According to ABC TV news, Mr Murdoch jnr & Mr Gordon have already signalled their intention to buy the whole thing together.

Funny how the guys who made it collapse by pulling their finance had a plan all along. They will be able to arm twist the ACCC to get around the pesky ownership rules saying that nobody else will.

While it would appear that it will be business as usual in terms of what is broadcast by 10 (unless the administrator pulls the pin), the elephant in the room is how much of the tv rights deal may have to be foregone by SCA.

While Foxtel pay the bulk of the $40ish million per annum deal, and depending on how the contract is written, may actually be liable for the full amount. But if not, and there is a separate deal directly between SCA and 10, this will blow a whole in the budget as any amounts outstanding can be written off as irrecoverable with a new owner not going to take on 10's outstanding debts. A new owner is likely to cherry pick as to what parts of the business he takes on, so should the deal to broadcast Supercars not be profitable, 10 may only continue to broadcast on renegotiated terms.

Watching the Townsville Inside Supercars show with the Live audience and it got me thinking about the 3 Supercars shows that we have on air now.
There's Inside Supercars and Supercars Life on Fox, plus RPM on CH10..
I try and watch what I can each week, but wanted to see what others watch and why or why not?

RPM is a shadow of its former self these days, it comes across as more lifestyle then motorsport. Don't really care about Kate road testing cars or meeting celebs that don't have a massive interest in motorsport. Back in ye olde days when the likes of Greg Rust and Bill Woods hosted the show it was a lot more 'serious' for one of a better word in discussing the issues of the day at length. Not just for Supercars but F1, MotoGP etc.

Inside Supercars has really replaced RPM for that type of discussion in regards to the category

I think Ten should follow suit on their recent A League acquisition, where the network takes the entire FOX production & commentators with the Supercars coverage. As well as other sports they have, like MotoGP and Rugby

In theory yes but with Ten in voluntary administration I don't see it becoming a reality

Ten is actually in Receivership which is a whole different kettle of fish. Doesn't change the point you're making though.

that would take the impartiality out of the Supercars coverage completely, it's already bad enough that the only "lone ranger" is Larko...

Admittedly it's been a while since i've watched MotoGP on Channel 10, do they really take the Fox Sports coverage of the races?

No they don't. They have Mark Howard and Daryl Beattie hosting in the Ten studio. Then once the race comes, they take the world feed, with Nick Harris, Matt Birt and Dylan Gray

I've always liked Nick Harris, back as far as his commentary days on Channel 9 with Darrell Eastlake and Barry Sheene, but I wish Channel 10 would take the BTSports British feed for MotoGP with Keith Heuwen & Julian Ryder (the same team that did World Superbikes in the 90s).. afterall with F1 Ch10 they take the Ch4 English commentary feed rather than the Sky Sports feed that Foxtel uses...

...I also reckon it would be good if Channel 10 did their own commentary to suit their own needs on the Supercars...but given the networks current state that would probably cost too much...
