Novak Djokovic wins French Open, will he win the Grand Slam?
Wembley had the shape more of an oval, it was not a rectangle- & it was a fine ground to play tier 1 club & international soccer matches, FA Cups etc. for c. 60 years.Wembley was a former greyhound racing track that hosted English International matches[Exactly] and Cup Finals [Exactly] until it was demolished in 2000.
You are being highly semantic in claiming that the ground was an oval (it wasn’t)...
I am saying tier 1 soccer was played on these European stadia for many decades, without any significant problems- & is continuing.So no clubs in Europe clearly aren’t happy to play on athletic tracks as you claim.
Your comment is absurd & incorrect- that is NOT my logic at all.If anything using your logic AFL should be happy with using rectangular stadiums in states that the sport in not the first preference.
You clearly are the one who is deluded.The delusion here is real.
You are lying again- & you have done so many times on BF. You are trolling GR AF & the AFL in general in NSW etc., & GWS in particular.NRL gets ten times the audience ...
The only thing "soccer shits over" is, for some players, on the grass when fearing/experiencing a (sometimes minor) contact.If you want to talk grassroots soccer shits over every one else.
You have emigrated to Australia from the Britain. Many would consider it to be very inappropriate for you to be trolling Australian culture & AF- some would consider your disrespect is repugnant.Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel so I think even you know you're up against it.
AF is the dominant sport in sthn. NSW & SW NSW ie Broken Hill district. It has recently had significant growth in all NSW & ACT.Afl has very little heritage significance in Sydney BTW.
I have not claimed to represent any taxpayers.Which version of 'the taxpayer' are you claiming to represent?
All good BUT you seem to dismiss the benefits of the expenditure, many of them very hard to put a value on.I have not claimed to represent any taxpayers.
I believe all govts., councils etc. in Australia should spend the taxpayers money wisely, & in the most efficient manner possible- to keep taxes low.
Don't know. Has something happened in the world in past year which has caused ppl to be reluctant to gather in crowds?!What's happening with NRL crowds this season?
So far this weekend they have had crowds of 10,739 SCG 9142 Stadium Australia 5104 Stadium Australia and 4892 Central Coast Stadium. Is t it the weather or the big blowouts casing these low crowds?
Yep the 4k was the crowd number. It was on ABC TV as well but yeah dont know the rating figure.I think that was the crowd, not the TV ratings figures. Not sure what it rated, but it was less than 29k. Was it on FTA as well?
It was a genuine pub league goal that won it too.
whats your point???1. This 7.4.21 article, by soccer author A. Deans, recounts the sad virtual demise of A League reporting on the MSM.
Only The Age & SMH still employ specialist soccer reporters, who also cover other sports now.
2. On the ABC TV "Offsiders" Program, 11.4.21, sports' reporter A. Nicholson said, paraphrasing, the W League has very little visibility in the MSM- soccer commentator S. Hill agreed.
The panel discussed the Matildas going down to Germany 5-2 overnight (at one stage 4-0).
Host K. Underwood said to S. Hill
"it's the women's game [Aust. female pro soccer] that is going to lead football (sic) in the next 3 years..." referring to the Matildas, in the women's soccer World Cup, held in Aust. & NZ in 2023.
S. Hill said "I agree".
(scroll to 11.4- then go to 8 mins.28 secs. - 9 mons.56 secs.)Kelli Underwood joins Alister Nicholson, Elyse Villani and Simon Hill to assess the Matildas first match in over a year, preview the W-League and AFLW Grand Finals, and review the action from the AFL, NRL and the US Masters.iview.abc.net.au
yeah. 2019 for 6K, and that had Sam Kerr and the league was a lot healthier plus without the Covid issues. The league has been in better shapeOk, 4k attendance is probably par for course for the W-League grand final.
Listening to the commentators of the w league GF broadcast they were raving how it was the climax of a sensational season.yeah. 2019 for 6K, and that had Sam Kerr and the league was a lot healthier plus without the Covid issues. The league has been in better shape
perhaps. I must admit I haven't watched a min of w-league this year and they would know. Though, they might just be saying that.Listening to the commentators of the w league GF broadcast they were raving how it was the climax of a sensational season.
Obviously the sporting public in Sydney don't agree by not turning up in decent numbers to the GF and I suggest the WWC Soccer with struggle to get decent crowds apart from matches featuring the Australian and maybe NZ teams and they better hope Australia is in the final!Listening to the commentators of the w league GF broadcast they were raving how it was the climax of a sensational season.
