But aren't we now staring at a number of teams handing in RECs anyway? If GTR's mail is right, maybe a field as low as 20 for next year, isn't that what we were facing before Supercars sold the farm to Fox?

Which may have been a catalyst to make some real changes to the operating costs rather than propping up the series until the next TV negotiation.

Let's face it, all it really did was dig a bigger hole for the series to climb out of once the deal is over. An awful strategic blunder.

We'll find out sooner or later.

Couple of articles in the Fairfax media today about Fox pulling back on spending when it comes to sports - might force supercars into FTA or streaming:

Fascinating! Bye bye A-League, by the look of things.

The greater risk assessment that many of these executives probably won't look at is what are the ramifications for not owning the sports rights.

Australia, like New Zealand, is miles behind the 8 Ball in terms of internet capacity and technology. In New Zealand, we have seen the rights to F1 and support races move from Sky Television to Spark Sport, a new division set up by what was Telecom here, as they divest into wider revenue streams on the back of diminishing revenues.

In F1 alone, we have seen a number of teething troubles. Spark Sport have the rights to broadcast the Rugby World Cup later this year and about 10-15% of the population won't have internet fast enough to stream in any capacity or in decent capacity - that is, a download of 10 MBps.

At a time like this, with a technology shift, we have never so many sporting codes so vulnerable as their broadcast rights revenue has been the basis for many. This poses to be the biggest upheaval since the end of tobacco sponsorship.

Crazy to think that those on the PayTV teet were proclaiming paytv to be the future and audiences needed to adapt their expectations - all the while Foxtel was losing $417 million per year!

If I were in Supercars management, I'd be considering my options, cozying up to every free to air network manager possible.

I really hope we don't go back to a FTA as the first & main provider.. Foxtel was the best thing to happen to Supercars!

The problem is, that's for existing fans. But if it's not FTA, how do you pick up new fans, or casual watchers who'll leave it on if it's on, but won't go looking for it and especially not sign up for it?

SBS with Chad Neylon and Will Hagon as the commentators would be excellent!
