    Default Sky just love us

    Not sure for everyone the feeling is mutual though!

    http://www.nottinghamforest.co.uk/ne...s-2735086.aspx

    Three fixtures, including boxing day, have been changed for sky television coverage.

    Lol, 10 before the year has ended

    Brighton
    QPR
    Boro
    Hudds
    Bristol
    Derby
    Wolves
    Leeds
    Cardiff


    Oh that's only 9. Have I missed one? Either way that is a bit ridiculous. Makes Christmas better though as I wouldn't have made any of them anyway!

    So, Cardiff, the home team, get an extra day rest over the already-busy holiday schedule.

    At least public transport will be working properly for the Leeds game. That always put me off Boxing Day games before (if i didn't have a lift organised).

    Yeah just to confirm only two are on TV, one just has to change due to the other two.

    Sky love to fuck us around, I actually think they have some impact on how our season turns out every year with the amount of our matches they reschedule, weird/crap times we play. We never have any real routine which messes things up

    Is this summat to do with Sky losing a certain amount of Prem coverage so turning to the Champ instead?

    Never had Sky so no idea how it all works.

    Did you buy advanced tickets or a return with seat reservations?

    You can still do it, Just go and spend a few hours doing something else , Think outside the box.

    That's the point - Boxing Day football means you don't have to spend the day with annoying relatives!

    Thanks a fucking bunch Sky. You cnuts.

    Sky are have lost all their European football coverage, and I mean all, to BT Sport. They've also lost a sizeable chunk of the Premier league coverage as you say. BT are now the main players when it comes to televised football, meaning SKY are having to set their sights much lower.

    Expected all this, it happened to the Prem clubs previously.

    Good for some but not for others. Won't help our falling gates either but no one seems to be concerned about the negatives at the club. They'll likely make double the money from it than what they lose on the gate anyway. Fuck the fans that go.

    Booked Imagine Dragons tickets that now clash with Derby at home.

    Booked tickets for Reverend and the Makers that now clash with Wolves away.

    Booked the 26th off work and swapped it for the 27th December so I could go to the Leeds game.

    I'm pretty fucked off, to be honest.
