One of the BBC's recent decisions - in the "less sensible" category - was to downgrade its website sport discussion boards some months ago... so that we are now confronted with the legendarily naff 606 Debate area. Or not, if we have any sense. What it achieved, I gather, was an economy that kept Jonathan Ross safe on his £16 million remuneration, as he'd have really missed that 500 odd quid they saved. Anyway, "out of sheer interest", as they say (though I realise it's no defence), I happened to click on the Add your views, reports and player profiles to the Dumbarton section of My Sport link while on the My Team page. Yup, it gets you through to a browse file proudly announcing "Page1 of 0 for Berwick scottish football" (a mathematically challenged proposition), before adding, in helpful explanatory mode: "No articles have been described using this word or combination of words." So fret not, your license fee is safe.
