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.

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.

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.

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
