So will you just not watch and maybe listen to it on the radio, or not follow at all?

Sorry, I meant I won’t be paying BT for this one (or SKY for any others) in addition to the subscription which I already pay.

I’ll probably watch on a stream, failing that I’ll listen to Popey and Noel Whelan. I put that out on Twitter yesterday, which Noel Whelan ‘liked’ so I’ll have to now :lol: :lol: :lol:

I’ll find a stream somewhere I’m not paying £15 as a lot of others won’t. They did something similar in boxing now they’re trying to do it in football. £15 this season and trust me it won’t stop there.

I refuse to pay for Sky or BT.
Both are overpriced IMO.

I've just changed broadband provider too, because Virgin are taking the .. mick.

Do the same except for the ST. Won't be paying myself either, though I know I'll have to fight temptation come the game.

LUTV was only a fiver for overseas, it was a tenner if you were in the UK/Ireland. So would you have paid or gone audio only? :think:


:think: Hmmm, a tenner would be ok, but I would probably be a little more selective...

Even aside from the price being steep for a game of football, I think it's important as fans that as many people as possible boycott this farce. If we accept it and give them even an inkling they can get away with it, PPV for the bigger games will be the norm and the new broadcast standard before we know it.

Hugo, you are getting it cheaper than what they want to charge in the UK where it is 14.95 per game and not per month where it cost you $20.
Owners come and go but Leeds United will be there forever, for the fans - keep Marching on Together.
