    So I know these clowns are showing the stupid English wedding on Friday instead of the football. Will they show football on Go or do we have to wait until this agony of soft porn for females is concluded?

    Dead set joke. Can we get Gallop made president so we can get a decent NRL CEO and rid of the crown?

    It's a laughing matter.....I understand that the wedding will rate much higher than FNF, but HELLO...not everyone wants to watch Wills and Kate so at least run the live game at 7.30pm on GO. Chan 7 has the entire night dedicated to this love fest, so let 9 do the same with 9 and stick the footy on GO.

    Simple Chan 9 really it's simple, if I can come up with thos why can't you morons

    I couldn't give a toss about the wedding but what I don't understand is why all the free to air channels have to show it FFS.

    The only way the royal wedding could be even close to bearable would be ABC2, where The Chaser are doing an alternate commentary.

    OneHD under 10 has had ownership go to Jamie Packer & Lachlan Murdoch. They are taking this channel from a FTA strictly sports channel to an entertainment channel. Funny that it is reducing one level of competition for Foxtel during the current negotiations for the AFL and NRL rights. That is definitely no accident.

    Shame that, but it appears the royals cannot laugh at themselves.

    They haven't managed to whack the NRL on the digital channels for Melbourne viewers yet, so I don't see why they would start now.

    I just hope it is something to do with the contractual agreements.

    IT's staggering that every FTA channel will be dedicated to this dross.

    I think there should be greater headlines for the coach of the royalty team as his impact will obviously be crucial. No prizes for calling Willie their star on the front line but positional changes to this Friday's lineup could keep the cameras guessing. Is Kate confirmed as going into the hooker spot? The dummy (better) half should feed some good lines. The bridesmaids will be attempting to outflank the Best Man with a few cutouts but he will be looking to provide good service in the centres. It seems that the bench players seem to be all the talk of the press but don't forget the impact the rev will have. Should be a huge match.

    Rumour has it the Chaser show was banned because Phil was planning on doing something similar.

    Just checked the TV guide-they've got the wedding on GEM from 730pm til 11pm!!Why stuff up the footy when the bloody wedding is ALREADY ON ONE OF THEIR CHANNELS??That's ABC 1,7,9 (7pm-830pm),GEM,10,and a couple of PAYTV channels showing it.I hope everyone watches it equally among ALL the channels,and NOONE wins the ratings battle.Better still,hopefully most watch it on pay,and the commercial channels (especially 9) suffer!!
