It's channel seven, they don't back away from horrible cringeworthy sh*t, they embrace it. See: Bruce leering lecherously over the players shoulders, inches from their faces at the Brownlow, every damn yearIt'll be interesting to see what they do during the coverage on this topic.
They must know by now it was a dumb decision and is not generating good PR.
But I'd almost guarantee they've got a 3minute montage clip together already for this about Covid/MCG being empty/ and the heroic task of cutting out this piece of hallowed ground and the journey it went on to get to the Gabba.
Someone in AFL headquarters is flipping a coin right now whether they omit it from the telecast to avoid the backlash, or just double down and show it.
On one hand, to ignore what's been done is to concede they're a pack of absolute overpaid morons.
But to double down and praise it during the telecast will do the same thing.
Rebel and the Gabba have had this in the pipeline for ages, it's advertisement, the AFL aren't paying a cent.Well they said yes to rebel/afl for outside boundary line rip up.so i have no idea what your point is now
I never said the AFL paid. I was saying they would have had to sign off on it. I mean Rebel would probably want the piece of turf to say Rebel on it too and cant just do that.Rebel and the Gabba have had this in the pipeline for ages, it's advertisement, the AFL aren't paying a cent.
The Gabba curators don't need AFL approval to look after their oval.
Rebel aren't hired by the AFL they are hired by the MCGI never said the AFL paid. I was saying they would have had to sign off on it. I mean Rebel would probably want the piece of turf to say Rebel on it too and cant just do that.
Anyway. Hopefully noone does an ACL
Interesting related story to Mr Loaf's tragic performance (from a mate who was involved in GF entertainment back then) was that during sound check/rehearsal on the Friday, after it became obvious Mr Loaf was struggling to produce anything that sounded in tune, he was thereafter offered a full lip-sync production, which despite encouragement from the rest of his band he vehemently refused..!Wisest use of the league's funds and resources since they paid that Meatloaf gastropod $500k.
