I'm surprised NBC is trying again. Thought they were getting out of those NBCSN sports. Gave up the NHL after all, and the network itself will be gone soon.Posted on the right thread this time…
NBC confirmed that they submitted a bid for the Premier League rights. The chairman of NBC Sports thinks it will be wrapped up in 1 or 2 weeks. Bids were due on Monday and I’ve only seen that NBC and ESPN confirmed that they had placed a bid.
Supposedly they streamlined their other sports rights contracts to make sure they could keep the Premiership. It IS something that they actually do well.I'm surprised NBC is trying again.

Yeah I saw that but wasn't sure where to report it. At least Reading can recover. Not sure how Derby does, which is pretty awful.Not Premier League related but in the Championship, Reading has been docked 6 points for financial improprieties with another 6 points deferred until next season as long as they follow a EFL spending plan. That leaves them 19th in the table, 4 points above relegation. Derby had been docked 21 points and sit DFL in the table at -3 points.
Derby is doomed, no team can survive a 21 point deduction. Wigan almost survived a 12 point deduction a few years ago but came up 1 point short.Yeah I saw that but wasn't sure where to report it. At least Reading can recover. Not sure how Derby does, which is pretty awful.
Ogbonna's injury looked bad in the moment. Too bad, as he'd been a stalwart for them in the back. Severe test of their depth.West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna is out for the season with an ACL injury suffered against Liverpool.
Kevin De Bruyne tested positive for Covid and is isolating in Belgium. He’ll miss this weekend against Everton and next week’s UCL match against PSG. City could also be without Jack Grealish while Ferran Torres fractured his foot playing for Spain.
