Keep Eagles Home Games Free to Air sign now

Foxtel having exclusive rights to Eagles home games would be a disaster for the long term health of football in WA. The AFL is extremely short sighted to grant Fox the rights as it would reduce the amount of exposure football has in WA.

This is much more serious for football than whether the games are live or not. If the deal goes ahead then there will be a bleak future for WA as a football development state.

If games are exclusively on Fox then, you lose the casual supporter or people who are new to the game from becoming more of a supporter, you lose the families who cannot afford Fox, and you lose the one off football supporters. With the Eagles getting less exposure it will also not be good for the clubs supporter base and sponsorship. Large groups of Eagles supporters would be unable to watch their team. A serious problem for football in WA.

The main result of the deal is that a lot of kids will not watch as much football. Dads that cannot afford to go to the football with their boys, will not be able to afford Fox either. Resulting in many, who would watch an Eagles game not watching an alternate game meaning young people will not watch either. Kids will then get less exposure to football as a game and are then less likely to actually take up the game but more likely to play other sports. If boys dont take up football it will have a negative impact on the eventual number of players and a reduction in the player pool of AFL drafts in the future.
The AFL will be shooting themselves in the foot. Short term gain for long term pain

No Eagles games into Perth on Fox thank you!
