It seems to be the other way round here. Coalface saying the A league is sh*te despite never watching it.
 
I've never heard anyone say anything like what is said in that article.

"A-League snob" - has a nice ring to it.  I will insist that Aklders call me that. 
 
Or Plastic C*nt - either is OK.

Nice J82. Loving your work recently.
 
I've found more than a few that have trashed the NRFL as being garbage in comparison to the Premiership but then they don't want to go watch it in summer cause they would rather do family stuff on a Sunday. I've said it once and I'll say it again - make it Saturday 2pm and you will get more people along. The lads get the shopping done with the wife in the morning, afternoon they can go to the football and still have Sunday to do stuff around home.
 
Also by the same token, if you get matches which feature Manwatu, you are going to be watching rubbish. Waikato aren't flash but there is some football skill around it. The top 4 really do set themselves apart.

Grumpy old bastard alert

I remember the heady days of 05-06, when Manawatu came 2nd in the league. Good times!

If 15,000 thousand aucklaners turned up to watch the AWs last week, then surely they too are a cancer on local football.

@ardrigh has put in some good questions, I suggest people retweet them, so maybe they will get picked. Especially the one regarding Kiwi's being domestic players for all A-League clubs.

Pretty much only soft questions so far. Looking into a FFA Cup for next season, looking into increasing the bench sizes, and looking into having breaks for FIFA windows.

I got a question answered and surprisingly it wasn't "Do you like puppies?".

Craig Foster's top 10 players. I would have had Wee Mac in the top 10, he has been fantastic this season.

I agree with most of them, would have done Milligan rather than Celeski. No clue how Chapman is there.

latest announcement from the FFA, FA cup comp by 2015, plus promotion/relegation - interesting that the suggested start date is the same as our term expires. http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/football/8298966/FFA-consider-Cup-comp-promotion-relegation

So does the restructuring of the state league system make that kind of like a conference system, with national playoffs?

To me, it sounds more like they are separate leagues, with an Australian 'Champions League' for the highest placed teams after them. And then the winner gets the chance to go into the A-League, kinda like how the usual Champions league winners get to go into the Club World Cup.

They want promotion/relegation to meet some AFC targets but doubt they would make it very easy for the National Premier League clubs (They couldn't use APL because of Lawn Bowls).

Bloody lawn bowls. The 'sport' is a cancer on the A-League.
