Sons Snubbed By Cup TV

February 20, 2014

THERE has been some ‘outrage’ arising from yesterday’s news that Sons’ exciting Scottish Cup quarter-final tie with Aberdeen is not to be shown to a wider footballing audience following a snub from BSkyB and the BBC.

Three games from the four available ties were earmarked for TV coverage and it was widely expected that the Dons, in fine league and cup form, facing a re-surgent Championship club (Dumbarton) unbeaten in 2014 would get the nod from the bigwigs who decide such things.

Apparently not.

The Sons have been dumped. No other phrase for it.

We think it’s a little unfair.

In an ideal world, football matches should take place on a Saturday afternoon at 3pm and for many fans avoiding the sometimes ridiculous re-scheduling that TV brings is welcome.

However in this particular instance given all that is at stake, a little disruption to the norm would have been accepted, especially as the club would benefit financially.

We’d like to hear your thoughts on the matter. Are you disappointed that our Sons heroes won’t be given the platform of live TV to showcase their talents next month?

Let us know via the comments section below.
