So there I was sitting at home finally watching the replay of the Swansea against Horsham FA Cup replay on TV today (a day late, yes I know) when Sky Sports did something I couldn’t believe. They did an ESPN trick — i.e. cutting to a live interview with a manager as the match was being played.
It’s one thing for ESPN to do this during Major League Soccer matches, but for Sky to try this tactic is deplorable.
This is nothing brand new. I’ve seen Sky do this before recently, but it’s got to stop. We want to see the football being played on the pitch. We don’t want to see a distracting interview.
