I'm just curious: yesterday they played some Triple M highlights of Geelong vs Brisbane, I think with Schwass and Nathan Brown. Collingwood vs Richmond was on 105.1, so where was the other game broadcast? Or were they fake highlights? :D
Brisbane MMM gets the Lions

It's very odd that Triple M and 3aw do an extended Sunday pre-game instead of broadcasting the local 1:10pm match when the 3:20pm match is interstate. In fact, it's bizarre, and didn't happen in recent years. Yeah, big issues. :D

Have they done a deal with Hutch-pop to let SEN have the early game on their own?
Also, I gather Triple M rate well on Sundays, so perhaps they don't wanna risk their ratings by changing their routine.

The Rub on triple m rates its arse off and that's exactly why the 3.20 games is always the game chosen

This is from the Herald-Sun in June. It's all I could find after a quick search. I dunno if things have changed, and it unfortunately doesn't give the separate ratings of pre-games and games

---------------------------------------------------------------


RADIO station 3AW is dominating the footy radio airwaves leading all timeslots in the latest ratings survey.

The Friday night team led by ex-Essendon star Matthew Lloyd and Geelong premiership player Jimmy Bartel won the all-important first slot of the weekend with an audience share of 9.5 per cent. The ABC and Triple M tied for second with a 7.5 per cent share. SEN came in fourth with a 3.6 per cent audience share.

3AW’s dominance continued on Saturday afternoons with Lloyd, Bartel and respected caller Tim Lane giving the station a 8.9 per cent audience share. Triple M is second with Brian Taylor, James Brayshaw and Wayne Carey helping the station to a 6.7 per cent share.

The result is much closer on Sundays with the Triple M team featuring Paul Roos on 7.6 per cent, just behind 3AW’s 8.3 per cent.
SEN’s strongest performance came on Saturday nights with a rating of 5.4 per cent. 3AW, lead the slot with a rating of 8.4 per cent.


FRIDAY - 3AW (9.5), ABC (7.5), Triple M (7.5), SEN (3.6).

SATURDAY - (until 5.30pm) - 3AW (8.9), Triple M (6.7), ABC (6.3), SEN (3.5).

SATURDAY NIGHT - 3AW (8.4), ABC (5.9), SEN (5.4), Triple M (4.8).

SUNDAY - 3AW (8.3), Triple M, (7.6), ABC (6), SEN (4.8).

More awesome knowledge of footy history was on display again today by the Triple M Sunday guys today. They were having a quiz, and the contestants were Jay Clarke, Paul Roos and Wayne Carey.

Question: apart from St Kilda, which other team won their first premiership in the 1960s? None of them knew, or even tried to answer. 'Crikey', in my opinion.

Question: "In the 1979 Grand Final, Carlton beat Collingwood by 5 points..." Jay Clarke butted in to anticipate the rest of the question, then tried to answer with it: "I reckon it's about Jezza, because that's when he took the big mark over Jerker Jenkins." Jee, he was only 9 years out, but at least he got the teams right. :p

Is it just me, or.....?

If Howie took part in that quiz and didn't know the answer to the 1st question, that would have been embarrassing considering he supports the club who won their 1st ever flag in 1961. Was the question about the 79 GF to do with Wayne Harmes.

Nah, Howie was asking the questions. Yes, the question about the 1979 GF was "who won the first Norm Smith Medal?"

Do you have the latest ratings? Apparently MMM smashed Saturday?

Love you long time if you do

I believe MMM finished top for Friday night and Saturday afternoon footy, not sure about the rest.
Nah I would doubt it, they always claim that they are the number one station but I think they mean a certain age category. 3AW is always well ahead overall I think.

Nah wrong on that one. They were well ahead on all audiences in all slots they always dominate 10-55 but this was 10+

Will we see a shake up in MMM commentary for next year?
I think they might, the network has been making some fairly big changes in the last six months. For example:
- They are networking more shows
- Dropped their cricket coverage
- Called a heap more football games from the studio
- In Adelaide we don't receive the same hours of MMM football as we used to due to programming changes / ratings.

Reubski23 has said they have the top rating football coverage but it wouldn't surprise me if they make some changes.
