The A-League has by no means a vast amount of clear air. I would go as far to say it has the most to compete with during the summer compared to winter.

A-League crowds are a concern, even if the football is fine

And I’m sure you’re primarily referencing the EPL. Look at how much of a grip of the FA have on football in their country. Also look at despite how great the EPL is, England by no means have benefited. The A-League on the other hand has. Can’t have your cake and eat it too.

“It’s the clubs responsibility to promote their own team locally, not the FFA.” In part you are correct, however the FFA, being the ruler of the League, also has equal responsibility.

Until head office is sorted out, I do not expect much effort from clubs. And why should they, the FFA doesn’t care. It appears both parties are at loggerheads and will do anything to cut their own noses off to spite their own faces.

Agreed. If football could get it’s act together, there would be even more alarm bells ringing for those that would find other reasons to come and criticise. Makes it more sweet to watch and simply say the famous words of “I told you so.”

Expansion would assist in this. Versing each team 3 times in a season can get rather tiresome, however, if you’re already feeling a sense of sameness, then I would suggest you’re overlooking the quality of imports, the improved overall standard, the opportunity in which each team has a genuine chance, unlike other footballing competitions. Smell the roses every once and a while. It may look the same, but nothing beats the experience.

Well said TPC.

Highly doubt that, for tv ratings both on Fox and FTA are not indicative of such a large drop.

Mike, you’ve only just touched the surface of the problems plaguing football in this country. It isn’t enough is worry we’ll end up like the NSL, but it’s still concern enough.

Some very interesting times ahead.

Also agree.

It is.

Versed them prior to the 2010 world cup if I recall correctly.

We played frantic football. Forced the issue. And it was Thailand!

Where have all The Roar's old readers gone?

Just saying hello. Jeez.

It's time to build a bridge between old soccer and new football

Hi Fuss, ?.

It's time to build a bridge between old soccer and new football

I look forward to it.

What about it?

“…replicate the success of the BBL.” Replicate means to do the same. It wasn’t made clear whether that would be exact same figures BBL achieves or if we would achieve a similar increase from FoxSports numbers. Do I think we can achieve 300k in average viewing audiences? Yes. Do I think we can achieve BBL numbers? No. Is your example more specific? Yes. Didnt I respond to Grobbelaar’s very unspecific post? Yes. Stop looking to start arguments. You’re a pain to talk too when you haven’t had a Snickers.

What was said was “There is a strong chance that we will replicate the success of the BBL.” So you’re suggesting similar viewing figures? There is no evidence to suggest network 10 can replicate what they did with the BBL at all. We can hope they will be able to replicate, but there is no “strong chance” it’ll be done again. Nothing to compare it too at all.

Go away. It does matter. For if for some miracle, network 10 do retain BBL, it would be interesting to see how they’re manage both sports with regards to broadcast. You’re also more than aware I’m a football supporter so cut the BS.

Food for thought. With Network 10 acquiring rights to broadcast the A-League, what does this mean with regard to their chances of retaining the BBL rights? Are we about to hear an announcement that channel 9 have acquired the BBL rights? I dare say yes.

Similar products? What would you compare it too? The BBL? What I said makes perfect sense.

Because 10 are essentially taking what many may perceive to be a risk.

A-League football moves to Channel Ten under new deal

I doubt this very much. There is no evidence to suggest such an increase.

No I haven’t. Link please?
