Putting my future cap on I wonder after winning the flag this season how may free to air games we will get in Melbourne next season and how many Friday night games..........always a good way to get the kids following us when they see how fab we are and such great colors as well.

IIRC even while 3peating and in 2004 we didn't get many Friday night games... maybe none.

Yep. Pretty sure our only one was in 2003 where we lost to Collingwood in the qualifying final on the saturday then played a semi final against the crows at the gabba on the friday night.

That was the one where Voss came off his bike around quarter time when it wasn't even clear he was going to play, and we ended up flogging them, right? I was there for that one. Good night. :D

but we were the saturday night specialists at the time on channel 10.
I remember that - no live FTA, so staying up past midnight to watch the game. Not to mention having the result spoiled by SportsCentre "newsflashes" just before the coverage started.

Plenty of complaints about Quartermain (dull), and some about Lane (felt he was too pro-Carlton). In retrospect though...
Maybe it's just a grass is greener scenario but if I had the choice today I'd take dull, Carlton bias or suggestions to run through the ruck over what we've got. Winning probably took the focus but for the most part I didn't even notice the commentary back then which is ideally how it should be imo.

Did people spend as much time on the umpiring back then as well or is that also part of the 'evolution'?
Not that I recall, but it was a lot easier to adjudicate when the average contest was only a couple of players and often they were traipsing through a paddock's worth of space as opposed to 8 to 20 players gathered around a ball.

I was 13-22 during the Channel 10 broadcast era so it is going to always be my favourite I think. Its probably just nostalgia but I genuinely think the commentary was broadly far better (though Michael Christian was dreadful). But even with the flaws of that group the absence of BT is a pretty big plus.

Holy Grail easily the best intro song for the coverage too.

There's an 11-minute discussion of the Lions and some fascinating Champion Data stats in the latest RSN By The Numbers podcast. Highly recommended listening from 7:00 in.

We had a chat to the former Brisbane Lions ruck and 2003 Premiership Player Jamie Charman. Have a listen to this hilarious interview as we discuss the highs and lows of Charmo's career, the famous Day Spa and some hilarious pranks/gags Charmo experienced throughout his playing days.

Have a listen!
