So do the tv stations showing sport
they do

They haven't got much creditability left. Running ads for gambling and continually talking about it, isn't doing them any favours
then talking about mental health, addictions and beyond blue etc. it kinda sells itself. promote gambling, leads to addictions, mental illnesses, promote beyond blue. everyones a winner! *












* in extreme circumstances

I feel like you can't promote gambling and then promote mental health awareness.

It's one of the major causes of mental health issues. Just really a big contradiction.

One thing I don't like is the amount of gambling advertisements. I get that it's all centred around sport being a sports station. I just find it a poor way to advertise. Hutchie and his show on Saturdays are basically a morning of gambling advertisements.
Yes, Hutcho-Blob the great virtue-signaller, who likes to portray an image of being awesome, charitable and socially empathetic, while at the same making most of his money from gambling ads. Fa'rkin hypocritical. It shits me
I'd be happy to be corrected if I'm wrong. ?:D

100% when they do the charity bets for their chosen charities it's always sponsored by a betting company. Now whilst he is donating money, that's fine, fantastic. But literally at the exact same time he is making money from advertising said Betting company. If he was half serious about himself he'd donate the money paid for that specific sponsor during that segment.

SEN probably doesn't exist without betting advertising dollars, as much as I detest betting advertising.

It's so engrained in our sporting industries whether online, on tv, on the radio or at the ground, that kids are set up from a young age to have it normalised and think that one does not go without the other.

First time I've listened live to SEN live [via the stream] in probably 18 months. Half way through Lachie Neale's Brownlow Q&A with Hamish, "we need to go to a break".

Startling

Congrats SEN - easily the worst radio coverage of a game that has ever been broadcast.

Gerard should quit in disgust...truly appalling with constant technical stuffups all night, including cutting to ad breaks during the game.
Seems poor given they were in the Melbourne studio. I think 3AW sent a team to Brisbane. I think SEN could of done that. Obviously not Gerard but a few of the other callers.

Were they about 10 minutes behind the count at one stage? Maybe it was my phone/app that was stuck at an earlier point.

Bedford's favourite, Sam Hargraves, was doing the shift. Was a real struggle for him juggling the ads, the crosses to Ch.7, reading the wrong vote tallies off his computer screen.

Monday morning overnight crowd starts at midnight with a replay of Parkin and Plough previewing the 2 preliminary finals played last Fri & Sat night

I wonder if Port and Bris are tuning in might get some tips on how to beat Rich & Gee this time

Then it suddenly stops. is interrupted by the new automatic SEN program ad interrupter machine with 15 adds played , sheesh

It was beyond poor - they've had all year to perfect whatever issues might crop up.

For the broadcast to drop out at 7pm and miss 20 minutes of pre-game, to cut to ad breaks 5 minutes INTO THE GAME, to take ads after a goal, to have the commentary team drop out constantly - it's unforgiveable.

I only put up with it out of a morbid curiosity to see how bad it could get and it went far beyond anything I'd experienced in listening to footy on the radio in 45 years.

Looking forward to Gerard putting his own technical crew to 'the means test' or at least acknowledge the elephant in the room, or should I say Fat-Man.

The question remains - will The Fat-Man donate his donut money this week to guarantee a smooth, technical-free Saturday?

It was terrible and sadly i had to change to AW.
King called in again before , obviously not getting the air time on FF at the moment , so his ego needs more.

Yeah, I changed to AW during pre-game, but I just loath the muppets they had to call the game and went back.

Just goes to show the dismal state we're in when just finding a decent call of the game is near-on impossible.
