I thought there were two “second tier” (AFL feeder) competitions in Victoria… perhaps I’m wrong…

As you can probably tell by my avatar, I don’t follow them very closely, but was commenting from an NRL perspective.

The VFA was practically out of existence in 1995 and became the VFL. Once the AFL reserves joined interest in the traditional VFA clubs dropped dramatically. It’s been a slow decline in news coverage to practically nothing. Not dissimilar to Sheffield shield cricket, news directors decided the audience no longer cares.

Do they normally not have sport in the 7pm bulletins?

Two nights in a row ABC News Victoria’s 7pm bulletin didn’t have any sport.

Probably also because it’s a quiet-ish few days with no major sport until Wednesday when the ICC World Cup resumes?

Victoria starting at the desk tonight, don’t think I’ve seen this happen since the current set launched a few years ago.

Isn’t he also facing a trial in QLD for accusation of a rape that took place after the Higgins case went national?

Generally only done when Yvonne presents news on 24 after 8pm. Perhaps same producer running the shift.

More suited to the corporate thread?

These robot cameras in Vic really have a mind of their own don’t they! :rofl:

Right after Tamara Oudyn introduced Danny Tran for weather, the main camera ran off focus so for a few seconds it was looking at the wall panel between the two presenters.

The episode uploaded to iView didn’t have this, only a throw to Danny who we never saw, only read the weather. No mention made as to why.

That’s exactly what I saw on TV as well. It came right after the camera going off focus, so the producers went to the graphics instead. The iView edit omitted the out of focus bit.
