Blame the SCG Trust for the size

Sydney is way too lucky when it comes to public funding for football stadiums

30K is good for the All Blacks but far to large for the Crusaders

A New Publicly Funded NFL Stadium in Buffalo that wont have a roof and have a capacity of 63K meaning it would be eligible to host a super bowl has just been approved

Cornwall is struggling to get public funding for a 10K Stadium that would host Cornish Pirates (Union 2nd Division), Truro City (Football 8th Division) and Cornwall RLFC (Rugby League 3rd Division)

UAP might get a Senate Seat in Victoria but that’s bugger all for $100 Million

If Wellington and Adelaide win this week there through to the Finals

If Central Coast win then Newcastle and Western Sydney are out of finals contention

Marcathur VS Newcastle is also an important game for Finals as If Marcathur lose they are done unless Central Coast lose as well, if Newcastle lose or draw they are done

If Western Sydney lose they are also done

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Match Week 25

The Americans that were behind the most recent Gold Coast bid are looking at buying Newcastle

What does Adelaide United's new ownership mean for the club - and for the A-League?

With AFC moving Champions League and AFC Cup to a Split Year Season any chance of moving Professional Football to Winter in Australia is now dead

'Look in our own backyard to develop the future': Leading TD calls for local hire as FA's 'disruptor'

It was Played on the Gold Coast at 7PM QLD time and unless its the Broncos people won’t turn up to sports in SEQ unless that team is winning its just how it is here

Roar are tough to get points against at Redcliffe its there home form that will save them from the Spoon

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Match week 20

Glory for the Spoon I reckon

I Live in Brisbane and can say that’s 100% true through the Reds could not sell out the Super Rugby AU Final last season

Eleven teams remain in the race for the A-League finals, but where are the fans?

At this point the Roar are going to get poor crowds no matter where they play at least playing at Redcliffe keeps the club afloat

Toulouse Olympique just got promoted to Super League but there looking like they will go straight back down so far

'It trumps league': Why don’t the media give rugby union a fair go?

Wont be better then Canada for much longer

We're about to find out if Australia truly is a football nation

Beat Japan and draw Saudi Arabia and hope Japan drop points to Vietnam otherwise draw Japan and Beat Saudi Arabia and hope either Japan loses to Vietnam or Saudi Arabia loses to China

6 Points gives the Aussies the best chance but 4 still gives the Aussies a chance, 3 points is also enough if Japan lose to Australia and Vietnam

Personally I think the Aussies will lose to Japan and Draw Saudi Arabia gaining just 1 point

We're about to find out if Australia truly is a football nation

No Australia needs 4 out of a possible 6 points to Qualify for the WC and they also have the most difficult remaining fixtures it just isnt going to happen

Even the A-League got more intrest and more money then Union did when it came to the most recent TV Rights deals and the A-League is a mess

'It trumps league': Why don’t the media give rugby union a fair go?

The Problem I see with Super Rugby is that its not treated like a proper professional sports league instead its just warm up for yearly tests NZ Rugby needs to allow at least some Kiwi players play for Aussie Teams and still be eligible for the All Blacks to make Super Rugby a but more interesting but that will never happen

Coopers Stadium and HBF Park are the only Stadiums in the League Built/Converted for Football but HBF was upgraded a few years after the Rectangular Conversion for Rugby Union

Every Other Stadium in the League was designed to either be Multi Purpose or built for another Sport

It's high time the A-Leagues showed the same passion they demand from fans

The only 4 Clubs that expressed intrest in the NSD from QLD were Peninsula Power, Gold Coast United, Sunshine Coast FC and Wynnum Wolves out of those 4 only Power and GCU play in NPLQ but Gold Coast United did not sign off on the Final Report meaning there no longer interested/no longer in contention for NSD, Sunshine Coast FC play in QPL which is Queensland’s 2nd division and Wynnum just got relegated to QPL2 which is Queensland’s 3rd Division that only leaves Peninsula Power but there based out at Redcliffe where the Roar currently play and play at AJ Kelly Park which just down the road from Moreton Daily Stadium

NPL 'Champions League' format likely to be initial second division structure

The “Champions League” format would be perfect for a expanded NPL Finals Series

I also think that in QLD we need 2 NPLS 1 for Southern Queensland and a NPL for Northern and Central QLD

I found this info on Reddit and had a listen to the Knights Podcast on the NSD and it was interesting to say the least, Knights are one of the bigger and more ambitions clubs in QLD and they fact them and Lions weren’t involved in the NSD and Gold Coast United did not sign off on the final report says a lot IMO

Gold Coast Knights president on NSD: “It is doomed from the beginning”
Oz football is massively underreported Qld so it is no surprise that this got totally missed, but I think it is pretty significant that the president of Gold Coast Knights, one of the more ambitious and large clubs in South East Queensland NPL has a pretty cynical view on the chances of a NSD.

His thoughts are:

JJ will fold to views of AAC, bring in “B League” to undermine the A-League

Will effectively create two rival competitions, which is unsustainable and cause both to fold.

B League is great only for “about 8 clubs” which are Sydney and Melbourne based

GCK look to fellow Qld powerhouse club Lions FC (original owners of the Roar) for guidance and note that Lions have had nothing to do with AAFC/NSD during the whole process

He notes that GC United, who were part of the initial AAFC white paper, were not part of the final signature list of the recent AAFC NSD document, suggesting that even GCU aren’t interested in the competition.

I reckon Roman will end up buying either Zenit or one of the big Moscow Clubs in the RPL If he manages to offload Chelsea and that Russia will look into joining AFC regardless of if there UEFA ban is overturned or not
