Jonesy

Does anyone know what Sarah Jones role is going to be on Fox Footy?

She hasn't appeared on After The Bounce to date, she was a regular last season.

She hasn't been sitting at the news desk on FSN - Julian de Stoop seems to be covering most of the Melbourne stuff.

Have seen her very briefly at press conferences and as a roving reporter.

Thought the 24 hour dedicated channel would provide viewers with more of Jonesy, but somehow has resulted in less.....?

Anyone got any info?

Re: Jonesy

I think I remember her being in a Fox Footy promo ad. I enjoy looking at her so the more of Jonesy the better.

Re: Questions that don't warrant a thread thread

Is anyone else having issues with the 'AFL match replay center' on the website? It doesn't recognise that i'm in Australia. It has been like this for a week now.

All games are live except for the Saturday arvo, which starts at 3pm so it runs into the news. Is this right?

Only live on Foxtel, the Sat Arvo games on 7 will always be on a 90min delay to run into the 6PM news.

7 Never said that all games were live just the night games.

Re: Questions that don't warrant a thread thread

Whose idea was it for coaches and players to front the post game pressser. Not a fan, much rather it just be the coach.

Fox Footy "The Matrix" thing

Did anyone see that pathetic special effect they were trying to spruke over last weekend? The slow mo thing that gives an almost 3D view of the player by panning around him.

I nearly puked when they started saying it was just like the movie "The Matrix"

Made themselves look very lame for something that they will rarely use for real (as they need 30 cameras apparently to get the effect) and doesn't look that good or add anything special anyway.

what a bunch of wankers :D

When will they learn that most footy viewers don't want all that bells & whistles stuff and usually it just ends up taking up time over the actual game (just look at how channel 7 are overdoing this crap). Just give us the game the way it has always been.

Re: Fox Footy "The Matrix" thing

I see that the scores on the ground have also been thankfully abandoned, and yet they're not using the one that actually would have been neat - a statistical representation of how likely a given player is to kick a set shot from that spot, based on I assume that player's entire past career.

Stay tuned - it'll be back.

The moving of my thread to here just underscores why I quit being a mod. Well done mods you live up to your reps beautifully.

You think your crappy little post about Fox Footy's graphics needs a thread for itself?

The AFL, and it is a farce. Sewell has rightly questioned the wisdom of it.

The press just plain aren't interested in what a player's insight into a given game is when the coach is there. No one is.

Actually pretty neutral

Anybody see/know how many "goalpost cams" there are at the MCG? I'm thinking 2 or 3 at each end at different angles...
And they seem a lot more slimline than the one they used the other year in the Hall of Fame Vic vs All-Stars game.
As a goal umpire, loving watching these angles, gotta say!

What's the go with the TV schedule for next year? I can't find what is fox and what is FTA anywhere. Are they doing a type of flex schedule as they go or am I blind?
