'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Premier League Broadcasting Left In Turmoil

Brits know that Sky and ESPN have the broadcast rights to Premier League football in the UK, but that could end following the landmark ruling from the European Court of Justice.

I'm sure many of you have been following today's events - if you haven't then you can click here to read the finer details.

Saturday 3pm kick-offs have been traditional as eating turkey at Christmas but now all that could change.

Watch the video clip then if you have a solution to the crisis please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section directly below this article.

My solution would be for the Premier League to stop all Saturday afternoon 3pm kick-offs and play their fixtures at other times at the weekend and throughout the week. This may keep, or attract bigger attendances in other domestic leagues. It would also keep alive the traditional Saturday 3pm fixtures and perhaps keep those of you who prefer to watch the Premier League at home and in the pubs, happy.

i don't understand why the epl is freaking out about fan attendance. Here across the pond we have this wonderful institution called Buffalo Wild Wings, with each one having about 40 TELEVISIONS playing every NFL game in the nation on sunda (and other sports too). This has not affected NFL attendance at all....some waiting lists for season tickets are 30 years long

There's sure to be some big changes imminent following this ruling.
