Having been a welcome user of the live updates service provided by Jono and The Cats Whiskers it was certainly a shame to hear he might not be continuing and alarming to find out about the abusive comments directed to his team over the season. We all know you can't please everyone all the time but there's little room for detractors when you're offering a valuable, yet free, service to people all over the world.
We were honoured that Jono gave up some of his valuable beer drinking time on the morning of the play off finals to chat with us.
FREEQ: Everyone wants to know. Live updates for next season?
JONO: I’m not doing them. There will probably be live updates but someone else will do them. Nobody’s contacted me yet, but I’ve had enough.
FREEQ: It must take away a lot of enjoyment of the games?
JONO: It has yea. I did the game against Sheffield where I didn’t do it this season and that brought it home how much of the games I was missing so I decided to knock it on the head, so I can get my enjoyment back more than anything. I have enjoyed doing it and it has been great but it’s time to stop.
FREEQ: And no-one’s contacted you from the club to carry it on?
JONO: No they haven’t. What I would really love to do is audio commentary like at Sheffield because then you can watch the game and comment on it, you don’t miss anything. If the club would allow me to do that I’d love to speak to them about it.
FREEQ: If Nottingham were to get past Hull who would you prefer in the final?
JONO: I think I’d prefer Cardiff in the final, simply because Belfast are such a good side and so packed full of talent. No disrespect to Cardiff but I think Belfast would pose a bigger threat.
FREEQ: You’ll be back next year and renewing your season ticket enjoying games without the distraction of live updates?
JONO: Yea I will. I’m renewing. The Cats Whiskers site will still continue and I’ll still be doing articles on that. What I pledge to do each weekend I will do a page and say where updates will be where they can updates on twitter or where there is audio or commentary so people can still come to The Cats Whiskers website and there will be a link to whatever coverage is available.
