Wimbledon bans selfie sticks

Thank god, common sense has reigned supreme at last. The most traditional of sporting events Wimbledon, has the most stupid of modern day devices, the selfie stick.

Selfie stick users are an absolute embuggerance on everyone around them as they wield their narcissistic wands around here there and everywhere. Having them at sporting events is even more of a pain in the ass.

These legends didn't need a selfie stick. Real men.

Wimbledon organisers have officially stated “”In common with many other major sports and entertainment events and cultural attractions, the championships will not allow selfie sticks into the grounds.” The selfie stick has been banned because of its nuisance value. We agree.

Thankfully the banning of selfie sticks is a growing trend and hopefully soon they will go the way of the dodo bird, but we doubt it.
