Excellent news. :-D:-D:-D:-D
Not for Quinny
The money bubble may just be about to burst imo.
IHA to turn purple in 5.... 4.... 3.... 2....
Clubs will have to drop ticket prices.
This thread is just about to take an unfortunate turn about attendances......
It probably wont affect lower league clubs too much tbh, they'll just end up moving all the PL games to Sundays and keeping lower league games on a Saturday.
Quinny should get it at The SoL for away games, get the sports bar packed
Don't see all the hassle myself.
People who go to the match go because they want to be there, not because it's not on in the pub.
People who go to the pub to watch it go because they want to watch it in the pub and don't want to go to the stadium. If it wasn't on in the pub they 99% of the time wouldn't go over anyways.
BTW, how much are these boxes? I might look into getting one.
Sky is a fucking rip off.
According to the other thread and a post by MBH (I think) this could be good news for Sky as the PL will be forced to negotiate Europe wide rights in 2013 and they are best placed to grab monopoly rights across the EU
Well that it crowds will dwindle as now the people who didnt want to take the chance can be 20k crowds next year.
in theory it could be equvelant for Sky as it was with the Bosman ruling...
what about the pubs who take a feed from outside the EU.. not all of them get the football from CANAL+ or wherever..
some of the dodgy internet feeds I get are from the US, Australia, far east. those are still in effect illegal
Great news for the game in the long run. It should go some way to breaking up Sky's financial monopoly over the game.
its about time full TV season tickets were available for home and away for all clubs, would bring in billions for the clubs and sky
If you follow this through to it's logical conclusion Sky may well flog each clubs rights seperately so you could buy a tv season ticket for your club very tempting me thinks. That would make it more difficult to get people to go to matches so ticket prices would drop.
The trouble is that too many fans want it both ways - top signings to push their team upwards, and cheap viewing whether at the pub or stadium.
There has to be a salary cap of some sort, it's the only root solution.
