    Portsmouth/Liverpool rather than Everton/Man Utd on Sept 15?
    Maybe Everton/MU on Setanta Xtra. Fingers-crossed…

    Also, the UK drops daylight savings time a week before the US so:

    Oct 28
    – Bolton/Aston Villa 9:30a ET
    – Liverpool/Arsenal 12n ET

    Nov 3
    – Arsenal/Man Utd 8:45a ET
    – Blackburn/Liverpool 1:15p ET

    FSC got the better games. By far!

  3. bcjohn02 says:

    Does anyone find it very ironic that the games on Sky Sports over in the UK are on Setanta over here?

    No offense to Setanta North America, but what I don’t get is the fact that if they knew what contract they were getting in the UK, why they didn’t bother to get the same time on Saturday in the States.

  4. The Gaffer says:

    Impossible, unfortunately. Fox owns the rights in the U.S., so Fox would have to sublicense those rights to Setanta, or Setanta would have to win the bid for the rights when they’re up for bidding in a few years from now.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

  5. bcjohn02 says:

    Gaf, I understand that. However all I’m saying is Setanta knew what rights they won in the UK, and when the bidding just came up before the end of last season, they should have bid on those same rights here time wise. I know the 10 am games will always be a bone of contention between Setanta and FSC.

    That is unless FSC owns all the rights and then subleases the games of their choosing to Setanta, but that is now how I understood the rights to be divided out.

  6. The Gaffer says:

    FSC owns all the rights in the US and subleases them out to Setanta by their choosing.

    When the rights were up for bidding in the UK, it was UK only and did not include the US, which had been conducted separately.

    In an ideal world, Setanta would have rights to both, but neither Fox or Setanta can afford to solely own them in the US and make a profit. Not yet anyway.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

  7. bcjohn02 says:

    Thanks for clearing that up. I know the partnership FSC/Setanta have forged from last year, but I didn’t know that the rights were only sold to one network. Still, you would have thought Setanta would have leased from FSC those games they have the rights to in the UK.

    When do we find out subsequent scheduling for 2008? I’m trying to plan a trip for February and want to make the best use of a weekend but cannot yet.

    Thanks much.
