Half-hour delay on Saturday's FA Cup match


Recommended Posts

Sure, rah rah hooray to Sportsnet for showing FA Cup matches, but grrr to them for showing the first match on Saturday (Arsenal v Middlesbrough (again)) on a 30-minute delay. Presumably this is because there is no SoccerCentral scheduled for Saturday, and they don't want a half-hour void to fill in between the matches.

Their 5-10 minute normal delay is annoying enough on Saturday mornings. That way you can't easily follow results of other matches online without being tipped off as to when goals are about to happen in the game you are watching.

Why do they insist on doing this?? Just bite the bullet and start the broadcast a few minutes earlier, or cut out the intro blabber!
