  1. Brett says:

    Any word on if Setanta is still going to be carrying the Premier League since any mention of it’s been removed from their website? Also noticed the Champions League has been removed from its list of leagues/tournaments covered; both are sublicensed from Fox.

  2. Simon Burke says:

    Kartik had thus only come a day later :) though I wonder if Shane was epltalks source here

  3. Jason says:

    Kartik,

    You need a cough button or something. Your breathing too heavily into the mic.

  4. John says:

    Has he left Setanta Sports?
    Looks like Setanta are going back to bar sports only and letting the old name die.

  5. John says:

    Gaffer, was his brother one of the founding duo of Setanta Sports?
    Didn’t they just change the name over the door in SF and revert to the old business model.

    • The Gaffer says:

      John, yes Michael O’Rourke was one of the founding partners of Setanta Sports. As for changing the name over the door, that I’m not aware of that since I don’t live near SF.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  6. John says:

    Nor do I.
    Technology helps negate such handicaps.
