It's a PRE-SEASON MATCH! I just can't get worked up about missing a match that means nothing (Fremantle game is also on Fox Footy) :|

I hate it when sporting events I want to watch are on FTA cause I know they'll butcher it.

Gotta lotta love for Foxtel. (and SBS).

It is really really crappy, the game is over in reality at about 5 to 10 CST!.They shouldent start the game at 8:30 sure it might piss off people by starting later,but the football rates better than all the shows put on before. :D :dance: They should do what they do on ten, put it on live or at very least 10-30 minutes delayed NOT 1-2 hours delayed (even more if its in WA).Oh well i guess we can listen to the ABC radio coverage at least that is live. :) Anyhoo i will be avoiding the friday night football coverage like the plague. :x

Yours truly

Yeah, on Friday night I logged on to the ninemsn page and accidently spoiled the result. So the Channel 9 website is posting the result on it's homepage, before they screen the footy! I was so annoyed!

The 3 hour delay for WA viewers is certainly bogus. I personally think live coverage should be mandatory for viewers outside the home city, given that it is the supposed "Match of the Week", but we can't have that because Nine wants to hold it off for 3 hours for prime time ratings where the same lame fans will continue to watch it and thus the situation will always continue :roll:
