That's pretty awesome. No delay for live broadcasts in case this sort of things happens? But, but, but, YOU'RE supposed to be the Nanny State, not us!

ITV apologise as Histon hero shows his tackle and fans turn airwaves blue during Leeds FA Cup giant-killing

Everytime I show people MY tackle they love it... Dude probably needs to wash his or something.

Damn foreigners and their bad hygiene.

ITV apologize to viewers as the hero of the match, a player from the city of Histon, wagged his penis at the camera from the locker room; while earlier fans who had grabbed a microphone beside the field, were singing songs with curse words.

The FA Cup is the tournament in English football whereby amateur teams can potentially defeat professional teams and earn pride and money - or in this case, prove the old saying that football is a gentleman's game played by hooligans.

would've loved to have been in the editing room when they realise that some fans had nicked one of the pitch side mikes.

They'll probably get a rather sizable fine for doing that. Clubs are responsible for their fans behaviour.

There is a powerful drive in human males to bond together and fight the young males in the next village. In the old days though you used to keep all the women you captured. Seriously, though I find this behavior interesting ... a little like watching mountain gorillas or chimpanzees in the wild.

Actually, I'm from the rural southern USA...and I hate baseball and American football (except high school football state tournaments), I typically vote Republican, I can't stand organized religion, I read the WSJ, the Economist, and occasionally Harpers, and I have watched and played football(soccer) for over thirty years. I also believe my parents must've shaken me as a baby.

And remember: because they won, Histon moves on to the next round, and the further they get, the better the odds they'll have to be put on the air again.

Me neither. I read the first sentence as "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah swearing and full-frontal nudity blah blah blah blah."

The reaction to getting Swansea in the next round was priceless.

<backstory>Histon are a small village (round the corner from me as it happens) and they beat a professional football team 3 leagues above them, which is quite an achievement really. Hoping to get some moneyed Premiership team in the next round such as Manchester United, the dressing room let out a collective "aw" when they discovered they were playing a second rate Welsh team instead. Classic.</backstory>

Histon, the people's village.

Wait, wait, wait...we're missing the big story here...LEEDS LOST TO HISTON???? ARE YOU F'ING KIDDING ME!?!?!?! HOW PATHETIC HAVE LEEDS BECOME????

For my fellow Yanks that don't follow this, it's as if the working class people of a small town in Kansas formed a football team, and then beat the Packers.

That's pretty impressive then, although if you had said the Lions, Bengals, or Cardinals(of pretty much every other year) then I wouldn't be so surprised.

More like they beat some team in NFL Europe. Leeds are only in League 1. Its more like some podunk community college with 200 people formed a team and beat someone in Div II.

I was trying to go for a team that was good back in the 80's and early 90's, but have been shiat since then. Maybe the Niners would have been a better example.

Leeds were a great team for a fair while until their chairman wagered a LOT of cash through transfers and loans on making the Champions League in 2001. They failed, and over the next 6 years sold everyone decent, were relegated twice, almost went bust before Ken Bates waged war against the government and any COMPETENT buyers to retain control of the club, fail to get promoted and now job out of the FA Cup.

Any American equivalents who bet so much on success and got shagged for failing?

Gosling: And remember: because they won, Histon moves on to the next round, and the further they get, the better the odds they'll have to be put on the air again.

They should be on the air - potential giant killings always take precedence, hence why it was this game that was aired from the second round - histon are a tiny village flying high in the conference, playing the biggest team (aside from leicester) possible - had 'magic of the cup' written all over it

hopefully, as they are at home again they will air the swansea game next round, as technically swansea are better than leeds, although still...swansea

but as the shiats at ITV have taken the cup I have no idea how they will approach the 3rd round, but if it was on BBC you could be rest assured that it would be aired

I can't wait for the recession to get worse so that song gets popular again.

And why exactly hasn't the DailyMail tried to blame this on the BBC yet?
