of course i am, but i dont particularly look out for the CCC, league 1 and league 2 scores and by the time the highlights are on, i have forgotten what most of the lower league scores were, as most people probably do. I would rather watch the highlights not being told the fucking scores as they go along, since i generally either havent seen, or dont remember, every single score on a saturday afternoon
Equally with fa cup highlights, sometimes people deliberately avoid finding out the scores so they can watch the highlights later without knowing the score, then some bint comes on and says "lincoln put up a good fight before crashing out in this one", fucking annoying as fuck. The scores might be broadcast earlier, but that doesnt mean they should assume everyone knows the scores- if that was okay, why not just have linekar saying "first up we'll show you highlights of man uniteds win at home to spurs"- people would complain if they did that and rightly so, because regardless of scores being broadcast earlier, they dont want it mentioned in the highlight program
