Only solution is buy a subscription and to hell with 7/ AFL. Of course that is probably what they want anyway. 

Channel 7 would probably prefer the eyeballs from Demons games = ads. Especially with all the goals we kick!!!oneoneno111 #amirite

Foxtel would obviously prefer you subscribe. Still a good deal (I'm on Telstra's $10/m deal until mid 2023). All of the golf majors which aren't on FTA, on Foxtel. Cycling too.

The AFL doesn't care, as long as they maximise their broadcast revenue.

The basic Kayo subscription is $25 per month for one stream. The premium is $35 for three streams. The streams can be on any devices.

I've got the premium with my two adult children, so we just organise to pay ~$11.67 each between us.

Correct, I am well aware that the AFL don't care their major concern is cash from media rights. All else is running a bad last. I get the sad feeling that in the new rights deal  the FTA network will get less than 7 in this deal. Only the casual viewer / poor will be watching their team infrequently on FTA.

You get the money out of them? My experience is get them to open the account and I will give you my share. The reverse sees me paying most months with “ oh sorry dad I will send you the money later today” if it works for you then you have my admiration mauriesy.

if you had the free Kayo sub whilst a Telstra mobile customer, and converted to a Kayo account, you were on $5 / mo for I think 12 months and they've extended the $10/mo for an extra I think 1 year.

The purported Paramount+/Ten deal would see I think only 2 FTA games/week? Someone feel free to correct me

Every match in AFL is on the Commonwealth anti siphoning rules

Can't see a Government allowing  7 of 9 games to go behind a paywall but who knows

No one knows. Pure conjecture if you have read that somewhere.

Happy to be wrong with this, I checked FTA channel 7 for our game on the weekend and we are not being broadcast. The premiers and not seen again on FTA for two weeks in a row. Why bother with FTA get a subscription and get every game. So much for sponsors getting more coverage. Yes I know we playing the last team on the ladder. 

In fairness, only 3 out of 9 games are televised on FTA most weeks so the odds are high that we're going to have quite a few weeks on Foxtel.

Although 5 weeks in a row is quite stiff.

So how come some games are not available FTA. 

You need Govt approval to depart from the list.

It is often given if the package is "right"

For example the Govt approved Cricket Australia's request for ALL ODI's involving Australia going behind the Foxtel paywall as of end 2021.

The anomaly is that digital streaming is outside the rules. It only applies to cable. Notwithstanding you'd be a brave code to breach the spirit of the rules without a nod from Govt

Just jumped through some hoops to shut down my Kayo account, because I'm currently overseas. It inspired me to close my Amazon and Uber Pass accounts as well, and then remembered that I also had some sub-accounts through Amazon - none of which I have used for over six months. All in, I think I have thrown over $500 against the wall, because I'm socio-economically stupid and lazy. It's the old gym membership play. I think there should be some law against it.

why humans have pom-poms on their beanies? Like what's the function and when did it become a thing?

Must say I normally cut them off but you are right it is one of life's biggest mysteries

Pom-poms are purely ornamental. 

During WW2 when there was a dearth of pretty much everything - in this case ready-made clothes - women would knit garments since wool was cheap and relatively accessible. Further, knitted garments, when no longer serviceable, could be *unknitted, in a manner of speaking.

Not wanting to waste anything, leftover wool was used to make pom-poms. Two reasons: there wasn’t much else in terms of decoration for one’s attire.

And also coz making pom-poms is cake. So easy in fact that even men can make them  Maybe

Welp, that’s it for theory. Tune in next week for prac. where I’ll teach y’all how to make one. 😁

For those who doubt this is possible, look up the lyrics to the chorus of a song called ‘Undone’ (aka ‘The Sweater Song’) by Weezer. 🤭

I don’t think Salem is anywhere ready. Didn’t he just start running last week? Still think he is 2 weeks away. 

If Dunstan is out then it might be a shuffling of deck chairs to bring a defender or Forward in. My guess :

In : Weid to CHF, Tmac to wing , JJ to mid / HF

Bedford for Chandler as medi sub. 

 

Weideman has had his chances and failed to capitalise. If a wildcard chance was to come into play, I would rather get a game into Van Rooyen. Having said that if Dunstan is fit he plays if not Laurie might be a chance or Bedford as well

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
