I wish people would stop paying the licence fee and tell the BBC why.

I certainly would if it wasn’t illegal.

If you want to be picky then fair enough. The amount of barriers in place to not make it illegal are challenging.

The Pacific Quay clique work a few flankers to benefit the clubs they support and ensure fees are retained within the clique.

 

Two weeks ago, there is no Premiership fixtures because of the winter shutdown. They cover the Championship and Wullie Miller suddenly appears reporting from Dumbarton FC. Of course, the Sons were playing St Mirren that day, and St Boo were due at Pittodrie the following Saturday on Scottish Cup duty. You see Wullie who has played, captained, managed, and been Director of Football at the Dons, gets to do a wee spying mission and pick up his BBC Scotland fee. All clubs accommodate opposition spying teams by issuing complimentary tickets.

 

As Rangers supporters, we became quite used to the above practice during our two seasons in the Championship. Any away game before we played Hearts, Hibs, Falkirk, etc; BBC Scotland would invite Robbie Neilson, Alan Stubbs, Peter Houston, ... etc to sit atop their gantry, pay them a fee whilst they took notes. Do we think Fraserburgh's boss, Mark Cowie will be a surprise guest at Dingwall on Sunday? Mark would probably appreciate the cash more than others mentioned.

Just a pity there wasn't a Rangers radio live commentary on our matches for the Rangers fans who can't attend, don't have sky and miss out!

There used to be on the old website.  Not sure why they binned it - couldn't they just have the audit from Tom Miller pushed into radio commentary ?

Aye!, I remember listening to some matches when off shore where the band width was not enough for viewing but at least I could listen to it!, is it not because of some broadcasting law?
