Crashy

Ron Walden (29)
I must agree that I have had a fair bit of timber in the trouser region seeing all those ads at AO. The Northern Beaches of Sydney has a stack of bus stop ads.
Makes me nervous, if after all this publicity that Australians don't tune-in in great numbers (which is extremely likely) then the game is more fucked than I thought.
Fingers crossed.
As a family who pays - per months - $90 for foxtel, $10 for netflix, $10 for spotify - I can't justify another $20 a month for Stan. The kids love foxtel so we're not getting rid of it so I'll see how 9GEM's coverage goes on friday night.

Cheika made a comment as Wallaby coach that he doesn't do analysis of opposition..


Direct quote from article https://www.smh.com.au/sport/rugby-...an-sport-commentary-team-20210216-p572t7.html

“Obviously I have an interesting perspective because I have been on the other side. If you have an opinion, it’s based on evidence, not just a thought. It’s also about trying to connect the dots for people around what players and coaches are thinking or doing as opposed to judging them. I won’t be going on TV to judge anybody.”

And both have really interesting backgrounds and perspective. Coaching, grassroots, playing both here and abroad. I'm keen to see how they go.

Should be a bit of colour.

Really? Both Campo and Cheika have track records of actually being interesting, unlike Kearns.

I generally agree. The only potential problem with Campo is that he's often a bit of a downer on the modern game. I think one problem with the Fox commentary team was that they'd sometimes be a bit too negative about the sport and the spectacle, as if watching the game through more of a rugby league lens. I really hope the Nine/Stan team don't fall into this too much.

I understand Chekia, he is a recent Wallabies coach. Campo is a bit old for my taste. I was hopefully they'd unearth some new, young talent, someone who'd just finished playing.

anyone know the deal with the Shute Shield? One match a week simulcast on FTA/Stan? Only on Stan? More than one match? Google didnt help.

I really disliked Kearns and thought he never added much to the conversation, but at least I could understand him....

The number of matches on FTA will drop from one a week (as it was on ABC/7Mate) to being a handful throughout the season, unfortunately. But at least one a week on Stan.
