It's then that the normally bubbly and optimistic Griggs lashed out at the Games, in particular the ceremony's broadcasters. 'To be perfectly honest Jo, so have we.

"The athletes have had a great experience but they've also performed to their expectations and above ours", he said.

Griggs defended Channel Seven by saying: 'People are thinking Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes.

"People are angry that athletes weren't part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast on Seven".

The decision was a creative one by GOLDOC, not the faut of the host broadcaster.

"Again, we got that wrong".

Koch was particularly scathing about Jack Morton Events as "not even being part of the Commonwealth".

Sunrise's David Koch called Mr Beattie out over the excuse of considering the "welfare of athletes", with previous closing ceremonies always featuring the athletes. The result represents a slope for Team Nigeria who finished at eighth position at the last edition of the games in 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Mumbrella has contacted Jack Morton Events for comment.

In a sensational mistake by organisers, the big finale turned into a shambles taking the shine off a successful Commonwealth Games for the hosts.

Former Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolts plays the DJ desks during the closing ceremony. "The speeches, look we understand the dignitaries need to get their messages out there, including the Birmingham presentation", Zempilas said.

Griggs said she had never seen a stadium so empty halfway through a ceremony, while Zempilas noted that most of the athletes left during the ceremony.

"Having them come in to the stadium in the pre-show meant the TV audience were not able to see the athletes enter the stadium, alongside flag bearers", Goldoc chairman Peter Beattie tweeted on Monday.

"With over half the athletes scheduled to depart the Gold Coast tomorrow, it is understandable that large numbers of athletes chose to depart the ceremony early, to prepare for their journey or attend their own team celebrations", it said.

"While the curtains come down on this Games, the future of sports in the Commonwealth is very bright indeed, in fact, in 2018 the Commonwealth and Commonwealth Sports are more relevant than ever before".

He was among those to speak along with Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Louise Martin and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, given the chance to address the crowd after organisers had refused to break protocol to allow her to do so at the Opening Ceremony on April 4.
