Basically, Covid-19 has pushed the US Open (the only men’s pro golf tournament that’s part of the package) to the Autumn, and it now clashes with Fox’s NFL coverage, and Fox has (as you would) picked the 20-21 weeks of NFL coverage over the USGA rights.

We discussed try replay music in rugby league a few weeks ago and I mentioned about Union not having followed suit. I fear I spoke too soon as Fox Sports Australia used it on their coverage of the (daftly named) Super Rugby AU this morning, if nowhere near as cheesey as their NRL music.

you've just given me a flashback to PyeongChang - for the first day or so, they ran replays in silence; then after that they ran them with the OBS host theme tune.

My maths might be wrong but I think that's 8 games left for Sky and 2 for BT on the final day.

Some good news has been reported about The League of Ireland. It will restart it's football season from the 31st of July after the FAI approved a new format to resume the tournament after a meeting with FAI board meeting last night.

This could mean that Eir Sports & RTÉ will restart their TV right deals again to broadcast these games behind closed doors very soon.

The World Feed version is on the IOC official YouTube channel, so I guess anybody who particularly wanted to watch it again probably already has done?

Or owns the DVD?

The Director's Cut looks like it went out once, one year after.

The 'Imagine...' documentary from 2016 would be a good companion to it too - I'd happily watch that again.

It appears that the director's cut is indeed the same version as went out in 2013, and the Imagine... documentary will be going out on BBC Two during the Friday afternoon, alongside a programme about the torch relay, first shown in 2012.

I believe the final day maths are Sky 7, BT 2, AZPV 1. I’m open to correction there.
