You obviously don't have kids and don't remember being one.

As you grow up you learn to moderate your language and behaviour to what is appropriate to the situation. 10 year olds will understand what is appropriate. 5 year olds won't.

Yes, I do remember being a child, and I always knew what situation the language could be used. It's simply parenting.

Ooops - I seem to have opened a can of worms here. And here was me thinking we might have a sensible discussion about the overly sensitive media when it comes to censoring and/or apologising for sportsmen (and sometimes women) dropping the occasional swear word in the heat of battle.

Fortunately, because of the language barrier, I'm not perceived as swearing over here as I always swear in English.

PS: Also completely agree w/super re children's language.

Nothing wrong with the C word Kwini, seems to make Yanks recoil, whereas in Australia it's a term of endearment.

You can quite easily get away with "bollox" over here as folks don't tend to know what it means. It's frequently said by on tv shows which have English characters; the two that stand out to me are Elementary and Lie to Me. Always raises a smile considering who sensitive mainstream tv channels are.

B0ll0cks is such a great word, so versatile and never understood by Americans, who can't swear any better in English than we can (or would want to, silly and ignorant even to try) in American.

super,
Agree, of course! Not exactly the word I was thinking of, but you're right about the "recoil"!

Good spot, Mac. And a good win for Lawrie. Justin Hicks 2nd, another good result for him.

Westwood also-ran, Pepperell with a missed cut.
And: A name from the past appears close to the bottom of the field: Anton Haig. Once a young gun, chat about an undisciplined lifestyle, now just another pro, seemingly with his glittering future fading behind him.

Look, I'm with LP on this, I think it's silly when commentators apologise when a player swears, most of the time I've never even heard the swearing and have to rewind to pick it up. But, young children are impressionable and will copy what they see and hear: whether that's Wayne Rooney giving a referee an aggressive mouthful of abuse or Wayne Riley mumbling the word bollox off camera.

I very much doubt I could even speak at 1 Ray, I never even knew swear words until I was about 5, but knew I shouldn't use them.

I've got young nieces who are exposed through media etc to swear words but they don't swear, I don't see the problem if you bring them up correctly.

I agree with you about apologetic commentators, I don't think we need it, and if golfers were mic'd up, I think they'd tailor their language a bit, couldn't care less about footballers, people like Rooney have the brain of a Toxteth 5 year old deadbeat who probably taught his parents new words at that age.

I think you do children a dis-service when you suggest they are impressionable, yes they are, but they can be taught what is right or wrong or what can be said and what cannot, and if you don't believe that, think back to the respect you had when you were that age. Did you call your mum a c-word at 5? No

Completely agree. The Grammys wasn't too bad in that respect but some of the other ones this year (Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild) were cringeworthy and infantile to say the least. STFU please.

Does anyone genuinely have interest in Award ceremonies? I couldn't give a toss about them. Self congratulatory toss. It's pretty meaningless stuff and I'm sure Mac and Monty would be up in arms about the elderly, white, men who make up the Academy.

It's not her size, it's her absolute lack of manners and empathy. She moaned like Frak about having to pay tax (and no doubt she payed a massive chunk) without acknowledging in any way the fact that she is a product of the Brit academy - a tax funded stage school for luvvies.

Haha.

I don't actually understand why anybody would watch these awards ceremonies. Fair enough if you're in the industry it's a good event to attend as a celebration of success and networking with your peers. But why watch on TV? What is entertaining about them? Walk up on stage, shake hands, say thank you, mumble a short speech, maybe go on a bit and go off topic and get ushered off stage... next award, repeat ad infinitum. There seem to be loads these days, they are breeding and multiplying.

That really is quite surprising. I don't know of any situation where my friends or family members have told another that they were fat.

Would you mind expanding on an example of a time you have done this and how the conversation unfolded?

Secondly, did your conversation result in the person you were speaking to changing their lifestyle to try and loose weight?

Mac, I'm a little more subtle than that.

I've mentioned that they could do with losing a bit of weight in order to improve their golf fitness and improve their diet. Didn't make a blind bit of difference though, because the person is idle and lazy like the majority of overweight people.

By the way Mac, I don't know if you have to prepare any documentation or reports for whatever it is you do for a job, but if you do it must come back with a red pen through a lot of it.
