that astonishingly high standard?

Is this the same public-funded NI & Income Tax-dodging complicit elitist agenda-ridden untrustworthily biased BBC that violates equal pay laws while overpaying its "talent" e.g Gary Lineker many times what other public servants eg. whoever the UK Prime Minister is at the time get paid, via payments to the "production companies" of the formerly employed but now "self-employed" overpaid "talent" & their tax-free "loans" which never get paid back to their offshore bank accounts? ;)

As I've already mentioned above, feel free to critique them when they're in the wrong. As you have.

The FA Cup coverage wasn't in the least bit biased. I my opinion it was balanced. They showed the flare on the pitch. Referenced it, showed the pitch invasion, and showed the stewarding.

I don't work for, or have anyone who works for the Beeb who's a relative.
I don't buy into the biased Beeb narrative. Never have.

I think it's the same as the Beeb's supposed left-wing bias, i.e. it's there in certain people and departments, but not in others.

The BBC is a bloody huge organisation and inevitably every part of it ends up getting tarred with the same brush.

Lame, Alby.

AFC got fined by the FA for disrespecting us...so the BBC should be too :D

Oh, is this the program/scoreboard issue? When did that occur? How much. I didn't think it had happened yet? :?

We didn't put Coventry's name on three of the scoreboards but we got away with it.

Just recovering from shock at that comment, Lt Dan ! Sitting down with a stiff drink, recovering. I thought to work for the BBC you had to be a paid-up member of Momentum, and to have signed the "Politically Correct Magna Carta" ?

For the bias argument, I think it's best to focus on the national media as a whole, rather than focus just on the BBC.
There are plenty of national media outlets that are pro-AFC and anti-MK. There are some that are neutral at best. There are none that are pro-MK and anti-AFC. That's the problem. It's an unfair fight as we have no-one fighting our corner in the national media. That might not annoy some Dons fans, but it can't be disputed in the same way the perceived BBC bias is being.
Anyway, I just pass that on to those still fighting the fight because, as I've previously stated, the new Bertie doesn't get worked up by the unfair prejudice against us.
The new Bertie turns the other cheek at MK scoffers, pulls up his pants, and walks away in a carefree manner. 8-)
