"all papers making a fuss" Really? The Daily Mail , yes, obviously, but which others?

There is this in the Guardian:
 
The BBC was caught out by Andy Murray's swearing during his five-set quarter-final clash with Fernando Verdasco on Wednesday. Having lost the second set, he apparently exclaimed: "******* ******, what are you doing?" Commentator Andrew Castle spluttered: "I do apologise for the language of course, but you can understand the frustration Andy Murray feels at this point. He really is torturing himself." The Daily Mail ran a page on Murray's "volley of obscenities" on Thursday, reporting that viewers "reacted with anger" over the incident. It said one Twitter user, Poorya Mortavaz, wrote: "If a footballer swore as much as Murray people would be up in arms. But apparently it's OK in tennis? DoubleStandards #wimbledon." But where are the angry viewers? When contacted by Monkey, the BBC said that just 10 viewers had complained – hardly a storm of Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand proportions. Perhaps the Mail might try to find a new racket the next time it tries to serve up a controversy.

10 complaints. 10 million viewers. End of story.

What do they mean if?  You don't need to be a talented lip reader to know that many footballers do indeed swear on tv, it's just that they don't have a microphone sat right next to them! Rolling Eyes

Andy must learn to swear in Spanish, like Ferrer or French like Simon.

I hate how 10 random people's opinions is enough for the Daily Mail to make a news story.

And I'm sure that a lot more people will complain after reading the article, whether they heard the swearing or not. The Russell Brand incident had 2 complaints at the time which lead to 40,000 after the Mail's article.

Andy as far as i recall mostly swears at himself, i have never seen him swear at an umpire or another player something that people seem to ignore, especially people like Castle, I wonder what they think about Federer who swears directly at an opponent, or tells the umpire that he "doesn't give a sh!t"
