Sky Sports Are Taking The Piss Thread

3 more of the SPFLs Greatest Games on tonight. 

I think the only non Old Firm games I have seen in that "series" have been Hibs pumping Hearts in a couple of games, and that Motherwell Hibs 6-6 fixture.

2 points between 3 teams at the bottom of the league. Of course Sky choose to show some meaningless Rangers and Celtic games instead.

They are going to show more than 2 games.

They still have another 7 to announce.

Need to show all the games between the bottom three IMO.

I reckon Sky will go for:

Killie-County
Aberdeen-Celtic
Hibs-Celtic
Livi-Aberdeen
Aberdeen-Hibs
Livi-Rangers
Accies-Killie

They'll obviously announce more,  you'll probably get a few relegation dogfight games and maybe games for the Europa places if Livingston get close to the sheep.

Even not accounting for that, Sky have never pretended to be anything else, and have no obligation to be anything else.

If others were willing to give the deal that they were, then maybe others would get more care. They weren't willing to though. So it ended up being Sky.

Another SPFL 'Greatest Games' yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to see Aberdeen v Rangers from 2017.

'Ah this is the cracker from 16/17 where future Leicester and England star James Maddison scores a wonderful free-kick right at the death'  You know, a bit of a narrative to the game, and it was a cracker of a game as I remember.

No, its a game from 17/18, a completely nothing 2-1 win for Rangers.  Boring as fuck. If it's not an Old Firm they show then it has to be a game where Celtic or Rangers win.

St Mirren still only been on Sky once this season, can’t see this changing before the end of the season.

I've seen them show the Livi - Rangers game where Dolly Menga scored the winner once...just before the two teams met again

St Johnstone are only 4 points behind Livingston so the gap from 5th to 6th is smaller than the gap from Livingston to Aberdeen.

Saints are very much looking at catching Livingston who have been in poor form since the start of February.

I think what happens in the Scottish cup will determine how vital the 5th place actually is.

So instead of one 2-1 win they showed another . Also the 2-1 game in question wasn’t really any more boring or entertaining than the other one . 
 

from my memory the game had a sending off which was a huge talking point for a good period after the game and also took place against the backdrop of McInnes possibly going to Rangers that week whilst us and Aberdeen being separated by only a few points for 2nd place. It wasn’t really a nothing game

Yet  another season when we haven't had an away league game on Sky.

And the charlatans phone me and want me to pay them upto £100 a month.

f**k off.

Bet this is the case for lots of clubs. I cant remember last time one of our away games was on Sky.

BT would spread the games around but obviously didnt pay enough.

Well that’s all very good, but in one Aberdeen won, and in the other Aberdeen lost. No contest which one most people want to see. (That’s normal people, not we are the people.)

I get that point. But to say it was a routine nothing game when it wasn’t .

the only routine thing about was the Glasgow Rangers once again leaving pittodrie with 3 points 😎

Beat us twice in a few days with our manager planning his first Rangers team selection...and still finished behind us.

Back in 98/99 - the first season of weekly live games - there was a half hearted attempt at being impartial. Not all Old Firm games were live, for example (the November game was a Saturday 3pm kickoff). 

And I'm sure one of the first games was a horror Dundee-St Johnstone 0-0 draw. 

I'm pretty sure the BBC were the first to do the Old Firm away game trick, when they got the rights in 2002.

We won that one 1-0 to be fair... in the pre-redeveloped Dens days.
