BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
But what about the Men's teams?
BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
I'm sure RF is right
BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
JA why should a match be broadcast just because it involves women? If it is worthy of broadcasting, broadcast it, if it isn't - don't be sexist - ignore it. The only criterion of "worth" is quality of bridge - not gender of participants

A bidding poll with a twist
If Henry's memory is accurate then this is a HORRIBLE story, imho. To me this is gaining an Ave+ by NOT playing bridge - sorry but to me (in the vulgar tongue) "this sux" and inflicting an Ave- on opps who were being ethical - they didn't HAVE to tell ...
