We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Innocently enjoying a game of football on a Tuesday night when in the blink of an eye you find yourself watching Babestation with your pants around your ankles.
OK, maybe not the last bit. Or the first bit. But it did happen, funnily enough, last evening as fans flocked to watch Bristol Rovers take on Crawley Town in the Carabao Cup.
The Pirates managed to bag a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Kyle Bennett and Ollie Clarke, but it probably wasn’t the highlight of their supporters’ night.
Bristol Rovers are now launching an investigation after the X-rated TV favourite among Britain’s perhaps-loneliest geezers was screened in the supporters’ bar at half-time.
Rovers chairman Steve Hamer has described the incident as ‘not acceptable’ after a randy fan used the universal remote to change the channel from Sky Sports to Babestation.
Unbeknownst to him, younger fans in the newly-furbished clubhouse were being treated to some salacious half-time entertainment against their own will.
someone got hold of the tv remote for @Official_BRFC’s big screen in the bar and switched it from sky sports news to babestation

We have had a major refit in the clubhouse and our bars this summer and we’ve got 14-15 new TVs all in place and I suspect there was an area of vulnerability there and somebody has hacked into it.
What was seen was pretty moderate and we will talk to our TV engineers and media teams to find out what happened.
Not everyone was as bothered as Hamer, mind you. One fan spoke of the ‘massive cheer’ that went up after the channel-switch.

Dave from Portburty said, as per Bristol Live:
To be honest the Flake advert was more racy than what we saw last night.
It was quite amusing really. The first time we thought it was just an advert but then the football came back on and then whoever had a remote control put it back on again and there was a massive cheer.
The club said in a statement:
The club believes that someone that was attending in the bar was using a universal remote device to affect the TV output.
The matter will be fully investigated, however the club believes that they have photographic evidence of the individual concerned and they will be dealt with appropriately.
Could’ve been a lot worse than Babestation if you ask me.
Here are just a few off the top of my head:
THE HALF-TIME HIGHLIGHTS OF LEEDS UNITED VS BOLTON JUST AS PUNDITS ARE RECAPPING BAMFORD’S OPENING GOAL
Scantily-clad women before young Bristol Rovers fans may be bad, but it wouldn’t be half as damaging as seeing the mighty Leeds dinking one past Bolton at Elland Road last night.
THE OLD 3D PIPES SCREENSAVER YOU USED TO GET ON MICROSOFT COMPUTERS IN THE 90s
‘Now this is a throwback,’ Dave from Portburty says. ‘Takes me right back!’
‘What the f***ing hell happened to Sky Sports?’ someone else asks.
‘I don’t believe it!’ one person shouts.
‘There’s a bloody time and place!’ another says.
‘Great film, has to be said, but yeah get this off,’ a third adds.
MISCELLANEOUS TED TALKS
‘If I fancied a lecture, I would’ve stayed at home with my wife!’ everyone yells.
GOODFELLAS, BUT STARTING FROM THE SCENE WHERE JOE PESCI BUSTS RAY LIOTTA’S BALLS FOR BANTER
‘Wow, this is Goodfellas innit? Great film. Great scene, too! Danny DeVito’s finest hour if you ask me. ‘Funny how?’ Love it! This is perfect cinema,’ one man beams.
‘Yeah leave this on to be fair,’ another says.
