    You all probably won't think this is funny, but someone might enjoy it/the comments as much as me.

    Reddit's Royal Wedding match thread, treating it as a soccer game

    I’m going to predict each team will play every other team twice, home and away.

    Gonna go with definite BS because I saw one yesterday with Chelsea v Wolves as an opening weekend fixture.

    Nothing is going to be right until the 14th.

    Saw it all over twitter and figured I'd share. Wasn't sure if it changed anything over here

    Well I think it is a big deal in that it’s a new, deep-pocketed broadcaster that is interested in rights, which in turn is probably good for viewers and definitely good for the FA

    Should mean higher tv payouts probably?

    call me old fashioned, but I really hope streaming services don't buy up all the broadcasting rights for live sports.

    As a current base cable package subscriber but with Netflix/Amazon/Hulu logins from friends/family... yeah, gotta disagree.

    I have netflix and amazon as well (not hulu), but I'd still rather pay for the quality and dependability I get with cable when it comes to live sports.

    like I said, feel free to call me old fashioned but I don't want to watch sports on a lag or with a picture that gets fuzzy from time to time.

    As a longtime cord cutter, I relish the times when I can get live sports on local channels through my antenna.

    UGA/UA National Title game on ESPN streaming was a nightmare. I had to watch the "homer" broadcast to get one that wouldn't buffer

    No more replays in the FA Cup 5th round as well

    Does anyone even like replays? Always a pain in the ass. It's pretty much a tournament, play by tourney rules and go to extras/penalties.

    it's pretty cool when a small side earns a replay on the road against a big club.

    I was planning on going to a home match and an away match in London and all but two opportunities are in April and May (when there is usually nothing to play for at Everton)

    Its better than playing them from say October until late December. Peps teams always dominate that part of the season.
