"They've competed, they're exhausted, the last thing they want is standing in a field for an hour, waiting to get in to a Closing Ceremony". In an unusual move, the television rights-holders Channel Seven joined in the criticism, saying the ceremony "had not lived up to expectations".

"Now, did we get it wrong?"

"We knew at that meeting that the organisers were going to try something different, by not having the athletes enter the stadium in the main show which started at 8.30pm, and that they would already be there".

"I'm sorry, you're being way too polite", she said.

"Should've they been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast?"

"They made the decision not to show the flagbearers". Young athletes were given a chance to experience and prove themselves in multi event competitions and in quite a few competitions they came out with flying colours. We missed out on all of that. There's no athletes in here.

The closing ceremony was held at Carrara Stadium and was produced by Jack Morton Worldwide in which the Australian pop stars Guy Sebastian, Samantha Jade, Dami Im and the Veronicas performed.

"Personally, everyone just gets together. It takes a great team to make a champion", she said.

Following outrage from viewers and even the Channel Seven broadcasters, chairman Peter Beattie apologised for the "stuff up" on Monday morning claiming the decision was driven by athlete welfare. So we were not able to bring you any pictures because we did not have pictures available to us to bring you. We weren't allowed to put it in the ceremony. So Kurt actually did have his moment with his teammates which was important.

"From the average knowledge of what I have, we have done better here than what we did in Glasgow".

Canadian flag-bearer Erica Wiebe was positive on social media.

Images of joyous athletes filing in behind their nations' flags have been a feature of closing ceremony broadcasts at Commonwealth and Olympic Games for decades.

"We got cued in in our earpieces and told "10 minutes to air, five minutes to air, two minutes to air okay, we're on air" and then the athletes were cued in". Of course. We got it wrong. It's so wrong Baz. "I can't be more honest about it than that", he told Sunrise. We've never seen a stadium as empty as this.

This is by no means uncommon, Closing Ceremony's a usually less spectacular affairs.

Many athletes and fans left the closing ceremonies early, according to reports. Including the Birmingham presentation.

"The speeches were too many and too long".

"The kids had a pretty good time, they were really energetic and enthusiastic", she said.

Zempilas: It was not necessary.

Griggs: The Games have been brilliant.

Athletes sit at the back of the stadium during the performances. The camaraderie, the fellowship.
