V’landys has been nothing short of outstanding. Went out of his way to achieve something that was extremely difficult and has done it whilst the AFL did nothing and is running scared knowing that Rugby League will be the only sport on Victorian TV. They are scared of Rugby League exposure in Victoria.

You can definitely feel here the AFL working behind the scenes to put something in place quickly, with an announcement due next week. Now the NRL are full steam ahead, they'd be keen to shorten the gap between the NRL and AFL start dates. But in terms of Victorian eyes, it will really depend on the amount of FTA coverage 9 puts out to maximize audience capture when NRL has that free air from other competitions.

Like always it will be on GEM starting at 7.30pm and finishing immediately after the final siren! Whilst the main channel will have another repeat of a 20 year old TV show.

Would be a silly option noting everyone's thirst for some sport at the moment. Simply has to go on the main channel, especially for those weeks when there is no direct competition. It's like they don't want the exposure down here when they do that.
