Coming Around?

May 15, 2012 at 1:40 pm 1 comment

It was intersting to watch Fox Sports News today following Manchester City’s remarkable clinching of the English Premier League and discussing whether all of the final games in the Hyundai A league should be played simultaneously on the last day of the season.

There are several issues to contend with here, one England does not have four different time zones to contend with as Australia does when the final game comes around.

Secondly Fox Sports are the ones who determine the fixturing and even though the ability to switch from game to game may be there, as with the EPL, the question is whether they would have the man power to be able to simulcast several Hyundai A league games at the same time?

This viewer was certainly interested in the debate as he was lambasted for raising the issue on air at the final Hyundai A league game of the 2009/10 season, when with Wellington Phoenix playing the Friday night and winning, Perth Glory’s home game on Saturday became superfluous as they already knew that no matter what the result they would have to travel to New Zealand for their first finals match. A game they subsequently lost.

It would appear that maybe there really is a time and a place to air your thoughts…

    The final day of the EPL session was amazing but not going to happen every year, A-league does not have relegation and limited spots available in ACL which means possibly all games have no meaning on the final round maybe a flexible schedule that could change game times to be played at the same time only if the title has a chance of changing hands or ACL positions still up for grabs
