Seb and Karl take a philosophical walk whilst analysing the state of the Australian sporting landscape in the wake of the announcement that then A-League proposes to introduce 2 new franchises. They assess the rationale behind the decision and the commercial state of the A-League and its future. How can the A-League turn its ratings and attendances slump around? Has it lost ground to the NBL and the AFL through AFLW and AFLX? They then discuss the existential threats to the AFL and ponder if the existential threat is the driving force behind the introduction of the AFLX. They also discuss some problems with the AFLW and its future in the Australian sporting landscape. This episode may not be for everyone, but it will certainly get you thinking.
