I read with interest that AFL boss Andrew Demetriou wants television stations to show live TV coverage for all matches on free to air tv.
This is an issue that has always puzzled me.
I often hear irate footy supporters ringing radio stations, groaning that their team is televised on delayed telecast and they can’t watch their team play live on TV.
I’ve never had an issue with this one.
I’ve always thought if you want to watch your team live, you can always go to the game and see them live.
If you want to watch the game on tv, all you have to do is keep away from the radio, internet and other such medium and watch the delayed game on tv.
This to me has always been the next best thing to watching it live.
I’m interested in your feedback on this one because frankly, I’ve never lost any sleep over the delayed telecast footy match.
