WR, I've actually been watching more of the A-League this season than I ever have. Of course the standard isn't great, but I quite enjoy it, anyway.
Honestly, I'm not sure what to say about the matter regarding relegation/promotion. No idea how they're going to solve that one.
Yeah, i watch quite a bit of it/read up on the main stories
What are your thoughts on the Newcastle and CCM situations?
Although i somewhat dislike the CCM they have produced/given a chance to some of the most talented Australian players since the golden generation e.g. Matt Ryan, Sainsbury, Jedinak, Rogić etc. I'm not sure why their fans aren't really turning out because football is the only sport that the region has a professional side in and at least they always have a few talented youngsters coming through. It would be a shame for Australian football to lose a club that encourages youth development
On the other hand, i have no real sympathy for Newcastle. The last time they made the finals was 4 seasons ago and this season they look destined to finish last. When Tinkler is involved, there is always trouble (Newcastle Knights). They have been fielding garbage teams for years now and although they have more members than CCM i think the fans are starting to turn their backs on the club recently.
There's talk of a new South Sydney side possibly being an option for expansion/replacement of teams and the other obvious option is Canberra (good crowds during the Asian Cup, successful W-league side, they have produced good footballers in the past, the FFA Centre of Excellence is there etc.)
