Outrage at poor sports screening decision

By toriness 18 June 2008 48

Does anyone know where the Carlton v Essendon game is being shown LIVE on a big screen at a pub or club this Sunday at 2pm?

It is a pay per view Foxtel game and it was with serious outrage that I read the reply I received from my usual footy viewing haunt, the Ainslie Football Club this morning – telling me that they were only showing the REPLAY at 7:30pm! What are they showing at the time Carlton v Essendon (2 of the best supported and fervently followed clubs in the AFL) in on – Swans v Melbourne *yawn fall over dead from boredom*!!!! A game which is being played at Manuka Oval so anyone remotely interested in watching it (and I guarantee this dull game will be undersold) will actually be going to!!! Shame on you AFC.

Please please please can someone tell me where I can go to see the almighty Blues crush the skanky Bombers – LIVE.

What’s Your opinion?

I don’t give a crap about football on TV, there seems to be at least one night per week which is completly ruined by various sorts of football and you have to watch DVDs (or even SBS), BUT this is a very amusing thread I must say.

I hope you weren’t watching SBS this morning, haha.

I was, suck on that Liverpool.

Very close to Flame Of The Week Toriness – just press CAPS LOCK next time and replace a few “the”s with “teh”s…

Better still, build a bridge.

sorry reprobate, i will start a fascinating thread next time about how crap canberra radio is and wah wah wah about that instead rather than plugging in my mp3 player and choosing my own music shall i?

What channel does the AFC show the men’s sports on? Sounds like their Fox is dedicated to a girl’s game

You prefer sticking your head up another man’s arse I see, haha.

I’d say they’re doing it in honour of old boy James Hird. The Bombers are going to get fking smashed, hahahahahahahaha!

GO BLUES!

Wow, you hardly had time to set the drag before you got a strike. Keep playing, I’m sure you will land it.

But I don’t think you are going to be scoring any records at the weigh-in with what you have hooked. Quite a light-weight I think.
