    With respect to the rights, it is obviously all about Asia. Within Australia you are probably looking at one of the international streaming options, as I doubt any of the normal options would be...

    The PI teams might look to a trans-Tasman, but they would need to be competitive. Based on the standard of their teams, I would see GRR as a much more natural fit for both them and any Japanese...

    That will be interesting. While the Force isn't being funded by RA, I can't see that they can reasonably impose salary restrictions. But once they are (next year, theoretically), I would imagine the...

    The better question might be how the 150k compares with what 9Gem would normally show on a Friday. With the number of channels and programs available now, I would have thought those numbers on a...

    I'm a little undecided. If it replaced the ref always going to the TMO unless requested, might be worth a run. TBH though, it is the kiwis problem; doubt I'll see enough of their games to tell.

    I'd be somewhat wary of copying AFL, if only because it is structured quite differently as a sport. The main thing for mine needs to be that administration of the amateur and professional games need...

    Biggest question for mine remains how they will get it into the pubs. That is the vast majority of the sport's 'casual' viewership.

    I read it like TiF, but agree it is not written particularly well. Can understand the concern though, when between them they almost add up to a starting team. Hopefully plans are in place to really...
