It annoys me that Chanel 7 ignores the restart of play at the centre bounce.

 

After a goal is scored, an add break...   and then all they want to do is show bloody replays...   and talk shyte,  while the game has moved on.

Not showing respect to the game itself....  but only the highlights, of they're choice.

 

Stop this Craap C-7__    and show our midfielders and rucks doing the centre bounce setups, and then the Bounce/Ruckwork.

 

Anyone would think CH-7 do not like Ruckmen, and midfielders,  and the bounce itself.

 

comments anyone?

The problem is they have commercial responsibilities but they still want to show replays of the big plays/goals. It's very difficult to do both in the 5-8 second window between returning from the break and the bounce. Personally I think they should just focus on the live play. They have to play ads, otherwise there's no FTA coverage.

Why are you annoyed DV8? The AFL sells it's soul on a five/six yearly basis to the highest bidder who get to call the tunes. Do you really find this surprising?

We miss out on the prep for the ruck duels.   Stuff the replays after the adds.

They're degrading the game and the ruck contests. (putting the live game in a tiny box in the corner of the screen,,, as the bounce happens).

shithouse.

Don't show they're replays then, really simple.

I'm sick of hearing all the special commentators talking shyte.    Whilst the game goes on without commentary.

Yeah not totally disagreeing but I also guarantee you there'll be plenty of people out there saying "why wasn't there a replay of that goal?" Bottom line is they want to show a replay they need to keep it to something quick; just goal, and celebrations.

The reason I have Foxtel (and forfeit eating for 2 days a month is to watch  Footy ad free while it is on AND to see Melbourne play, because Ch7 onl;y know the numbers and players of the big 4 (memberwise in Melb) i.e Cwood,Toiges, Essendon and Carlton. I think they are actually warming to Hawks too, probably because of their Triple Pships.(It has just taken a while for the penny to drop.

Yes, but we're missing the live game, for that.   replays and shyte.

Get used to it.

Hopefully, now that we've made finals and we've looked good in almost every prime time game we've played this year, and we're the highest scoring side from 2018, we should find ourselves playing more prime time games in 2019.

Trouble is even if you have Foxtel you are still watching the 7 feed with the 7 commentary team.

I agree with 'DV8', it is so annoying to watch the live centre bounce in a little square when they're featuring a replay.

What really annoys me is all the times they’re just replaying the set shot for goal; not the play prior that led to the shot. Is this the most un-useful thing you can replay?

FOXTEL is your friend. No ad footy and all the most excellent trash TV for when you need to drown your sorrows. 

Pretty poor of Ch7 to not even show us the song. FFS it was a massive occasion!

That's not quite right. Most times you have a Foxtel commentary team. Have had Foxtel since first day of broadcasting as I cannot cope with the bias commentary of channel 7. And while I'm at it can someone please explain channel 7's insistence of a "quarterback". Really grates me. It's NOT special Bruce.

If it's a channel 7 broadcast then the best you'll get is half time/full time analysis from fox footy, live commentary will still be seven as they just take the feed.

I prefer fox footy to watch as they focus more on the footy and analysing the game, whereas seven likes to talk about the stories behind the game, the players, the coaches, the boot studders etc. Because they don't have any ad breaks they can also give proper replays to show the build ups and the key moments that created the goal.

David King and Derm can get pretty tiresome at times but usually what they say is pretty on point.

No, if it's the 7 feed unfortunately you always get the 7 commentary...like yesterday's game.

Can't remember going back to the early days of Fox but that's what happens now.

Fox don't overlay their commentary the only thing they will do is on Friday night run their analysis pre game, post game and at half time.

OK, they have too show ads and they have limited time to show a replay and are increasingly squeezing the ball up into a small panel with a confusing last second switch.  Solution - add another 5 seconds to the break between goal and ball-up.  The current time gap was introduced for TV so what if it is made a tiny bit longer.  Won't distress too many at the game.

What I'd really like to see is a wider shot before the bounce so we can see how teams have set up around the square.

Did they have the work experience kids in charge of the cameras yesterday?  Was bloody hopeless at times.

And that bloke that commentated with BT, never ever heard of him before.  Must have been some ring-in from a Perf community radio station or something.  He was as bad as the cameraman.

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
