    Its had a good innings but the format of the programme has been tired for quite some time and I'm surprised it has lasted this long when sport on telly is almost 24/7 what with the majority of us having Sky. It got to the stage where all it was showing was third-rate sporting events, the likes of Football Focus and Final Score will no doubt become separate programmes but most people are either watching Soccer Saturday or looking at scores on t'internet.

    The only question now is what shit will our licence fee be paying for instead? :-k

    So no more cross-country from Gateshead, table tennis and third division water-polo (ok, so I went a little far there) - shame, but it had to happen. I shall remember it for the rugby league in particular in the late eighties - Martin Offiah, Ellery Hanley et al in your living room every Saturday - brilliant! Still ain't getting sky though.....
