1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Don't think it's a done deal yet is it? You can guarantee that the ECB will fight it all the way, that's a lot of money to lose.

Sky could still buy the rights and put the matches out on Sky Sports News on the Freeview platform, so still retain the rights for highlights and be able to brand the matches heavily as publicity. Perhaps it could be a win win scenario.:)

No, not a done deal, but I do so wish you hadn't dented my hopes!

Keep positive and think "It will happen. It will happen" (ad inf)


On the flip side, I suspect te only "win win" scenario will be the Aussies recovering their little urn (I always thought it was Little Ern ............ )
