Just sat down to watch the highlights programme. The show begins with a résumé of all Premiership clubs season so far. All teams are analysed but London Irish are not mentioned. Have I got this wrong? This omission follows BT's mistake in giving the incorrect Iriish v Leicester score(19-8) & compounding this by displaying the incorrect Table(9 pts for Irish).
I know I need to stop being a boring anorak but we are constantly ignored by the media. Apologies if my observations are wrong.
I promise to 'get a life' after this post!

Flatman made sure we got a mention, he was very complimentary. I’d there was a year to ringfence it’s now. We’re competitve enough in this league as we’ve shown a few times. Going down his year wouldn’t benefit anyone and would just be a waste of a year. Flats believes in us, it’s good enough for me

Yes Flats was very complimentary about us after the highlights but we were not mentioned at the start whilst the other 11 teams were reviewed.
I promise to move on now!

Flatman was really decent about us, I guess they were trying to be diplomatic at the start. What would one expect him and Shanklin to say, and if they did say the inevitable, they’d probably be criticised even more...

I was also pee'd off that we weren't mentioned, but was heartened by Flats comments as it just not just me that thinks we can survive the drop!!

Relegation, whoever it is would probably benefit Bristol.

In the match "report" in today's Daily Telegraph, the only mention of London Irish is in the scoreline at the start of the article, not mentioned in the report at all (Sm164)

Why would the media give much / any attention to the worst team in the league?
