Boycott the X-Factor

On GMTV today they were praising Simon Cowell for what he did - saying how smart he is to generate all this extra publicity. They're right and it sickens me that some people will fall for it - and he will benefit financially.

I have nothing against making money and running a business but this is just not ethical - big... mistake Simon - you are messing with people's lives - Lucie is a very talented singer and I am sure she will survive and prosper - but think of the stress and heartache Simon put her through last night

Plus - he said he would judge on the last performance and he didn't - the boys did their best effort so far in the show - and it was still so much rubbish compared to Lucie.

Share this with your friends - let's stop the rise of Simon Cowell and teach him the power of the public!

My Facebook group has grown almost 1,000% today - keep it up!

Boycott the X-Factor

I am big fan of X-Factor, but Simon Cowell has lost all credibility this week by allowing Jedward to stay in the competition after so many weeks of criticism.

Let's all boycott the programme, by all means still watch but don't vote, so they will lose revenue from the telephone calls and the competition will become a farce as the public choose not to choose.

If you are a Facebook member you can join my new group and add your comments to the protest.

Let's show Simon he can't manipulate the general public in such a cyncial fashion.

Time for change in Football world?

I'm not a Chelsea fan, far from it, but after watching the appalling decisions made by the referee last night in the Champion's League semi-final against Barcelona, I did feel a bit sorry for them.

These glaring errors can not go on. I do feel sorry for referees a lot of the time, who have to make a difficult call in a split second, sometimes with limited viewpoint. The problem is, with big screens in stadiums and the watching TV audience it is now very obvious, very quickly when a major mistake has been made. This damages confidence in the referees and in the bigger picture harming football.

So why not put some level of TV review in place, but limit it as they do in the NFL. GIve each team the right to 2 or 3 reviews only per game - so it is te mangers decision if he thinks there has been a major error to call for the 4th official to review the TV coverage. A limited number of reviews will not slow the gamne down too much and I believe will result in fairer results and more confidence in the referees.

So come on FA, UEFA and FIFA, time to act
