Just watching The Master's on Sky Sports 1HD, great coverage and yes, they too have a Skypad, so it seem's that Skypad is generic across all sports. Great for showing Tigers bad swing i might add!

Murdoch may not give a toss about sport and only care about power, but i know which coverage, as a Golf lover, i'd rather watch.

Without them I would hardly get to see any rugby either. Now there are at least two games a weekend (eight this weekend!) and a weekly magazine programme. Although the coverage has suffered recently with the loss of Simon!

Talking of repeats...

For F1, Indycar and NASCAR highlights in lovely HD? If that isn't enough for you, and eveyone is different, then there is no need to.

I'm not sure if you mean this, but there is MotorsTV and Eurosport. MotorsTV is othe sky platform (and others) and the Frenchie quality drives me insane. They spent the first half an hour trying to get the ratio right in the ALMS coverage. Even when sorted it was only YouTube quality.

3 hours of pre-action chit-chat would drive me off the wall whatever the sport. I like tuning 15/30 minutes before the action. If there is a point I'm confused about, I take the pleasure of researching it either via a trade magazine, specialist book or these days on the internet. An overdose of punditry bugs me about modern sport, they just wind up repeating the obvious.

Because the motorracing i primarily watch is on Sky ?

As it happens, i paid for Sky anyway, before i got F1 thrown in for the same price, but, believe it or not, there's a lot more on Sky than just F1.

We have Jonathan Legard, but we need Stephen Green in his swimming trunks.

Obviously not the Beeb's fault, but that Boat Race was farcical.

Do you think Stephen would like to be in Legard's swimming trunks?
