Default Sky's attitude: **** boxing fans clearly!

Why am I watching a bunch of pricks running about with a trophy- how many ppv sales do chelsea generate.

Got work in the morning and I'm watching this shit.

Tbf, they pay ****ing mega money to show the CL and that's what the majority of the subscribers want to see.

That said, they should just move the Price fight to a difference channel.

The thing that pisses me off is that it was originally set for 10:30, then delayed until 11:00, and now 11:15; it's the boxers I feel sorry for.

I'm pretty sure Price and ***ton will be up when the show starts; have been waiting around, keeping warm etc? How much bloody energy has been used up with this delay?

Should have just put it on a different channel and not had the main events clash.

I can understand. A British team winning the champions league on their opponents home turf on penalties? David Price Vs Sam ***ton?

No-brainer for Sky. Sadly. My 11 year old nephew has fallen asleep, shame, he was looking forward to the boxing as well.

I'm stayin' up for Barnett-Cormier tonight so I'm not fussed, knackered as I am.

****ing shoddy service by Sky. Go figure though, sticking to a schedule always has been beyond their incompetent brains. Get the fight on! The fighters are ready!!
