I do wonder if 3AW has ever aired a match from Manuka Oval that wasn’t a feed from 5AA or 6PR(e.g. sending their own team)?

3AW is also covering GWS v Sydney this afternoon. It does not normally broadcast matches not involving at least one Victorian team, unless it is crucial to finals chances of one or both teams.


#626

I’d say it’s calling it from Adelaide too, unless all 3 (McInnes, Butler and Tredrea) are flying to Adelaide to call the game tomorrow. They very well could be.


#627

They’re there or going to extreme lengths to dupe listeners.


#628

Haha that’s great to see, do hate the calling off TV business. I did have a bit both ways, as I was unsure. Thanks for clearing it up! :blush:


#629

Do you think that 3AW will cover the Lions-Eagles match next week, given it could have importance?


#630

Whilst driving, I heard that Boomer Harvey was the expert commentator for the Carlton v Western Bulldogs game at Etihad Stadium.


#631

No - they’ll likely cover the Melbourne v GWS Giants game since it has Top 8 implications for both sides


#632

It also makes sense for 3AW to take the Collingwood-Frematle match via 6PR, as the Magpies, Swans and Hawks are all on 56 points. The Geelong-Gold Coast match should also be covered, since a Gold Coast win gives Port Adelaide the 8 spot.


#633

MMM has that game listed, with the Perth team doing the call. Since JB can’t do it, nor can BT.


#634

3AW have access to the Sunday 3.20pm game as part of their A package. Don’t see why they’d suddenly cover a Sunday 1.10pm game from Brisbane instead.


#635

The game in Brisbane is meaningless. I see no reason for 3AW to cover it, when they have access to what will be a important match.


#636

Hang on, you were the one asking whether 3AW would cover the “important” Lions v Eagles match, I said no, now you’re trying to make it sound like it was my idea when I informed you what game they would cover?


#637

3AW will not broadcast Lions v Eagles on Sunday, according to the AFL website. It will cover Demons v GWS in full plus second half of St Kilda v North Melbourne. On Saturday, 3AW will broadcast Richmond v Western Bulldogs while other stations have Geelong v Gold Coast.


#638

You mean like they’ve covered Sunday 3.20 all year!? Fancy that…


#639

I assumed that SEN would have the Richmond v Western Bulldogs match, kind of surprised about 3AW having that one.


#640

Should 3AW pull Tim Lane or Tony Leonard from the Richmond v Western Bulldogs match to the Sydney v. Hawthorn match? the later is more important in terms of the finals.


#641

Shane McInnes and Matt Granland are calling Sydney v Hawthorn for 3AW, nothing wrong with that.


#642

Tonsils Granland is the best caller they’ve got, he’s definitely doing the right match!
