Football Media Discussion 2

Recommended Posts

It is on FTA... Just not until 12.30 tonight for some reason that I do not understand - it could be the SBS-Foxtel deal only covers competitive matches being broadcast on both channels live, or SBS made a bad call and decided not to screen it live on any of their channels. At least it’s being broadcast on Foxtel/Kayo/My Football app, plus the ABC is covering it on NewsRadio. Not perfect, but at least it’s an improvement on yesteryears.

It comes down to money Genny, Foxtel has paid a premium to broadcast football in this country. They aren’t going to lose it’s exclusivity despite the positive this Matilda’s bring not just to Australian football but women’s sport too.

Interesting article re: the influence (sometimes undue) of agents in Australian football.

One of the best pieces written about sokkah in this country for ages.

Parkin has been doing excellent work on the business side of football for ages & is possibly the only voice in the media who is talking about it. Far too many of our commentariat are focused on issues like TV audiences, standard of games, active fans etc. RP is digging away on the dollars & cents behind the professional game and needs to be accorded far more attention.
