I am so dissappointed from Eurosport. They were showing cycling for 3 hours and now eurogoals. I am wondering who the f*** wants to watch this boring things when they could show RG LIVE. They are just funny. Deffinetely pathetic. :fiery:

joo.

Same goes for men and women hitting balls with rackets while running! :lol:

Giro has been exciting this year and I would rather watch a mountain stage than a Nadal/Federer borefest in the early rounds.

Unforunately that's how it is. After Murray, Federer and Nadal are the two players the BBC will always show. Even though we've seen the Nadal match live on BBCi a match earlier, they'd rather show the highlights to that than any other match.

Roddick finished the carshow ended, so it's Bolelli vs Berdych instead!

urgh, eurosport player in France doesn't have multi-court coverage either. :sad:

I guess we will be watching cycling all week.

Yeh but its better than the ES goals crap. I think coverage will improve when the French Women are out and women that people wanna watch are on court eg. Safina, Ana, JJ, E.D, WS, etc.

I'll never understand why people wanna watch cycling for hours...that's the definition of BOREFEST to me:unsure:

I think this thresd's been done a few times already, and actually Eurosport is NOT a tennis-only channel. I love football and enjoy the weekend review of European ;eagues and I'm sure there are people who love cycling and Giro especially and don't understand why it's not shown in full and is interrupted by tennis. :P

One women's match shown today + the final game of Venus' match :rolleyes:

For me what was pathetic was showing Chardy vs. Alves instead of Schnyder or Bartoli (2 players from top20, former top10).

tbf they have to show other sports, im only saying that cos i have eurosport player due to my lack of tv, so i can watch it all the time :p
showing alves vs chardy was an actual joke, they do that most yrs though, show a pointless mens match that no one gives a fuck about and ignore semi decent women players

Here in Germany Cycling has more viewers than Tennis, so i think it's ok to show the Giro on Eurosport.

I know right :sobbing:
I don't know a single cycling fan, what can be exciting about men riding their bikes for 2 or more hours :sobbing:

Because they had the british superbikes on BE2 and motorcycling is very important to eurosport sponsor/viewing wise.

I also don't always agree with the way ES shows tennis. They should make more use of ES2 but I have a feeling it might have something to do with the agreements they have with events and also sponsoring (ie British ES2 showing more tennis then the international ES2). And basically they can't win whatever sport they chose to air. If they would drop the live Giro coverage the cycling fans get angry. Perhaps the most important reason for me to stick with ES is the fact if it wasn't for ES the only womens tennis I would be able to see would be the four majors. Tennis just doesn't exist for Dutch tv beside the majors, and even those get crappy coverage.

Luckely mens matches ''only'' goes 5 sets and not 7! ;)
So they had time for Caro's match. :) Så jeg klager ikke.

Giro has been exciting this year and I would rather watch a mountain stage than a Nadal/Federer borefest in the early rounds.

I followed the three big cycling races daily up until the 2007 Vuelta, and I never, not even once, remember watching 3 consecutive hours of cycling, not even in the big mountain stages. Flat stages I watched the last 15 kms (about 25-30 mins), mountain stages 90 mins or so at most.

Here in Germany Cycling has more viewers than Tennis, so i think it's ok to show the Giro on Eurosport.

ES in Germany could show a lederhosen fashion show and it would probably have better ratings than tennis.
