  1. As you say Ewan, it’s now keeping track of what is going on, which NF to watch…

    I know that each nation is really only interested in their own NF and it’s only us mad fanatics who get annoyed with clashes but don’t you think that maybe the ‘smaller’ nations should think about scheduling their NF apart from everyone else? A bit like how Minardi in F1 used to get their cars out first to get some tv coverage? Just me?

    I better get my blogging arse into gear… 😉

    Co-ordinate for a few thousand online fans, or make sure you spend your TV budget money to get the maximum return for hundreds and thousands of national viewers? It’s an easy call… you go for the maximum.
