I'm disappointed with The Guardian's coverage of this story, leading with the Beeb losing their exclusive deal, as if it's a disaster, when of course they're going to cover exactly the same matches they had in the last deal and for those who only listen to Five Live they won't notice any difference.
I've only just read their article today, but I agree with you, they've come at it from a very misleading angle. Really the story here is that talkSPORT have won a large chunk of the rights, with the BBC's deal being a sideline as very little has changed there. Yet Media Guardian does tend to report radio sports deals by looking at things from primarily a BBC perspective, so I'm not surprised this was reflected in their headline and opening paragraph, but perhaps they should have taken a different approach for this particular story.

Obviously talkSPORT are the big winners from this deal, but I'm sure BBC Radio 5 Live will be pretty pleased (and relieved) with how things have turned out. They were always going to lose exclusivity and rightly so, but had The FA chosen to sell their rights differently they could have lost out on a share of the rights to potentially significant matches. I'm sure they'll be delighted that this didn't happen and they've been able to secure full, if largely non-exclusive, rights to The FA's matches.

The FA will also have done well out of this you'd imagine. While the BBC probably paid less for their share of FA rights than they did last time around due to their budget cuts and the non-exclusive nature of the deal, surely selling full and near-full rights to two broadcast partners will have secured them a bigger combined sum than selling exclusive rights to one broadcaster last time around did, which in turn will go back into FA competitions and the grassroots of the game.

The BBC Trust come out of this looking very good as well, as their report into the last FA radio rights deal will no doubt have played its part in helping to secure better value for money for the license fee payer (both in terms of cost and choice), which helps demonstrate their value as a body and we as listeners can enjoy listening to FA Cup and England commentaries and now have a genuine choice in where we go to listen to coverage of most of the games covered by these contracts.

The bottom line is that everyone wins, this deal is one we should all be very pleased with.

BBC radio 5live Olympics Extra: Women's olympic football quarter final: GB v Canada.
Anna Foster presenting from the 5live olympics extra studio with John Murray, Ian Dennis and Jen O'Neill (19:30 commentary). this commentary was also broadcast on BBC local radio in Coventry.
5live had updates from John and Ian, with whichever of them not commentating feeding in to the 5live output.
I think tonight was the first timed that all 3 5live stations were used for olympics coverage. 5live had swimming and athletics, 5live olympics extra had the football and 5live sports extra had the Andy Murray match. I suspect this was a late change, primarily caused by the fact that the first tennis semi final went on for so long that Murray would have clashed with the football. it meant that rugby league got bumped until the second half, but I'm sure it won't mind!

5live olympics extra will, as I'm sure we all suspected have full commentary from Cardiff tomorrow of the men's quarter final-- hopefully a better performance/result in that one.

So there is a change from BBC Radio Scotland this season, they will only have one commentary available on a Saturday that will be going out live on 810MW. No longer will every SPL game have a dedicated commentary.

Sportssound on twitter explaining the ratings for Open All Mics was good so worth developing that more.

I reckon it could rather be a cost thing... (Or even better but i doubt it they could put comms onsite for Sportscene)

Thanks for that. I didn't catch any of BBC Coventry & Warwickshire's coverage last night and due to the BBC's much-publicised online radio rights restrictions the programme (plus others that C&W/WM have done from Olympic venues) hasn't been uploaded to the iPlayer.

It'd be interesting to know if C&W did their own presentation with someone like Clive Eakin or if they took the full 5 Live Olympics Extra coverage with Anna Foster.

I'm afraid I don't know, i only realised it was covered on BBC C and W were taking the 5live olympics extra coverage because Ian Dennis mentioned it a couple of times. I suspect though that they would have had their own presentation as the show was scheduled to run from 19:00 and 5live olympics extra were covering other sports (including water polo) up until about 5 minutes prior to kick-off.
for information, it will be Mike Ingham, John Murray and Dion Dublin in Cardiff tonight for GB v South Korea in the men's football quarter final. Ian Dennis provided updates from newcastle of Brazil v Hornduras.
