    Agree on the digs, but it was the same place they did the two week training camp at on the way out to Perth. As they noted themselves, tough but they could at least train as a squad. Better...

    Wasn't that the Manuma Samoan team the Force played just before the doors slammed shut?

    My understanding was that it was simply circumstances, and even a case of swings and roundabouts. Samoa made...

    You'd like to think part of the decision making process would have included how they take their constituency with them and grow it, but....

    Puts a lot of faith in everyone being aligned then, doesn't it? Both initially, and against every and all possible future outcome. Unless you believe every single future possibility can be covered in...

    Have to say, I'm surprised. I would have thought they would have organised for the FTA game each week to be either the Waratahs or Reds away game if they wanted viewer numbers.

    As a statement, that only tends to highlight that in most instances it specifically does mean maximised shareholder value...it is merely noting that are some instances where it might not. But that...

    So, hypothetically, imagine they come up with a Super 18 that increased the value of the broadcast rights by 148%. With a private equity partner whose only interest was "to drive up the value of...

    Just saying, don't see one game a week and the rest locked behind a different paywall as significantly different. Especially if it came at the cost of less cash in hand. You can't spend...

    TBH, I can't really see one game a week changing anything much. Ultimately though, the big question is how much of the deal is cash and how much is contra.

    I've said it before, but I have never understood why Foxtel has never used FTA content as an advertising opportunity. As in show one regular game/match/race/etc, but stuff it full of ads pointing out...

    I didn't pick up on that, although I would have thought any deal would by nature been for one year only unless they have already settled the structure of rugby for 2022+. The only thing tougher than...

    $57M/yr only started 5 years ago, not ten. And that was 2.5x bigger than the previous contract, mostly due to money from Europe. So in 2015, they were getting c.a. $25M/yr total, including all the...

    Almost by inspection, you'd have to call BS on a lot of that speculation about numbers. The $285M over 5 years is a hard number, and it was widely and reliably reported as being a 148% increase on...

    Inclined to agree on Jooste, but surprised about Ferris and the front rowers. Guess it is the fall-out of the call on GRR next year, and tends to suggest the NRC is indeed toast.

    TBH, I forgot it was on but couldn't be bothered once I noticed they were playing. Nothing to do with the players or 2017, but I have lost interest as it became clear that while it has never really...

    You would have thought that the best place for any player who wasn't positive would be outside SA, not in it. Forcing them to remain would be little more than their government knowingly placing them...

    Given there is persistent talk of ongoing involvement with the BoP/China team in the NZ comp, I am a little surprised the possibility of involving the Fijian and Samoan GRR teams in the Australian...

    It is certainly a situation that makes both the share market and politics look like like places of good sense and logic. But the really stupid thing of it was that if 12 Super Rugby teams were worth...

    I doubt it TBH. For mine it is likely a question of either four teams or six i.e two games a weekend or three. Any competition wouldn't really be long enough to require byes, and in the current...
