Well done Ronnie O’ Sullivan who won Ladbrookes Snooker Players Championship trophy last night. That is now five trophy’s this season he has won, and with two major championships left of the season, (China Open, and The World Championships), he may even obtain one or two more.
Imho we at least have seventeen days of snooker on TV worth watching from the middle of April to the May Bank holiday weekend. It’s much better watching this, than the normal c**p they put on TV these days, thank goodness for the DVD collection that will be used after the snooker world championship finishes.
We have to say thank you to Barry Hearn who has at least kept snooker on normal TV rather than giving it away to pay per view companies.
It did occur to me to ask the good people on this forum what sport they like watching on TV. I have to say I am not into Football, Cricket, Tennis, Olympics or Boxing (is it a sport?), but as you can see I like Snooker and Golf, but with Sky now having the rights to show golf on TV, then those of us that do not wish to give Mr Murdoch any money to watch sport on TV, will have to miss the golf, or we will have to invest in Now TV (which means we will have to give Mr Murdoch some money) and get a weeks sport pass to watch the British golf Open.
I know this is another contentious issue but is it not annoying that an awful lot of sport has gone over to Sky, so that the sport watcher from home has to pay to watch their favorite sport, rather than the BBC keeping the sport on normal TV for those that cannot afford to pay or want to pay to watch sport.
I wonder what others on the forum think?
Once again well done Ronnie.
