Wouldn't Surprise me even Div 3 Rangers home games some are shown on Sky or ESPN.

I've said before I think ESPN should think about gaining some SFL football (highlights, maybe a 1st division live game a week and now Rangers games maybe). Especially as the EPL rights come to an end at the end of the season.


well theres one thing rangers can do and celtic cant , play a match in england this season , against berwick. :D


Which is an advantage in some ways as I live 25 mins from Berwick!

Quick question for SSReporters, im hearing that ESPN America are on the verge of losing the Prem rights to Fox who have offerd alot more money than ESPN.
If true this would surley mean a massive shake up in your coverage and a huge loss to espn following on from their loss in uk coverage.
My guy over the atlantic also mentiond that a final decision would be made within a week or so.

ESPN America technically only sublicense the rights from FOX at the moment. Before, FOX has won the Premier League rights and sublicense the Saturday Noon kickoff and the Monday Night Football to ESPN. It may happen again where FOX and ESPN join forces to win the rights. It will be interesting to see if BeIn Sport (aka Al-Jazeera) will bid for Premier League.

BeIn Sports will probably make a bid. The problem now is getting it on cable systems. They've snapped up La Liga and Serie A.

FOX seems to have an unlimited amount of money at the moment so hopefully ESPN isn't in danger of losing any rights. As you said, it's sublicensed at the moment.

If ESPN somehow lose their sublicense from next year onwards that would obliterate almost their entire soccer coverage after the 2014 World Cup. They do have Euro 2016 but not much else.

On the subject of ESPN, Derek Rae will be doing some Liverpool games in the USA for preseason. Don't think Ian Darke will do any preseason matches, I'm afraid. He certainly hasn't implied it.

On another note, what becomes of Alan Smith at Sky? Shut out of the CL Final and Niall Quinn got both big Man City matches to end the season.

If Quinn is getting more Sky work and Neville continues to be groomed as a major part of their commentary team, Smith is more or less stuck in the #2 or #3 position, much like his frequent comm partner Rob Hawthorne.

I know it's hardly the end of the world, but should we have a separate thread for the whole of the 2012 Olympics under "other broadcasting", including the football tournament, or keep the soccer separate?

Anyway, the Olympic football kicks off two days before the opening ceremony on Wednesday 25th. The first game is the women's international between GB and New Zealand, and it'll be on BBC 1 with Gabby Logan presenting, commentators Guy Mowbray and Lucy Ward (programme start 15.30). The second game, Brazil v Cameroon, is on BBC 3 but only 2nd half live from 19.00 (Jake Humphrey, JP and Jo Potter).

Presumably the first half will be on the red button on Sky but freeview 301 won't have it as they are showing USA-France and Sweden-South Africa.

For the olympics there is a heck of a lot of games on, in the football, I think in Day 2 for example there is 5 or 6 matches on across the UK, will the BBC have commentaries at all of them or will we have some 'world feeds'?

Barry Davies to make a come back in football as a 'world feeder' anyone?

We can have an Olympic commentators thread, and any soccer commentaries will be fished out and recorded for one of the front page posts so we have everything under one roof.

No chance - if only because there is hockey every day from 8.30 on the the 1st Sunday to the final which is at 20.00 on the last Saturday. There are six matches a day in the league section and four in the knockout, so Barry is going to be kept very busy for somebody who will be 75 in October!

He will, however, be doing the opening and closing ceremonies for the world feed from the Olympic Broadcasting Service.

Barry has also hinted that he might retire at the end of the games
