Amongst all of this..... I heard Dome say something about the Nix looking at ways to increase the revenue from (Sky) coverage. If that is the case, why? Unless AFA are putting some pressure on.

Source?

I've heard Domey talk about increasing crouds (which makes sense as that is direct revenue) but wasn't aware at all of Nix getting a cut of the TV revenue.

It was in his interview with Veitch straight after the interview with Harper. It wasnt about getting more money for the Nix, it was about the Nix helping to get more for the AFA. I thought it funny given what Harper had said about us not contributing commercially. Can someone find the clip? It was near the start of the interview as I didn't hear the end

This was discussed on Domey's last appearance on In The Zone. 

The motivation is to help the FFA drive value out of the rights, which is a hurdle to our licence extension. What's good for them is good for us in this case.

Incredible stamina. No shame. Yellow Fever.

Basically the Phoenix are being pushed to cover for the FFA's incompetence.

Right I see. So if the Phoenix (and I guess all other interested parties like OFC, NZF, FFA and AFC) help pressure Sky to pay more for the rights, then the more likely it is for extension although not necessarily mutually related?

Grumpy old bastard alert

Blackmail, I think it's called.

Urban dictionary defines as: Blackmail refers to a situation that arises when a person threatens another person with some form of punishment if they do not offer some form of concessions.

Rob Morrison said on the Radio that they had nothing to do with previous negotiations, but are going to be involved from now on.

For some people it is all about $$. Questioning that the Phoenix does not belong to the A-League is just wrong. Kiwi teams where always part of it and they took their share to make the competition better. Questioning the nix in Aussie competition and constantly rephrasing it by FOX journos is the cheapest way to create hate and is a simple strategy. The normal TV viewer thinks 'yes why are they in Aussie competition?'. Don't get me started on FOX and specialRupert Murdoch. These is not just some old guy doing TV, FOX using their power for all kind of politics and misinformation, destroy lives and represent the opposite of good journalism. The fish stinks from the head. And Andy Harper with 'own opinion' is part of it. Now I'm getting angry! I should go back to illegal streaming ;-)

The FFA is not helping at all, after the McGlinchey saga, this ist the next endless story. FFA extend the licence, and then take care how to make money with it afterwards, first you need a product to sell. It is not the FOXSKY - League.

The best thing would if we win the title AND the grand final, to get them really pissed. FFA have to send the second best team to the asian cup and if they kick us out, we always can say where where to good for them. Either way, total humiliation.
