I know we are doing it in the play offs but anyone notice a LOT more Nix coverage, in the press/stuff/etc recently?
 
It's a good thing and I'm thinking the new owners have had a lot to do with it.

Interesting to see the A-League getting good coverage now in the UK papers, at least in the Guardian, who have something nearly every day.

Joe Gorman who writes their A-League material is good value.

Often their coverage of the A-League as a whole is better than the NZ papers...

Excellent series of new season A-League previews for each club coming out one-a-day on the Guardian website:

Sad to read of Kiwi football broadcasting legend Alan Richards passing away aged 91

Did the commentaries for the All Whites matches on the road to Spain 1981-82.

Did TV and radio commentaries for All Whites and other games from 1950's to late 1980's

(and a claim to world fame as the commentator on the first overseas sports broadcast out of China in 1974 for the All Whites v China)

Also a staunch North Shore United club man.

As well as a leading cricket commentator for decades.

Not sure where to put this but the Nix expanded colour pull-out in todays's StarTimes was I thought pretty brill. All the guys in their strip one side, and suited-up on the reverse. And portrayed as individs, not as squad dummies lined up kneeling/standing, facing the camera. Nice one.

How come no comments?

After reading your post I just spent an hour  walking around my Christchurch suburb between about 6 pm and 7 pm until I found the one dairy that still had copies of yesterday's Star-Times.

Agree  - the player portraits are good.

Now I'll have to debate which side of the poster to put on my lounge wall to remind me of when all the games are on.

At this stage i'm leaning towards the action shots in playing strip.

Time to take down my World Cup wall chart from July and replace it with this..

One grumble though - as an anorak I'd prefer the fixture list had space to write in the scores as last year's magazine supplement did.

It also had enough space to cross out the inevitable fixture changes during the season and write in the new dates.

Also, although I know about all the players, I think for the ignorant general public it would have been good to have player biographies and a few little articles like last year's supplement.

If I'd put it together, I'd also have used three more dynamic attacking players as the main figures in the middle of the action shots rather than focusing on Moss, Durante and Sigmund, three defensive players and the least mobile players in the side.

Cheers Jerzy, picked one up from Mojo this morning. 

Think the playing strip side is the best, great to see a team photo done different. Some hilarity on twitter about the Nike logos on the boots being photoshopped out!

I can't even comment on the lead football stories at www.stuff.co.nz! FFS. How do they know how much interest there is if there is no way for the football fans to engage with their site???
