Utakmica Hearts – Široki Brijeg bila je prenosena preko BBC 1 Scotland. Tijekom utakmice se samo čulo oslavljavanje igraca Širokog kao "Bosnians". To je naljutilo jednog našeg forumaša pa je odmah poslao prosvjedni email BBC-u kao što je na Poskoku već i pisano….
………..Dear Mr xxxx
Thank you for your e-mail of 27 July. I apologise for the subsequent delay in our reply. We know our correspondents appreciate a quick response, and it is a matter of regret to us that you have had to wait for so long on this occasion.
I understand you feel that the commentators of the Hearts v Siroki Brijeg Champions League qualifier were wrong to refer to the Siroki Brijeg team as Bosnians.
I am sorry for any offence caused and would like to assure you this was not intended. As I am sure you will appreciate Bosnia-Herzegowina is quite a lot to say in the heat of a live commentary siutation, and so it was shortened to Bosnian. By doing this we are not trying to demean the country nor its people.
However, please be assured your comments have been registered on our daily audience log, an internal document available to everyone involved in BBC Sport as well as senior management. The BBC always welcomes all feedback, as it helps us to make decisions about future programmes or policies.
Thank you again for your e-mail.
