Does that mean games will be on the normal platforms, or just not available to view unless already a televised match?

I read that they were probably going to go back to just showing every game again.

Pay per view scrapped

Surprised. Thought they’d just drop the price.

Saw it on the news earlier and they weren't very clear. I think they said it was to be scrapped, but then they elaborated on the headline by saying the "£15 fee had been dropped".  Which could mean the same thing, but it's a weird way of saying it.

been reported viewing figures have been fairly abysmal for them and I highly doubt Sky/BT were in the slightest bit pleased about the whole thing considering the negative pr they've been getting for something that isn't even their idea. Combine that with lockdown 2 in England and it just makes them look very bad to be trying to fleece more money out of people when theres rather a lot of people going back onto furlough and may lose their job permanently

Have to assume they make more on increased ad revenue than they do on dereased revenue topped up by PPV payments.

well no, the broadcasters would make more with the ad revenue but that doesn't go to the clubs. The premier league cooked this up as they were unhappy about "giving away" the usually untelevised games to sky/bt/amazon.

Watched half of it before. It's really mundane unless you're a calcio nut or big fan of him as a player.

Like I'm thoroughly enjoying it but he's just not that interesting a character really.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

Aye I enjoyed it but it was more of a highlight reel.

Could have done with more on scudetto season and WC and less whinging about spaletti not playing him when he was 40.

Didn't realise Roma fans nearly cost them the title with a pitch invasion like  :lol:
