Our friggin' ABC tv

Viewers were promised no repeat of the cutting short of VFL telecasts, yet they choppoed off the Casey v Sandy match to put on several minutes of self promotion advertisements.
This is extremely rude. Will the full game be shown next Wednesday morning?

That needs a please explain from the VFL again.

They clearly extended the broadcast because it went for over 3 hours and past 4pm but I'd like to know what happened.

Argh.. I am just sitting down to watch the game now. I saw some of the match (with the sound down) when I was near a TV briefly and it looked like a good tough low scoring battle. I'll have to watch knowing what's coming I guess!

It had better not happen during finals!

Hope that they show the whole game when they show the replay during the week.

I've just watched the end of the replay and it was the cut short version.

pretty bad from the ABC

i guess it's really hard to show the master tape on air with the end complete.

It wouldn't surprise me if the commentators were told to stop calling the game when they went off air they should carry on and go right to the end that way they can still show interviews and the complete game on replay but couldn't even do that.

Fair to say they wouldn't expect any DVD sales from the coverage! :)
