I went to the CNE today to check on my SMART card and was told by the Egyptians that there an advertisement was put up in Al Haram today that the match will not be telecasted. There were hundreds of Egyptians outside the shop and the police were called in. Interesting, wonder if CNE is closing down as we could not receive ESPN for more than a week and my husband is getting agitated since it is NFL play off time.

The Africa Cup of Nations is being shown on Al Jazeera Sport +9 and +10. However, most packages only have AJS +1 to +8. To get the other two channels cost over 400 LE for that month, which is pretty tough for most Egyptians.

There has been a compromise though. AJS/ART offered to broadcast the Egypt matches (10 of them) for something like 1M (not sure if that was USD or LE) a match with no right of repeat. After the Egyptian government threatened to investigate for advertising the tournament would be on ART, it was decided that both Tunisia and Egypt would have their matches on the free Al Jazeera Sports 2. So we get those but not the rest of the cup, so

Egypt/Tunisia = Al Jazeera Sport 2 (free to air)

I partly work reviewing football and sci-fi programmes, so it's partly that. But mainly it's from living in one of the desert towns a few years ago, where there wasn't that much to do.

I just make pennies writing a blog - I make most of my money from wildlife biology. There are occasional ads for freelance writers such as at FREELANCE WRITING JOBS and numerous others. I've occasionally done this but I prefer writing whenever I want to, rather than to order. Although to get one, really you need some samples, so you would probably need to do some free reports at first.

I don't get Al Jazeera Sport +9 and +10, so I only get to follow the Egyptian matches. Most of my football writing is about Scottish football. AJS has the rights to show it, so I managed to follow that, plus highlight programmes, mags, newspapers etc. I'd like to do more Egypt writing but it's too difficult with such a lack of English websites to gain an idea of players and styles. I even struggle to find a league table in English.

Maybe there's an opening there for you?

It's good to follow Egypt though as, unlike Scotland, they actually win occasionally :D I'm so surprised the likes of Al Hadry left it so late to play abroad. Mind you, the likes of Mido, Ghaly and Zaki haven't done their compatriots much favours with their attitude abroad.
