Of course you're right - share of the ad market is obviously a more relevant overall metric.

But the reason I quoted that stat is to illustrate that nobody else currently competes at all at the "top...

Just coming back to my post 51, I thought the coverage improved enormously from around about 9.15am or 9.30pm when most of the Brits had finished.

An interesting giveaway is the CBS logo (usually on...

Yes - thought it was Butch but not 100% certain.

There was another similar comment at around 12.15am but not so obvious and content not so bad.

Yes - if you know please advise - together with source.

I'll guess it's 3 years - previous contract was 3 years and Augusta doesn't normally do very long contracts.

Note that BBC also use the phrase "multi-year".

So appears that Augusta, BBC and Sky all agreed on that wording - ie exact length of contract not revealed.

Under current deal Sky supposedly paying 12m per year and BBC 2m per year.

A bit of both really.

With Sky already having the PGA Tour to 2022 and the European Tour to 2018 then BT has no opportunity for regular golf.

They could have still tried to acquire rights to the...

Man Utd win and get drawn with Chelsea in CL semi and the CL semi 2nd leg is on the Tue.

Any other combination means Southampton v Everton stays put.

Everton failed in 2005.

One reason the English club almost always qualifies is because they are almost always seeded.

If Liverpool (OK, now unlikely) or Everton come 4th they will be unseeded.
