I've seen the past

Tonight is the equivalent of superbowl, at least for many Australians. And if you aren't watching on TV, or listening on radio, can you find the updates scores?

Not on your nelly. The sites that usually carry live updates don't have it (I can only assume a licensing issue where the NRL carries them), including the joint partnership between the network carrying it, and Microsoft, NineMSN (here I guess it is a 'commercial' decision). Maybe the NRL sites is carrying it, but the site is effectively down, swamped by Traffic I'd say.

This is the past folks. Next year, dozens of sites will carry updates live, right off radio and TV, and we'll know in advance to bookmark them.

As Prince didn't once say, 'I've seen the future past, and boy it's rough'.
