But shouldn't the internet have some impact on that? TV isn't the only way to stay in touch with the sport now, you can buy online packages (or watch pirated streams) and keep current with virtually every club in any league with a half-respectable broadcast footprint. If anything it's often more convenient to do it that way since it allows greater flexibility in watching delayed replays of games for those who don't want to get up at 7 in the morning every saturday to watch a game.
