If you think another channel will be allowed to broadcast it then you will be wrong, the AFL will firmly instruct the WAFC to not allow another channel to market the WAFL and pump it up.
If 7 don't put it on I think the WAFL broadcast days are over.
The AFL pull the strings.

C7 ran the show. Who wouldn't be pissed off watching a season ruined by Freo in the finals. Its all about Freo & west Coast. Nothing else minds.. Just check the crowds at the matches. WAFL is dead.


Yeah the negative feedback re Peel makes it pretty un attractive for any sponsor to be associated with the brand.

All the other State leagues are broadcast, SANFL and VFL I find it hard to imagine WA will be the only state with no local league coverage, it may mean WAFC is paying more if a sponsor cannot be found, if Maccas pull out they are in a world of pain.

It wont matter who picks it up Ch 9 10 or 7 they will all need sponsors to broadcast it, they are commercial ventures that are in it to make a quid, if 7 cant find them than neither will they, I cant see Ch 10 picking it up just in WA. Forget the ABC they are done and dusted with footy and just about all sport - they pulled out not they other way around.


Thats not quite right Bazza,
ABC Perth wanted to.
ABC nationally didn’t as they wanted to sell out OB trucks and close the TV production unit to save money.
So, ABC Perth told them, on the quiet if you come to us... a deal can be done... but we (ABC Perth) can’t come to you as the National TV guys don’t want a deal.
So....
IF the WAFL had committed to a deal with ABC Perth the ABC Nationally would have been forced to keep an OB unit in WA and do the deal.
However, the former COO had a bonus in his contract if he got the WAFL on commercial TV (as the WAFC was bizarrely obsessed with having a media deal with SevenWest) and so WAFC didn’t even try to talk to the ABC locally.
Deal done with 7 - the COO took his bonus and left.
Interesting the politics of it all.
ABC Perth no longer have an OB truck so without 7, 9 or 10 WAFL coverage is dead forever

It was a NATIONAL decision ABC pulled out of all State Football Coverage, the ABC is not run from Perth, the Perth office was downsized long ago, the decisions are mate in Ultimo NSW. ABC were gone just as they were in Victoria and SA, There is NO ABC TV Coverage anywhere in Australia any longer - Perth Office was irrelevant, ABC left football end of story football didn't leave it.

Local ABC staff in stunned silence


Tuesday, 25 November 2014 8:28AM




Local ABC staff were mostly stunned to silence yesterday, after the public broadcaster's cuts were revealed - including veteran Victorian sports presenter Drew Morphett being given the axe.

As the shockwaves of the $254 million cuts reverberated across Australia, Perth staff were privately distraught at the loss of local jobs and productions but were reluctant to speak because of the uncertain future.




One of the biggest shocks at the network was the likely loss of three sports voices - Morphett, Dan Lonergan and Peter Newlinds, as part of the paring back of the network's sports coverage.

The ABC's coverage of the WAFL will end, along with that of the W-League, WNBL and VFL and NTFL football matches. _The West Australian _ was told the trio of ABC Grandstand broadcasters were in "consultation" about their positions but would almost certainly leave.

Former ABC stalwart Glenn Mitchell expressed his shock at the departure of his former colleagues but was also wary to speak candidly given his wife Karen Tighe is the presenter of ABC Grandstand.

"It is a painful day for all my ex-colleagues, whether they be staying or going," Mitchell wrote.

"Difficult to see how ABC can continue to cover Olympic and Commonwealth Games given budget cut(s). Even some domestic radio rights may be an issue."

No WA sports reporting jobs will go, but five news journalists and producers are set to leave - a process described by 7.30 NSW presenter Quentin Dempster as "industrial execution".

Veteran newsreader Alan Knight read bulletins yesterday, his birthday, despite being told he would be leaving the network after more than 20 years.

Radio Mornings show host Geoff Hutchison attempted to lighten the mood on social media, but the feedback from other staff was mostly grim.

"ABC cuts hit hard. WA and SA asked to share tea and coffee-making facilities. 'Hello Adelaide, are you finished with the spoon'," he wrote.

Colin Barnett said he was upset to see 7.30 WA go, along with the rest of the State-based 7.30 productions.

"I understand ABC has to work within its budget but it would be a shame to see that occur at the expense of West Australian content and programming," the Premier said.

Local reporter Emma Wynne tweeted: "I still have a job. Many of my colleagues will be going. Will miss some really good friends in the office."

And Perth-based Radio National presenter Kirsti Melville said plenty of bad news was being delivered in WA, as well as across the country.

"Lots of closed doors around the joint today. Sad to know what's happening behind them," she wrote.

The axing of coverage of the WNBL and W-League was met with anger and disappointment from WA's most prominent women's sporting teams.

WRONG!! Read again, if The WAFC had approached the ABC in Perth as they instructed the WAFC to do on the quiet then the National body would have had to have maintained it! These are the FACTS!
