Virutally, a full house; actually, a stupid idea:
CHANNEL Nine has revealed a bold plan to repackage its Monday night programming with live AFL matches complete with virtual crowds.
Nine's executive director Jeff Browne said Monday night football was likely to underpin its push for a slice of the next AFL broadcast rights deal from 2012, but he regarded it as primarily a television game in which he would compensate for half-full stadiums with virtual crowds.
What's wrong with painting the seats like the Gabba, or giving free tickets to school kiddies like they used to do at the SCG?
Would they show it virutally live? Like they do now.
