Channel 7 WANT MORE GOALS!

Recommended Posts

If we maintain our form, which i hope and pray we do🙏 There is no reason why we dont get at least 7-8 of Thursday/Friday and sat night primetime games next year. 

Channel 7 wake up and smell the roses you want goals put the Dees on Primetime TV.

I wonder whether Channel 7 had any say in getting Carlton 4 Friday night games? If so, you reap what you sow.

They get heaps of goals in their Carlscum games 😂

This stuff is disturbing.

Increasingly, we are seeing the interference in the peoples game by television and its executives.

So the 7 boss wants to see more goals and wants players to play with more freedom. 

I reckon the Demons and a few other clubs are delivering that to the spectators and TV stations today. 

Seriously, how much tampering with our great game are we going to see?

No problem, pick up the phone and ring the AFL to change some rules to change the way the game is played. 

It seems that every week that as well as TV executives, there are media types, ex coaches and players calling on the AFL to change the rules. 

Just leave the bloody game alone. 

However, I feel that this is just going to get worse, and we will see more interference to please the games Masters. The TV and media outlets. 

One day, we will wake up and suddenly ask whats happened to our game. 

Sorry, i forgot the game is there for ratings, advertising and to fatten the coffers of the parasites, leeches and vultures that circle our footy game.

True,  before they totally [censored] up, the AFL should put in the no brainer rule and reduce interchange to only 5 or 10 rotations a quarter. If that doesn’t work, then think about trying something else. No knee jerk reactions please.

If Channel 7 is genuinely asking the AFL to do something to improve the game, then the AFL is within its rights to ask Channel 7 to improve its coverage. So, what should the AFL ask for? My suggestions:

  • agree to start the Friday night game at 7.35 pm (viewers have little interest in pre-game twaddle, so start the game 5 minutes after the broadcast starts)
  • put a minimum of four games on FTA each week, generally being one each on Friday and Saturday night and one each on Saturday and Sunday afternoon
  • provide more diversity in its coverage. This is not about being for or against particular commentators (eg, Cameron Ling, Brian Taylor, etc) but that they overuse the same people. The coverage could also benefit from new blood, and not just ex-AFL players.

We are on Friday night in two weeks vs Port.  If they want goals, we will give them.

Have Carlton got any more Friday night games?   What a farce that is.

Agree with above.

One of the charms of soccer is that it has never changed its rules for decades. While tactics may have changed, the rules haven't.

Maybe 100 years of constancy is a bit much but can we go a year before KB launches his awesome new changes on the league?

The fact corporate fat cats are asking for 'change' makes me more suspicious.

The coverage into NSW - a market the AFL aims to grow - is just poverty stricken. And I don't mean Sydney. I mean all of NSW including the Northern Rivers and MNC where there is a sizeable Vic/SA/WA expat base plus the crazy banana benders from SEQ who obviously are discerning and realise Viccy Kicky is better than that NRL buffoonery.

Saturday 1.XXPM and 2.10PM games are almost never on. Neither are the later (pre 7.30/7.45) ones. Unless it's GWS Freo. GWS Manangatang Ladies Coterie. etc etc.

Instead, you have 35 channels on 7 all showing 2 shows with 18 flavours. Here they are for your viewing (dis)pleasure.

Ice road truckers Alaska

Ice road truckers North West Territories

Ice road truckers Yukon

Pimp my ride Venice Beach

Pimp my ride GLENDAAAAALE (actually this one is funny)

Pimp my ride Rancho Cucamonga

It just goes on and on and is just risible


I know 7 have a partner in Fox, and I know they ponied up billions in fiat currency but geez Louise, it's just poxy to the max.

Show more Demons games FFS

Agree with old mate Ern up there re: stop f#cking with the game but I spose given the money they get....

Then again, Carlton on telly is a bit of the, how you say, a joke

Ch-7 should butt out.   They do not run the game.

 

It's time the game had less over-exposure. And more attendances, and get that tribalism back at the grounds.

 

And like most pundits, less rotations, more open space, and more man on man matchups.

Normally I'd agree with you, but KB's the one leading the charge on reverting to a forced-low interchange. That's the one rule I'd love to see.

I've never agreed with KB on anything incidentally.

It stopped being "our great game" when it changed from being 18 on 18 to 22 on 22 - effectively 8 more players in the game.  Add additional levels of fitness so they can run all day & it the game has become a continual, congested rugby scrum.

Of course they do. According to SWYL. Though to be fair he might be living in a time warp.

Guess what irritates me Cranky is just the degree of interference and who is making it, purely for self interest and/or commercial reasons.  These folk seem to think they have a right to influence or change the game.

Jesus Christ. That was chilling reading.

"We can make the game more beautiful"

Translation: anything that increases ratings is beautiful. Maybe more explosions, G-rated strippers and in-game prizes for the punters at home!!

"If we can get Collingwood firing, that helps"

Translation: Carlton have let us down badly. Screw integrity, fairness, competitive balance, all those touchy feely fartarse things ... we will manipulate the game to advantage Collingwood = ratings, the most important thing in the world!!!

 

How long before Gil completely outsources the management of the game to Channel 7? Think of the money it would save. (Money = king, so therefore good.)

Having said all of the above... 

I do admit a fast, open, free flowing and high scoring game is far more entertaining. We all love celebrating our favourite players putting one through the middle. 

So the Melbourne/Richmond/Collingwood (as much as it kills me to say it) and WCE current game-play is appealing and delivers. 

But ultimately, I really get worried when I hear that NRL gets higher ratings than AFL on TV. I say, Scrap GWS (possibly make them an ACT team) and GCS's, and bring on a Tassie (Devils?) and a NT (Crocks) team. Because every time AFL trumps NRL, I get a little warm and fuzzy feeling inside. 

Just my 2 cents.

Of course the strange thing is that the old fashioned kick to a player in space is not a great TV game either due to current camera angles etc.

Channel 7's definition of a good game is akin to basketball ...lots of scoring and a close game usually decided in the last couple of minutes..... What a yawn.

Let's see the TV stations play with some more angles and different commentary styles.
