(complete with a raft of incorrect prices - both of Mike Ashley's purchase and sale) But now - hey presto- the credit crunch doesn't apply to sport...isn't this danegrous stuff for the BBC to be touting?..aren't you supposed to offer us facts? Put yourself out of your misery and stop 'blogging' Sat 25 Oct 2008 19:37:38 GMT+1 stopthepress http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/mihirbose/2008/10/sports_leaders_dodge_the_crunc.html?page=60#comment3 Mihir will you be reporting on "Downturn '08"? Looks like the BBC have bought the rights.

I normally like that you give us a different view of the sporting world and try to inform us of the political background etc and as I started reading this week's offering I thought there would be more of that alternative perspective. It seems though as if mixing it at these breakfast meetings etc has gone to your head, in between the Salmon sandwiches and St Paul's Cathedral drivel perhaps you could have told us how sponsorship is no longer just a luxury, how is it commercially a good option etc etc. I understand the trials of being sport editor involve you attending these lavish functions but please try to tell us what happens at these events and what relevance it has to us or the story and not just this self-congratulatory piffle. I apologise if this comment offends.
