Interesting how there was such a uproar over TV rights to the AFL and how 7 threw sooo much cash at it, yet they still can’t deliver. Canberra and regional fans of the AFL have to wait for an hour delayed coverage of tonight’s cracker games Pies vs. Cats. Why? Well who knows but thankfully Ch 10 has the GF and we’ll get a decent coverage and not have to put up with Bruce McAvainey
[UPDATED – And Growling Ferret had this to say:]
Tonight’s Collingwood v Geelong game is not live into Canberra. – and fox main event channel will not be showing it at all, as has been the case with EVERY OTHER FRIDAY NIGHT AFL GAME ALL SEASON.
It will be on a 50 minute delay, probably more by the end of the game because of extra ads.

Why does this piss me off? Its the biggest game since the 2007 Grand final, it is an absolute sell out. I pay Fox for the ability to watch Friday night games live, and this the biggest of them all for the year is not live except on radio due to the greed of PRIME.
