Is England v. Kazakhstan Worth $24.99?

Is Setanta actually charging me twenty-five bucks to watch a World Cup qualifier against a below average team just because it features the 'stars' of the Eee Pee El? Who will pay this amount of money in a depressed economy? Who does Setanta think we are? Twenty five bucks. That's FOUR pints plus tax and tip. That's a pretty good main at an upscale restaurant. You could rent six movies from the local movie store down my street.

That would mean all three Back to the Futures, both Ghostbuster movies, and Das Boot. What a day that would be. About 900 times more drama than John Terry bobbling a back pass leading to a fluke Kazakh goal. Goodness.

Ah, but you seriously cannot put a price on a John Terry back pass leading to an own goal! But yeah, its a lot sweeter if it comes free! :P
