This is a big game in Europe, but most of troops who were watching it on German TV during the Olympics called it a game for “wimps” or worse.

Do you want to know why some of the military dislikes the press?
This happened outside of Goose Green during the Falkland War:
Starting early May 27 and through May 28 2 Para approached and attacked Darwin and Goose Green which was held by the Argentine 12th Inf Regt. After a tough struggle which lasted all night and into the next day; seventeen British and 200 Argentine soldiers were killed and 1400 Argentinian troops were taken prisoner. Due to a gaffe by the BBC the invasion of Goose Green was announced on the BBC World Service before it actually happened. It was during this attack that Lt Col H Jones, the CO of 2 Para was killed. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. See also Battle of Goose Green.
More reaction to the BBC actions are here.
