2017 Watch AFL was quite good!

Now that the 2017 season is over I can say the improvements made to Watch AFL online are impressive.  I enjoyed watching everything Watch AFL had to offer, especially seeing the Fox Footy channel, complete with Australian domestic commercials.  The pictures were sharper and clearer, we heard audio in stereo for the first time. Watching live and on demand was almost trouble-free, just some very minor buffering once in a great while.  The post-production editing of games on demand was very smooth and professional looking plus we got to see the victory songs in the locker rooms after the games.  Coverage of the womens' games was great. The off or on button for seeing scores is nice.  Easy navigating the whole site.  Closed captioning would be nice.  That's one improvement that could be made.  I'm a satisfied customer and look forward to 2018.

Separate pre-game coverage on the 7 Network and Fox Footy

Is there separate pre-game television coverage of the Grand Final, ANZAC Day, Queens Birthday, and/or Thursday and Friday evening games on the Seven Network and Fox Footy?  I'm certain these games are simulcast on both channels, with Seven being the originating channel.  But it seems I've seen pre-game coverage of Grand Finals from both channels.  I recall seeing Seven (or maybe it was Ten) pre-game programs starting with their morning breakfast program a few years ago on espn3.com.  This year everything pre-Grand Final on Watch AFL originated with Fox.

Former Port Adelaide and Hawthorn premiership player Stuart Dew has been appointed as the new senior coach of the Gold Coast Suns. Dew, 38, won out over Carlton assistant coach John Barker and Collingwood assistant coach Scott Burns. He, like Barker, has completed his Level Four coaching course and won strong reviews throughout the AFL program which was designed to help assistants advance to senior positions. Dew was first interviewed formally by the Suns in mid-September, along with Adam Kingsley (St Kilda), Jade Rawlings (Melbourne) and former Western Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney. He, Barker and Burns made it to the final interview stage.

The Richmond Tigers have pulled off a stunning Grand Final victory over the Adelaide Crows at the MCG, smashing the premiership favorites by a whopping 48 points in front of a raucous crowd of 100,021. The Tigers put any controversy about wearing their yellow “clash” strip away with a stellar performance, wiping away 37 years of pain for their massive band of loyal supporters.
