I dont really care because I dont have Sky
I dont understand why its a problem they dont have snooker
They still have some tournaments and I like them. their snooker coverage is always good the camera angle to the table is always good, and they always show all the matches, they show one match after other, not like the German masters for example when there is 5 match at the same time with only 1 televised.. so dont call these donkey doo
I think it will change with Barry Hearn, Sky shows many matchroom events, and the PDC tournaments
Bloody hell to Start with it was 2010 that Nathan Robertson won the World Championship and ohhhhh yes his name is Neil not Nathan you bunch of bucking hammers

It's even evident on their website that snooker is not that important to them, as this from a few weeks ago will testify http://www1.skysports.com/snooker/news/ ... ith-a-bang
Reigning world champion Nathan Robertson?

They don't expect huge audience figures. They took on cycling when it wasn't at all fashionable and did a grand job. They did the same with Serie A back in the 90s, and I think they had a crack at cricket. Their coverage of racing is very good I believe. They could buy the live feed from broadcasters at foreign tournaments, and have a couple of commentators in a studio; pretty cheap tv. The same could be done on ITV 3/4. Sky is elitist; we don't need that in snooker, we need to broaden its appeal to the mass public.
