Well, at least you've got the Tiges/Lions game - that actually looks pretty interesting right now. We have the Swans/Crows match which has been a no-show for the night.
Yeah, the Lions are really charging ahead at the end of the third quarter though. My mother should be happy. And, well, I win either way. I want Richmond to win, but I've been proclaiming all week that since I want them to win, Brisbane will - thus if the Lions win, I get the satisfaction of being right.

In any case, the Fitzroy Lions are my second team. Fuck this Brisbane bullshit, though.

Ax would probably have better answers, but I'd say it's just because Rugby of any kind isn't as popular in Victoria and the states west of it than it is in NSW and QLD.

There's no attendance requirement at all for lectures, just for the tutorials. I try to go to all tutorials since they tend to be useful anyway, but I'll skip lectures fairly frequently if I don't enjoy them.

Because apparently rugby rates so poorly in Victoria that they'd rather show the fuckin' Princess Diaries 2 than broadcast the NATIONAL TEAM live. Or they've done a deal with pay TV to not broadcast it live here. Either way, it's absolutely ridiculous.

Looking at the real time score (god, I wish it was on TV!) it's shaping up for a ripper of an ending. So keep an eye on it. I'm tense just looking at the numbers slightly changing on a Flash scoreboard.

Haha, well that whole merge still has its opposition. I don't think it did the AFL much good with the Lions getting three in a row earlier in the decade, either. People are still too stupid over there to give a shit.

I wonder how much of it is relative unpopularity and how much of it is an under-the-table deal with Fox Sports. Not having lived here back in the late 1990s when even New Zealand vs South Africa was live in Queensland, I don't know if this sort of stuff USED to be live or anything.

I could understand if the rugby were delayed due to AFL coverage. That's fair enough. But what 7's showing instead of the rugby is hardly high-rating. The Vicar Of Dibley re-runs? Give me a break. You can't tell me that's going to get higher viewership in Victoria than the NATIONAL BLOODY TEAM. So that's why I suspect something's happened under the table between 7, Fox Sports, and the ARU.

Ooh, OK. I've turned it off for now as I'd honestly rather listen to Porcupine Tree than watch Brisbane surge 30 points in front while the dumb-as-shit commentator calls a goal as being scored when it's obviously only a behind. But I'll put it back on for the end of the game.

I just won't go for Brisbane since they're a Queensland team, so I'll stick with saying I support the Fitzroy Lions. Instead of establishing this second Queensland team, how about they send the Lions back home and make this new team the only Queensland team? That'd be nice. It's not as if the second team is going to rope many more banana benders into the sport anyway.

Channel 7 is a pretty poor excuse for a TV network! Honestly, pay TV just has a total stranglehold over most live sport now, so if you only have free-to-air like I do, you're pretty fucked. Hell, even with the cricket, this country's only truly national sport, you can't watch games featuring Australia live on free-to-air unless they're actually being played in Australia.

(The only exception is the Ashes between Australia and England, since the series is so popular that there would be a revolt if it weren't broadcast live from England.)

You should really put it on. It's going to get closer than you think. I don't think it's over yet, either.

Fair enough on not going for Brisbane, but the second idea is kind of ridiculous. Not that I wasn't expecting it from you, though.

Just put it back on. 14.5 minutes to go, Richmond just kicked a goal and it's 93-85.

Oh, I know it's an utterly ridiculous idea, and frankly Melbourne needs less teams rather than more. But I want to go for Fitzroy!

Hey Bonnie, what are the implications of this game? I know my mother fears that the Lions have to win if they want to have any chance of making the finals, but earlier the commentators mentioned that the Lions had a chance of making the top four. And do Richmond have a chance to even make the eight at all?
