Lecras is back too!!

I'm very upset 10 has lost the rights. They're much better than 7.

Can anyone tell me, I see foxtel are showing all nine games live from next year but are 7 showing their four live?

Full rights details here: AFL TV Deal: Foxtel, Channel 7, Telstra Mobiles, Tablets & T-Box

I've basically resolved to cave in to Foxtel prior to the Rugby World Cup anyway.

Going out right now, will post picks in about an hour.

If I'm understanding that correctly, that means only Friday & Saturday night and Sunday games are gonna be shown live on fta, which is disappointing.

I'm gonna try and push for foxtel, but the rents will say no.

All foxtel games will have no ads!!!!

And Friday night games start at 750!!! AND SATURDAY GAMES AT 145!!!!!!!!! 90 minute delay! bullshit!

Er, isn't this an improvement on how much is live on FTA now?

The 90 minutes on Saturday thing is bullshit though.

It is, but I was under the impression we were going to get four or more games fta, all live, every week. You might as well not televise the sat arvo game if it's going to be on a 90 minute delay.

I was under the impression we were going to get raped up the arse by Foxtel, so this was a pleasant surprise to me that we're now going to have more live footy. I can hack Saturday being later if other games are now live. 30 or 90 minutes doesn't make too much difference in the end; I'll probably end up accidentally seeing the score one way or another no matter how delayed the coverage is.

vlad - 5/30
cobl04 - 6/28
axver - 6/27
bonnie - 5/25
inte - 5/24
danny - 5/23

West Coast vs Melbourne - glad the Eagles are looking better this year.
Sydney vs Carlton - Blues haven't won here since 1993 (!!!!!)
North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide - think the only side I'd support Port beating would be GWS (as in, I don't like them, I would tip them sometimes)
Richmond vs Brisbane - Martin is a fucking superstar, and Jacky Boi is getting cheers as loud as the Cho I'm hearing.
Adelaide vs St Kilda - based on the Crows holding them to 37 points in R22 last year, when the Saints were in better touch
Essendon vs Gold Coast - to inflict GC's second 100+ point loss
Collingwood vs Western Bulldogs

I got it on ps3. It's pretty cool just having an AFL game on the latest consoles. If you can get past a few weird things that happen, and how the graphics still look ps2-ey it's not so bad!
The commentary is awful.

My picks:

West Coast vs Melbourne
Sydney vs Carlton
North vs Port (the most irrelevant and disinteresting game of the season so far?)
Tigers vs Lions (on the verge of picking a draw)
Adelaide vs St Kilda
Essendon vs Gold Coast
Pies vs Dogs

Demons' away uniform is bloody ugly.

But then most of them are. Why do we even need these stupid away uniforms? It's not as if Melbourne and the Weagles even vaguely clash. Have just one fucking uniform with a clash alternative when required.

Have SGIO sponsored WC since the 1400s? Sure seems like it.

Eagles of either glory era would be up by 160 points right now.

A few things I want to know.

- Why is Mark Jamar labeled as 'Russian'?

- Why is Andrew Demetriou labeled as Vlad?
