Campaign for airing entire Love Match evening?

I posted this in the love match thread too:

As the doubles with Clouseau in fact was the most entertaining of all, pure 100% entertainment, I was almost rolling at moments , I think it would be a huge shame if that wouldn't be aired sometime though. They must have the entire event, including wheelchair tennis, on tape imo, as the cameramen where continuously filming...

Shouldn't we Belgians start a sort of writing campaign to Canvas, and La2, asking them to show the ENTIRE event?

-it's a great opportunity to get familiar with wheelchair tennis, these athletes deserve all the attention and respect for their achievements!
- as the event had Clouseau and then the other singer there, another reason to show that as it will attract many, many viewers, it will be a top hit in the weekly ratings
- just because of the pure entertainment value of the doubles with Clouseau, and Lleyton and Kim singing, which would be better entertainment than many things they show on TV anyway; Even if you know 0 about tennis, it would still be fun.
-If I'd be them, I would sell the entire thing to Australian channels, at least. This is such a potential.

Wonder where their marketing mind is...
Why don't they air it entirely then, for heaven's sake!

so far my rant...


What do the Belgian CCLers think? should we write to Canvas, La2?

Please post your comments, thoughts here and we can prepare some campaign!

As to complaining to Belgacom because they only have put the Love Match online for ADSL users, all details to contact them are in the Love Match thread.

The more people write an email to them, the better! (not that I have hopes they'll change their mind, but what else to do, one never knows too)

I think this is a great idea, we should definitely do that, maybe you can also post the message on Kim's official website cos there are also a lot of people who think like this

i'm happy that they showed the actual love game live on la deux & on canvas in uitgesteld relais, so maybe we could thank them for that?

can you expect more then that?? we have to be honest, i don't think so.... there are so many other sports that almost get no attention on tv, so try to be happy with what you get

don't forget this is national television

tv limburg might show more, so look out for that

Well, this summer VRT is opening a separate sports network (Sporza I believe), to be able to show all summer sporting events. But I read in the papers that they have "dead" periods which they have to fill up (between the big events). Perhaps we can suggest they air the complete Love Match in that period? Its cheap for them, and I believe they were planning on using material from the archives anyways...

But it won't hurt to thank them for already airing the match, after all it was only an exibition, and they had to change their normal schedule for it .

Anyway, Canvas has its own forum, and the few times I posted a question on that, they always replied. It also has the advantage that other viewers - non WTA world as well - can react on your post; it makes for unexpected support sometimes .

We sure should thank them for airing the actual match.
I was thinking of sending a nice request that we even could draft here and people then could copy and paste to send it.

As to "can you expect more...": My question is for all the people who couldn't be there, as this after all was a very unique event. There is less entertaining stuff shown on TV than this. They have a hit in their hands with this (internationally too).
And god, national TV, these two are international stars! Clouseau isn't really known lol, but that's not a point as they played with Kim and Lleyton.

I agree that the match would be a huge hit, but not Kim singing "Paradise by the Dashboard Light"!!

Now Lleyton re-releasing ""The Weather with You" would be awesome!! They could get it out in time for Wimbly and use it to fill in when the rain delays happen (what a lovely change from bloody Cliff Richard, who seems completely unaware that people dont want to hear him sing "Bachelor Boy" any more)

Maybe Kim could just do some backing vocals on Lleyton's single ........

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers
