    Peter C, soccer is usually behind a paywall here too. I don’t think that explains it entirely.

    I’m confused why the Netball WC was organised to conflict with the soccer WC, that was not a good move from a publicity or timing perspective. I also don’t think the negative tone of media coverage linking everything netball in Australia back to Gina Rinehart has helped. There’s now a persistent negative tone to any commercial news reporting relating to the Diamonds and netball generally, which is frustrating. She has a lot of media sway.

    That aside, netball being a “women’s sport” and being treated differently than women playing a conventionally male sport is an interesting thing to ponder.
