New Zealand take the Cup

I intend doing a story summarising the good and the bad of the tournament, but without going into too much detail here, having seen the Cup first hand, I don't think the AFL did a bad job of promoting it. There was paid advertising, the draw went out in 10s of 1000s of AFL Records, Adrian Anderson's weekly press conference was held at the opening to force the media there, and there was reasonable media coverage in terms of print media articles, and I believe there were snippets on free to air TV and quite a bit on FOXFooty. The reality appears to be that the majority of Melbourne football supporters aren't interested if it isn't the top AFL level. Sure the AFL good do more, but they have other competing interests that want money. Anyway, I'll discuss my thoughts in more detail later.

Is there any word yet as to when a full replay of the match will be available either over the internet, on DVD or on Fox Footy? I was one of the Goal Umpires who umpired the Grand Final and it was an experience I enjoyed very much.
