First topic message reminder :

Looks like sky are getting the rights to the 6ns with BBC and ITV being told they can’t team up anymore.

So what’s the thoughts here? Surely only those into rugby will pay for the subscription which will mean bringing in new fans will be that bit more difficult?

Time for the local clubs to get the biggest share of the TV windfall to invest in grass roots rugby (yeah that’ll be right eh)

What have I missed Soul. Read it again and he appears to not realise what is covered and what isnt.

Nope it's clear he knows what is covered hence the language, if he thought the six nations were a Category A event he'd just say he would not be happening but the need for discussion makes it clear he knows that isn't the case.

It is in english. To clarify hes trying to make out that the 6 nations is covered by something it isnt to pressure people to keep it on terrestrial tv so the government dont have to alter their protected sports list. That or he doesnt know what is covered.

It was an incomprehensible sentence.

It's a category B event and it's always been assumed it would stay on terrestrial tv which he alludes to.

Really? Why would he assume that it (being the live games rather than hightlights) would remain on terrestrial tv if it's not covered? I think my opinion has gone from embarrassed for him to just thinking hes a bit thick.

Do you have problems with comprehension? I said it has been assumed not he assumed.

So if he hasn't been as stupid to assume that the 6 nations live rights are going to stay on terrestrial: why is he talking about it?

A parliamentary bill has been put forward may have something to do with it or it may be considered to be in the public interest but you stick with your rhetoric instead.

It's a crying shame you've not been booted but you are worth a laugh now and then.

You appear to be trying to insult me and not im entirely sure why Soul. It's clear that this MP has made a mistake and thinks the 6 nations live games are protected. Why you're taking his mistake and throwing childish remarks at me is a mystery. What's wrong?

Going back to repeating the same misjudged falsehoods I see, stick to being outraged at Courtney Lawes having an opinion Yahoo

And yet I've not misjudged anything. Hes made a mistake in what he believes is covered in the act. What's lawes got to do with this: has he made the same mistake?

Now you're confusing the broadcasting act with the Ofcom code laughing

I find it helps to read the full statement which makes reference to the six nations being a category b event and the DCMS wanting to move it category a to ensure it stays free to air, whoops.

Wheres the full statement then please Soul. I did ask what I'd missed in the my first reply. If I've missed something from that I'll happily back track and think hes not an embarrassment ( bar being being a member of the conservatives).

Scrub that it's just point 4 in the letter. Read a few paragraphs above.

Well that would be down to you to gather all the facts instead of basing an opinion on selected information.

Oh I have Soul. 'Any transition to a transmisisins via a subscription service would clearly go against the spirit of the listed events approach'. So would you agree that a move to sky for live games goes against the agreement for the 6 nations being a cat b comp? Or do you think he is mistaken?

So in your opinion he is aware that it has nothing to do with protected sporting events issue but hes trying to put pressure on them.

To be fair, based on some of the mince I've seen on social media and other forums on Rugby Topics over the last few weeks, the sooner the 6N gets behind a pay wall the better.
