Default did I miss something - sbs tour coverage?

Did I miss something? Praises for SBS with the live coverage of the
TdF, but what is it with the break in coverage to show the bloody
cricket? Isnt there enough on the TV? Cycling fans stay up late to see
the daily coverage, not the cricket. SBS - What the? Its only only on
for less than four weeks of the year, not all summer.

That's it. I'm off to bed. I'm not staying up to watch sodding
cricket, I'll catch the highlights tomorrow.

They advertised they the tour coverage tonight was from 11.10 to 12.30.
So far I reckon I might have been lucky to see about 30mins, and theres
only 15 mins left till the end of scheduled broadcast. Very ****ed.
At least the others (7,9 and 10 ) have broken their schedules for
something worth reporting. ( Sad news, as it may be)

I was watching with boys who love cricket. It was a disturbing
experience for me. They would be all excited, Le Tour! and then Oh NO!
It's Gone! and then Yay! The Test! and then Oh NO! It's Gone! etc... I
don't understand boys. I prefer bikes.
