    What the actual ****? One of the best games of the round, blockbuster, 73k going.

    And it's only on 7mate with MKR deemed more important.

    For the record, MKR rates around 1.2mil nationally, while last Friday rated 900k...for two winless sides.

    EDIT: This comes after last year where 7 put a 'highlights package' of the ANZAC tribute including cutting off the Last Post.

    Meanwhile, Fox Footy will show it live in HD, ad free. I know where I'll be watching.

    This means you have to push a different number on your remote control. Oh the humanity.

    Yeah, hardly a surprise that everyone in Australia doesn't want to fork out for Foxtel.

    As for putting it on 7mate, that's also hardly a surpise. It's the GF of a high rating show (not sure why it's high rating, the mind boggles). They would either have to move the show or put it on 7mate. Not really such an outlandish decision to shift the footy, which is unlikely to have as many viewers.

    So just so I'm clear about what to be outraged about: it's a big deal that the footy is on channel 73 instead of channel 7?

    Same applies to Friday Night Footy. Unbelievable that you can swtich from 7 SD to Fox HD for the same game of footy.

    Time to get rid of Channel 7

    Ever watch MKR? Know friends? Partners?

    Tell them they are directly responsible for the dumbing down of entertainment.

    I hope netflix dominates the market and buys up the AFL rights in 10 years and saves the AFL

    I hope there is a big promo linking being slaughtered on the beaches in turkey invading other countries to young men living the dream and playing a sport they love for a good income. Both are pretty hard.

    You mean I have to press a 3 AS WELL to see the coverage when I change the channel?

    Why not just dig up the bodies of our fallen soldiers and spit on them? Such disrespect.

    Been in Hoi An too long by the look of it. Channel 7 moved to he Docklands years ago. Top spot Hoi An, your name doesnt happen to be Neville does it? Did a great food tour with him there a while back.
