    It's like anything, you pays your money a takes your pick.

    My mate pays far more to play his golf down the road.

    I like my football and don't mind paying for it.

    I just get don't all the bellyaching - especially when so many pirate the matches as well.

    Edit: How much does it cost to down the pub to watch a match, for say 3 pints and your a smoker + Kabab?

    I live 6000 miles away and watch any tottenham match I choose to and never pay any penny, you're a mug if you pay anything with hundreds of internet channels showing our games and I watch HD games with no interruption or picture break up

    Test cricket is and always will be to me numero uno, but that came at a price. You see that Cricket in the 90s documentary on SkySports and the lifted the top players from counties to get England to where they are now, otherwise County would be number one and Counties like Essex (my second love after Spurs) would have Cook in his best years and more fans through the gates.

    I agree also on 20/20 but again reverting back to Essex, the club would not survive without it now

    SpreadEx has this chart on returns for betting on one team to win each PL game. If I understand correctly, you only win with West Ham and Leicester. No wonder bookies like this sort of betting.

    Just stumbled across this. It makes a lot of sense, would have liked a 'profit' column as well.

    i.e. Leicester = £492-£380= £112 profit.

    The way they do it makes it look like a positive return for betting on 16 of 20 clubs. That is much better for business than showing a loss on 18 of 20.

    It's the main reason I have Sky to watch Test cricket, the ability to watch England play around the world in the winter is great. I can't stand 20/20 cricket and it is draining the talent from county cricket and virtually decimating the West Indies test team.
