AFL and ESPN in US / Canada TV rights deal

I'm left out. This new deal can hardly be called coverage! I've gone from two matches per week to NONE. I live in an area with no access to ESPN360 and no hope of getting it. There are no games scheduled on ESPN2 that I can find either. Thank you so much AFL and ESPN! Seems to me if a broadcaster, ESPN, acquires the rights to air a particular show/event, AFL, and then does not make an effort to place the show/event on the air, that broadcaster is trying reduce interest in the said show/event. I am completely perplexed by this turn of events. What are they thinking? Is this supposed to be the best they can do? I can't believe that I've been cut out of AFL viewership. Stunned. That's the word. Stunned.

This sounds pretty poor.

I can see their thinking to a point that on-demand TV and broadcasting via the net is probably the future, but the present deal doesn't seem to benefit anyone.

But, they won't change anything unless they start getting a lot of complaints... so if everyone who's effected starts sending them emails and ringing them, it might push something.
