Fox and Rugby Australia to part ways

Post by Twist »

Rugby Australia look to be moving away from broadcast media and onto streaming. Sounds risky, Raelene.

From Fox Sports;
Head of Fox Sports Peter Campbell has responded to media reports that the broadcaster is set to part ways with Rugby Australia after a new broadcast rights deal could not be reached.

Mr Campbell said rugby union would remain on Fox Sports for 2020, but decisions about broadcast rights from 2021 were in the hands of Rugby Australia.

“We never comment on commercial negotiations or speculation about broadcast rights,” Mr Campbell said.

“Fox Sports will continue to be the home of rugby union with all Super Rugby, the Rugby Championship and Wallabies games in 2020.

“The rugby rights from 2021 onwards are a matter for Rugby Australia.”

Cord cutting, especially for younger demographics.

They are looking to built an audience rather than bleed one.

That's easier to suggest when you aren't the 5th sport in a country bleeding money and player numbers along with a number of PR disasters recently.

It's fine to suggest conservative options but they're kinda f%~ked without a radical change in fortune (both meanings).

And that will make a huge number of Aussie players & supporters very happy. A CEO promoted above their managerial ability

That applies to over 50% of CEOs in the world. What is the saying? "You get promoted up to your level of incompetence", or something like that.

The Peter Principle. Although one of my old workplaces had a clever way to deal with incompetence at a given level - a side wades promotion.
