The grand slams say Naomi Osaka’s decisions about press are ‘injurious’ to tennis. Perhaps they should look closer to home, says Guardian columnist Marina Hyde
This all shows that the powers that be in sport, especially in Tennis do not care about people in sport, but are only there for their own interests and those of the media.
If these persons in power do not change then there could well be no participants in sport for tournaments to take place and they will only have themselves to blame.
Money and power are the root of all evil and will spoil the enjoyment of all concerned, the sport participants and the spectators of sports.
This will be the next area of abuse to be inspected, for we have already seen how participants have been treated by some trainers and managers in gymnastics
Money has taken over most sports and lead to great abuses of power or assumed power, the proposed Super league of top football clubs in Europe is another prime example

A Japanese doctors’ group has urged the cancelation of the Olympics, even as Games organizers reported a surplus of applications from medics to volunteer at the virus-postponed event. With less than 10 weeks until the Tokyo Games begin and as Japan battles a surge in infections, public opinion remains strongly…
So mamy views and opinions, but how many of these views and opinions are from people who have the facts, well I am not sure.
But what I do see is that there appears to be more against holding the Olympics than theree are for, so It would appear that the Games should be cancelled. For to hold the event and the pandemic really takes off it will be well too late for measures to alleviate it.
Suffering and even more deaths will occur, but will those that decide to hold the event be held to account. Even if there are, that is not sufficient for those who will have died or are suffering and their families who will have to pick up the pieces, for nothing could be sufficient compensation to cover all that.

Another own goal by the BBC, funded by UK TV licence payers, is this how they respect the UK, surely enough is enough and the TV licence should be scrapped.

People should be free to watch digital media how they wish to and have the freedom to pay how and when they wish.
Most programmes are repeats, with many of them repeated within the same week.
The concept of TV within the UK is outdated and no one should be forced to have a TV Licence for watching programmes via a television.
Currently people in the UK have to have a TV licence, even if they never watch the BBC and this is completely wrong and smacks of ‘Big Brother’.
The TV licence needs to be scrapped and stations funded differently.
For if people are watching paid for TV, such as Sky, they are effectively paying twice for the privilege and that must be wrong.
The concept of the BBC is outdated and you can not state they are impartial, for they are not, as all TV media is biased in one way or another.
