Can you please help settle an argument in our house that has taken on titanic proportions, last night my husband announced that it was only a few weeks till Euro 2008 and that there would be loads of football on TV, so I pointed out that we weren't in it this time (we're not are we?) so only the important matches (maybe the final, at a push the semis) would be shown. He went on that it was going to dominate TV for the whole tournament. Now in my opinion this seems extreme, if England ( or Wales, Ireland or Scotland ) are not in it who will watch?? Surely there will only be a few die hard football fans interested. I can see that some will want to watch but would the more minor channels not be more appropriate? Will the ratings and therefore the revenue not drop?
Well he says loads will watch and I say I really can't see it. So what do you all think?
Is anyone here planning on watching?
