In other words, the big complaint here seems to be predictability, but it's entirely predictable (the complainers have repeated the practicability of it over and over again in this thread).  Sports events air on the weekend, therefore the chances of your weekend shows being bumped are good, so deal with it accordingly.

Add in a user job that automatically goes through and adds in cuts at 
the originally scheduled start and end times.  Mythfrontend always obeys 
cut points, as opposed to commercial detection which is optional.  If 
the cut points are wrong, due to an over-run sports event, go into edit 
mode and find the correct placement.  If you're concerned about all that 
extra used space, have your user job schedule a lossless transcode to 
apply those cuts after a week or so.
