    Seems like NBC in the Twin Cities has declined to show the Leister v Liverpool game today. I thought it was a national broadcast.

    Why is Jon and Jim on such a boring game? I know Newcastle has 3 wins in a row or sth, but at least he’s gonna do one of those top six teams right?

      Champion was on Leicester v Liverpool today (a cracker) and is slated to do the sole Sunday game as you mention.

    Good. I was fervently hoping that somewhere on this page I would find out which airport Jon Champion connected via and how much of ESPN’s precious cash he spent on snacks in the terminal.

    So we get Higginbotham twice this week, with him working with Tyler again on Monday night. Good.

    ESPN must have spent a fortune shipping Jon Champion to Kansas City for one match, the US Open Cup Final, this past on Wednesday.

    Let’s see:

    1. Business class airfare from London to Kansas City round Trip with one connection. $4400 minimum (via Air Canada, connecting at Toronto Pearson Int’l.)

    2. 2 nights hotel. Around $200 even with a corporate rate negotiated by ESPN’s travel office.

    3. Talent fee. I am guessing around $3000 for one match.

    4. Rental car or chauffer.

    The total tab: around $8000

    Jim Proudfoot for the Saints game. Nice one. Fond memories of him when he did Saints commentaries on South Coast Sports FM radio.

    Drury AND Pleat for the West Ham game? Double yuk. When you do these commentator assignments is there any way to tell us if the game will be broadcast with proper surround sound. Some games are. Some aren’t.
    If they are then we can turn down the center speaker. Null the commentators but still hear the crowd well from the side and back speakers. Essential when they inflict Drury on us.

    Saints 2 Man Utd 0

      I know, the deadliest duo of Drury and David Pleat (like almost every England game). Time for NBC picture with 5 Live commentary.
