I’d be amazed if Fox replied, that’s ridiculous of you to even question why they’d be simulcasting an event of this nature. Collingwood’s season was fantastic and I’ve seen plenty of footy fan’s suggest that the premiership winner’s B&F should become a yearly tradition, maybe something for the next right’s deal perhaps.
That’s my point, I have no problem if Collingwood paid for the telecast.
First of all I’m not your bro. It’s “deep” for me as the AFL panders to Collingwood and other “big” clubs, e.g my team plays 1 game against Geelong and always in Geelong every year. So it’s all about money and Collingwood will never have to do this so I was annoyed that it looked to me that now the AFL broadcaster is pandering to them too.
There are many posts on here on topics which to me seem ridiculous but mean something to others so I realise others have topics that are important to them. I think it’s a bit weird that you think I shouldn’t question Fox.
I have already had a reply but there are things I questioned again as it didn’t say unequivocally Collingwood paid for the telecast.
This seems like an incredibly odd hill to die on
So what if they didn’t? Fox is in the game of broadcasting content that people are interested in and will watch, so it stands to reason given the size of the supporter base that they might be able to get viewer numbers that would justify broadcasting the event.
That said, personally, I don’t see the point of showing these kinds of events live - they’re not particularly great television - but I’m not the one making the decision what to show (or not show).
Try being a supporter of a non-Victorian-based club - for a “national” competition, the AFL does incredibly well to make sure the Victorian teams get every advantage possible.
I can understand how non Victorian club supporters feel about advantage to Victorian clubs but believe me it’s not equal to all Victorian clubs.
This is the reply I got from Kayo. They didn’t answer my question if Collingwood paid so let’s leave it here.
Thanks for getting back in touch.
We appreciate the details you have sent to us which made us understand your concern well. Apologies for the confusion.
If all the other 17 clubs don’t have the “Best and Fairest” night, there are some sports or content we are unable to stream because our content providers do not have the rights to show those contents.
So, if the sport or content you’re looking for isn’t available in Kayo, it could be because of this. Please note, that fixtures are subject to change at each content provider’s discretion.
We understand that this is an important matter for you. But no worries as we really appreciate you reaching out to us and providing us a heads-up. Messages such as yours will allow us to make the needed feedback for improvement, so the Kayo family using the platform have the best experience possible.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reply to this email or send us a chat for a quicker response.
As much as I disagree with you on this: wow, what a poorly written response from Kayo. Clear as mud.
It feels like various strings of AI-generated text smooshed together to form a barely coherent response.
I have a feeling it’s come from somewhere a long way from Australia from someone who has a script but little knowledge of Kayo or Kayo programming. I have put the matter to rest, a few days after the event it doesn’t seem to matter so much. For those who don’t agree with how I felt about this matter maybe you can understand that my football team means a lot to me.
It really screams pre-generated response with spots for someone to customise
This could mean when Fox Footy shows AFL and AFLW matches produced by Seven, viewers will be able to choose between commentary from Fox Footy and Seven.
I think it means that if you watch the 7 produced games on Fox, it will have Fox commentary & graphics
Yeah I think it’s just making it obvious to viewers that they won’t have to listen to Seven. Although I would love to see MaddenCast esque alternate calls available.
The AFL announced the 2024 fixture this afternoon, with dates and times for the Opening Round and Round 1 to 15 confirmed so far.
From Round 1 to Round 9, the Sunday matches will start at either 1pm or 4pm Melbourne time. From Round 10 onwards it is back to 1.10pm, 3.20pm and 4.40pm AEST.
Fox Footy will broadcast the 2023 AFL Draft live from Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium on Monday and Tuesday (November 20-21) at 7pm AEDT.
Harley Reid shapes as a generational talent to whichever team selects him. As the 2023 AFL Draft begins, where will he be playing football in 2024?
I just switched on Fox Footy for the AFLW final (it is quarter time), and the Quarter Time scoreboard graphic during the ad break is for last night’s Adelaide v Sydney game. Why do they bother with this feature as they rarely get it right.
Fox Fox Fox Fox Fox!
Pretty sure that’s Stan Sport
wait, wrong alternative timeline-
