A local woman who has 150 TV channels is outraged that two of them are showing football matches as Euro 2020 get into full swing. Deirdre Connolly hates football and told us she’s absolutely sick of it.
“When I’m flicking through my channels, why should I have to see football on some of those channels before moving onto the next channel? It happened twice at the weekend and it’s not good enough. Why should I be forced to see several seconds of football when I don’t like football? I’ve a good mind to get my illegal dodgy box taken out.”
Deirdre also has Netflix, Amazon Prime and several other streaming services as well as her 150 regular channels and although only two of those channels are showing the games she believes that’s too many.
“I don’t like football so there should be no football on any channel ever. Anyone who disagrees with me is a Nazi. And racist.”
Professor John McIntyre is an expert in human psychology and says tensions often rise in households during big sporting events.
“We studied the behaviour of over a hundred Irish families and found very definitive differences in personality between people who like sport and those who don’t. For example, the European Football Championships are on every four years and people who don’t like football spend the entire month complaining about it. However, soap operas are on every single day all year round and people who don’t like those simply don’t watch them.
“We can therefore conclude that those who don’t like football are pathetic whinge-bags who prefer to spend their time moaning about something they don’t like rather than just watching something they do like and shutting the fuck up about it.”
