    I hope they advertise the s**t out of it. So that they will get decent ratings and hopefully show another finals game live.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I want all remaining finals matches live, whether they feature Melbourne or not.

    Now's certainly the time to do this. Melbourne's participation in the AFL finals is weaker than its ever been.

    What was the reasoning behind Nine dropping the 3:00pm Saturday showing of ALL Storm games?
    (like they did previously)

    Was there ever any official explanation?

    Well have you noticed a significant increase in crowd numbers now that their games aren't being shown? I sure as hell haven't.

    And what have the games been replaced with? Crappy re-re-re-re-re-re-run movies!
    Yeah, good one. Ratings bonanza Nine have found for themselves there!

    ok well my lame unresearched theory stands corrected.

    still bullshizzle that they don't show the games on FTA like they used to though.
