That's it! Ch 9 publish the SMH and Fox have Fox league and the Daily telegraph. That's why all of a sudden Rothfield and Kent are all of a sudden on the side of the NRL. And each side is putting out alternative facts that are at odds with the other sides story. It's kinda like idiot journalists at 10 paces. Hopefully PVL plays 'em against each other & get's the best deal possible!!!!!

After many many years of mismanagement it looks like Rl has a shrewd operator in PVL .
We were laughed at for not being proactive .
Not being on the front foot .
Being left behind ..etc .
So what now
PVL is eexcatly the opposite.
He's proactive .
Putting RL first doing what's best for the game not the media who think they own it .
& what do we get off the fumblers on here.
Jealous rants .
Screeching about dogs & shit.
Ranting about clusterfucks etc .

Well,at least PVL is on the front foot .
It might not go to plan but at the moment it seems to be going great .
& he's having a go .

Channel Seven reaches out to NRL about potential broadcast partnership
Michael ChammasApril 15, 2020 — 11.57pm

Channel Seven, the home of AFL, has reached out to the NRL about the potential of acquiring rugby league content in the future as Channel Nine looks to offload one of its three free-to-air matches.

The news comes as Nine boss Hugh Marks prepares to meet with Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany and ARLC chairman Peter V’landys on Thursday to renegotiate the broadcast deal for 2020 and determine when and how the season will resume.

The Herald has also been told by sources with knowledge of discussions that Fox Sports will not surrender its simulcast arrangement with Nine, the publisher of this masthead, nor does it intend to scrap the Friday 6pm game, as Nine is hoping.

On the eve of the crucial broadcast meeting, the NRL’s negotiating power has been significantly strengthened with revelations Channel Seven has expressed interest in the rights of the sport.

Seven West Media boss James Warburton, who didn’t return calls on Wednesday, has a close long-time relationship with NRL boss Todd Greenberg and is monitoring the code’s broadcast squabble as Seven positions itself as a potential partner should the NRL need to seek an alternative free-to-air broadcaster.

Uncertainty around the AFL, in combination with the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games, the cancellation of Wimbledon and the prospect of India not being able to tour Australia for the summer of cricket, could leave Seven with some funds to make a play at rugby league.

Rugby league icon Phil Gould has discussed plans to relaunch the NRL in late May, plus criticism from an old foe.

NRL matches are included on the Australian anti-siphoning list and there are currently three matches on free-to-air TV. That could mean there will be pressure on the NRL to ensure there is at least the same number of free-to-air matches going forward, which opens the door for Seven, despite its poor financial position.

Channel Seven’s AFL ratings in NSW and Queensland remain unimpressive, although NRL content would provide a much-needed boost to its eastern seaboard markets.

At a crucial meeting between the current broadcast partners and the NRL on Thursday at V’landys’ Racing NSW offices, Nine is expected to outline its desire for exclusive games and a willingness to part ways with the Thursday night game. It also wants exclusive games on Friday and Sunday.

It is expected Fox Sports will not agree to sacrificing the entire collection of weekly matches, basing its subscription service around an ‘‘every game, live and ad-free’’ sell.

Agreeing to hand Nine exclusivity would rob Fox Sports of the best games of the round, with the free-to-air network given first preference on matches.

Nine also want to discuss the removal of the Friday 6pm game, which Fox broadcasts against the free-to-air network’s news.

Channel Nine has experienced a decline in the Friday 8pm game ratings, something Fox Sports is well aware of and unwilling to compromise given the number of viewers who stay with Fox from the first to second Friday night game.

Nine’s preference, largely in a bid to bank the $130 million saving it announced to the stock exchange last week, would be for the NRL to wait until crowds are allowed back before the season resumes – even if it means no rugby league until 2021.


That won’t cut it with the NRL or Fox Sports, who are desperate to return as soon as possible to ensure the financial viability of the respective organisations.

It’s anticipated Nine’s tactic will be to stall. Prolong discussions for as long as possible to ensure there is less content to pay for.

Very interesting development. Ch 7 did a great job with the last World Cup and got great ratings. It would be good to see how they handle the NRL comp although I note there is no mention of SOO.

Having said that the article was published by the SMH who are owned by Ch9 so I would be taking it with a grain of salt. There is a lot of disinformation around at the moment with Ch10 also reportedly interested!!! So every FTA network has now got a mention. That can only be a good thing.

And apparently the NRL hasn't signed off on the $250M line of credit because they have other potential backers. Things are starting to look very positive for Australia's most watched sport. With the famous curve flattening and new infections diving the NRL's early preparations for a return to the playing field may place them way in front of every other domestic sport.

Time will tell!!!!!!!!!!!

That to me is the key sentence in the whole article.

Maybe after forty fucking years Seven have finally got sick of pushing shit uphill.
With very very little reward

I recan would be superb if 2 x FTA networks had the NRL along with FOX

but NRL cannot just give into CH9 hear. and agree to new deal for less money.

PVL has been a god sent (SO FAR)

Yep. They'll have to negotiate a lower amount due to less content and sponsorship money for the remainder of this year. Then revert to
the original amount from next season. However if they could come to a total re-negotiation where all parties are happy that is a possibility also.

I read yesterday that all NRL clubs are behind the ARLC while the fight with 9 is going on
That would be a rarity .
His real test will come not from the media or TV .
It will be his first stoush with the clubs .
They have got their way for so long now that it is ingrained in them .
Interesting times when the telecasting issue is over .
A new deal with whoever will have clubs who are in financial trouble pushing for a larger slice of the $$ pie
PVL will be in the trenches then .

If reports are correct. On current season
20 rounds finals and origin

NRL is set to lose approx 60 million in tv revenue
From the broadcasters.
This does not include SKY SPORTS IN NZ
Or international holders..


AFL which has reduced season to 17 rounds
And reduced game length by 16 mins per game
In game mins.

Wonder what hit AFL will be looking at this year
In broadcasts alone

Closer to $80 million without factoring in any potential cuts from SKY in NZ it appears.

The Herald revealed on Friday that Foxtel was looking to slash more than $50million from its deal with the NRL this season, while Nine is looking to cut about $28m.

"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.

No doubt there will be cuts for both codes in terms of broadcast revenue. Still think the NRL finds itself in a much more dire predicament though with no assets and virtually every club broke... even before COVID-19.
