The Fox Sports 3 is a welcome addition and will mean that Foxtel will be able to show many live games at the same time. This will also mean that from now the English championship matches will be shown live rather than delayed as has been the case so far save for one or two matches.
With the AFL season finishing today with the AFL Grand Final the Fox Footy channel will sorely be missed for real when the AFL pre-season tournament begins next year and suddenly there is no place where you can catch up with any missed matches at any time.
The first local sport or match to be shown live on Fox Sports 3 will be the A-League top of the table
encounter between Melbourne Victory and Queensland Roar.
It did seem crazy on Sunday. The two Brisbane vs Melbourne games were perfectly adjacent. There were several people at the pub wanting to watch first the football then the rugby. How ideal a situation for cross-promotion can you get? Cross-promotion of the sports, maybe, but I mean just of the pubs, or Fox or whatever. Not only was there no promotion, the pubs were not even briefed on what to do. Yesterday I tried five seperate pubs and they still didn't know what Fox 3 was.
It's a problem if we are concerned for the future of the A-League audience. Especially as the rugby and AFL has just finished, this was/is exactly the moment to garner the football audience. By moving to Fox 3 all of a sudden the opposite occurred. Conspiracy? No, I suspect a stuff up.
Well done Melbourne and Sydney by the way. I was backing Brisbane and Adelaide, but they were beaten soundly and deservedly.
In the Adelaide/Sydney match it looks like Adelaide missed suspended Shengqing Qu and
injured Fernando too much but the day surely belonged to Benito Carbone. I only watched the second
half and I thought he played well and it looks like Sydney after the departure of Yorke
needed a playmaker and in Carbone I think they have made a good find. But lets not forget that this is just one
game, so lets wait and see if he can repeat the performance this coming round against Queensland Roar.
Indeed! I must admit I was feeling a bit cocky, on behalf of Roar, facing Sydney, but after hearing about this Carbone bloke, and an apparent regrouping of Butcher's troops in general, I'm worried.
Should be a good game. I will be doing my research on pubs with Fox 3 in the next couple of days, rather than waiting for Sunday afternoon.
What I'm really excited about though, is Suncorp stadium on Saturday night. I don't even care who wins. I'm just expecting and hoping for some damn good football.
