  1. The A-League has suffered under the FFA in recent years. Also when they were too busy going for WC2022. It needs to be independant from the governing body who should be focusing on development pathways and the national teams. Reminder, the FFA were so amazing at their job running the league that they let the highs of 2012-2015 fall apart completely with their anti active support/anti supporter initiatives that drove thousands away and banned hundreds more for nothing. All to chase the praise of the non caring MSM and the elusive non-football family suddenly becoming fans. Never happened. The Terror article with the banned images was the last straw. The walkouts were another straw. FFA/AL never recovered after that.
  2. 2 weeks notice for renewal seems a bit short, considering no one even knows what the makeup of the league will be next season, nor when it starts. They obviously want to get their financials in order for this FY (or even the 2021 calendar year), but something just feels off about all this. Our memberships don't pay the wages of the players. Usually the broadcast deal covered that and now with that reduced, there are issues there. Also the whole PFA/CBA negotiations happening. I didn't expect a price rise, and the discount is welcomed, but when the players aren't getting paid and there is so much in the air atm surrounding the league, it just seems mistimed.

    Yes it still gets sung, usually when we're losing. So basically for about 70 minutes every game
  5. I really don't care about the GF being at BW. These are extraordinary circumstances and its obviously worked for the hub and the finals all to be at BW from a costs perspective. The entire season has a * to it. Its not even the "rbb" end as its all seated. I've already seen suggestions from some SFC fans for them to always use BW until their stadium is never built lol.
  6. Sure this isn't the Armageddon thread?
  7. They've signed like 2 players. They've got bigger problems methinks.
  8. If Duke has real offers in Germany and Belgium then WTF is he still here lol Classic "talk to the media to sort out my contract" stuff here
  9. Everything I've read about NSWPol antagonising, creating hostile situations then trying to justify their actions (especially with what went down in Central Station) doesn't surprise me at all. We've seen it countless times at AL games over the years. But we were just low-born sokkah hooligans that deserved it with our violent conduct I guess.
  10. It wasn't viewed by 25 million Italians. The POTENTIAL audience was 25 million Italian homes. That's what Hill said during the broadcast. That figure has somehow now turned to "25 million Italians watched the match" which is incorrect. In terms of revenue for the HAL/FFA. There would be NO extra revenue. These would be from existing broadcast contracts that are in place. Its just that now everyone is at home and want some football so the potential is more than normal.
  11. Our crossing was terrible and predictable. All our corners were wasted. DG telegraphs his cut to the right foot every single time. Yeboah is frustrating. We didn't deserve to lose that match so happy with the draw. Especially with a couple of key players out. Not sure why people are talking about finals. The league will be suspended before that happens or it'll be a shortened finals anyway. FFA pay for and reap the $ for finals. No point in having 5 games if no one is paying and no profits can be made.
  12. Been the case for 2 seasons now. Any country that doesn't have a broadcast deal can stream the games on YouTube.
  13. "Clearwater" as the name of that beach has to be satire right?
  14. @Taurus was looking for one. Not sure if he has acquired yet.
