A French Quarter publican has admitted fault today after choosing to pay the thousand or so dollars to broadcast a fight between two old men over some explosive One Day International cricket.
Andre Spears, from the Trombone Rouillé Inn on Rue de Branlette told this masthead that it was an error of judgement.
“The fight between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jnr was just sad,” he said.
“It was depressing. They’re so old. They shouldn’t be fighting and we should be encouraging them,”
“With the benefit of hindsight, I should’ve just had the cricket on yesterday and the punters would’ve probably liked that more. By the end of the fight, people were asking me to turn it over as Smudge and Big Labu were on a heater,”
“That bloke from YouTube had a good fight, though. A lot of people liked that fight. But was it worth a grand? Probably.”
More to come.
