The Spanish government funded Real Madrid for many years rather then the f a
That’s the government remember giving millions to a soccer club to make them the best in Spain ( better then the Catalan) and Europe

Maybe that’s why football is number 1

Is the A-League overrated by people who like it or underrated by people who don’t?

Surely this tag of ultras means like the Melbourne rebels need to renamed

Back to the past , but how could a club like Chelsea with a nickname of the pensioners form ultras

I agree they have overkilled the A league derby. I certainly don’t watch them as a neutral anymore

I agree afl is international..
But we cannot beat the amateurs from Ireland

As I proud North Melbourne fan I can tell you Australia does have a national afl team
Although not a true World Cup, our all Aussie team regularly plays Ireland , the amateurs from Ireland have often beaten Australia’s best in these test matches.

From my information

Millions of Australians care about rugby union and rugby league

Rugby in Australia overachieved

.. for a century against the national teams of England wales South Africa , countries that had more players and little competition from rugby league for talent
Rugby in Australia is far from dead . The standard isn’t terrible , it just hadn’t progressed as rapidly as the all blacks and England wales and Ireland
Probably need to invest in some New Zealand coaching at juniors level

I hope we get electrici elimination finals like 1991 South Melbourne v Adelaide city and Marconi v parramatta
13 goals in those matches

Or a wsw v roar 5-4 cliffhanger scenario

Can the finals help rekindle some interest in the A-League?

I don’t think he meant soccer fans had violent tendencies
Surely a post would be moderated if he said that

Why are you comparing the A league to the nrl?
Why does it matter the knights are more popular, I don’t think any jets fans care that the knights are bigger

I love rugby soccer and rugby league , so last week I watched all of the above sports as many people can do on any weekend in Newcastle

I think they are both crowd figures are good tbh .

While I admire her courage, I think the correct decision has been made

There are other women in society who have all kinds of bodies , maybe disabilities that impair them from running an 800 metres . A lot of those other women’s circumstances are far more serious and tragic then Semenya

Caster Semenya loses landmark case – possibly ending her career

You said
they’re simply not a fundamental part of their community in the same way J. League clubs are.

My club the Newcastle Jets are absolutely a fundamental part of the community and also had this support in the nsl era too. This is a club that’s essentially 40 years old going back to the start of the Nsl .
We have history and it takes time and generations to form this identity ,

The old timers can also talk proudly about all the legends of past such as ray basrtz who went to man utd and Craig Johnson who won a champions league with Liverpool .
Then we have other legends like Col Curran , joe senkalski , Kenny Bowden , Roy drinkwater, the older Boogards and cowburns , David Lowe , Mcbreen, then griffo , Nikki Carle Milton Rodriguez etc
The kids these days talk about Joey Champness and Petratos as their new local heroes .
In the future those kids will drag along their mates to the game and etc with future generations.
This is how a community club is built

We feel an ownership of our club.

It’s your comment
I’m just asking you to elaborate

Do you think some investors are swayed ? Who

If the A-League did have relegation, perhaps the bottom four should all go?

Not true nick

Jets have been wooden spooners and still held roughly the same average crowds

They won’t be sacking merrick imo

Lets hear some solutions for the problems you see at Newcaste ??
If merrick was sacked , who comes in
The Chinese owner is not spending money, so offload these players, who do we get instead?

If we had a top 4 final system, the rest of the season would be far more interesting, with the possibility of city , Adelaide or Wellington fighting for 4 th

As for relegation battles. . I’m not against it , but it’s usually just delaying the inevitable for a poor club who bounce up and down divisions. I’m guessing pro/ rel will happen, but might be 10 years away , and is this what fans or the poorer clubs want ?? Not sure , maybe, being a yo yo club could be interesting for some .
Or will relegation see the demise of some clubs ..
It’s really an unknown .

You get your Leicester city miracles ( double relegation/ double promoted/ champions). once in a lifetime

or man city ( double relegation 20 years ago). renaissance ……
and I guess these are the storyline’s thst would infatuate football supporters in Australia were similar to occur .

Top 4 I like

2 legged playoff games 1v 4 . 2v 3

Jets crowds have held up ok despite a average season so far.

Considering the jets home gsmes
2 x Wednesday,
1 x Thursday and
0 x Friday night games yet
Only 2 Saturday home games all year , which is the best time for crowds .

When clubs are actually allowed to select the day for their own home games will be a good thing for football.

Fadida

A wise man told me to have a more positive mindset about Australian football, so with that in mind .
I totally believe the Ffa is capable of setting up a second division with pro / rel . I’m also confident that the clubs who paid 15 million dollars liscence fees will not fight pro : rel and accept any losses as just part of the game .
Re the jets , have to see it more positively that Merrick and the players you called out for poor performance are more then capable of winning silverware this season, not even considering their release for next season. All Brazilians can score goals and understand your frustration but Jair is quality and will end up with 15 goals this season. As for Georgievski, he will be winning his second Marsden medal on Grand final day .

The crowds in the Victoria footy comps were minuscule years ago and bad in the 80s. Yet are at very good levels now
That doesn’t seem to work with your theory . Or is it just soccer and basketball are not capable of victtype crowd increase

How to get better A-League crowds and TV ratings

I haven’t seen the decision yesterday , but most jets fans said it wasn’t a penalty anyhow.

But the jets had 3 penalties not given in one game against Mrlbourne city , plus 2 other howlers , which were identical to penalties that same referee had given to other teams , the jets got lucky only once against ccm when they scored an offside goal.

The bottom 4 teams this year have been slaughtered by bad decisions, but in no way saying that any of those teams would be higher on the ladder, but they are definitely getting the worst decisions . The worst decision in football history was the var a league grand final glitch .. so Ernie Merrick has every right to not trust the var .

If you read Ben Wilson referee reports each week , there are lots of admissions of mistakes from the var occurring .

It’s just not working ..

Jets, City fuming at VAR calls in A-League

So the lesson in this

Get rid of the var ?

Or
give each team only 2 reviews ( var challenges ) per game as seems to work well in Nfl and cricket .
