Bite Me ;)

We pay for all that exclusiveness. Actually, what annoys me more is when Foxtel isn't allowed to show something live, because it is on the frickin' commercial channels.

It's on fiveaa from 1pm Sunday. I wish it was on tv but at the end of the day it isn't a big deal. If they did it to the real matches i would care more but at the moment it is ok. But then again this is probably just the beginning! :(:(

Yep and i hope its on ABC local radio we dont get fiveaa in Port lincoln.Its safe until 2011 if they do do that there will be alot of controversy,it would be commercial suicide for the AFL to do so especially in WA and SA.Also demetriou has made a commitment to have all SA and WA main season matches on FTA.Also pay-tv users miss out on nothing, because they can switch over to FTA and watch the football (due to them having a dish they get better reception too), but if its the reverse millions of fans miss out and that is wrong.Also with nine getting the bulk of the games, many country fans miss out on NAB cup games because we dont have channel nine. :(

Yours truly

Sad fact of life - if Fox weren't paying the huge amounts of money they pay for the rights to broadcast those football games, there would be a hell of a lot less football to watch.

We only subscribed in the first place because it was a year when the Ashes games were not going to be broadcast in full on FTA.
