    Are you directed to broadcast crappy games, or do you choose to?

    Not sure if that's a slight or not.....

    Well, I was being a smartarse, apologies for that.

    But Soak v Uni, when you could have had Nedlands v Cottesloe or Palmyra v Kalamunda as game of the day?

    That would mean we shouldn't show the Force against the Rebels or the Brunbies or the clash between the Reds and Waratahs they all deserve to be seen occasionally
    Just joking fulvio

    I understand a reasonable amount of daft and abusive posts will follow, but my question is a serious one ... has there been any contact with ABC in WA over the previous years about broadcasting some games?

    It's a prime time to request something if there's contacts within the broadcaster ... demonstrating with the current climate that there club rugby in WA and it's not all rubbish ! Given I've watched some of the televised NSW games previously.

    It would be a huge plus for the sport and it's awareness and make business cases for sponsorship approaches worthwhile ... local businesses will go WAFL clubs as they know it'll be on TV and news snippets which makes it extremely difficult to compete. If we manage some club exposure there's a slim chance we could pull some of that funding away ...?

    Yes I know.

    Now that we're moving into the "peak winter" period we have to manage both the conditions/weather and the fixture.

    There are some venues we just can't stream from and others are affected by conditions.

    Looked at Pally Bulls this week, but we're coming off Kala from last week.

    Plus, that allows us to head to Pally Neddies next week.

    There's no chance of any broadcaster taking games.

    Not withstanding the conversation about ratings ect, the number on reason is facilities. There are no grounds capable to broadcast from without spending huge $ in rigging an equipment.

    That and the fixtures clash with pretty much every other broadcast sport.

    If a feature game was played at nib, on a Sunday morning, then that would be the gate opener.

    Don't the Shute Shield clubs (Well the ARU and the NSWRU) pay to have the Shute Shield on TV over East?

    Last year it cost them $300 000 odd to get 7 to show it, this year they have found a $250 000 sponsor to pay for it.

    Given the relative size of the markets, you wouldn't expect the ABC to charge the same amount to televise WA club rugby over the shite shield. Ignoring the complexities of market forces, the ratings would be counted as revenue in this calculation. If it costs NSW $300,000 a year, based upon my understanding of the figures it would cost RugbyWA approximately 20c and two bubblegum wrappers, because (as Hansie said) the crowds are standing two deep at some matches. The Shite Shield only attracts Brettt Papworth and a drover's dog doesn't it?

    Would cost $25-30k per game, but that's just for the broadcasting.

    On top of that would be massive amount of infrastructure/rigging a ground would need including suitable power facilities and dedicated production areas. That's likely another $10-20k - remember RWA prem fixtures a played on parks, not stadiums like many sides over east.

    Anyway, streamed the match whilst I did some gardening the other week - beautiful.
