I hate ITV, i have decided. Firstly, they make a load of crappy channels that i can't access with Sky Digital. Then, they buy the rights off the Beeb for the Saturday highlights.
MOTD was great, one of the reasons was because you had to wait until 10:30pm to watch it. When i found out "The premiership" was on at 7pm i was pretty pissed off, but when i saw that there were 5 advert breaks, and about only 30 minutes of football, i was completely mad.

I'm no football fan, but last night at a friend's place they had this ITV programme on, (the late-night repeat).
Even I can see it's no good, but that's the corrupting influence of too much money, loads of adverts to pay the huge cost of taking the rights from the BBC.
Yet who got the biggest audience for a game recently, the BBC for England V Germany!
