Apparently a lot of RL fans feel the same. According to LE they are cancelling their Sky subscription in droves. I haven't cancelled mine BTW. But then I never had one to cancel. I'm a huge RL fan. I like Union and I love Test cricket, but I wouldn't wipe my backside on any of Murdoch's publications, he is the worst thing that's happened to the British media in my memory.
If Sky are given the choice between not increasing their football bid next time and renewing or severely cutting their RL contract, I know exactly what'll get cut.
