I don’t know who came up with this idea, but it is ridiculous.
This morning, BBC and Sky teamed up in a deal to both show F1 with Sky getting all the races and the BBC getting only 10.
I am really struggling here to put this in words. Say I want to keep watching F1 on the Beeb, I will now have to buy Sky just to watch 10 races that the BBC aren’t showing! I would have much preferred Sky having every race and then I know what I’ll be getting.
And just what will we be getting with Sky?
If you look at their football coverage, it seems we will get the following:
- SUPER DUPER FORD SUPER WANKY SUNDAY FORMULA ONE
- CRAP COMMENTATORS
- STUDIO ANALYSIS
- POINTLESS SLOW MOTION FOOTAGE
- RUBBISH ANALYSIS
- BRITISH IMPARTIALITY (ahem)
I would rather they gave the bloody thing back to ITV. I would rather James Allen was back commentating on his own. I would rather he was commentating while wanking himself into oblivion as he shouts over and over “Lewis Hamilton, Lewis Hamilton, OOOOOHHH.”.
I am not happy.
Oh and there’s a race this weekend. Meh.
