Will the Not Nots do a Sarries and Pests and include planning consent prohibiting Friday/Sunday games ensuring the burden falls on the usual suspects.

If not all slots for TV are provided then that should mean a lower payment for those clubs - what chance of that being imposed by the Usual Suspects...?

I can't see Brentford FC not having Friday night available for televised games so Irish shouldn't either.

I doubt the Ricoh consent excludes Friday night. I'd heard, second hand, a Simon Cohen quote that BT didn't want to televise a game in a virtually empty Ricoh so they don't put ever put the Franchise in a Friday night slot. Doesn't seem to worry them with Sale though.
