Australians & People Of Other Regions: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

Fellow Australians, I don't know if you are as angry as me that there is NO way to watch the YEC here on TV whatsoever. They are so sexist, seriously. All they show is ATP The Paris Masters just ended and there's still a week till the Masters Cup. Why didn't they show the WTA YEC? They did last year

I think we should all email fox sports and hopefully try to persuade them into getting SOME form of airing on TV. I'd still appreciate if it wasn't even live, or even if they showed just a few matches, I just really wanna watch.

I tried to find their email here but failed to, see if you can...

http://www.foxsports.com.au/

Thankyou.

EDIT: Everyone, we have found an email (thanks to Bahriahn) - please email feedback@foxsports.com.au if you want WTA events to be shown!

Re: Australians: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

Exactly, and I think it would be quite effective even if at least 15-20 people wrote to them.

Re: Australians: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

Im definatly in on that. They have 1 extra chanel this year so there i even more time to show some tennis yet they continue to show sports that only a small minority of that care for. They need to get their heads screwed on.

Re: Australians: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

Ugh, I know. Right now they have kick boxing, driving and athletics...later they have extreme sports...

GAH! I think they'd rather show an ITF Men's Tournie rather than the YEC. Grrr, they treat it like it's not even a real sport.

With the introduction of the new channel today, we now actually have 5 sports channels, as well as two sports news channels, and they can't take a couple hours out of their fucking busy soccer schedule to put a couple WTA matches on.


Gisela Dulko. Forever.


Also I like Rena.

Re: Australians: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

Same for sports channels in Thailand and asia. They added 4 new channels and all they have on it is boxing, gold, football etc.. re runs all day. they cant even put in any LIVE wta tournaments other than grand slams (which is cut over by "more important" mens matches)
anyways i found a livestream site for Versus (a channel thats covering the YEC)
TVU Player Download the program and you will find Versus on the sports tab.
Its working fine with awesome picture and audio. Hopefully it will work for all of you tomorrow.
enjoy

ANA IVANOVIC
JELENA JANKOVIC
NOVAK DJOKOVIC



Svetlana Kuznetsova. Martina Hingis. Amelie Mauresmo. Maria Sharapova. James Blake. Andy Roddick. Marat Safin.

Re: Australians: We Should All Complain To Fox Sports (No YEC)

There is darts and fishing scheduled to be shown this week on Fox Sports
I realise its not as simple as just putting tennis on (they need to purchase the rights etc) but surely its more worthwhile to show one of the biggest WTA events over replays of darts and fishing....
