The reason is simply because Wimbledon demand it. They could make much more for the rights from the likes of Sky (Only the finals are on the protected list) but they take the lesser amount from the...

Orange is the Nee Black is only the biggest NETFLIX commission. That could actually mean nothing. For all we know it it could be the 150th most watched show on Netflix which in the grand scheme of...

The problem with video replays is they can only be used to correct decisions when the ball goes immediately dead. There's as many incorrect decisions where the ball doesn't go dead. Imagine the...

No-one said 2 And A Half Men isn't popular. Or that it doesn't even have some laughs in it. But that doesn't mean its good TV, its as generic as it comes and its largely a case of throwing enough...

And as I pointed out above its not his first unprovoked act of violence. Its atleast his 6th incident.

I think your intentionally choosing to ignore a lot of quality that's aired in the last 18months just because it may not be of your tastes.

Most are ignored because the injured party declines to take action. Just as Evra didn't take action over the racism. Unless its like Terry's racism where a member of the public reports it and there's...

And Mutu was worth a good chunk of money when he was sacked by Chelsea. Mutu's compensation was the transfer fee Chelsea paid + signing fees + Damages.

I don't think the rules allow for a permanent ban tbh and any attempt would no doubt be challenged in court and overturned (like the Olympic ban on drug cheats)
