Those dickheads at Channel 9 have now turned around and said.
They had the chance originally to televise the 2005 Ashes Tour, but said that they couldn’t make a decision until 12 months out from the tour.
So, Fox Sports eagerly snapped it up, knowing it would be a good money-spinner for them having the exclusive rights to televise them.
Now the free-to-airs are claiming that Fox Sports were offered it first.
Ok, I have Fox so I don’t really care who shows the games, as long as I get to see them. A bit selfish, I know. It does suck that no free-to-air will show them (although ABC are still trying), but hopefully it will be a kick-arse series and then they will wake up to themselves.
England are looking as strong as the have for 10 years, so I think it may be fairly close.
I mean, 4-1 is closer than 5-0 😉
