You can’t disagree with my own personal feelingsI massively disagree with that, it makes a hell of a difference to me watching at 9/10pm on a Sat night or recorded for the next day. Obviously we're historically used to the very biggest fights being on at that time, and one every 3 or 4 months isn't bad and I might make an exception and stay up to watch one live, but when it's your actual bread and butter UK stuff going over there then it's absolutely ridiculous.
Watching sport delayed just doesn't compare at all to it watching live - you can't really watch with mates, you can't put an in play bet on, there's always a chance the result can get spoilt, or you have to go to great lengths to avoid it, or the broadcast cuts off like on ITV4 earlier in the year, then it can also be a bit tactical if you're on SkyQ when FF.
I'll see how it goes over the next 6-12 months or so, but if 90% of the stuff happens in the early hours for the foreseeable future, I'll massively lose interest.
I watch nearly every boxing and ufc card on the Sunday morning when I wake up....love it and have done for a long time now. Aye, always good to get a free Saturday night show when I’m not on the piss.
But I have a long memory, Christ being able to watch meldrick taylor v glen wood brown on tape delay Sunday afternoon on sky sports felt amazing.
No matter what my interest will always be there....and I’ll also have a moan from time to time.
