    For me, Sky wins hands down with 'Soccer AM' (although there's very little to do with football on it!), and Soccer Saturday with Jeff Stelling (the man's a comic genius!)

    That said, MOTD still has some reverence, but it's never the same watching it on a Sunday morning... and I do miss the ITV Vidiprinter on Saturday afternoons.... the anticipation when the typing used to stick was unbearable.

    Best music has to be Ski Sunday though... or Test Match Cricket, for Booker T's 'Soul Limbo'...

    Best commentator: Sid Waddell (Darts) - no need to watch, listening to him is entertainment enough!

    That's out of order. The ridiculous overhype of games and schoolboy excitedness of Andy Gray makes this a seriously unprofessional programme IMO.

    I agree with your comment about Andy Gray, and the fact that he tries to make Bolton v M'boro sound like a European Cup Final... however, I think your opinion could be based on more than the fact that AG is a nob?

    I'll spell it out for those that have trouble reading.

    Football was a minor sport before television. Television would have remained an insignificant medium if not for football. American football and television were made for each other. The best TV sports program is the most watched American football game: the Superbowl. Nothing else even comes close.

    To be concise, football was made for television was made for football.

    I'm pretty sure that the success of television in the UK (and most of the rest of the world) has had relatively little to do with American Football.

    The success of television in the rest of the world had a lot to do with American broadcasting technology, so you might look a bit deeper into history to learn the unfortunate truth that a stupid sport that has done more to wreck American schools than just about anything else nevertheless has immense global historical significance. Of course, when the winning Super Bowl coach says that his team has just won the world championship, we realize how provincial they (we) remain in the colonies. Nevertheless, the event has significance beyond what the players themselves realize.
