Setanta Raises Stakes to Lure Martin Tyler

The People newspaper is reporting that Setanta Sports has offered football commentator Martin Tyler at least double his current Sky salary to move to Setanta in the summer.While the reported offer may be difficult to turn down, it may be a difficult decision for Tyler. Does he leave Sky, where he’s undoubtedly the number football commentator, to move to Setanta to launch their Premiership coverage in the UK?What it does say about Setanta is that they’re serious about having a quality product to offer UK residents starting next season. If the Irish company is able to acquire Tyler, this will go down as a massive coup. Is there a more famous football commentator in the world right now?

    Alan Parry is the man to get. Never been a huge fan of MT-He needs Andy Gray with him.

    While MT does a classy job, from where I sit he doesn’t get the best games anymore. He seems to call the Reading match most weeks, hardly the marquee matchup! I don’t see why he should turn it down. Better to be the big fish in a small pond…
