Did Nine bid include sacrificing the NRL?
Nine denies it considered dropping the NRL when it made an audacious 11th-hour bid for the AFL broadcast rights. But sources say the AFL pitch provoked an intriguing conversation.
Sorry don't have the full article. But it would've interesting to see what would happen if 9 had won the rights.
In fact both other bids would be interesting to see.
i suspect channel 9 would of had to pay a big fee to leave or potentially been sued.
I recan channel 10 would of jumped on board.. would of been a win win
