I'll never forgive RTE over Ali

Sir -- As a fellow inmate of 'single-channel land' along with Declan Lynch, I must agree completely with him about memories of RTE.

Now that he mentions it, I even vaguely remember clocks ticking way past the advertised starting time, although I do not remember sport specifically in that context.

But I would presume that Declan would agree with me that RTE's single greatest sporting disaster was its monstrous failure to show Ali vs Foreman live -- the 'Rumble in the Jungle' in 1974.
