anyone remember the scoreboard channel nine had in the first year of their coverage? and they always had that bar thing behind only one of the teams? and no one could figure out what it was for? that annoyed me greatly.

Chalk me down as the one person here who hasn't noticed these apparent scoreboard changes.

Anyway, can't believe the pre-season begins this week. Looking forward to it, even though I have severe reservations about the format. I've just missed footy, any footy, being on telly.

I really love the Fox Sports scoreboard graphic which was introduced in '09. The '04 version wasn't bad. CH10's needs to be freshened up.

Honestly reckon the Channel 9 02-06 one was pretty ugly, those gradients are disgusting. Surprised it won the poll.

Yeah, I reckon Channel 10's earlier one was better (2002-2004) and is better than the one they have now.

I hate Channel 7's current one. Agreed on Channel 9's 02-06, ugly as. I've always liked Channel 10's.

So, turns out that the start of the NAB Cup tonight is not being broadcast on free-to-air.

Guess I'll have to find it online somewhere ...

(Tonight and Sunday are on Foxtel; Saturday's on One HD but I'll be seeing Tim Finn!)

I hate the preseason comp... don't think I'll watch any of it.

Fingers crossed this garbage last-person-to-touch-the-ball-before-it-goes-out-of-bounds rule gets canned. The supergoal is just

Ask yourself, were you really expecting high quality football from 3 teams with their B sides in February?

Eh, I missed last night (Laneway YEAHHHHH) but I reckon I'll watch tonight's game, even if the skills are shite I want to see exactly how ridiculous this bullshit three game idea is, and besides, I need a footy fix.

Cut Copy were ace, and yes they played So Haunted, crowd went crazy! I didn't see Les Savy Fav, think I must have been seeing someone else at the same time. Yeasayer were really awesome too and got a really, really good welcome... they seemed pretty overwhelmed by it so hopefully they'll come back to Oz again soon. I will write a fullish report later. Also since I'm staying in tonight I might drive around a bit and listen to some of your DI list.

Jealous! Love that song. Yeasayer too.

Let me know what you think if you do!
