Re: Sydney to Hobart 2012

Sadly the Channel 7 coverage of the race is nothing short of pathetic. An embarassment to be frank. It largely turns into a two hour infommercial for fuching Bob Oatley.

The finish is just as bad. Last year 7 gave more coverage to WoXi coming second than it did to Loyal. Why you might ask ? Surely nothing to do with amount of advertising space Oatley wines take out ? Or is that me being just a touch cynical ?

Aresholes the lot of them.
