Why Billy Slater isn't entitled to his fairytale ending


I thought Telstra were live streaming the A league this year

Yes Optus does a good job for the epl , but I haven’t heard anything about what they are doing in the future for A league.
It would have been fantastic if the A league was included in the Optus package and the A league started in August the same as the epl . Then the A league could have piggy backed customers and shared the hype . Of course to do that we need roughly 16–18 team competition to make it happen.

Back to the original post, I cannot be as critical of Foxtel A league coverage , having grown up in a era of sbs nsl replays from Marconi stadium at 11 pm on a Sunday night . Foxtel are giving more to the A league then there getting back at the moment.

New stadiums alone won't solve attendance woes

#FreeBilly! Storm the courts if you must, Melbourne

Both stadiums were full . That means at capacity .

Kogarah and Leichhardt will be terrific venues for Sydney tc

New stadiums alone won't solve attendance woes

I’ve done hundreds of trips to the parramatta stadium ( Cumberland oval ). over the years , can’t wait until the eels and wsw are back at home .

As for getting to Moore park for football cricket and league, it’s something I’ve given up on , although the new lane cove tunnel does make the drive better coming from the north .

I do have sympathy with people from Sydney as the transport is a nightmare and I totally understand staying at home and watching on tv . Also rugby league and union come across on tv pretty well with the rectangular field . But building another stsgium at Moore park is lunacy ,

Yeah. Its all fox sports fault , and Optus is doing so much for the A league.

What Collingwood and west coast did is execute the skills of marking and kicking very well . That can’t be said of any other finals teams , as the skill level has generally been abysmal.

Mason cox a third year player did the basics well , unlike the other far more experienced players from Richmond .

Nothing in the AFL makes sense anymore

Wow. The autumn sun is a special horse

“Mason Cox showed how easy this game is “.

Great comment

Ta-ta, Tigers! Collingwood in grand final after flipping flag favourites

Spot on Paul

Slater is guilty but shouldn’t miss the grand final

Agree la liga is a frighteningly bad example

You have summed it up very well

Is that Kevin Muscat making a tackle in your photo . It’s a classic Muscat pose .

Good one.

Another bit of Ffa scheduling incompetence.

On the back of a 30000 gf crowd and massive interest in the Newcastle Jets , one would think a first round home game involving a Sydney or wsw bringing away fans would almost sell out .
But no , let’s make the jets play away for 2 weeks starting at Wellington …
then give them a home game in November.
The mind boggles .

Who said the epl would fail ? When it seperate from the FA .
It was a safe bet that the premier league would flourish . Murdoch took over sport with little anti syphoning restrictions as far as I know . … buddy could probably answer that better then me.

The English clubs instantly had massive money from Murdoch tv and started signing players Klinnsman , Zola etc . and they dropped the 3 foreigner rule so their clubs could compete in the champions league .

Does anyone see that massive money being injected into the A league??
Where is this coming from
That’s the mystery of the clubs being in total control. Where is the pot of gold .

And if there is a pot of gold , does it trickle down.??

While I’m no fan of the

I don’t know or expect that if the clubs gain control of A league that we see a better picture.

It pains me to think that we have a competition that is dominated by the richest clubs who stockpile all the good players..,.,,,And even if it’s shared between the 4 wealthy Sydney and Melbourne clubs , that’s not going to spike a dramatic increase in viewership.

Anyhow, my hope is that in 10 years time we are not scratching our heads thinking it’s still stuffed.
Soccer along with cricket and league , rugby are the best sports in Australia, just hope it survives this war to remain a successful pro sport in this country.

The Victorian 2 Nd division sounds about the right level for Scott miller at the moment as a coach. He did a reasonable job at the jets but he needs to build his resume with more experience before he reaches A league level again .

It’s looking like a season where the richest clubs will fight out the prize . Now unless these big city clubs can increase their fan base and ratings this year , I don’t believe they will get any improvement in a t v deal . As Optus is only for European fans or international and doesn’t support the A league, and Fox is doing well with Nrl and possibly cricket .
We will get our promotion and relegation 2 tired league soon , but I don’t expect it to be fully professional as the tv funds won’t be available.

Yes to Wollongong

No to southern franchise

What the FFA doesn't care about in A-League expansion

I agree the field goal is ridiculous imo
, but some people like it .

Four rule changes for rugby league

I should be doing this .
