After reading Bantu Holomisa's article titled "SABC arrogance cost them dearly" I feel nothing, but disappointment.
Once again football has taken a back seat. If the SABC can buy the rights for cricket and rugby from SuperSport, why cannot they do the same with soccer. To say DStv has 1,5million viewers is irrelevant.
The reason the SABC lost the rights is because they assumed that as the public broadcaster they would not lose.
As for Butana Khompela, he must do his research before making comments and summoning people to face the sports portfolio committee in parliament.
The PSL is a company and it has to make a profit and uplift the standard of soccer. This whole deal is not about selfishness and greed.
It's about the clubs and the players.
Teams will get more allowances and players decent salaries. This is a welcome development because not all clubs have sponsors.
We have fought very hard for democracy, and we cannot have politicians interfere with the running of private companies. With politicians interference, I foresee a situation in which clubs will be told to enforce the quota systems used on national teams.
