i looked at a preview and it was on 774 in melbourne
radio has some good ones too like tim lane adam white tony lenoard nathan brown the 6pr giys and jb
might ask in the 2000s was it awlays commons for all melbourne stations to cover the same game? is that why now they have a and b package
question in 2000 when there were sunday night game did seven show the sunday night movie or the the game?
Is he the Alastair Nicholson who played at Melbourne in the early 200"s?Oh yeah, ABC 774 must have been like Seven and broadcast this game straight after the earlier game.
Yeah exactly, Sandy Roberts, Peter Donegan and Rexy on Crocmedia's AFL Live, and Matt Granland on SEN is a pretty good commentator as well.
I personally highly rate Alister Nicholson who commentates for ABC Radio and is based in Brisbane. I first watched him on TV when he was a sports presenter on WIN Local News here in Tassie. He went over to the ABC afterwards to be a journalist, commentate Devils home games in the VFL, and commentate and host the ABC's TSL football coverage in 2009 and 2010 before moving to the sunshine state. I think he should be the sort of commentator that Seven should go after to regain lost ground in their commentary team. He'd be 100 times better than the Hamish and Basil show would ever hope to be.
Peter Landy did his last game in commentary in 1999, and it was the qualifying final between the Kangaroos and the Power.
Well I'm not 100% sure on the time that the Dockers-Swans match was 10:10pm AEST because the AFL Tables website has not been entirely accurate with their match times at least for early 90's matches because the times published on the website didn't closely match up with the times published in the newspaper previews and in the TV guides of the time. In those, the actual time of a match would be two hours earlier for example than the AFL Tables published version for WA matches, most likely because of the confusion with the differing time zones between the east and the west, e.g. a game was published to be played at 4:50pm AWST when it was actually 4:50pm AEST, which is what happened with the Eagles-Bombers game from earlier in the year you'll see below. Anyway, I don't doubt at the moment that the Dockers-Swans game may well have been played that much later in 1999, but I do need to look into the newspapers on microfilm to confirm the time of that game.
I did manage to get an example of a selected week of telecasts aired in Melbourne through HSV-7 from that season while looking through the Web Archive website. It came from Round 4, and the schedule went something like this:
Demons-Hawks (8:30pm) delayed
AFL Today (5pm) - highlights of Saints-Bulldogs, Magpies-Tigers, and Blues-Dockers
Swans-Kangaroos (7:30pm) live
Lions-Crows (10:30pm) delayed
Power-Cats (2pm) live
Eagles-Bombers (4:50pm) live
Wasn't the St Kilda v Bulldogs Game shown in Full? Because I have seen the Intro for that Game. What is the name of the Archive Website?
The Semi Final 1999 Carlton v West Coast was called by Dennis & KB & also Mick McGuane & Richard Osborne on Boundary. Landy hosted the Replay (I think) of Preliminary Final 1999 Essendon v Carlton (That Game was Magnificent) in a studio & also hosted the GF Marathon in 2001.
i have always thought landy did pbp for that gameYes Peter Landy did indeed host that replay from the studio, in fact there's a clip on YouTube showing him hosting the replay as he's going over the three quarter time score and introducing the last quarter of what was in my view one of the most epic finals footy matches ever, also a couple of clips of him hosting that GF marathon, great times indeed.
