And to think the ARLC talks of a future NRL team in Perth. Tell em they're dreamin. #-o

Poor old Channel 9 absoultely smashed in Adelaide and Perth. You gotta feel for them indeed. They have enough problems as it is without giving away Sunday night prime time so easily to their rival networks.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

In 2014 the nRL grand final will be on Gem in Adelaide and Perth. Channel 9 can't continue to sacrifice ratings for a shit sport that clearly locals don't care about.

Chairman of the Australian Rugby League Commission John Grant talks to Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale about the city’s bid to enter the NRL.

LEAGUE boss John Grant has crash-tackled Ipswich's bid to have a team in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition.

The Australian Rugby League Commission chairman said no new team would be admitted to the competition for at least the next five years, the life of the recently signed broadcast deal.

Mr Grant said the expansion of the competition, whcih some had hoped could come as soon as 2015, might be as far away as 10 years
.

Other bids for a new team came from Central Queensland, Brisbane, the NSW Central Coast and Perth.

David Gallop was an advocate for the Western Corridor bid including Ipswich when he was the chief executive of the NRL.

But Mr Gallop resigned as chief executive of the new Australian Rugby League Commission in June, four months into his contract.

Speaking exclusively to the QT, Mr Grant said when the commission took over from the NRL it found very work little had been done about expansion.

He said there had been no analysis of the effect on the game and no timeline for bringing a new team into the competition.

Negotiations for the new broadcast deal between the ARL, Channel Nine and Foxtel revealed no financial benefit from a new team, he said.

"One of the considerations we had when it came to the new broadcast licence was whether there was any additional value of an additional game," Mr Grant said. "We've got eight games a weekend now, with an extra team there would be nine games.

"The bottom line is they didn't see any value in an additional game. So where we are now is that as a result of the broadcast rights negotiations, there's no justification for expansion.

"If you don't have any value in an additional game you have to find funds from somewhere else."

He said it could take up to 10 years for a consortium to generate sustainable backing to run and support a team in the NRL.

Mayor Paul Pisasale was buoyant about Mr Grant's announcement, saying it gave Ipswich's bid a starting point.

"It's good because we know where we stand and we know what we have to do to reach our goal," the Mayor said.

"We were told by David Gallop that there was a bid and we took it very seriously not only for the city but for young people coming through wanting to play rugby league and for the whole corridor from Toowoomba right through."

He said the first step in getting a bid ready to be admitted into the competition was developing a partnership with an NRL club.

"What we're doing is getting processes in place where young people in Ipswich can go through and play in the NRL," he said.

"So we're negotiating with the Broncos to see whether they are prepared to sign a MOU (memorandum of understanding) with the city, with the junior rugby league, the IRL and the Jets."

Western Corridor bid chief Steven Johnson was disappointed the commission hadn't told him but took the decision in his stride.

"Obviously when David Gallop was head of the NRL he had a different view of expansion to the commission," Mr Johnson said.

"But we can't change their mind and we wouldn't want to. We'll have to be patient and wait our time. We're confident when the expansion comes through we'll be in a position to be first chosen."

He supported Ipswich forming a partnership with an NRL club such as the Broncos, saying the Mayor's idea was "not inconsistent with our vision and our model".

"We'd be happy to partner with any club that shares our vision," he said. "Speaking as chairman of Ipswich Jets, we need a pathway to the NRL through the Ipswich Junior Rugby League, the IRL and the Ipswich Jets."

The big league

The Australian Rugby League Commission was formed in February as the new governing body of rugby league.

John Grant was named chairman and former NRL chief executive David Gallop was to continue in a similar role with Mr Grant and seven other commission members.

wow
this is bad news for the VFL

the NRL is not going to make the same mistake they did by ruining their comp & starting up 2 new waste of space teams that will bleed the coffers dry for decades
no .... as the article points out
new teams if not done properly , add nothing & in fact when they're done poorly , bring down the comp.... look at the thuns & midgits for an example
ruining the VFL .. because the VFL F 'd up
that mistake will take ten years to just get the rest of the comp back to an even keel ... these 2 teams however will be sucking on VFL funds a long time after this
along with many others who will be worse off as well .... VFL yep...its dying

no mill stones around our necks though :wink: .... just record TV deal after record TV deal to spend on our existing 16 clubs & the development of our game
nah
the best news for the VFL would have been we were going to expand & tie up a lot of our new found funds to do it
we're now going to instead use these funds to run their silly little game out of NSW & QLD ..... for good :wink:

Dave, expansion is a slow process that takes many years to bear fruit. Look at the storm. 15yrs of success and essentially at the same crowd and membership level that they started with. Hows that working for ya? :lol: :lol:

The NRL just dont have the interest or funds to embark on expansion in other AFL states. Just like their other WA expansion itd lose following and fall over.

NRL, basketcase league :lol:

The nRL got drilled by the AFL ratings Raiderdave. By the way don't sugercoat the 3rd? nRL expansion delay. It's beyond a joke now, the nRL is nothing but a stagnant league that fears expansion and is insecure about their own heartland.

Thing is, expansion is always very hard and financially draining in the short term, but you have to start some time. It will take a few more years untill the AFL is back to normal operations, and probably another 8 or so years before the two new franchises will be able to stand on their own two feet. It doesn't matter when the nRL expands, whether now or in ten years time, the initial negative impact and cost will be the same. By biting the bullet and expanding now, the AFL will be settled, stronger, and much bigger than it already is by the time the nRL decides to think about maybe considering expanding perhaps. Expanding the AFL into Sydney and Brisbane all those decades ago was seen as folly back then, and both clubs went broke several times. The Swans started with average crowds of 3k, and the Bears not much better, but we are now the biggets league in the land because we bit the bullet, weathered the short term pain, focused on the long-term growth of the sport, and we'll do so again. There are over 50 NSW players on AFL lists, and over 50 QLD players on AFL lists, and that number will only grow over the next 20 years with double the teams in those states. The Suns and Giants crowds haven't been good enough by AFL standards, and will grow, but they've been competitive against local nRL rivals (hell the Suns even beat the Titans for attendance in their first year). Those kids who get visits in schools and get given free tickets will grow up with the expansion teams over the next 10 years, all while the nRL waits on expansion, choosing instead to focus their funds on deadbeat teams in Sydney.

NRL: focused on keeping its head above water.
AFL: short term pain for long term gain.
