    2 great games of footy stuffed by a ridiculously useless mod televising it, missed half of the conversions because they were on an add break, no post game at all for that brilliant first game and as per usual in WA (I'm assuming eastern states are still going) the coverage finished straight after the siren!!

    God I hope someone else gets the rights next time.

    Its hard to practice broadcasting live league when 2/3rds of the games of show are delayed

    To be fair, they pay money so they can play ads. They have to put them somewhere.

    The main gripe is the coverage finishing straight after the siren, I'm assuming it's just us and not the eastern states as we'll?

    I have concerns they are going to do it on GF day just like last year, makes league look amateur. I bet the AFL coverage in Sydney is not effected like this.

    I was out last night and made the mistake of recording the live Nein telecast of the Roosters / Panthers match without the +20. Got cut off at about the 70 minute mark playing it back this morning. I guess there were stoppages, etc. plus probably a delayed kick off but I thought I would have at least got to full time.

    Waited a couple of hours and watched the Fox replay. Much better anyway as Vossy was commentating.

    Yeah, but hey, that 30 min pregame shit is just so fantastic. Nothing better than watching the OCD professor go through his warm up. Thrilling stuff.

    Anyone notice during the finals when they cut to the ads they have Rabbs advertising Harvey Norman's large range of ultra/HD tvs to watch the finals ...surely that ad is a piss take to all us fans that watch 9's coverage

    I wish the AFL coverage ended as soon as the siren went. Would rather watch M.A.S.H reruns anyway.

    The Irony Ray Warren is promoting HD definition televisions for Harvey Norman yet Channel 9 don't even show the Rugby League in HD in Sydney which is their biggest market.
