That would be coz of the casual origin fans would be drawn to the qlders from their decade of dominance, cam smith, billy slater, JT, etc, wont take long before the casual interstate fan starts rooting for the bluesI've been to both and the Blues support was definitely the minority.
And the traditional resentment of Sydney-centric NSWankers.That would be coz of the casual origin fans would be drawn to the qlders from their decade of dominance, cam smith, billy slater, JT, etc, wont take long before the casual interstate fan starts rooting for the blues
But he spoke to 3 people who assured him he was correct !about 1300
no way of knowing, and is there such as thing as an avg west australian? If you mean the majority I can only go on what evidence we have seen so far, which is people are not opposed to the idea
You cant say that as you dont how the avg West Australian is seeing it (if such a thing exists!)
I've lived in Perth 22 years and NEVER heard anyone seriously suggest succeeding would be a good idea, in fact I cant even think of anyone who has ever raised it in a conversation! Every community has its lunatics, you seem to keep finding ours lol
And another asking a) do we want GROTD to go away? b) do we want GROTD to go away right now? or c) undecided!
I'm not being rude here but how many extra subscribers to Fox/Kayo do you think a Perth team will bring?
I would daresay that most, if not all, rugby league supporters in WA already have one or the other.
Thats why I dont think this bid should focus on that part. Focus on a true expansion of the game in terms of growing the game, especially as an alternative to that other shyte they mostly only know about.
Edit: and i'd say a fair few already have the paid subscriptions because of that other game.
Yep, more about ratings and advertising than new subscriptions.You’re perhaps right about subscriptions in WA but one thing I’ll add is the scheduling.
If a Perth bid gets up, they’re likely to play either on Saturdays or Sunday. Super Saturdays are the biggest draw for Fox, so if they could add even another game on that day, then that is potentially advantageous for them. Even the other option at Sunday on 6pm, solves a problem for them.
In any case, adding both over a certain timeframe (which gives incredible flexibility to broadcasters and access to two new markets) would be brilliant. A
I think fox may seem a decent bump in subscriptions maybe 50k to 100k as more viewers in Perth and north shore sign upYep, more about ratings and advertising than new subscriptions.
Either 9.30pm Saturday or 6pm Sunday are good extra slots to have.
I think that was DT, who have heavily pushed Norths for inclusion for a long time, its is sad, but i hope the bears moniker works in WA, there's no hope to have them in sydney more than once a year,.... seriouslyScrolling through the Bears groups and reading other Bears fans opinions on this idea is just sad.
Most of the people supporting the idea are totally delusional about what a WA Bears side would actually look like. More than a few are only onboard because they believe that the team would fail in WA then the license would revert to the Bears…
Whoever pulled the ‘up to 6 games at NSO’ line out of their arse is an absolute merkin.
