Greedy bastards after more money

What a surprise. Sports agencies and companies that are worth a mint are crying and blowing bubbles into their milk as some people are getting to watch the overpaid sports stars for free, courtesy of Satan’s own child the internet.Boo fucking hoo.Now, I’ve not used the web to watch anything, simply because I’ve never been anywhere with a decent enough connection. If I were at home, I’d go watch a match live or at the pub. I’m currently in Singapore and have spent some time around Oz, NZ and SE Asia. What matches are shown is dependant on the TV stations choosing them. Newcastle are rarely one of those choices now, simply because we’re shit and not entertaining.At home, I’d listen to the game on the radio if it was on. No such luck any more. 5-Live rarely covered our games anyway, and Century choose to cover Boro or play music on the internet when we’re on (you can only get NUFC matches if you’re within broadcast distance of their north transmitter). While I’m abroad, I’m fucked due to the rules governing the UK radio companies and the limitations on their internet transmission of sporting events.If I ever turn to “illegal” broadcasts it’s because I can’t keep up with the games by any other means, purely down to the clampdown by the governing bodies. Look, let’s face it – there’s a gazillion dollars in football these days. There has been for years. It’s not exactly losing money because a few people aren’t going to watch live games. They’re not going to live games for two reasons: a) in our case, we’re shit and b) it’s too fucking expensive. You’re looking at £100 for ticket, transport, lunch and a couple of beers. Ramp that skywards if you’re taking the kids.So stop wasting time and money trying to close down internet sites. They’ll always be one step ahead and at least they’re letting people follow the sports they pump their money and hopes into. Which is better than can be said for the greedy cunts running the sports bodies these days. Sport is for fans, not the money-grabbing crotch-monkeys who’re walking around with my fucking money in their sweat-stained pockets.
