Angry Cycling Fan Disappointed - Giro d 'Italia



Dear Sirs,
I am a very disgruntled MNet DSTV viewer. the great Lance Armstrong has made a comeback to cycling and is racing in the Giro Da Italia ( Only the Tour De France is bigger in cycling stage races) His first entry in this race.
However MNET have chosen not to screen this event due to lack of sponsorship for the event. What nonsense when every cyclist in South Africa is desperate to watch a cycling hero , and iconic cancer survivor. If you take the 35 000 people who enter our big one the Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour and assume that they have Dstv @ R550 per month it amounts to R231 000 000 per annum. Don't you think that is enough for MNet!
Greed is a horrible thing Guys . They have just had a great windfall with the DLF IPL and still want more profit .
Shame on MNet!
