Tony Sage is 'standing down' all of Perth's players and staff, ie, no longer paying them. 

First of many?

A Jets player has Carona virus and the FFA has stood down 70% of their staff without pay too. Lean times coming for the A-League.

Teams will have to cut costs now. Some may not survive.

Nah, I've worked form home off and on for years - I'm way more productive.

So have I and I love it.  Now try with a four year old off kindy :'(  My wife works for an essential service so i've got about 4 hours work done over the past few days!

Edit: Have to add, we are incredibly lucky though, wife has so far kept all her hours and pay, and although my work has reduced, the subsidy will cover most of it.  Very grateful that we are in this position when others are struggling.

Yep, it can only work if you have an area which is separate from your living area or family areas to work.

Exactly.  My wife goes into the spare bedroom/converted office, shuts the door, and she's away, just like she's at work, except with her own personal chef to make her lunch!  Me, i'm stuck in the lounge in full view of the attention hungry monster!

A Phoenix coach tests positive for covid? 


As well as a Jets player.  It was inevitable, and another reason why trying to play out the season was ridiculous.

One news saying a Phoenix player has possibly contracted the virus. 😢

Scary times.

Very good item on tvone sportsnews about the Nix. Did the Payne and staff member stories, with Jets player story without any shock horror slant,then a very positive item about Tim Brown, the generous All Birds shoes donation and linking him back to the Nix several times.

My wife, an A&E nurse here in Bucks, UK scored a pair off All Birds UK. Best freebee any nhs staff have had.  She's very impressed by what Tim and the other owners have done.  It's also worked wonders for the brands profile in the UK.

Half of my colleagues in Engineering at LHR have it (Covid) so the rest of us are in line to get it or have had it already (most likely).

I am sure it would annoy some people but wouldn’t the Nix qualify for Govt business support? It may be sport but it’s still a business with the same structures as any other business. They sell a product in the form of entertainment. They are a registered company, have paid staff, they pay their taxes. I can’t see why the club should not have the same support. The govt said it won’t let businesses collapse or workers suffer because of the virus. The Nix are no different to any other NZ business IMO.

Leeds United have made their players take a massive pay cut.  Can see many bankrupt sports teams and unemployed players very soon.

Agree, though doubt Nix as a standalone business pay much in tax.

Yep, you'd hope so. Could be, thanks to the our government the nix come into next season (if it happens) more intact and better prepared than other teams.

You'd think a pro team playing in a foreign league and not under the national body wouldn't be high on a hand-out list

It's open to all NZ businesses in order to keep people employed, plenty of companies with no real value to NZ will be recieving handouts as well as companies who probably don't need it.

I wasn't talking about the wage subsidy.

I was.

As far as other susbsidies go, there is the context of the Phoenix being the only professional channel for the worlds biggest game available to most kiwis.

Well just from a practical point of view- most of their business and staff are in NZ, so an NZ business surely? This is about everyone surviving not judging business merits.
