Do you know something that wasn't in Mark Scott announcement? He said ABC TV would: "Rationalise our television outside broadcast vans and scale back our sports involvement. The ABC is the only broadcaster maintaining its own outside broadcast fleet. With the ABC facing declining audience interest in local sports competitions and some codes chasing commercial opportunities, ABC TV is revising its sports strategy to ensure the cost-efficient use of resources and optimal audience impact. ABC TV will be providing more detail on its revised sports strategy." I agree it doesn't sound promising, but the Shute Shield (or anything else) wasn't specifically mentioned.
