I apologize in advance if I misspell anything in this post since I am typing through tear filled eyes. I have bad news USA, our friends over at Pitchslap (awesome name) have informed us that we will be made to wait for any type of ESPN style coverage of the EPL here in the states. A statement by Setanta clearly swings the hammer crushing my dreams:
Statement from Setanta reads, “This development [terminated contract with Barclays] does not affect our channels and other services in the US. Setanta Sports in the US is a separate operation that has [a] separate agreement to show the Barclay’s Premier League.”
This feels like a kick in the groin. No wait, that’s too quick, it’s more like a stepping on. My stomach hurts, I need to lie down.
