Are you not entertained?

Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. The attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.

Episode 17: Grant and Roger enjoy commenting on the international week, dwelling on diverging fortunes for the home nations; the ongoing purgatory of Scotland, and the fearless youth of England. In addition, the return of Vialli to his beloved Sampdoria? Is playing Serie A in China….the thin end of the wedge? Points deductions for breaking FFP, end of “speculate to accumulate”? Ronnie O’Sullivan back at No1 in snooker. The clear evidence of the rise of women’s sport. And of course, the rugby big money saga again!
