Just on the Sydney Melbourne thing….

You gotta say the MV & MC are stronger than SFC & WSW….

A buoyant Victory and a busted Sydney – just what the A-League Men’s needed

Simon

Lovely read …

Just on crowd rebuilding to previous levels… I think a lot will come down to perceptions of both the competition, and WSW….

At some point in time WSW need to hit form…. they seem to have caught SFC illness when for years SFC struggled in off field management…

Looking forward to both Jest and Drive By fans to the Coast for our matches…

The away day football experience: Following the Jets to Western Sydney

Seems a weird award…

Australasia is Sky Blue: Sydney FC named best team in region over Crusaders, Sixers and Storm

Still recovering from Waz’s post….

Wonders aloud what affect if any the Omicron variant will have on the balance of the season….

Waz, out of interest if I can recall previous posts you have made…. you don’t believe a second team in Brisbane should be considered …. so how does Brisbane get say more say if it only has one team…

As an aside to others, I am not overly keen on the Gong, getting a team…. sounds good bring back the Wolves… but its a small and well spread out population with a very strong rugby league presence …. I think the Gong should be a second division side…

Deep down in my soul I don’t think the Gong has the numbers …. it also has had years of a league team….

For me the Gong need to be in a second division… the last thing we need is another poorly supported team…

Rebuilding active support is the biggest key to the A-League Men's success

AnyWho, busy day and no time to repost but the essence of my post was the Active Support will help build the demographic APL is after ie.e under 30…

Rebuilding active support is the biggest key to the A-League Men's success

I read a couple of years back that the NFL in the US has determined the greatest risk to its future is massive court decisions….

I think many sports Admins feel the same….

I suspect, there maybe plans afoot across a number of codes to establish new competitions, and hope the debt can be left with in the future to be wound up competitions.

Why World Rugby’s Brain Health Initiative is making my head hurt

Mods... just lost a massive post…

Two issues… first why did it “not fetch”… second and most importantly why does the site not return to the what you had typed…

Sam will go down in history as one of our best ever…. the same company as Ray Baartz, Harry Kwell, Mark Viduka, Attila Abonyi , Tim Cahill

Maybe SR could delay their season by a month, and then play home matches for another say five weeks…. just maybe it could work out

NZ border call sparks concerns over Super Rugby, NBL, A-League seasons

WA also has time limits well into next year as well…

Must be a nightmare for all codes … I guess SR is the worst affected given the number of teams…

NZ border call sparks concerns over Super Rugby, NBL, A-League seasons

I got a feeling the USA match will rate very well….

But has not received much coverage aside from 10.

'That girl's sick!': Sam Kerr on chasing Tim Cahill record and why she wants a 'Barty party'

I am not trying to point score on head injuries …. the collision codes especially in the US are looking at some serious court cases…

Agree it will also apply to Football….

I can see some big cases coming up in Australia especially against codes with plenty of revenue and assets… its the way the legal world works.

Off topic but very interesting JJ half our interview on the Beyond the Lead podcast….

thanks waz …. interestingly we did not fall into a financial hole… that’s well done ….

Poppa takes just one game to prove he’s still got it

Totally agree…..
This is a long term play by CBS and its not restricted to Australia they are becoming increasingly aggressive in the US and MLS coverage…
Something not often mentioned… but DT has mentioned it and it was a discussion point in the CBS negotiations….. and this is the mid to long term view…..
Head injuries to past players when often medical advise has been out there but totally ignored in the spirit of … harden up son its part of the game… the collision codes world wide have huge court cases coming up….
These cases will have two general impacts… first financial in funds to be paid into reserve funds out of new revenue… and second on player numbers and the perceptions of these games by both viewers and sponsors….
This is a very long term play by both APL & CBS …. can be easily demonstrated by the fact on Saturday night they play two games at the same time…
Given CBS paid next to nothing for 10, as long as it does not loose to much money there long term interest in creating a streaming service will ensure its funded… and for better or worst Football is part of thir plan…

FIL

Actually its 8.5 million people associate with Football in Australia and Football by a big margin has a following by those under 25… However most of those under 25 never watch and mostly never will watch FTA TV…

The investment or thinking is Ch 10 can be used as a connecting point in getting the A-L accepted …..ads like the new ad released yesterday with the wrap theme show this…

According to DT…. CBS don’t expect to much in the first three years …. neither do APL… however the plan is to slowly draw people in…

The thinking again is you don’t take someone with little to no interest in the A-L to a watcher or match attender over night its a process of first connecting and then communicating…

10 is seen along with the new web page as part of an plan to connect to those interested in Football…

DT has gone on record in contrast to say Frank Lowy, JON, Buckley & Gallop in saying he is not going to chase AFL or NRL fans… he only wants to connect to people who have an interest in Football….

Further because APL can just work on the professional game … APL can focus on that connection across a number of connections points…

CBS and APL are working together on this… what many of the older folk of other codes and many in Football as well don’t quite either understand yet, or fail to grasp what it means … is the CBS / 10 / Paramount is more akin to a partnership than a broadcast deal….

Arguably for the first time in our history, APL does not give a flying fig what other codes are doing… they have plans and can focus on them … and the CBS group are a large part of that plan and a partner in the plan…

Poppa takes just one game to prove he’s still got it

Off topic guys and has in parts already been discussed a lot…. Lets assume CBS don’t plan to walk away from funding 10… and remember many CBS / Paramount shows / movies are currently licensed to other Australian streaming services…. and when the licences expire they will revert to Paramount and what I have been told by a media client of mine is that Paramount expect to be the second biggest streaming service behind Netflicks within 3 years…

But

10’s promo ad for next year… Football features a lot… I think the most…..

I can only talk about NSW as I have no knowledge of other states.

Takes a deep breath … how can I explain something quite complex, simply without writing a book.

I decided just to say the issue and how it can be rectified.

NSW has IMO a very decent system and the system could be used for player development especially junior players….

NSW has local areas or regions where park teams join together to form an association. The associations then run the local competitions…

There are a number of associations and they mostly have what could be termed a head office staff, a head office of some kinda and grounds…

The association or many associations have very large budgets and big revenues…

How they spend the revenue IMO is the issue, a lot is spent on their senior teams as they each try to become a success on the field….

The associations also have rep teams… this is where the tragedy happens … I won’t go into details but some much could be accomplished with associations rep teams…. but it does not and if revenue directed at senior teams was directed at both selection and training of rep teams a lot would be achieved.

Australia's young footballers are trapped in a broken system designed for failure

I hope they can sort out their issues…. Council should hang their heads in shame….

Wonders aloud and this is a serious question….. the ground staff cannot be that dumb…. I do wonder if the lack of preparing the pitch earlier was kinda done on purpose…. on the Coast we have experienced different things from council and often its been by zealous who get control over something and wanta to protect their chosen want….

Are the Bulls better off leaving Campbelltown?

Popa is good for the league…… he will make MV competitive and thats good for the league as a whole

thanks for posting that link Waz… great pick up and good news

The A-League Men's teething problems are nothing that can't be fixed

ABC was rating 50K so 146 is 3 times a large… even without the Paramount + game game at the same time… my guess is they got well over 200K for both 10 and Paramount.
