Good to see Eurosport hasn't changed, well it has since the days when I was able to watch all the good tennis events, but they might replay it again at another point.

Shame on you Babsi! Idiots is way too mild a superlative- I can think of many others more suitable but I would probably get banned if I wrote them.

Can't have another poster who makes sense and has logical points getting banned that would be too much.

I am lucky I can get to see the replay later tonight, but for you aphex jävla Eurosport.

Helt klart om Eurosport, aldri glemme eg den glansedager i 80-tallet når Eurosport var kjempebra, de overførte en stor del av bra ATP-turneriner. No, det blir verre og verre.

good that I was one of the lucky ones who didn't have to rely on Eurosport because I could continue watching the match on Swiss TV after the match was resumed :angel: :yeah:

Ja, tennis verkar ha låg prioritet nuförtiden. Men egentligen var det ATP som förstörde när de sålde TV rättigheterna till Schweizarna/ Tyskarna (?). Masters/ Super 9 turnerimgarna blev för dyra så Eurosport valde att satsa på WTA istället. Vilket inte ursäktar TMC fiaskot, även om vädret försört.

4.00 PM CET on Eurosport? How do we know they are not pulling our chains again?

Oh well - I'll miss that too. Won't be home from work in time to watch it :sad:

4pm? How did you find out, cause the website and teletext are still saying there's gonna be snooker at that time? Guess I'll just have to program the vcr again (for the third time for one match!!)

When you go to EUROSPORT.de - the headline story is Roger,if you click at it,there is an article and at the end it says that they are going to show the match at 16 hour(4pm) no time zone mentioned,but in gereneral they go by CET time.
At the EUROSPORT.com site there is an simelar artcile,but no mentioning of a show time :(

I was watching eurosport around 10 a.m cet, and a popup appeared on the screen telling it was 16.30, and usually those are acurate. (I hope)

Eurosport Teletext schedule says 16.30 CET as well. But don't count on it, since it's SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKER live before.

Snooker is certainly in the Guiness book of records for the most boring sport ever invented! :zzz: :zzz: :zzz:


Watching snooker on Eurosport is for those who think that crossword puzzles are some sort of sport :tape: :tape: :tape:

I have no clue who´s running Eurosport,but I think I can do the job as lousy for half the money!

The german Eurosport tv guide said the final will be aired at 6:25pm,that was when it ended - luckily I was watching all the time - and then they showed only 60% of the match -nice job!

Snooker is great entertainment and at least better than watching Federer.

AAARRRGGHHHH!!!!! I had to leave the house so I recorded the replay (which only started at 16:50 instead of 16:30 anyways :rolleyes: ) only to discover when I got back home that after about 10 minutes of play there must have been something crocked with the transmission as the rest of the cassette was only static!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Somebody up there clearly did not want me to see this final :mad: :mad: :mad:

I love snooker as well. And the match they showed live before tennis was real classic, so I didn't have a slightest problem, that they started tennis a bit later! ;)
