In an increasingly complicated world of football delighted the competition, actors and audience. The K. o. principle - and in some way also to TV presenters such as Gerhard Delling.comment by Philipp Selldorf
Some of the fee payers could not believe his luck, when he learned of the plans of the ARD for the Broadcasts of the games in the DFB-Cup: Although the FC Bayern in the quarter-finals, should not be sent to the game, the Munich-based live. Already before the kick-off of the four games was the first, as Rolf Töpperwien would say: fist-thick Cup sensation perfectly. Almost everywhere in the country, it was the TV people are grateful. So often, the ARD had corrupted their viewers the Cup-evening for the Bayern Games, the outcome of which everyone knew before. You should be now come to your senses?
In truth, it was not the turning point to a better world, but a particularly sad case: By decided, exceptionally, to the Bavaria-rate, managed the people from the ARD to miss the Cup game of the year. You have done the Right thing, but it was still wrong.
A sense of longtime familiarity
on the Other hand, you do not know it: Had the Munich defender Niklas Süle in the 13. Minute, maybe a little fixer acted if he had known that he defended for Primetime? It would have given the red card and at the end of this fabulous 5:4 maybe never, if Gerhard Delling stood at the edge of the field and its intricate sets up would say? Would have been the heidenheimer then perhaps less courageous?
Such considerations belong to the realm of the Uncertain, but what is, is the following: The Cup is a fine thing. As long is it not, that the better-placed League clubs were of the opinion that this competition is only had to apply a minor thing and basically annoying, because you combine his time with the clearance of the Province.
This way of Thinking is pleasing given way way of of better understanding. In an increasingly complicated world of football, the DFB delighted Cup thanks to its simple principle - a game and the winner progresses - both the actors and the audience, and the Amazing thing is, that the pleasure has to do, in a way, also with screen-people like Delling, the the viewer a sense of longtime familiarity. Delling claimed really have much time for his moderations, but they are part of this delightful ARD-Cup evenings in autumn, Winter and spring, the last in the Other for so long that it can cope with the long moderation. From now on, again with a guaranteed Bayern-participation.
