Yorkshire Television controversy

The broadcast of this League Cup final caused controversy in the Yorkshiremarker region, as instead of showing the post-match celebrations (as London Weekend Television did), Yorkshire Television decided to cut the broadcast short in order to show a programme titled War of the Monster Trucks. Sheffieldersmarker often cite this event as a demonstration of the station's bias towards West Yorkshire, Leedsmarker and above all Leeds United. The incident inspired the name of the Sheffield Wednesday fanzine War of the Monster Trucks.
