    It's a loss for the Queensland Cup really.

    Hopefully Fox Sports will use their own commentators for NZ games.

    Have not seen a figure published here in NZ. Think it's commercially sensitive due to both sides wanting "x" amount (and both being very vocal about this is process) but only one side getting what they want. Someone's got egg on their face. Now for what I'm really here for - a bleat about the size of the friggin on-screen Sky broadcast scoreboard. It is beyond a joke, by far too intrusive - no one needs the full names of the teams on the scoreboard for crying out loud. Thank gawd for radio.

    I know it's not the done thing but how would a small top corner scoreboard like Sky UK go?

    Just an example.

    Yes - and their Super League commentary on-screen scoreboard is almost as unobtrusive. Brilliant stuff. Love to know why they need to be so prominent - imagine its a commercial thing because it serves no useful purpose to the average punter including blind-as-bat followers like myself who can still easily see (or make-out) the smaller scoreboards.

    I was only thinking the same thing last night and opened this thread to ask the same thing. Where are these mysterious 2 hours of nightly footy content?

    it was rumored that before Williams took over that Gallop, Murdoch and Hartigan had been working on a deal that would have seen all games live on Fox as well as Ten getting FTA rights

    something like that

    it also came out after the rights were done that Fox pretty much refused to negotiate with Ten which didn't help their bid

    Lachlan's revenge perhaps
