Complaint Response CAS-1545356-F4WBL8 Thanks for contacting us regarding our ‘Euro 2012’ coverage. We understand you felt the commentators and presenters were biased against Mario Balotelli throughout our coverage. We appreciate in your view, they made a series of snide and offensive remarks which were unnecessary. Mario Balotelli has been a controversial figure throughout his career in both Italy and England. In common with various media and press in both countries, our pundits have acknowledged both his youth and undoubted footballing talent, but have had to comment from time to time on various disciplinary issues both on and off the pitch, and his repeated raw displays of dissent and frustration. Jose Mourinho described him as "unmanageable" and both his current club and international managers - Mancini and Prandelli - have expressed concerns that his talent could go to waste unless he changes his ways. Our team's comments, while sometimes reflecting those concerns, have across the programme been balanced and fair. Please be assured, we do appreciate your strength of feeling on this. Therefore your complaint has been registered on our audience log. This is a daily report of audience feedback that's made available to many BBC staff, including members of the BBC Sport team, channel controllers and other senior managers. The audience logs are seen as important documents that can help shape decisions about future programming and content. Thanks again for taking the time to contact us. Kind Regards BBC Complaints meh... It seems lots of City fans complained about the comments regarding Mario in particular and they decided to lump me in with those. A good way to maintain "balance" I suppose.
