Punter it’s a no-brainer as to where funding should go from the govt. People like Sam Kerr and Ange all started here in local leagues. And look where they are now. Opening up Australia to the world. People coming here to watch games (WC’s, Asia Cups, touring teams) etc. If we didn’t have the Sam Kerr’s and Anges, there is no way we’d get the types of games and tournaments that we have been getting. Why waste money on some coke snor ting wannabe who’s dreams are of playing for a Melbourne suburb to play against….another Melbourne suburb. The parasites at the AFL have squeezed way too much money out of the taxpayers. If you’re so rich, stay out of our back pockets.

A-Leagues facing financial oblivion, or just spiteful anti-football media seeking an easy kill?

Exactly right. Why would the owners be signing up players (ie money going out) if it was about to fold. That’s illogical.
The APL might one day fold (hopefully) but there will always be a professional league here. The haters just have to live with that.
It’ll be here longer than Rothfield – that’s a give un.

AJ73 apparently football is bigger in PNG than league. So could the money be better spent on getting their football sorted rather than a league team?
Imagine Australia helping PNG make a WC? Or Asia Cup?

Garang Kuol is miles away from Premier League breakthrough

Not sure I agree about the Matildas effect dropping off. The majority of what you see at Matildas games are young females. I don’t think they even care too much about the result or the opposition. They just want to see female, global superstars wearing Australian colours. What other sport do we have that in? I read an article the other day about women’s rugby league SOO and how they can one day be as popular as the Matildas. I mean seriously.

Punter it’s pointless talking to the AFL zombies that infest this tab with their useless offerings. How boring must it be in the fishbowl world that is AFL?
They have nothing better to do?
What is obvious though is that a lot of young people just don’t read the rubbish Mudrake press. And the Mudrakes are all here in Australia to slash costs due to dwindling profits/escalating losses in their gutter press.
I’m sure we don’t have to put up with that monster for much longer? I mean how old is Mudrake?

A-Leagues facing financial oblivion, or just spiteful anti-football media seeking an easy kill?

That is true. It annoys the heck out of me why we cant have H,A,H,A etc.
It can’t be that hard!

The same whining goes on in Spain (where Real Madrid and Barcelona), Italy (Juve) etc seem to get all the preferential treatment with scheduling.
It’s about maximising crowds, TV audiences etc. Small clubs just don’t bring in the same amount of dollars.

A-Leagues facing financial oblivion, or just spiteful anti-football media seeking an easy kill?

I don’t think we need to worry. Phil Rothfield is a known sokkah hater. He is like 80yo in the shade so we have to forgive him as he is probably a little senile. Along with his readers. All 100 of them.

Good numbers. Let me guess, the over 60’s were watching ch 7? : )

Edmondson brace caps epic Grand Final comeback as Mariners seal historic treble

I was responding to Waz and what do you care?
Is the AFL comp finished already?

Edmondson brace caps epic Grand Final comeback as Mariners seal historic treble

No, Melbourne have their own superstars, genuine ones at that, legends etc.
They would be competing with the NSW and QLD superstars to make WC’s and win a treasure trove of Olympics golds.

Grem if those other superstars and legends from the other games were playing football and going to the Olympics we’d be winning WC’s and gold medals in the 100 meters!
Watch SOO suck the life out of everything for the next 3 months as the bo gans lose their heads at how important and fantastic it all is.
True legends and immortals.

Garang Kuol is miles away from Premier League breakthrough

Excellent point Grem. He was probably in the top 3 performers in that side, so if he wont make it, like you said, get rid of them all.
Not sure what a striker is meant to do feeding off scraps from a totally outplayed team behind him.
But hey, Sam Brown says he isn’t going to make it so…

Garang Kuol is miles away from Premier League breakthrough

It probably was unnecessary but knowing the general demeanour of the Victory fans he was probably giving it back to them. So you’re saying, they can give it, but they can’t take it?

Edmondson brace caps epic Grand Final comeback as Mariners seal historic treble

Exactly right Waz.
You’d have to say that the GF would have pulled in way over a million viewers.
Mainly a young audience too as opposed to the rusted on dinosaurs on Ch 7 and Fox.
Like AR on here who never has anything positive to say about aussie soccer.

Edmondson brace caps epic Grand Final comeback as Mariners seal historic treble

I agree with you but playing someone in a friendly doesn’t lock them in for that country. Has to be a competitive match.
But yes like Circati, Nestor needs to be picked so he can feel the love so to speak.

A-League All Stars embarrass Newcastle youth 8-0 for first ever victory

LH – Christo is one of those “sport” followers that Grem mentioned

A-League All Stars embarrass Newcastle youth 8-0 for first ever victory

Lol – thats right Grem. If the A League all stars had been beaten 8-0 all those “sports” followers would be on here full of vitriol for the A League.

A-League All Stars embarrass Newcastle youth 8-0 for first ever victory

You mean like the ABC? Taxpayer funded ABC that is the mouthpiece for the AFL? I don’t think they report on the soccer any more unless there’s something negative to report on.

A-League All Stars embarrass Newcastle youth 8-0 for first ever victory

They were my thoughts as well. They underestimated how good the A League players would be. They should have known they’d be in for a real contest after the scare they gave Barcelona. Next time, don’t put your youth team out there and pay the game some respect.

…and you couldn’t find 2 more disparate coaches. To label Klopp an underachiever is just plain wrong. The guy has won everything in the hugely competitive Euro leagues. And so has Liverpool.
Arthur in the NRL has not won anything.
So I’m not sure the angle of this article.
But thanks for the read ????

Oh dear has Tuffnose blown a fuse again?
The tro ll who has zero credibility. Laughs at the A League for its lack of quality but wets himself as to how good our super megastars are in AFL.

First to get caught lol

Premier League and Brazil star latest to be charged over allegations he deliberately received yellow cards

I guess my point was it’s a lot easier to fix than trying to fix the result. And the player is probably thinking – “hey it’s not like I’m throwing the game. It’s just a meaningless yellow”.
If people weren’t dumb enough to bet on this it wouldn’t exist.

Premier League and Brazil star latest to be charged over allegations he deliberately received yellow cards

Anyone dumb enough to actually bet on yellow cards deserves to lose their money.
It’s a no-brainer for unscrupulous players as well. Doesn’t really affect the outcome of a game (in most cases) and you can act as an individual without the need to rope in your team mates when receiving the card.
