The Football World Cup used to be the most exciting sporting event on earth. Until Sony SIX took over the broadcasting rights!
Have you ever wondered why football in India is so messed up? Tune into Sony Six and check out Café Rio. The Indian coverage of the World Cup will tell you everything that is wrong with football in India!
What does Gaurav Kapur or Nikhil Chinapa have to do with football? This is the World Cup not MTV! Come to think of it, what does John Abraham have to do with football (except his movie Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal?)
So why are these guys messing with us? This is like the IPL Extraaa Innings… only this is worse. Here is what the people have to say!
We all waited for the World Cup for this?
Holy Crap. So World Cup coverage starts on Sony Six and Gaurav Chopra opens with Mikel Silvestre of all people. Way to turn people off.— Mr. Miyagi (@MainBhiPhenku) June 12, 2014
Nobody is happy with Sony Six and their show!
The IPLization of FIFA #WorldCup ... right now on Sony Six.— Chetan Narula (@chetannarula) June 12, 2014
Wondering what’s the worst part about the World Cup?
So this is why the show is so bad!
That once-in-four-years feeling is dead!
You wait for 4 years for the world cup and then you see some dumb chick and John Abraham talk football and the feeling dies. #CafeRio— Bhavesh (@Bhavesh_038) June 12, 2014
But you have to admit they do give useful information!
Great footballing knowledge being disseminated on Sony Six.... Like How much Abhishek Bachchan loves football & what he tweets #FifaWorldCup— N.Sudarshan (@sudunarayan) June 12, 2014
India football captain Sunil Chhetri also gets the treatment!
Now you know why India are 154th in FIFA rankings!
Poor Peter Crouch!
It just keeps getting worse!
Why can’t they just hire real football experts?
And wait how is Nikhil Chinappa any better. What is wrong with Sony Six!— Coup de Maître (@Decloned_iTaz) June 14, 2014
How will they know the footballers? They don’t even know each other!
Its Silvestre not Silvester you stupid Gaurav Kapur. At least get the names of your 'pundits' right. Basic expectation, that mate. @SonySIX— Akshay Mhaskar (@akshay281) June 15, 2014
What’s wrong with John Abraham?
The news we all wish comes true!
It also inspired a lot of memes.
Just to compare... Here is the Football World Cup panel for BBC's coverage!
And almost fittingly, some guy created a petition to get rid of Gaurav Kapur.
It's time to save football!
