Now we are in the conference live commentary goes to West Ham.
They are not an Essex team BBC ESSEX are chasing ratings, if they were genuine "BBC Essex" we would expect to hear occassional live coverage of a Canvey game.
We should rename them BBC East London because they put a London team above us.
Ratings that is all they are about. I for one will never listen to them again while they put West Ham above an Essex team.
Do not get me wrong I have no problem with West Ham but could you imagine BBC London supporting Liverpool.
How are our local sides supposed to develop a local fan base when our local radio station supports a non Essex Club just to boost its ratings.
Get them off!! our FORUM and get them on a London site where they belong.
One of the reasons I looked forward to coming out of the Ryman was to hear the occassional commentary of Canvey games as at that time they used to follow local sides. As soon as we got promoted, they follow West Ham.
I know there are more supporters of West Ham in Essex than there are Canvey supporters, our local radio station should support our local team and not chase ratings.
I have decided to start a campaign and I have two messages
(1) BBC Essex we are not in London!!!!
(2) Any supporter of an Essex football team caught listening to BBC Essex sports coverage could wake up kissing Shergar.
I am about to start pushing this message across all Essex boards please join me, spread the word.
Unless of course you do not agree.
I for one would support CLASSIC GOLD, top music as well.
