I believe he was working for them before he came here, and is actually a Villa fan. No great surprise if he has gone back.

ps thought @OwenB87 did very well in the two matches so far

I think we have the better commentator of the two.

Thanks Boycie. I’m hoping to improve considerably, given a proper run at it. 

FWIW the decision was made for me to takeover first team comms before Jack got the gig at Villa, so I’m really pleased for him.

From what I've seen/heard so far, you're doing a cracking job and will only get better with time.

Getting slightly annoyed at paying for Rams TV every month and not getting the games. 2 out of 3 games so far this season have not been available. Maybe it is just how it has fallen but starting to question the value of my monthly subscription

I get your frustration but none of this is down to RamsTV. It's all to do with EFL broadcasting rights but it might be worth hopping on a quick flight if certain games aren't available in your location 😉

Today's game was never going to be shown. No cup games ever are.

As stated below, up till now all league games were available, or at least last season they were as no Spanish channel took Championship games. This year DAZN shows I think Friday games (the Huddersfield game wasn't shown), so a quick flight to Japan at half time was necessary 😉.

Being messed around by this rights nonsense is really frustrating. I live in Japan and last year had access to most games until half way through the season. At this juncture, the EFL had sold the rights to a company in Japan for a number of games. I couldn't watch these games on RamsTV anymore. But the really frustrating thing was that (as far as I could find) the games weren't being televised in Japan either. So nobody in Japan could watch these games because the rights were bought by a company that didn't show the games! Farcical. 

Luckily, Japan is back to being a 'dark market', so I can watch most games on RamsTV this season (or until it changes, if it does).

It would be interesting to know how many RamsTV subscribers there are in each country that could affect subscriber numbers. I would have thought that it's very unlikely that a ram, or any other team's supporter, would take out a subscription with one of these tv companies only to watch their team once or twice a season. If they want to watch Championship games having a couple of your own team's games shown would be an advantage, but not the priority. I can understand the company wanting this condition, but the EFL should be thinking more about the subscribers to what is after all their product in the live screening of all club's games abroad. I know that DCFC opted out, but didn't they have to pay to the EFL to do so even if it was as a percentage per subscriber? We pay to watch the league games, cup games never entered into the equation, yet a successful or big club can be shown live 8 or 10 times and these games are then unavailable to us. When Rooney finally arrives I hate to think how many of our games will be switched! I'm currently paying £12.50 a month for my RamsTV subscription, I would need to pay another 10€ a month for DAZN who don't even show all of the championship games available to them. Yes, it's much cheaper than going to live games, but is a large chunk out of my wages every month (my name is Richard, I'm not using my user name to show off). If the games can't be shown I know it's not down to the club, but once again this is a very poor tv deal for the clubs signed by the EFL. They really are screwing the clubs and particularly their fans.
