:D There are many threads moaning about the coverage on various channels. Lets keep one thread and post in this when we are annoyed!

Ok to start off, eurosport and bbci are going to show henman against a claycourt clown :mad: when nalbandian and gasquet will be gone :( and the atmosphere seems great in the arena too!

Great Thread :worship: I don't have a cable TV here at all, but I do at home and wanted to moan Eurosport shows only WTA matches, I haven't seen ATP match for such a looong time... and Eurosport used to play many of ATP matches and they even had a weekly magazine :shrug: Yes, they are on Eurosport 2 but it is coded here.

Also Polsat Sport + Polsat Extra stink (Polish posters would know what I mean :cool: )

Same with euro during rg, they are showing 70% wta, and its more like 80% when you exclude the brittish players!!

I think Eurosport shows roughly 50-50 between mens and womens matches. Much as I would love them to show all mens I do think it's fair. BBCi are showing good matches as well. I'm very happy with the coverage this year.

Just before the rain break, Eurosport showed Haas-Waske here in Germany. Was that exclusively for the german fans or did they also show the match in other countries?

This is the worst thing that Eurosport could have done.

WTF are they thinking? WHo the hell wants to see Hingis vs some random player?

Meanwhile, they're actually smart enough to miss the Gaudio-Ferrero match. ARe Eurosport TOTALLY INCOMPETENT?

I'm hoping they'll go to Chatrier after Hingis finishing blitzing Ondraskova - they've played 3 games while Martina has taken the first set.

ESPN has to be worse than all of them. Man... they showed Hingis. Fine, whatever. But then after the match, they've just been showing clips and promos and fluff pieces on Blake and anything they can until Nadal plays so that they don't have to show a fucking point of JC/Gaston :rolleyes:

I knew they were going to shpw Hingis over GG-JCF, so I set my alarm for 5 instead of 4am. And now I've been up for 1/2 an hour already and have yet to see one point of live tennis :( Ridiculous. It's like GG-JCF are not even playing.

Having been at Roland Garros til yesterday - this is my first chance to moan :devil: And - honestly - I cannot believe it!!! Watching Hingis and then Clijsters thrash some complete unknowns unstead of Gastón/JCF was bad enough - but then they only showed 2 games of Gastón before switching over to Nadal/Kim! I mean - honestly - we have two former French Open Champions battling it out here - that match has GOT to be closer and more interesting than the "Boy Wonder" :rolleyes: against lowly-ranked Kim! :banghead:

Whilst in Paris I happened to be staying in the same Hotel as most of the Eurosport commentators and media people - I now wish I had taken my chance to strangle them when I had the chance.

06-02-2006, 11:17 AM
Yes, I heard this a few weeks ago. Apparently it was illegal to put up an england flag! It had to be the gbr flag. Some guy got arrested for it, because its apparently offensive to non english people living in the country :lol:

Whats the latest on it then?

*Ljubica*
06-02-2006, 11:18 AM
What about the flag?
Well - in England it is not really considered acceptable to display our national flag in the same way as it is in many other countries, for fear of upsetting the "politically correct" brigade. Sadly the flag of St. George (English flag) has been adopted by the BNP (British National Party) which is a Fascist organisation, and is somewhat associated with racism/Fascism. Therefore, many people who are wanting to display the flag for the World Cup (lorry drivers/taxi drivers etc) are being banned from doing so for fear of losing their jobs, and there is now a campaign to "reclaim" our flag for ordinary people to show their allegiance instead of the bad side of things. Hope that helped :)

06-02-2006, 11:23 AM

Eurosport is just clueless. Its obvious that the ones who
are making the decisions there don't know jack about tennis and
certainly don't respect the sport. If two former RG champions are playing
each other it's no brainer to anyone that it should be on TV.

Couldn't believe Eurosport showed Nadal blasting Kim and only a few minutes every so often of Gaudio/JCF. Hated the commenatary as well - going on how Hingis was a set and a break up while gaudio and JCF had only played 3 games - and then the same in the Nadal match. All very negative. I guess it was too 'bleeding obvious' for them to work out Hingis was playing a no-name and Nadal was playing a 'lucky loser' qualifier who hadn't won a match on clay for a year.

Absolutely! That Gaudio Ferrero match from the little bits I saw of it seemed to be a great contest with awesome tennis.

But noooo, instead of that we were forced to watch poor Kevin Kim get totally mauled by the pig! :mad:

Incidentaly, here in Israel ESPN also covers RG and they showed the Nadal match in it's entirety without even occassionaly flipping over to Gaudio/JCF- so I guess that makes them even worse than ES :smash:

raeesa301
06-02-2006, 08:59 PM
You guys are lucky!!! They didn't even show BITS of Ferrero-Gaudio. They showed the full Nadal-Kim match without interruptions apart from the ad breaks!! I've always said that if I go to a GS one day I'd rather see a great contest in a match with a fantastic atmosphere than Fed or Nadal bashing some idiot to pieces in a boring match. Yet, they decided to bore us at home. Fools!

Good question. I fear that as long as 2 matches take place at the same time, they're prone to continue with the flicking shit. This year it really annoys me more than usual.

Probably because he is a twice Grand Slam Champion, a former World Number 1, a Top 10 player, and despite being arrogant (I can't stand Hewitt actually) his matches are always fun to watch for the atmosphere and controversy - you can always cheer against him :devil: I just think it's incredibly unfair that Eurosport have shown ONLY WTA so far this morning - if they had shown Justine, and then at least a set of Hewitt or Stepanek, and then switched to Clijsters it would have been more acceptable - but the way their coverage is going this might as well be a WTA tournament with no men participating at all :rolleyes: Thank goodness for Sky Interractive's US Open coverage - a choice of at least 4 courts!

Yes! Love the interactive Us Open coverage. Yeah, I would prefer to cheer against Hewitt than watch Henin easily beat Garbin. I just don't see the problem with the Kirilenko v Groenfeld game being on. They should have showed Myskina v Ivanovic this morning and gaudio v ferrero yesterday (also disappointed that they haven't shown Dulko all tournament)

I have never enjoyed watching kim, but when I went to eastbourne and attended her press conferences I realised what a nice woman she is, and she does also talk alot of sense. I guess I became a fan of her at that time :yeah: Unlike one other certain belgian poisoned dwarf.

yesterday the forth set with nalby & tursunov was heating up, they switched to federer in second set & he was winning easy
then when federer match became more interesting in the 4th
they switched to a ladies match just starting

i did see the end of federer & massu, but a replay of the fifith of nalby

i remember they switched to the ladeis when federer was facing a break point...

the woman said something like, 'obviously federer was dominanting, we are switching to more interesting match' and showed the match with sharapova... who then won the first set 6-0...

No US Open 2003 Capriati served for the match so many times I cant remember the count, and she fought back. Olympics 2004, Myskina served for the match twice I believe and Justine fought. Its not only when she is winning but also when she is losing. There is a reason why she is known as 1 of the toughest fighters out there, when she is healthy. Dont just look at what she has doen this year, when she is healthy she has taken her loses like every other player. Enough of WTA, I am out of here and hopefully I can see a tennis match on TV today :(

not sure about his predictions tho :shrug:

I thought only us Brits were unfortunate enough to hear his nonsense.

Just wait till he commentates on a Federer match. After about 3 points you can't hear him properly because he's drooled over his microphone. Then later on you can usually catch him jerking off when Federer wins :retard:

It was funny when Jimmy Connors and Andrew Castle were commentating last year. Castle usually sounds super-confident about everything he says, but as soon as Connors disagreed with him, Castle went quiet as a mouse. :devil:

What's the real reason why Eurosport won't buy the needed rights for Wimbledon? I mean c'mon, they've got the money for sure. And they show the other 3 slams live, so what's the deal?

This just leaves so many people without any coverage from Wimbledon :( Luckily they show at least some of the matches here in Finland.

Yappa

1) I think Wimbledon earns more money by selling the rights to different european channels (mostly pay tv).
2) Eurosport is showing the Tour de France

Didn't realize ESPN was blacking out coverage on the west coast during NBC's window. I love how they say things like "ESPN will be back live at 1pm EST following NBC's coverage," conveniently neglecting to mention that it won't be live for the west coast US viewers. Thanks a lot, NBC. Guess we get fucked again.

What pisses me off, is that the german pay tv Premiere is still changing courts even in the quarter finals! They could show the first two qfs live, and the other two tape delayed, but nooo....
According to their schedule, the coverage today and tomorrow is supposed to go until 8 pm CET. Yeah right. :rolleyes: The only advantage german pay tv offers, is the fact, that there arent any commercial breaks.
Today doesnt bother me much since its WTA matches, but they'll surely do the same tomorrow for mens qfs.

A guy at their viewer relations says they have
NO PLANS to show the tennis interactively this

Damn, thats bad news. One of the reasons why I took Sky earlier this year was because of their interactive service at Masters events.
Any news on next week?

I would hope that they will at least show Ljubicic vs. Almagro from the Stadium. Without doubt we will be shown Grandstand for Youzhny vs. Rusedski and stay there Henman vs. Bjorkman. Should those matches go fairly quickly (finish before Sky coverage cuts off) I hope we get some more live tennis instead of having to endure Cowan, Petchey etc. discussing:

Why Rusedski lost
Why Henman lost (or should he win why he is in prime position to win the title)
Gilbert & Murray

for the rest of their coverage.

And it's Bailey and Petchey in the studio!

The thing is though, I think they only have coverage of the Stadium and Grandstand courts. After the Ljubicic match there is Nalbandian-Sanguinetti and Berdych-Nestor.

I know what matches I'd rather watch as there will be easy wins for both Nalbandian and Berdych.

En fait, il y a un petit réseau. J'ai une "livebox" qui est relié à la prise téléphonique avec une prise USB pour l'internet sur mon ordi .
La "livebox" a aussi une prise ethernet qui elle est relié à un boitier (decodeur) près de la télé . Et ce boitier est evidemment relié à la télé, et aussi au magnétoscope/dvd

No good, I dont even like torrent matches because the bitrate is still not good enough for my tastes. Too hard to follow the ball, and just very annoying to watch on the eyes.
