So first of all F1 wanted rid of the privateers. Next, they wanted all nicely painted tracks that look all pretty. Then they don’t want the new teams because they won’t have the money to be competitive. Now, they don’t want the fans watching, no?
I pay 2k for a nice LCD television to watch HD content on for my two favourite sports (F1 and professional wrestling). WWE had sorted HD long ago, yet F1 I thought, would have sorted it for 2009. No, we wait til 2010. No? 2011? Ok…
After one year of HD and F1 presented in a fantastic fashion, that’s all I get.
I pay for Virgin, because fortunately, I quite like football, too. But because i’m getting the Sky Sports package on Virgin, I don’t get it in HD. Ok. I pay more for it, because afterall, I paid 2k for the television to watch HD on. Then I hear F1′s going to Sky. Hoping it’s HD, no extra charge etc.
Now I hear no HD, just to make me pay 200 quid to break off of my Virgin contract. Unbelievable.
What more do you want from me?!
People think i’m overreacting, but if we shell out so much to watch stuff in HD like it was designed to be, then after just one ponsy year, I now can’t?! It’s pathetic.
Bernie’s not just content turning fans away from wanting to watch a GP in the Middle East somewhere, but now he doesn’t want eyes on his sport full stop.
Ok. You be happy with the elitists then!
