Bradford City produced their second shock of the FA Cup this season when they beat Sunderland 2-0 at Valley Parade yesterday.
Unfortunately, only the 24,000 inside the stadium got to see it live.
The BBC drew considerable criticism on Sunday for deciding to air Aston Villa's win over Leicester instead of Phil Parkinson's side, who had beaten Jose Mourinho's Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the previous round.
Both teams were dreadful at Villa Park in the first-half, before a Tim Sherwood team-talk inspired the home side to victory in the second period.
Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker briefly explained why Bradford had not been picked on Twitter, but today Mark Cole, BBC Sport's football editor, went one further.
"The hardest thing is that both the BBC and BT have to make our selections before the outcome of replays," wrote Cole in a blog on the BBC website.
Bradford's recent list of scalps
Bradford's recent list of scalps
1/5 Capital One Cup fourth round - Wigan 0 Bradford 0 (Bradford win 4-2 on penalties), October 2012
The Bantams' challenge started to gather speed when they shocked Premier League opponents Wigan at the DW Stadium. The Latics created a host of opportunities but could not make a breakthrough during the 90 minutes or in extra-time. Shaun Maloney then blazed his penalty over and Jordi Gomez saw his saved as the visitors advanced to the last eight.
2/5 Capital One Cup quarter-final - Bradford 1 Arsenal 1 (Bradford win 3-2 on penalties), December 2012
Bradford made everyone sit up and take notice after humbling Arsenal at Valley Parade. While they were grateful once more for penalties, Phil Parkinson's side outplayed the Gunners for much of the encounter to reach a first ever semi-final. The spot-kick specialists won their ninth successive penalty shoot-out after Thomas Vermaelen struck the post. The Arsenal skipper had earlier appeared to rescue his side with a header three minutes from normal time to equalise Garry Thompson's first-half volley.
3/5 Capital One Cup semi-final, first leg - Bradford 3 Aston Villa 1, January 2013
Bradford were firm underdogs again but claimed a hat-trick of wins against Premier League opposition. Nahki Wells opened the scoring in the 19th minute and defender Rory McArdle headed home Gary Jones' cross in the 77th minute. Villa, who spurned a hatful of chances in either half, grabbed a crucial late lifeline through Andreas Weimann before Carl McHugh restored the home side's two-goal advantage with another header two minutes from the end. Although Parkinson's men lost the second leg 2-1, they won 4-3 on aggregate to book a Wembley final against Swansea, which they lost 5-0.
4/5 FA Cup fourth round - Chelsea 2 Bradford 4, January 2015
Bradford brilliantly responded from two goals down to win 4-2 at Chelsea and dump the Barclays Premier League leaders out of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge. League One City, who were 2-0 down to goals from Gary Cahill and Ramires after 38 minutes, claimed the biggest scalp of their recent giant-killing exploits with goals from Chelsea reject Filipe Morais, Jon Stead, Andy Halliday and substitute Mark Yeates to inflict the Blues' first home loss this season and spark jubilant celebrations from Parkinson's visitors.
5/5 FA Cup fifth round - Bradford 2 Sunderland 0, February 2015
The Bantams' reward for their victory in west London was a home tie against Sunderland and they were right to have fancied their chances against Gus Poyet's inconsistent Black Cats. They got off to a perfect start as John O'Shea deflected Billy Clarke's third-minute effort into his own goal and a cool 61st-minute finish from Jon Stead sent City into the quarter-finals for the first time in 39 years.
"That's the only reason why Phil Parkinson's side didn't get a live match this time round. We had to weigh up the options and given Sunderland's recent form, thought it was a realistic possibility of the match being League One against a Championship side.
"In this case it wouldn't have been much of a shock whatever the result and the winners would be guaranteed a live Quarter-Final, as Reading have done by progressing at Derby.
"If Bradford definitely had a home tie against Premier League opposition we certainly would have chosen to have the match live on BBC One. That has been a big part of our policy so far, showing AFC Wimbledon, Cambridge, Bristol City and tonight Preston, all looking to overcome opposition from the top flight.
"As the game unfolded yesterday at Valley Parade, we shared the frustration of fans and would have loved to have been broadcasting the match live. It's everything the FA Cup and our new comprehensive coverage is about. We are speaking to the FA about whether we can change this in the future, but understand it's tricky for them."
Cole added that it's been great for those without subscription sports channels to see Alexis Sanchez, Angel Di Maria and other international stars, while the game was the first match and shown extensively on Match of the Day.
He added: "Despite some of the criticism coming out of Bradford, a lot of thought goes into the matches we pick, and I hope the selections outlined above show we are particularly keen to showcase clubs outside the Premier League....
"When we sit down tomorrow morning to pick our two matches for the Quarter-Final we will take all I've discussed into consideration, but the good news is that all four matches will be live on TV. That means Bradford's incredible heroics over the last five rounds have guaranteed them a money-spinning Quarter-Final game and boy do Bantams fans deserve it!"
What were we watching instead?
Had the BBC selected the game it would have gone into the 12.15 - 2.30pm slot that saw Aston Villa beat Leicester.
With the game getting a later 2.30pm kick-off, BBC One had switched to its Six Nations coverage of Scotland vs Wales at Murrayfield.
Escape to the Country, Open All Hours, To the Manor Born and Hi-de-Hi! were shown on BBC Two from 2.30 - 4.45pm.Reuse content
