Are broadcasters faking crowd footage to make up for poor attendances at NRL games?
That was the claim recently made by Seven News, surrounding an NRL match on Friday 16 June on FOX Sports.
A FOX Sports spokesperson told TV Tonight, “During the Rabbitohs v Titans Round 15 simulcast 8pm match, a producer aired archived vision after failing to time out the half time break. It was an error in judgment which we have addressed. This is not a regular practice of FOX Sports.”
