    It may be all well and good, but we could seriously get so much more for that money. Think the 7 Olympic app (with problems obviously ironed out).
    Now think if the current pay tv set up and the online streaming set up went head to head. Who would win? We would. Prices go down, products improve, the consumer wins.

    It will be in HD but that's not the issue.

    The issue is a club like Melbourne gets limited prime time exposure as it is. One of the few times we do we are shunted off to a secondary channel. This impacts ratings which in turn impacts sponsorship, membership etc and all that goes along with it.

    If I were Glenn Bartlett or Peter Jackson I'd be asking some questions of Simon Lethlean and/or Gil.

    "Reality" shows, ffs. When Big Brother first started around 2000 I thought "well this reality shit will probably last a couple of years, buckle in" almost 20 years later people are still watching that rubbish. Every summer during the Australian Open I get a glimpse of what people without Foxtel/Netflix/Torrents actually watch on TV when they play those idiotic promos. Anyone who watches that shit is bad and should feel bad.

    If I even knew someone who watches a cooking show on TV I'd be embarrassed, much less watch it myself.

    It's for emasculated pussywhipped dorky men and fatso soccer mums.

    Is it just me or are Foxtel users/owners/whatever you would call it really entitled and arrogant? Like we get it you're not smart enough to stream stuff

    It's an exposure thing. Yeah, all of us on BF know it's an extra button. But Melbourne are struggling for sponsors as is - anyone seen the back of our jumper this year? Every little bit helps, and when a blockbuster that we've put together is getting shunted for My ******* Kitchen Rules it's infuriating. And I don't give a shit that it's the final.

    Ch 7 is a shitstain of a TV network. They will stop at nothing to lower the bar of the lowest common denominator.

    the AFL should be on one specific digital channel in all markets.... create a new digital channel called 7sport and have it on there.... it can be like ONE used to be several years back

    Trumped by a bubble & squeak show.

    Does this jeopardise Richmond's big 4 status?

    Melbourne fans complaining about getting mediocre timeslots and crappy exposure? Guess that's the end result of being deplorable for 10 years. Perform well this year and you'll get better timeslots and match coverage

    Unless of course, you're Carlton getting flogged every 2nd Friday night!
