Sky in control?

Sky in control?

Alex Ferguson has stated that he believes that whilst TV isn't god it is certainly king as far as football is concerned.

The fact is that the amount of money in the premier league is mainly down to the fact that Sky has exclusive rights to the games shown on TV.

They see the fixture list and then choose their games.

The big ones go first and then the smaller clubs, having to have their share of games are chosen.

No thought is given to the supporters that go in week in week out. If sky want it they get it.

The reality is the game has changed beyond all recognition over the last 30 years.

Are Sky in control, or do we still have our voice?

I have never and will never justify a full years skysports subscription for 2 measely Wolves games a year... That cost/per/match makes it cheaper to actually fly to Europe where they show MOST IF NOT ALL Wolves games, watch the game and have a mini holiday to boot. Fergeddit !! Until this giant stops strangling the life out of every fan,

Live streaming is the way to go. None of the greedy bar stewards involved need get a penny,that way.

The link I had was relatively good...but I pay £20 a year for it. Didn't get round to it 'til the other week. Have watched half of SpursvLiverpool and our match at Anfield.Every match is available, with at least 6 links (of varying quality) to choose from. The sub is payed to Football Streams tv and they house all the links from europe and beyond.I've watched sky's and ESPN(US) coverage. It's quite satisfying to know I get the coverage without sub'ing to them. I take it Sky Sports is more than £20 a year?!
