I just thought I would throw this into the mix - since the start of the season we have only played SIX Saturday home league matches that have kicked off at 3.00pm. What are the chances that Blackburn and Bristol City (in particular) kick off times will be changed?
Oh, and we've had FIVE Friday night home matches to contend with as well. The price of success I suppose.
TV companies will never think of the fans only their subscriber numbers and advertising revenue.
All football clubs have signed into the contract for the cash and they are as complicit as SKY,BT etc in putting the fans down the list of priorities re kick off movements.
But without TV, we wouldn't have the millions from them and the likes of American Express and the other advertisers to afford a team that is among the best in the division!

I think the time has come where there should be a CAP on the number of times a club can have its fixtures altered by Sky.16+ times is absolutely ridiculous, and totally unfair on the fans. Well over a THIRD of our season has been pissed about with, invariably losing our Saturday 3pm's to cuffing Fridays or Mondays. Its a pile of shit.
Obviously money talks though. Sky own football now and can do whatever they want with it, so we just have to bend over and take it up the council.

Has anyone got any inside scoop as to when to expect (Norwich) tickets to be released?
