    Can you guys talk about the long-term future of bein?

    – Serie A left BeIn
    – Ronaldo left La Liga; the Clasico matchups aren’t going to be as big of a draw
    – Messi is probably done in 3 or 4 years
    – Ligue 1 is not a big draw
    – bein has little content outside of soccer

    How does bein survive long term?

      Hi Anthony, we discussed the Serie A situation with beIN SPORTS on the last podcast at

      Also in one of the recent podcasts at we discussed the future of beIN SPORTS especially if they lose out on the rights to LaLiga which finish with the end of the 2018/19 season.

        Hi Christopher can you guys discuss whether you think the ICC needs to do be revamped so far it’s been plagued by poor attendance and relatively lackluster TV ratings. Has the American footie fan moved on from this type of tournament? Would it be better to go back to the style of 5 yrs ago when there was K-Leagu, Liga MX and MLS teams involved too.

    I hope Serie A and FA Cup ends up on ESPN+.
