    Football Media Discussion 2

    Football, rugby hit as Foxtel sports rights budget cuts bite Football and rugby’s second-tier domestic competitions, the FFA Cup and the National Rugby Championship, are in the firing line amid the first wave of budget cuts at embattled subscription television provider Foxtel, report Georgina Robinson and Vince Rugari in The SMH. The Herald reports Rugby Australia is in negotiations to shoulder a portion of the NRC’s production costs while rights for the FFA Cup could be on-sold to another network as Fox Sports looks to reduce costs under the weight of a $417 million financial loss in 2018. Fox Sports’ waning appetite for the round-ball code is clear – it tried to wriggle out of a $5 million annual increase in its contract with FFA as part of the A-League’s expansion, and is considering selling off two of the five weekly games to a free-to-air partner. Along with the Seven and Ten networks, it is believed SBS has been involved in preliminary talks over the A-League’s free-to-air rights and may yet emerge as the cup’s saviour.

    AFL Thread 2

    they need segregation just like them "sokkah" hooligans, they claim to be "kulchered" yet have also proved that opposite fans can't sit next to each other, surprise surprise. Away bays for fans of all sports!

    its a business to them its about just making money with the content that will bring more subscribers. Ditch foxtel and if u got decent internet get kayo sports, which is fox sports basically. Foxtel soccer content has gone way downhill the past few years,

    the difference is that AFL suits listen to their fans where as the A League/FFA suits don't listen to their fans. All we hear is that it is out of our hands we can't control what the stadium does or how they manage security, yet the AFL manage to get Marvel stadium to get security to scale down their presence as the fans are feeling scared and intimidated from seccies walking up and down aisles yet those same fans are crying where is the security when ever a couple of AFL bogans decide to punch on infront of families and children. AFL don't want to loose or turn away fans from attending matches, FFA don't really care they may actually want less fans to turn up to matches and more fans to watch matches on foxtel, suits foxtels agenda and might mean a bigger contract for tv rights!!

    Team Name

    yer i saw that video too, claiming they had a population based of 750 000 people? Campbelltown barely has 10 000 ppl and the area of Macarthur is about 300 000. Also it said the 5 ends of their shield represented the areas/councils they represent? Wonder what areas they are claiming? Is Liverpool/fairfield suddenly Macarthur region? Anyways good to have another team in the A league, but a lot of their fans are goin to be ex wsw fans who have jumped on the latest bandwagon till they get over the latest faze in town.

    Squad Development 2019/20 Part 1

    Torres isn't happy in Japan, hasn't scored a goal team is close to relegation and he wants out. Can we convince not to head to Mexico and maybe give the A-LEAGUE a look at, WSW head honchos????
  8. sad thing tonight that was close to our starting XI. Might as well let them all go and end the season. Next week needs to have youth and those who have a future with us. Be lucky we get 5k against victory, if the players don;t show up don't expect the fans to either.

    Around the Bloc Podcast Season 7

    losing EPL and recently UCL to optus has made a lot of people cancel their foxtel sports if football was their main reason for having foxtel. I couldn't justify paying that much just to watch the A League and foxtel don't budge when you try to cancel by offering just a sports channel on its own with having the compulsary crap channels for $30. Kayo does me now for $25 a month as long the internet has a decent connection and reaches the minimum speeds
  10. shouldn't be, mine just said 125 safe standing, but i suppose until we get a detailed map of the seating arrangement of the stadium we won't know. I'd also say being that the same staff events management that run souless will also run wankbest so i expect them to be bay nazies and make sure people stay in their allocated bays
  11. our defence has gotten sturdier and new recruits up front has added more intensity and more competition to make the starting 11
