    Take Charge to Channel 9

    No doubt many of you are disgusted at channel 9 heading to the news.
    well I've written them a letter and I urge all of you to do the same.

    Here is a copy of my letter and this is the address for you all to send one to. Let's bombard them with letters. you can use my letter and just change the name if you want or type your own.

    It'd be great if we all got up 'em.

    Agree 100% mate, me and a couple of blokes from work were watching before they axed it....

    We are writing a letter as well as the abusive phonecall we made when it went off...

    The sad thing was that Pidge scored the 50 only 5 balls after they went off air...

    DISGRACEFUL!!!!

    At least they broke for news and not the lottery.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    For some reason in Queensland we don't get any coverage until 2PM.... WHY THE HELL IS THAT???

    I know for the ODI's it's if they aren't sold out then they don't show it to encourage you to go to the ground.... but this is a TEST! They're not going to get a sellout... except the Boxing Day test..

    AFAIK they still do that to make you go to the test match.. Do you still miss it if you live in Cairns?? Your hardly likely to go to the test if you live up there!
    At least you guys dont have to pay 42 per month to watch all the England home tests, (sky get the rights to one of them).. England are always worse off when it comes to cricket broadcasting..

    You just answered your own question.

    I believe the same sort of thing happens on the West Indian island that the current game is taking place on?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    It gets worse, the whole 1st series of the summer is on Sky from 2006 apparently.

    Lord MacLaurin has tried to point out an agreement he made with Chris Smith (not Judge's brother) which makes that a bit dodgy, but I dout that'll stop them.

    Yeah I know.. but it's still hard to believe. Sell-out tests just don't happen...

    Anyway great partnership between McGrath and Gillespie.... thank goodness for ABC radio + Cricinfo

    Figures, I think it's a disgrace that World Cup & The Ashes (away) aren't protected from Sky when tedious garbage like F1 and the Grand National are.
