SPL 2010/11: TV Times

SORRY FOLKS. THIS BLOG POST HAS BEEN UPDATED TO TELL YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ON THE STRICT INSTRUCTION OF NET RESULT ON BEHALF OF DATA CO LIMITED ON BEHALF OF THE SPL. 


TO EVEN SHOW THE FIRST WEEK OF FIXTURES WITH LINKS TO THE FULL FIXTURE LIST ON THE SPL SITE WOULD COST ME OVER £4000. THIS IS MODERN FOOTBALL:

If you've spent the last few weeks filling in your diary with your team's fixtures for next season then more fool you.

The inevitable changes have now been announced to accomadate Sky and ESPN.

Noon on a Saturday is a crap time for a football game. So is 12.15. So is noon on a Sunday. So is 12.15 on a Sunday. So is 2.15 on a Sunday.

But I will not rant. Because I was given a stress ball today and I'm squeezing it furiously while remaining calm.
