    West Upper - Block Q
  1. RamsTV

    I'm honestly not sure on this one. We will dial in to the number provided as we have done for years. It's up to the club whether or not they will broadcast their own RamsTV audio pre and post-match.
  2. RamsTV

    Pretty sure that anyone in the UK won't be able to watch the broadcast live but will be able to subscribe and hear our coverage as they have in previous years.
  3. RamsTV

    Honestly RoyMac5, I haven't watched much at all. And yes, of course you're right. But it is still very different. You don't need to describe what is happening in detail, because people can see it. So it's more about identifying players, adding something to the pictures and nailing the big moments. As far as I understand it, that won't be an option. I imagine it'd be tricky to sync up the pictures with our commentary.
  4. RamsTV

    There's a big difference between radio commentary and TV commentary. Graham - and I'm sure he wouldn't mind me saying this - would probably be a bit lost on a TV commentary. Look at Alan Green. Great on 5Live (even though plenty don't like him), positively mediocre on Match of the Day.
  5. Derbys media strategy

    It was more because I have been over this again & again. The situation didn't come from me, as I've explained. We reacted the stories elsewhere in the media, we gave Steve a chance to respond. He made a bit of a mess of that over a few months. None of that was my fault, came from me, or anything. I've explained the situation and explained the flaw in your theory. If you don't want to change you opinion accordingly, that's up to you.
  6. Derbys media strategy

    *Sigh* I only followed up with more questions on the Newcastle situation when it was dragged up again by the national media or others. It didn't come from me. I was as sick of it as anyone. Go back and listen to the interviews. As for bringing it up, talking about it again & again - a lot of that was because it was what supporters were talking about, and asking us about. Whether you like it or not, it was a major talking point, and that's what sports shows tend to do, talk about things. I have no issue at all with you not liking me, or thinking I'm not very good at my job, or whatever. But what you are factually wrong about something I'm going to correct it.
  7. Ramsplayer

    As far as I'm aware, the plan is to do updates on a couple of the Saturday games, but no commentary. I'm currently on-loan at East Midlands Today, so that plan might have changed.
  8. Derbys media strategy

    Well, that's the funniest thing I've read in ages. Actually, there were plenty of people high-up at the club that were very happy with my questioning of Steve. They weren't best-pleased about the way he was behaving, either. Oh, and you'll remember there were lots of supporters that thought I should have been harder on him too. I've always enjoyed a good relationship with the club in my six or so years covering them. Yes, there have been a few clashes. That happens when you're doing the job properly. Happy to put you right on this one, as you're 100% wrong. Have a nice day.
  9. Signed: Curtis Davies - 2 year + 1 (option), undisclosed fee

    Nah - he's right.
  10. Ten Years Ago Today...

    Not usually one to promote stuff on here, but I'm going to make an exception this time. Sportscene Special on BBC Radio Derby tonight from 5pm (podcast will be available too) looking back on the 2007 final. I hardly have to say anything, because Colin Gibson, Steve Nicholson & Mark Edworthy are all very good. Honestly the most enjoyable thing I've done for ages. Give it a listen 👍🏻
  11. EFL Radio deal with BBC and TalkSPORT

    Essentially, yes - every station negotiates separately with each club (though I've never been involved directly in that). And I honestly don't know about the Ramsplayer replacement.
  12. EFL Radio deal with BBC and TalkSPORT

    No, local broadcasting rights are negotiated separately.
  13. if Blackman scores

    Asking me would be too easy, wouldn't it? I quite like Nick, and I feel for him in many ways. I remember interviewing him when he signed & him telling me that he wanted to play as a number nine. I'm not sure he's ever really had the chance. Yes, he's had injury problems and I'm sure he'd admit he hasn't found his best form, but he must be frustrated. I genuinely would have loved to see him score today. It might have been a nice touch to let him take it. So from my point of view, I wasn't really mocking him. Though there was a certain element of gallows humour to everything today, I'm not sure it was intended that way by those singing either - it's not like he's Diego Forlan afterall, he hasn't been on the pitch for the most part. That's the view of this "professional" journalist.
  14. Can't speak highly enough of Craig as a human being. The sort of character that football clubs and dressing rooms need.
  15. Darren Bent on Talksport

    Saved me a job, but I'll reply anyway. It's speculation on my part, but I wonder if Bent had already activated his extra year. In fact, here's an interview from February that seems to imply just that . . . https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/feb/07/darren-bent-derby-county-top-flight-leicester-city-fa-cup Maybe, just maybe, Rowett's hands were tied here.
