Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

The Sun have gone and made Gary Lineker the focus of their opprobrium this morning after the Match of the Day host hadthe temerity to show the slightest whiff of compassion for the people caught up in the current refugee crisis.

Earlier in the week, Lineker made the grievous error of emitting a Tweet that expressed his concern over the nature of the language and rhetoric being used to describe immigrants and refugees particularly the unaccompanied children in the 'Jungle' camp in Calais.

Rupert Murdoch’s Dream Football League

It was noted at the time of the Dream Football League fiasco, in which a journalist from The Times newspaper was hoodwinked by the odd combination of a French football website and a fantasist with a chequered past over a non-existent story about the oil-rich of Qatar creating a super league paying absurd amounts of money to the biggest club sides in the world, that it was entirely possible that this story was likely to make somebody, somewhere start stroking their chin and wondering if this wasn't something that they could make a reality.

Sky Refuses to Air BT’s Ads for its Premier League Coverage: The Daily EPL

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Despite the way that Sky has helped the Premier League become so popular, there is a lot to despise about the way the Rupert Murdoch company does business. They're incredibly self-serving. If there's a sporting event or news story that they don't either have the rights to or they didn't get the scoop, they'll often ignore it or will certainly pay far less attention to it compared to one of their own Sky Sports exclusives.

England: 20 years of riches

The Scottish Football Blog at related • 0 views
It's 20 years now since football started.

That seems to be the unspoken claim amid the marketing hype marking two decades of the English Premier League and TV revolution ushered in by Rupert Murdoch's Sky.

While the English top flight celebrates like history never existed before 1992, our own game is down in the dumps, mired in debt, penury and recrimination.

The road to redemption from Hillsborough has been a lengthy and painful for many, many people. Hundreds of people lost family members or friends on that day in April 1989, and the feeling that the establishment was closing ranks in order to cover up the truth behind what exactly happened to result in the deaths of ninety-six innocent people has been a bitter pill for those that survived or have otherwise had to live with their loss to have to swallow.

The Government’s Hillsborough Documents Must Be Made Public

What, the inevitable question that will now be repeatedly asked will say, are they trying to hide? A little over two decades has passed since the Hillsborough disaster, and still no-one has been brought to account in any meaningful day for what happened on the fifteenth of April 1989. Since then, discourse on the subject has ranged from what we all know and understand on the subject that this was a failure of crowd control, a failure of policing and basic safety to the innuendo-laden and frequently hate-driven perpetuation of a pack of lies that was spread shortly after it occurred.

Why ongoing battle over Prem TV rights could be as entertaining as the matches themselves

Rupert Murdoch must surely be wondering whether at some point this year he smashed a mirror without noticing. But as the 80 year old Australian was forced to close the News Of The World and appear before a House of Commons Select Committee examining the small matter of phone hacking, at least the tycoon could be sure of one thing: that his television empire is safe.

It's sometimes easy to laugh at Yanks. I remember watching a pulsating FA Cup tie at Stamford Bridge in 1995 when Manchester United roared into a miraculous 5-0 lead against Chelsea only to concede three goals in the last twenty minutes, leaving them desperate to hang on for the 5-3 win. As the huge crowd drew breath at the end a lone American voice was heard saying, 'Wow, that was some game!

Sure, the winner of the Coca-Cola Championship playoff will go on to receive a payoff the size of which the likes of Rupert Murdoch have not (yet)* seen, but as far as the weighing scale entertainment potential goes, we are at our sport's zenith.

The consequences if found guilty are severe - he stands to be barred for life from FIFA under corruption clauses.
