It's very plausible. After all, it's goals that make the game spin for most fans. It's also one of the reasons why they don't whistle the passive off-side.

but it honestly is very bad imo... maybe its the goalkeeper speaking in me but I personally think it sucks that they try to invent even more ways to make the job of a goalkeeper difficult... especially since those types of balls are "slippery" which means they try to make goalies more prone to MISTAKES which they will be blamed for

Bad news for me...only the Spanish NT games and some other game (like semifinals or final) will be broadcasted for free in Spain. For the rest of games I´ll have to pay or try to watch them on the net.


This mean that 90% of Spain won´t see Mutu finally playing and he will continue like an unknown :tongue:




Of course there are many football fans angry with the fact that the rest of games won´t be shown for free :wallbang:

That's nonsense. At least here in Canada we'll be able to watch all the games, tho you have to pay for basic cable to get a channel called TSN or RDS (French one).

I pay for cable channels in my home. But none of them shows Euro 08 (unless Eurosport does, but I doubt it). The society that adquired the emission rights in Spain will use a generalistic channel for the Spain games (they are forced by law to show them for free) and the final game. The rest of games will be broadcasted on pay per view stations.

Well actually that´s very true.

Certainly there will be chances to watch the games online. It is growing and such a big event will certainly get people to broadcast it.

If the ball is slippery then the keepers need to work on their positioning more and get their body behind the ball more. They have enough time to adjust to it.

Every game will be broadcast here in the US for free.

I read that all the tickets for Romania are gone...
My Dad spoke to Gabi on Monday and Gabi said plenty are available. Although that was if we wanted to go. He has his annual Christmas party on Saturday night so I'll ask him then. I promise.

Sorry it's taken so long guys but between my work and him being out of the country and working it's been tough for me to see him and ask him. :moan:

Not to rub it in but I'm pretty sure every game will be broadcast in Spanish as well.

Although no game was broadcasted from Euro 2004 unless you had Fox Soccer Channel (which I do) and at that it was only 3 games a week all on tape delay. It was bad.

Yeah, that's a joke. Quite shocking really. I would have just assumed that every European country would have all the Euro games live on basic cable. It's made even worse when Canada and the States will even show every game live.
