I have an interest in sports media and broadcasting as well as the business side of sports. The sports I follow in depth are F1, EPL, AFL, Cricket, Rugby League and Rugby Union. Ive been a Foxtel subscriber for 20 years and a SCG member for the past 11 years.

To answer your question. No, nobody cares.

Does anyone care that Macarthur are a decent football team?

No. We don’t need drug dealers in the game.

Jarrod Mullen: A rare case of a deserved second chance

I’m not suggesting we give them out. They were once part of our society and cricketers have them. Hence I asked the question.

Three Australian cricketers who deserved a knighthood

He works all over the world and is in high demand. If he was hopeless he wouldn’t get the work. Where’s Michael Clarke on TV these days?

It’s a pity Waugh has priced his book out of the reach of most. $249 for a picture book is a bit steep for most.

Many think Botham is a bogan. Many of the West Indian knights are confessed Rastafarian and many music knights have a long drug history. So your point is what exactly?

Say what you like, but I love watching English Premiership rugby. Tough footy and its on Fox.

English rugby is leading us back to the light (no, really)

I think the more important question is will anyone be watching. One game of Super rugby free to air and yet another subscription to watch the rest. Interesting times ahead.

Will the Waratahs taste Super Rugby success in 2021?

I met Frank after a Socceroos game at Parramatta Stadium in the late 80’s. I still have is and Frank Farina’s autograph.

Vale Frank Arok: A man ahead of his time

Correct to an extent. They never trained as a team and trained in groups. A bit hard to gel in conditions like thistle I’d imagine.

Watching cricket in COVID times

No one knows yet.

New era in rugby broadcasting to begin on Nine

It wasn’t a comparison. It was a way to pose an example of what I was outlining.

Do titles matter to the GOAT?

Cheers. I appreciate the support.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 6, the winner is...

Thanks for the comments. I agree that being a team in a capital city helps. On that metric Newcastle and Canberra should be rich even though they are a 1 team regional team.

Cant answer that but he played his junior footy at Old Bar.

No idea what that means but at least I got you to read all 6. Cheers.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 5

On the back of that company getting knocked back by countries around the world to install 5G networks due to security concerns with China. It’s a pity that took on a sponsor with a bad international reputation.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 4

Fair comment but Ive rated the teams on the here and now not 10 years time.

As an aside and it didn’t influence the ranking, when I sent this in I did so without adding that the Knights have now been bought by the powerful Wester Suburbs Leagues Club in Newcastle. They are the biggest club in town and own several other clubs other than the one at New Lambton and are loaded. They will be building a Centre of Excellence in conjunction with the NSW govt and as is seen by signing Ponga to a rich deal they are prepared to spend.

I think the Sydney GF thing is more about tradition. That said the NSW govt pays for it to stay in the city so you may be right. In other sports such as the FA Cup Final, thats always at Wembley bar when it was being rebuilt. The Super Bowl gets shopped around each year and the AFL GF never leaves Melbourne.
