Boring. Well my Day was alright, but Tonights been boring.

Moving office went pretty smoothly, there's still a bit to be done, but I left at 3....I'd had enough, and there were plenty of others around anyways.

So yeah, i've just stuffed around all day apart from that. How about yourself?

Glad things went smoothly there. Heh, I slept away a lot of the day, then wasted much of the rest. But the rugby's on soon, so I'll get out the wine and cheese and crackers, so that should be good.

Maybe even some drunkposting.

Let's hope the phone gives them some nasty sort of brain tumour.

Have a good night, Jen!

The Wallabies are playing France. Only time you'll catch me going for Australia unless you're playing the Yanks. The game was actually earlier this evening, but since it was held HERE, they're broadcasting it on delay to Melbourne viewers.

You know you want to join in on the drunkposting!

Or even better, you know you want to come watch one of the Tri-Nations games with me! I'm tired of having no company. Go on go on go on go on go on.

And its Channel 7?, and they could have shown it LIVE...because of the Vicar Of Dibly or whatever piece of crap TV show they put on instead.

I'm really pissed off at Free To Air stations and Sport these days.

Yeah, that really pissed me off when I checked the TV guide. Couldn't believe my eyes. I'd not be too irked if it were just a half hour delay or something like what they often do with the AFL, but pushing it back to MIDNIGHT is stupidity. I'm alright with it, since I'm always up then anyway, but for most people, it's just too late. No wonder union isn't gaining a foothold in Victoria; the people can't bloody see it!

Sport coverage on free-to-air in this country is a pathetic joke compared to what it was back in the late 1990s.

Damn straight. It's been alright, but I reckon once Channel 7 lost the Footy Rights in 2002, it just started a domino effect on all the other sports.

Everyone keeps saying Pay TV isn't expensive, and it's not really, but I shouldn't HAVE to have Pay TV to Watch my OWN COUNTRY, or Favorite Team.

Remembers the days when SBS had 1 Live English Premier League Game a week, and then the highlights program?

Pay TV is fucking expensive if you ask me. I mean, $35 a month, mostly for channels I have no interest in watching? Piss off. And then making me pay more and more to get the various packages that DO offer the sport I want - it's an absurdity. If they'd offer a channel for a dollar or two, then I'd just get all the sport channels. I'd pay $10 a month for that. Maybe I'd even throw the history channel or something into the mix. But as it stands, it's moronic and it just pushes people away from sport. It over-commercialises it. While there is a place for commercialisation in sport and it helps keep things afloat, it is at the core a social and communal activity, and without that aspect, it withers and dies. See state cricket for proof.

You don't even get the sports channels as part of the basic package anymore, I'm not sure about Foxtel, but Austar definitely don't have that old package.

So its more like around $60 for sports channels now. Until I get a massive pay rise, I'll have to put up with this shitty Free To Air sports channels.
