al_ex – you said in another thread that the salary cap between NZ and Australia was only going to grow, yet you say here the Aus cap was always unsustainable?
I always thought the Super Shot was a sign of weakness and a lack of belief from Nine in the fundamental product. Netball Australia were ambitious however they have bitten off more they can chew. The Australian Federal Government also gave NA a bailout not long ago, which was also due to SSN not delivering financially as hoped. I want SSN to succeed but it amuses me that the broadcasters went on about the “world’s best competition” when they need to get their backyard in order first.
I also worry about the NZ deal, as Sky’s subscriber base is shrinking I understand.
