    Was going to get rid of cable TV (not working and all that), and then I find I have SBS 1 and 2, so I have sorted all my problems out for the month of July. Either that or watch the Ashes on Fox Sports.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    So The Ashes is on normal SBS and the Tour on SBS 2?

    So both networks are grabbing the Sky feed for this? Shame we won't be hearing any Boycs and co this time around.

    BSkyB's coverage certainly is, so the option is definately there.

    Good to see (or should that be hear) Warne in the commentary box. Breath of fresh air, actually talks loudly, shows his great cricketing brain and isn't scared to state his opinion. Love hearing him talking up spinners and how a spinner should come on at this time and how the spinner should bowl and how he should get the tailenders out by tossing it up and everything else. The greatest captain Australia never had.

    Try to hold on but it hurts too much, try to forget but it's not enough to make it all OK.

    What a motley crew!
    Worst. host. ever. Tries to act as the one-eyed Aussie supporter but just fumbles his lines and I get the feeling Marto is uncomfortable with his presence and inane comments. I know it won't happen but get Kerry O'Keefe in there

    I reckon SBS should have gotten one professional presenter and the other 3 as secondary presenters. Always brings a chill to the spine when MacGill goes to an ad break or everytime he's facing the camera. It's like he's nervous or something.

    Simon Hill was class the last time around. He knew how to work a panel. Oh well, SBS's loss is Fox's gain. Quality lead for their Premiership coverage.

    MacGill's attempts at self-deprecating humour grate more than anything for me.

    *Johnson bowls a wayward spell, commentary team make comments about Johnson taking wickets with long hops*

    "And I thought *I* was the only person who took wickets with wayward bowling!"

    *pause for laughter*

    *crickets*

    *my teeth grind*
