Nor do you only take have the fleece when it’s time to shear and leave half behind for your competitor to take!
Tv companies were willing to pay afl $600mill a year. Leaving $200mill on the table was mind boggling, and seeing some on here trying to defend the indefensible is even MOre staggering.
Goes to show that if you just appeal to the stupidity of the masses you can do pretty much anything and get away with it! Fair play to pistol Pete for that.
The guru of Australian media sporting contracts has "spoken" .

Conveniently forgets the time the Galloping CEO bragged to the media and all who would listen, we got an Australian record sporting Tv deal, then a few months later embarrassingly slam dunked by the fumbler's TV deal.
Maybe it had something to do with ad timing/revenue ,no of teams etc etc.
But no apparently both codes are 100% aligned in structure ,numbers ,state presence ,COVID impact and everything else associated with a sporting club.Must draw continually TV money comparisons, yawn.

The $550m he speaks of is for 2031. He chooses to leave that part out.

Inflation is 3-5%. Lets use 3% for this

On 2031 money the current NRL deal is $510m.

Except a new NRL deal with atleast 1 extra team will start. Which will see the 2031 NRL deal be well higher.

Yet he will bang on about the same BS that Gil whispers in his ear

Paramount offered $600mill, ch9 $500 or $550mill depending on which article you read, allegedly.
fox/7 ended up paying around $550mill plus.
No telstra included.
And contract guru, you have no doubt overlooked Paramount's financial situation in the U.S ,added to the dire prediction of Peter Van Olsenen ex employee of Ch10/CBS about theat outlets' major issues.
Would have been really exciting if Paramount had paid the big bikkies and as they have been cutting back reneged on the Tv deal with the fumblers.You then have to rattle off excuses big time.

Volk would be good as would Bam Bam (Panthers) and Rob Whittaker (Bunnies) to cross promote between sports.

The challenge is going to be time slots that appeal to both the US and Australian time zones to cover both sports.
