This is the cry of a desperate man.
For the past couple of years, we in New Zealand have been able to watch the footy live streamed on the internet via AFL Live. This year, it has been cancelled. No footy watching for us unless you happen to own an iPhone (which I don’t) and want to squint into a small screen.
With a game between Sydney and St Kilda scheduled for Anzac Day in Wellington this year, it would seem to be marketing madness to remove the main source of raising enthusiasm amongst the locals, don’t you think?
The live streaming still goes to every country on Earth (from the Ukraine to Paraguay) by the way – except the one country where they are playing a game for four points and hoping to get a crowd to come and watch. Explain that to me!
Knackers, you would do us flat-vowelled, sheep-cuddling ex-pats a favour by publicising and hopefully encouraging the masses to rise up in righteous indignation against this blatant display of counter-favoritism.
If you guys can’t get anything done about it, the next step is the United Nations.
