Stupid kick off time

Post by ellis9 » Tue Feb 02, 2016 10:53 pm

On Saturday, Tigers kick off at 3pm. England kick off at 4:50pm so literally as the Tigers game finishes.

Presumably, because of all the god damn moaning from fans about kick off times, Tigers have decided to leave this weeks match at 3pm on Saturday where as the other 2 Premiership games kick off at 2pm.

There is no chance of getting home in time for the England game!

Yes I presumed it would be but I prefer to watch games either in person or at home on the TV. I don't like watching it on TV in a public place as you don't get to watch it properly and hear what the commentators are saying.

The Tigers game should be an earlier kick off.

Pots? Kettles? It's nothing to do with moaning fans. The Tigers v Sale match does not clash with the Calcutta Cup match and the club sees this as an opportunity to raise a bit more cash by showing Scotland & England in the bars. Some people will stay to watch it and some won't.

It appears you have four choices.

1. Stay at Welford Road and watch the Calcutta Cup match straight after the Sale game.
2. Stay at home and watch the Calcutta Cup match live but miss the Sale game.
3. Get all concerned (Leicester, Sale, Radio Leicester etc) to change all their schedules because YOU don't want them to kick off at 3pm.
4. Record the Calcutta Cup match and watch it 'as live' after returning home from Welford Road.

Personally, I'll be employing option 4.

I don't expect Ellis is the only person not happy with the 3pm kick-off time. On the other hand, there are available options as you rightly say.

Donny, the penny has finally dropped! This partly was my point! You said it doesn't suit ME so perhaps the schedules should change to suit ME. All the moaners who complain about different kick off times might realise these things don't revolve around THEM.

That was the point I was making.

However, if everyone hadn't been moaning, I reckon Tigers would have moved this have to 2pm.

A bit of a waste of money if you're a ST holder or already have a ticket for Saturday's match plus the 6N aren't on Sky.

Seriously? And miss out on a chance to make a few quid?

Ah yes but apparently, when all the other games are moved, Tigers don't think of the fans so surely it's the same in this instance?

For Ellis 9 why not stop at Welford road and watch the match on the big screen or in the Final Whistle Bar or one of the other lounges?
