    it's not like fumbleball is the only sport called footy

    Maybe by naming the channel Fox League they've left it open to be used as a Rugby League channel instead of just an NRL channel.

    Maybe they're hoping that they can pick up some other international competitions TV rights on the cheap and that they'll get pretty good ratings for them by using the new channel as a basis for them.
    Maybe They'll attempt to get the Australian broadcasting rights to any internationals from around the world that are televised, maybe they'll try to get the rights to the Toronto Wolfpacks' games, Championship (if it's televised), the French Competition (if it's televised), etc.
    Maybe they're looking into having an NRL 360 style show for the game outside of the NRLs' borders. Maybe they're looking into expanding their coverage of the Qcup and NSWcup to televise more of those competitions matches.

    I know I wouldn't watch mostly repeats in between the rounds of the NRL, which seems to be Fox Footys' modus operandi, but I'd watch as much of that as possible.

    I agree but for some reason every merkin likes to bend over and take it up the tail pipe just to appease the AFL

    Ffs it's rugby league, can any media organization use the proper name instead of letting union ride off into the sunset with the name rugby?

    If they the powers that be don't want rugby league to be called by its real name anymore,put up a decent suggestion as league is stupid. What the hell is league anyway?

    A league of what?



    We can't use rugby as for the last 27 years now that has referred to union and Union only it seems.

    Here's an idea, how about this for a cool name for the new channel

    How about Fox Rugby League?

    Kinda rolls off the tongue eh?

    The name is stupid just like your stupid but very apt name, no wonder you like it. Two words or one in your case is much easier to say than Fox rugby league.

    Waaaaaaaaaah.

    Don't blame Fox. It's the NRL's responsibility to create and choose their branding. Not hard for them to make a phone call to Fox and insist on what the name for the channel carrying their sport is called or have included it in the negotiations when the concept of the 24/7 RL channel came up..
