Being in WA I was hoping that we would be getting a decent coverage of the GF this year now that they have been showing games live on GEM, but have looked and as usual telecast starts 1/2 hour before kickoff. Also noted that it is the same for Melbourne, even with their team in it. By comparison the AFL is on in Sydney 9AM-6PM Saturday. I suppose the main reason I'm a bit annoyed this year is because I'm a Tigers fan and we are in the Toyota Cup GF, and any sort of success for us this year is worth seeing. I cant understand why they dont put the early coverage on GEM and put the Main game on 9 after the 1/2 hour break.
