I continually hear dribble from so called experts that one of the reasons for a dip in crowds is the quality of the channel 9 coverage, let's put this into perspective: - Last night was the pinnacle for our game outside the GF, apart from the on field entertainment that was for the 100th game, we got the usual dribble pre game, some sideline interviews after the game and an interview with the MOM. Telecast lasted approx 3 hours. - tonight the AFL had a Thursday night game, including a pre game show that matched SOO, and after the game they did onfield interviews, followed the players into the rooms for the team song and more interviews and also showed the press conference. I'm not sure what happened in the middle because the game bores the crap out of me. Coverage lasted over 3 1/2 hours (I accept the game goes for longer) How can 9 carry on about their coverage when 7 standard AFL coverage is better than our biggest night of the year. There is nothing worse than watching your team win on a Friday night and as soon as the game finishes they cross to the kickoff for another game, I'd rather get some insight into the behind the scenes and soak up some of the victory, if we lose I can do the same as I do now and turn over. Live game Friday night, live game Saturday night and live game Sunday 3:30 pm with a half hour wrap show leading into the 6 pm news should be the minimum. We had delayed Sunday games in the 80's except all you had to do was avoid he radio to not get the score.
