Hi David, how many viewers watched the women’s football friendly between Australia and Canada on 10 yesterday afternoon? Thanks in advance.

Channel 10 don't want the AFL beatup. They've essentially pulled out of a race they were never really in.

So you say, based of course on anonymous sources, primarily in the News Ltd media. One thing is certain, soccer has not delivered for Channel 10. Smashed again yesterday by Australia’s Game.


"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.

James Bryant is the one most responsible for the game….and probably for getting Wills drunk…a lot.

Well, the first rules were written in a pub, Bryants Parade, and all but one of the five, maybe six of the rule writers, were renowned drinkers, sometimes to extreme.
They all had a good time, which is why it’s a most enjoyable game.
Now the soccer and rugby rules were first written in english “gentlemen's” boarding schools……explains much…

Many were drunks, I concede, but idiots…..no, some were the most influential people in the colony at the time.
However, if you look at the first rules, they evolved very quickly into the game we have today, you know…the most popular code in Australia….
What a decent drink in a pub can do…..

A-Leagues confirm shake-up to TV deal

The 2022-23 A-League Men has been relegated by broadcast partner Network Ten to one of its junior stations but will receive a boost with a doubling of games on free-to-air TV as part of a renegotiated arrangement.

Rather than the network's main Channel 10 outlet, 10 Bold will show two fixtures - up from just one on Saturday night last season - as part of the reworked deal.

Those games will be played at 7.45pm on Saturdays and 3pm on Sunday afternoons and will be shorn of the disruptive ad breaks which drew criticism from football fans.

I wonder if they will see paramount as a failed enterprise and pull out.

Going, going….a-league or super rugby pacific?
Whos first?
A-league could be bought out by one of the big leagues or clubs and run as a nursery…but would the want to?
