Sorry if I sound frustrated but I'm in Adelaide and I am not getting much coverage here - even Foxsports was selective about match highlights and they only showed some footage via a Story based on today's Parra fan day! So please advise when and if and how we can see the boys. I'm coming to Sydney for the May 24th match vs NQ at Leichhardt. I came up for last year's thriller vs Warriors - note to the Caterers - the beer ran out on the Hill by Half Time!

This is the situation. The video was posted to weststigers.com.au around 6:20pm, and bigpond's system is terribly slow and is yet to publish the video. Once the video is live on the site, I can make my video live on my youtube channel.

It's coming I promise, but technology is not playing nice.

the NRL should move away from the Bigpond template sites anyway. AFL are in the process of doing the same and have plans to broadcast all their matches within their website by 2015... if the NRL don't they'll fall behind because this Bigpond crap can't be relied on.

Until Telstra are non major sponsors of the game, we won't see Bigpond removed.

Thanks for the info and thanks for your effort to produce this - I know how tricky it can be - I tried to produce my own video from the 2005 GF (Remember when we were young!) that Benji miracle pass to Pat Richards - trouble is I stuffed the recording up 'cos I was jumping up and down so much in the Olympic Stadium! Cheers

It does take a bit to make a video like that, especially doing graphics over the top. But I know the fans appreciate it and that is why I do it. The NRL clubs don't really do anything like this. It's now been three hours since the video was put into the Bigpond system, and nothing still.

Hopefully it appears tonight, I'm sure you will enjoy them once they are there.

Good on you and thanks again for the feedback. Yeas and Fan Day is now frozen - bloody frustrating!

No worries azsportza. You are doing a great job. All of us supporters are grateful for what you are doing.

There is a major problem with it all. No idea what it's taking so long, but I have been in contact with the digital guy from Tigers and it's just sitting in the system, Bigpond doing nothing about it.

I know you all are very grateful for having video, and it's coming - We're not holding out on it. If it was up to me, the video would be live already - But as it happened, Bigpond sucks.

Telstra pay Big Bucks to be associated and we should respect that.

This work is actually done by a different company and housed in Bigpond world.

Unfortunately in the digital world that is guilt by association.

Bigpond McSuck for content distribution.

Aza, just out of interest, why can't you put it up on your blog first? Are you somewhat contracturly obligated to someone?
