  1. Next thing they should poach from pay-tv: Wimbledon, French Open and U.S. Open tennis. The U.S. Open will not clash with the AFL season and the tournament can only be shown on ONE instead of TEN entirely.

  2. They do things like this which are good for sports fans, but then they show movies, documentaries on trees & oil, and are now cutting their Monday night football show World Football News to 30 minutes, putting it on a Tuesday and putting it late at night.

    Give with one hand and take from the other.
