This is the reason why I have has Brisbane Heat membership for the past few years, but would love a Gold Coast team.

As much as Tennis tried the same format, and motorsport talks about it, I can't see many other sports succeeding where the 20/20 cricket format has been such a success.

The entertainment is unbelievable, and results sometimes bizarre and unpredictable, I know I watch the Big Bash with more commitment than any other sport - albeit a very dense, 6 week competition.

But both mediums are/will surely be experiencing declining patronage, and will become less relevant as time goes on?

Not sure if News corp alone could provide the oomph required.

Didn't News learn their lesson on the headaches of owning a sport with the Super League debacle?

They happily got rid of their ownership interest in the NRL a few years ago.

That is the angle that surprises me about their interest in buying in?

Perhaps the benefits to the Foxtel package is the incentive to throw the hat in the ring?

Since the Newscorp/Foxtel promo - The Herald Sun in Melbourne (digital version) has had a motorsport article nearly everyday. Quality/newsworthy is very debatable but motorsport is being represented along with a plug.

News is till in there.
The Broncos are the only publicly listed NRL club. The parent company of the Brisbane Broncos is Nationwide News Pty Ltd., a subsidiary of News Limited, which as of 30 June 2007, owns 68.87% of Broncos shares.

they did own storm, but sold them in 2013.
May 20, 2013 - The Melbourne Storm has been sold by News Ltd to a private consortium gathered by NZ entrepreneur Bart Campbell.

But the article below , does bring out a fair point , in regards to owning and running the show, and then buying into teams within the series.

My point was more that they no longer have any ownership of the NRL (they got out in 2012), they are just now effectively one of the participants through the Broncos. (though still have an influence through the Foxtel TV deal)

Not that they really wanted to get into the ownership of any competition back in 1995 of course but had their hand forced to an extent...

Big Bash League Loses $33m For Cricket Australia

I am sure that makes sense

Sort of like how Harry Potter made a $167m loss on a $900m+ gross?

Funny how these "losses" crop up when there's a revenue sharing deal...
