Sadly I do mate, the bank is giving me no end of grief and I had a company go bust on me owing me about 14 grand just after Christmas, they was a limited company so there was **** all I could really do, if I was to say the recession hasn't hit me I'd be a bare faced liar.

Fair enough.

I was on here shouting about cancelling my Boxnation when the Burns fiasco kicked off. Didnt do it and they ended up putting on a great coupla months.

You'd have streamed it though.

Well I don't live in England so I can't get BoxNation. Most of the big fights are avalible on US tv and if there not I stream them.

I got rid of BoxNation long before I left the country though. I just wasn't watching it. But it never got taken of my Sky box so I had it for free for 4 months. I rang BoxNation and told them as I was paranoid they would charge me and the muppet on the phone just said "Oh ok we will turn it off" and they didn't.

In my opinion watching an illegal stream is more morally justifiable than giving money to Frank.

The thread could get very dark listing things more morally justifiable than giving money to him.

Pains me to do it but i cant really moan after the last 8 weeks.

Do you have split personality? Is that why you have 10 different logins that you post from?

I think Sky Sports subscribers have a right to feel aggrieved as these are the kind of cards people pay the subscription for.

The tickets you'd get for 200 on those sites are in the nosebleeds. It wouldn't be worth going, especially for that kind of money. I was lucky enough to get an 80 ticket after camping the 02 site for 2 hours. Besides, all those tickets are from touts, **** them.

Can't believe people are whinging about 15 for a guaranteed good fight that will probably go the full 12. Both fighters deserve the money, it may well be the last fight for either or even both of them.
