We want proper Olyroos coverage at the Olympics.

It seems Channel 7 have screwed football yet again with the recent announcement of their Olyroos coverage during the Olympic games. They have retained coverage rights for Olyroos games and will not be showing them LIVE or even showing the games in their entirety. This is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH! What we have to \"look forward\" to: vs Serbia - Shown in full, but on an approx. 2 hour delay, depending on exactly when the AOC announces its Flag Bearer for the Opening Ceremony (and this announcement will be LIVE and uninterrupted). vs Argentina - They have the option to switch across to heats of the swimming with about 15 minutes of the match remaining. They are keeping their options open as to what they will actually show on the night. vs Ivory Coast - For the first 15 minutes of this match Channel Seven will have to choose between the Olyroos and other events. After 15 minutes coverage will be shared between the Olyroos and the Opals (Woman\'s Basketball). We want to see Australia\'s Olympic football games shown LIVE and in full.
