Sky Sports Letters Crisis

Last season on Sky Sports, there always used to be three letters representing any team that was on the telly in the top score box, for example something like AST 1 - POR 2. This was pretty good, as it was easy to tell at a glance what teams are playing. However, this season, it's been rationed down to two. The problem with this is many teams have the same initials. eg.
* BC could be Birmingham City or Bristol City; or
* SU Could be Scunthorpe, Sunderland, or even Southampton.

Often, now, I sit there for five minutes trying to figure out what teams are playing if I'm just flicking or whatever. This is highly irritating. Sky: bring back the extra letter. It was so much easier that way.
