Sport on TV: pick of the day.

Byline: Ian Coyne

Confederations Cup

Channel 5, 9am

`WHO are the shadowy lords of the Confederation, responsible for setting up a tournament like this?', I found myself wondering yesterday, as my cash on Cameroon to beat Brazil went to the wall, writes Ian Coyne.

At first I thought it must be an international bookmakers' cartel, intent on satisfying my desire to lose money on football on every continent, but later I became more philosophical and developed an alternative theory.

The Confederation refers to a body promoting the interests of those who work late shifts and whose partners leave for work before them, only for their telly viewing to be spoiled by the domination of Trisha and Kilroy over sport on morning TV.

If you are familiar with this scenario and are frequently forced out of your slothful state and into constructive action, the movement's ideals should strike a chord.

I urge you to watch today's France versus Australia game, as without our solidarity, the Confederation is doomed to fail.
