The whole debate about PC has a lot do with the fact that minority groups have now used social media as a tool to fight their causes. If a small minority is loud enough, and is able to get sympathy from the mainstream, then they are able to influence what is politically correct in society. They have enough power to change legislation if they are commited enough.

 

My issue is that some groups have really pushed their barrow to the nth degree. I genuinely feel sorry for gay people who have to suffer like they do at the hands of some people. I really do. But what about overweight people? What about poor or intellectually disabled people? We always just assume these people are able to take it. Different people are sensitive to different things. A lot of these issues are more based on individual needs of different people and their vulnerabilities. Not specific groups.

 

A lot of supporting PC causes is about point scoring as well, and attempting to pass yourself off as a 'better' person than others. This has nothing to do with the issue at hand off course, but people use it as a way to make themselves appear better than others. It really is something I find which turns me off a lot.

 

PC is oppression.

 

Organisations such as FFA etc.. should be focusing on their core business. Instead they spend too much time keeping up with the Jones' in the brand awareness and social PR game. All these minority groups are just happy to get the love that's been so longed for.

Its a bit of good news. Shake things up a bit. Get some media exposure.

Is it just me or has the A League gone a bit 'Meh' lately? I'm sure it's because it's the Smurfs and not us at the summit but still.....

If I could think of a meme for 'stale' I'd post it

Wollongong Wolves needs to stand on it's own, a greater Southern Sydney team won't fly with the Gong locals even if they do play a few games down there.

A southern Sydney team that will represent everyone from Cronulla through to Hobart by the time they try and pump up their tyres about how inclusive it's catchment area is. Or should I say CORRIDOR!!! Yawn. How unimaginative and boring.

 

Give it a couple of seasons and they'll struggle to pull more than 10k on average cause they're playing out of several stadiums and 'locals' are treated to 2-3 local home games a season.

 

Southern Sydney travelling circus - inclusive of all, home side to none.

Yeah, the Gong should definitely not be part of that. As if ppl from there are going to make the trek to Cronulla or Kogarah for all the other games. 

 

Just make it a South Sydney team (I don't think they should be at the top of the list, but at this point beggars can't be choosers) and chuck both them and the Gong in, then one from Victoria and let Red Bull buy a Gold Coast team or something. Bang, 14 teams, home and away season.

I think you are underestimating Les and Fozz. Sure agree or disagree with them, like them or not but they definitely love this game. Undeniably.

Everyone is a cynic, it's the easy option. But as a true WSW fan i wish them every success because I love the game and want it to succeed in Oz. **** the egg ball codes....

"However, as we have consistently said, individual bids – even well-funded ones – do not address the operating and contractual costs faced by FFA and therefore they do not make expansion instantly viable on their own.

 

"There is no point in having a well-funded club working in one geographical area if other clubs are not seeing any benefit or indeed are expected to see the funding model diluted."

 

Wot...

LOLOLOL

 

These guys clearly have to go. What the above confirms is that they've been operating with the wrong model all along. If you can't add financially viable teams to the league because "the funding model will be diluted" then you should have know the model was broken A VERY LONG TIME AGO. While they were sprouting off to us about potentially 16 teams with some in regional areas last November / December, they should have already done the numbers.

 

I assume what they mean is that they give the clubs a grant, and it comes from the tv deal. So if you add more teams, that fund gets divided up more. What I can't see, and maybe a finance person can help here, is why they would be diluting the funding if they were adding teams. Surely the tv deal would go up accordingly?

 

At the moment the clubs get $2.5m per year. And that was under the old deal of $40m per year, which included Socceroos. Even if there are additional costs to two teams on top of the yearly grant, surely the tv deal should cover this? You've already increased the tv deal to $54m per year, so you're playing with an extra $14m per year already. And if you went to 12 teams and still played 3 times each, that is a 47% increase on the amount of games played through the year! If you can't afford two new teams when you've just increased the funding by over $14m per year and two new teams would mean even more games, you've got massive problems.

A South Sydney team will all but destroy all hopes of Wolves coming into the A-League prior to any pro/rel.

 

I've seen a lot of comments on all the TWG articles on FB with "Wolves or nothing" or something along that effect.

Its a different market.

 

Seems Les Murray is trying to bring back St George Budapest in JW's memory.

 

edit: WSW will have no rivalry with this team. But SFC def will.

But the FFA think they will have a rivalry with us just because it's Sydney.

I'd prefer a Wollongong team (not necessarily the Wolves imo a new franchise/club to unify the region) plus it's about an hour from my house to WIN stadium.

I think this paragraph you wrote was probably heading in the right direction.

 

Let's make assumptions here because, hey, that's what we do. I'm making an assumption that Gallop and co did not put any caveats into the tv deal with Fox that would increase funding to the A-League should more teams enter the competition, hence why he's saying that funding would be diluted.

Apparently, the potential southern expansion team has put forward a $20 million bank guarantee as stated by Craig Foster on TWG podcast. He indicated that there is potential for "independent" A-League (imo semi-independent) to have this a criteria going forward. Imagine how that would affect the Mariners and the Nix. From what I've heard Perth's owner is a tighta*** as well.

Have to agree. Appears to be no incremental revenue adjustment by way of additional clubs entering the competition. This would explain delay for expansion. What a major contractual f... up. This is one of those situations where commercial lawyers go "oh sh_t". Finger pointing begins. So inevitably the FFA would need to pass on a tariff to new entrants that would need to cover dilution of FTA fund distribution.

Hey. What's the story about this NYRB/Salzburg rumour of ownership. Our owners don't appear to like spending money, and Dietrich is worth about 15 billion. I say sell.

Unless you want it to be the Red Bull Bloc then probably best we give it a miss

Ha, at least it's still the RBB. Just thought if we where acquired by red bull that it might be practical to "loan players" acquired by NYRB back, ala mcfc.
