chris if you take a drive around Perth you will see heaps of AFL and Union. Little soccer. Go country in WA and it’s all AFL

Have the A-League's ratings tanked because people no longer watch TV?

Channel 9 and 7 pay ‘rights’ to broadcast those codes. No cosy arrangements. Its’ called a business deal. Who pays to send the socceroos overseas to get booted out in the first round of the world cup? The Aussie tax payer, that’s who.

FFA have no home ground. Don’t own a stadium. Up until 2 years back they had no idea when to play the final.

“If the theory holds up, AFL and NRL ratings are about to take a monster slide.” So where is your evidence?

FTA in Perth for A-League Final was, wait for it 4,000

Have the A-League's ratings tanked because people no longer watch TV?

One minute your saying “But I know I can’t watch AFL or NRL” Then in the next breath “the quality of the AFL has noticeably declined” If you don’t watch, how do you know that it has declined?

How would you know what standard AFLX was if you didnt watch.

Japan is the template, but does our football culture allow us to follow it?

Glory top of table cant draw 10,000. So diluting the fan base will do what? Less at each game. Leading to one or both clubs going bust.

How a second A-League team in Perth would work

Don’t know where you live, but in WA the bias reporting is to the fore. Comments in the news that Stonnis was snubbed and that Starc should of been dumped. But that’s WA journalism for you

Australia vs Sri Lanka: Second Test preview and prediction

The A-League is so minor that it’s of little importance. Big crowds turn up for international exhibition games such as Man U etc,because of the standard. That is the key reason why A-League TV and gate attendances are dropping. As I have said before, Pay TV will not invest $$’s if there is no return on the investment. Basic economics. Expanding the A-League to either more teams or a 2nd division is only spreading the jam thinner. Consolidate and get the current teams to a good standard first.

The A-League has six months to save itself from oblivion

Tax payers funded broadcasters is only the ABC or SBS. The ABC would not consider as if has few non Australians watching. SBS have better quality programmes. Viewer numbers of the A-League shows that interest in soccer/football doesn’t warrant the coverage.

The Asian Cup is delivering on and off the park

Totally agree. Salary cap in the AFL with similar results. Makes for a more even and interesting competition.

Another Central Coast loss proves the A-League salary cap must go

By eliminating the salary cap it would turn the A League into the same as the EPL. Same clubs at the top due to having more money. The EPL has more spectors and receives a hack more via TV to be able to pay those ridiculously high payments to players

If he retires,can always go play soccer. There are always accepting show ponys. ALA Bolt

Is Nick Kyrgios the most overrated player in world tennis?

Sydney and Hawthorn in the 8. Geelong out. Looking forward to watching Cats matches and seeing the coach go of. Throwing the phone around the coaches box

The end of an era

If your not a follower of the national cricket team, which you have mentioned before on more than one occasion, then how did you know that they were humiliated by India. Doesn’t make sense.

Sometimes watching the Socceroos is like licking an ashtray

David Boon is enjoying match refereeing on overseas trips. Why give that up and face media criticism.

In the face of public anger, Australia's selectors finally back down

In all honesty, I struggled to sleep after the match.
The way that the socceroos play most of us fall asleep during the match

Sometimes watching the Socceroos is like licking an ashtray

What issues are they? Low gates? Low TV audiences? Poor media coverage? None of these.

2019 is a big year for Australian football

Why spend millions on a train station for 8,000 people over a season of 10 matches? No economically viable.

BREAKING: FFA board decides on A-League expansion clubs as Team 11 reportedly miss out

FFA is biting of more than it can chew. Should reduce club numbers so as to focus on getting existing attendances up to over 10,000 on a regular basis. Not spreading the jam thinner

BREAKING: FFA board decides on A-League expansion clubs as Team 11 reportedly miss out

Two manufactured clubs. What happened to the heritage? South Melbourne has strong Greek heritage, so why a side out there?

BREAKING: FFA board decides on A-League expansion clubs as Team 11 reportedly miss out

The fear is not that A-League expansion has come too early, but that it has come too late. I read that from some posters that they believe FOX focus to much on other successful codes. Why is that? When soccer in Australia fixes it’s identity problems then crowds will turn up. Blaming other sports for their failings will not help.

Untill people start to turn up at woman’s sport in good numbers in Australia then world bodies will take note. A smattering at games does not cut it irrespective of how many are playing elsewhere

Matildas’ World Cup bid: Politics to hinder success

malicious attacks. Where are they?

#SokkahTwitter wont fix football in Australia
