    Don't know the full details but the BCCI and Nimbus haven't been on great terms for a while. This lawsuit from Nimbus is just a counter to that to get whatever they can.

    TV executives know full well the best sides won't be put out when they sign deals. And as a fan, I see the bigger picture. It is one game out of how many this summer? If Tendulkar wasn't on 99 hundreds, it wouldn't be an issue.

    First off, Greig shouldn't be allowed to be associated with international cricket. He was a big player in a league that threatened the future of the game.

    Secondly, whoever this McNamara character is, he can jog on as well. I'm sick of TV execs who now think they are bigger than the game and have it by the plums simply because they have the bucks.

    It's going to happen IMO, though the talk about stars not playing is just bluster. The NRL opener will rate way higher than a bog standard ODI, particularly if it's a dead rubber. The decision won't be any more complicated than that.

    Come on Ausage, once again I am not saying the cricket should be on 9 ahead of the NRL.

    I am saying the cricket should be live on GEM when the NRL is on. Not on bloody delay after the rugby.

    Has there actually been any suggestion at all of Nine showing the ODI on delay though?

    They'll show the ODI either side of the NRL game on Nine, and while the NRL is on they'll stick the ODI on GEM. I haven't heard any suggestion of a delay so far from anyone other than you.

    Why would I make this up? It's in the article Nnanden linked to.

    Concerns over the rotation policy have come at an inopportune time for CA, with the last game before the tri-series finals shown on delay in NSW and Queensland because of a clash of scheduling with round one of the NRL.
    Nine is debating whether to show both the Friday-night clash at the MCG and the NRL blockbuster between Brisbane and Parramatta on its main digital channel rather than offload the game to one of its secondary channels and leave viewers with analogue televisions unable to watch. However, this would mean the cricket would be shown on delay, angering CA.

    Yeah I can't really see them putting it 'against' each other, so delay seems likely, which is a disgrace obv.

    Nah, we just have a problem with clear communication

    My point was more about the fact that 9 do what they want due to ratings. If they feel they'll get higher numbers by putting on the cricket after the NRL then that's what they'll do. They likely feel that putting the cricket on alongside the footy will cause a drop in numbers for both shows, and I reckon they're correct. I for one am more likely to watch the cricket because of this. Doesn't make it right, and it sucks for the cricket fan who isn't interested in RL but they're just looking at numbers.

    Isn't there a law that having the rights to sporting events of national signifigance forces you to use them live (or close to) if you have the capacity? Would have thought an international cricket match fell into the national signifigance category, and with Gem they're certainly capable.

    EDIT: or what benchy said above me.
