Karmichael Hunt debut on ABC TV in Victoria

General News

Despite the TV guides indicating the Werribee vs Geelong would be the ABC TV VFL match for broadcast this Saturday, a late change has seen ABC now set to broadcast the Karmichael Hunt VFL debut from Craigieburn. The telecast is for ABC in Melbourne and presumably across Victoria, as well as a live online stream to Australia. A few days later it should also be viewable across Australia online from the ABC's iview.

As reported in Fairfax - Coburg, and Craigieburn, prepare for Hunt's debut:

Coburg general manager Lee Fraser successfully lobbied AFL Victoria to get the game televised on the ABC, saying Hunt's debut "was just too good an opportunity to miss." The Geelong v Werribee game was originally scheduled for broadcast, and still appears on the VFL's website as the appointed match, but the ABC will telecast the Coburg v Gold Coast match from 1pm on ABC1, and will be live streaming on its website to the rest of Australia. The game starts at 1.10pm.

It is unfortunate that the ABC doesn't allow these games to be viewed outside Australia.

Carna Revos!

Hunt kicked two goals around the 7 minute mark of the first quarter after he ran into an open goal (and kicked it) and was pushed in the back and got a second kick. People still lining up to get into the ground half way into the first quarter.

Some of the footage of Hunt is at http://www.afl.com.au/video/tabid/76/...fault.aspx

I'm not sure whether that is visible outside of Australia - at some stages over the past few years it has and other times not.
