Not really a faux pas or the like, more of a general grievance with the broadcasters. It's probably going to sound pedantic, but I really don't like when broadcasters talk over the top of the winning clubs song after the siren. It happened in the St.Kilda vs Bulldogs game, Huddo (who I like btw) just continued on yakking away as the Saints song played. Channel 7 are generally pretty good at letting it run through. I don't know, maybe I'm on my own but I feel the theme song is a real quirk in our game and I enjoy being able to hear it after the siren goes on the broadcast

Completely agree

It highlights how commentators either think, or are made to believe that what they’re saying is bigger than the actual game, which is showed time and time again when the roar of the crowd is muted by pointless rambling after a goal
