Remember when everyone was up in arms and outraged when Hutchy went through with a flamethrower to half the SEN presenters that they were going to switch over to Macquarie?

Station closes due to bad ratings...once again, fake twitter outrage was all for nothing.
Macquarie has better presenters than SEN, the problem is with Macquarie you have to listen to them talk about rugby though

SEN has been running for 15 years and it’s ratings are still poor.

To me it wasn't so much the League talk more so the Sydney centric vibe of the station. It just felt it was much forced to have AFL or a Melbourne representation.

Some shows where a lot more balanced like Ox and mark and James Willis in the afternoons I could tolerate he seemed to have a good knowledge of all sports. But for the most part it was to Sydney centric for my liking.

If we flip it around, would RL fans feel SENers are forced to talk rugby league?

I think being forced is better than nothing at all. I reckon they did a decent job, considering they know little about the game.

the morning show was very sydney centric yes. the two guys are seemingly from a bygone era. beers, drinking, RSLs, parties.

Corrrect, unfortunately we have this quirk in Australia’s two biggest cities sporting wise and that’s why such a station can’t work and clearly hasn’t. Would be best to just concentrate on there own sporting stations locally.

No because rugby talk on SEN is purely restricted to the Melbourne Storm and state of origin and neglects the other clubs
