    "Murray is a Scot. I'm English so although I like the Scots as a race I find no reason to support them in sport." How did you feel about the Lions? Team GB at the Olympics? By the way, the Scots aren't a race.

    A lot of people complain about World Cup football dominating the tv and press coverage but the BBC went bananas over Wimbledon. It was on nearly every channel simultaneously at times and even radio Bristol had regular in-depth features. Imagine a local Scottish radio station doing this if an English player was in the final. I confess to finding tennis absolutely dull and only watched it fleetingly and not intentionally when switching to a channel that I then found had been commandeered for the tennis. Murray is a Scot. I'm English so although I like the Scots as a race I find no reason to support them in sport. Thank goodness it's all over. Tennis apart from Wimbledon is a minority sport in the UK. Let's hope now that Murray has won Wimbledon we shan't have a repeat of the press/tv/radio hysteria if he wins it again.

    It has been said that in the next year Mr Murray will earn about £15 million. On that he will pay very little tax as he lives in Florida. Also there are many more people far more deserving of a knighthood than him.

    I do feel that I should mention the fact that in 1977 we didn't honour many sportsmen or women nearly so much as nowadays. The whole honours system has changed a lot since then.

    Virginia Wade won in 1977 but as she's a woman she obviously not a person.

    ********** ATTENTION PLEASE *********** I want to make a warning to people thinking about entering this competition. The Advertiser ran a similar competition to win a pair of Crystal Palace tickets to one lucky reader if they made a winning suggestion for manager, Ian Holloway's column in the newspaper. One "lucky" person won, and was promised two tickets by Glenn Ebrey, editor of the newspaper. He promised his young son they would go and watch the match but were let down by Glenn and the Croydon Advertiser. Next they were promised tickets to Wembley should CPFC make the final of the play off, which they then did. No tickets again. I hope people read this and boycott the competition as it is likely there is no prize anyway!

    He has made no such comment that he will be donating his winnings to charity. He makes a great deal more from sponsorship. It seems that some people would prefer he be made a saint before he gets a knighthood.

    Most people give their loose change to charity, not their entire prize money which equates to their entire wage packet. As for sportsman not receiving a Knighthood, I suppose you would like to see Sir Bradley Wiggins stripped of his Knighthood, along with the many other Sportsmen and women. After that shall we start on the Celebrities too, Knighthoods are awarded to people who have contributed to their Country, whatever their Status or background. We seem to be a very negative and judgemental on people who have worked hard to achieve in this Country. Its about time we got behind them rather than knock them. I have no interest in sport whatsoever, but I do recognise the results and dedication of hard work when I see it. Over the years we have come just about last in everything, we are just beginning to make headway and achieve results for goodness sake be pleased about it. Unless of course its the Eurovision Song Contest, that is a complete farce.
