Ahh, I stand corrected then. If the India and New Zealand tours are anything to go by, Fox will just show the feed as they recieve it and go back to their "expert panel" during breaks. This is a blessing, as we will get the decent Sky team and not have to deal with Dean Jones or Jeff Thompson.Mister Wright said:Fox have exclusive rights. They will more than likely use the feed, and probably have their own commentators.
John Laws CBE said:On the contrary Ray, my callers have insisted that i come on and set the record straight. There seems to be a few too many plodders on here and ive taken it as my responsibility to restore some kind of order.
With respect to Les's offer, ill be writting him a detailed email this afternoon outlining exactly why i believe i am the man for the job.
Yes Ray, I understand all that and i fully support you in your quest to commentate the ashes. Ive been a big fan for a long time as you well know. However, if im not given a place in the SBS commentary team then Les Murray and co will lose my support altogether. Ive followed 24 ashes series, ive forgoten more about it than they'll ever know.Ray Hadley said:Yes, yes I understand John...you're morally bound to do what your callers want.
But when it comes to this SBS gig I'm their man, for obvious reasons. As long as they don't employ that hippy plodlodyte, Damien Lovelock, it'll be a great production. I've already sent a detailed email to Les outlining what I think should be the production specs. I've done a few of these, so I've plenty of experience to offer.
