Yes your last point is a good one. But seriously do prefer Bruce and Brian to the sweet sound of silence? I wonder if anyone has done a trial of a telecast sports game without commentary but sounds of the crowd etc?

Don't know about anyone else, but we make so much crowd noise from our lounge room, especially when the umpires are making suspect decisions or non-decisions, the whole neighbourhood can probably hear us! The commentary is the background noise.

When I have to watch 7 I either watch it with no sound or have a radio station for sound. There is a lot to be said for no sound. It is like watching a game live, you don't get commentary at the ground why do we need it at home?

Why not just take the hearing aid out, old dee?

Foxtel did it for a few AFL games in the early 2000s. 

I recall being at a friends place watching an AFL game and pressing the red button on the remote to turn the commentary off and change camera angles. It was a bit clunky but definitely could have been refined into something quite good. 

Below is an example of how it looked with the rugby. The audio could be changed to commentators off  but still with crowd noise on and I think their was an option to have the umpires audio feed as well.

Cannot believe with today’s technology that this is not possible, as always, it’s about the money.

Yes and he pulls it off quite well actually. Many people don’t function at all well when the camera is rolling live to air

BT is a legend. Love the roaming Brian. He actually always says the Dees are very open and accomodate his interviews. Great stuff all round.

To be honest I prefer Roaming Brian, where he is intentionally being a tool for a bit of light hearted entertainment, to Commentary Brian, where his toolery interferes with the actual call. 

Intentional?

Or

Natural?

What gets right up my goat is when Brian & Co get totally side tracked when calling the game and start drivaling on about completely irrelevant rubbish - just shut the f#@* up already.

Me too.  And most of it is name dropping or showing off in some other way.

His multiple endless rants during the game about the Melbourne players having dinner at Lever's place during the game the other night.  BT "I've got conections" - wooooo, for real, give me a break FFS.

Like that time they spent a quarter prattling on about Leigh Montana's (?) Mexican themed birthday party and how they had uploaded it to Instagram. 

Genuinely cringe worthy stuff.

I didn't mind roaming Brian the other night. I mean if he is doing it that means your team has won, which is good. Plus it's the first time I really got to hear anything from Gary Pert.

What we've learnt from (Brian) Ch 7 and others is that Jake Lever is a cook maybe  suitable   MKR ?  Demonland posters Poor maligned Trac for Fattest Losers and Married  at First Sight any of our young eligible players (bachelors) in the off season to keep their fitness levels in check. Give Stephen  May the producers ph. no please.

The generation that like this stuff are bored and cynical.  looking for more.... maybe because of all the rubbish told to them on the media.   Almost force-fed rubbish.. is all they've seen.

This plastic society.

 

Maybe going back to ore organic honest commentary...  and honest appraisal without any bling comment attached,  is the antidote to all this feed-lot mentality.

 

Maybe its the media-bosses and the Advertising executives,  doing the very same things the Former AFL stars and their EGO's spread on our daily bread for us, from our waking moment to our time of shut-eye.

I understand the "engine room" access, but why does it need to in such a moronic, juvenile and dense way. I just dont get it..

Their viewers are all age groups, and surely the AFL would want this inside access to appeal to the kids...  as well as the adults.   Lets not over sophisticate it.

Not AFL, but I have a version of the last few minutes of the 2003 Rugby World Cup. All you hear is the referees directives and the crowd. It’s brilliant.

Shame about the result.

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    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
