That's exactly what I thought.
My guess is that is exactly what happened.

Also now it makes a lil more sense the fact that both Bozza and Slater have been so outspoken about the sacking of Ange, in hope that the extra headlines may boost interest and ratings and increase their brands. Obviously hasn't worked.

I am surprised by Bozza being brought back a peg, being such a well known identity in the game.

I would think there is a grain of truth in this, if only for the reason they're not actually doing much work anymore. They used to go all night with preier league coverage. Take away EPL and what do you do, get paid the same amount to talk about HAL for 2 hours?

Yeah fair point. Definitely a content issue for Bozza and Slater. 
Rudan however was never on the panel for EPL (i don't believe) so I wouldn't say it was content related but probably inside shakeup/payback for hi behavior perhaps. He wasn't bad on the panel, was very serious and not very bubbly.

Good point.  Makes sense entirely.  Surprised about Rudan though.  I thought his analysis comments added value.  Bozza and Slater are ex players.  Rudan is an ex player and a current coach.  

Shame about Mel and the stalker.  I thought she was a lovely girl when I met her.  Very down to earth and easy to talk to.  I hope her new BF turns out OK.  The form guide doesnt look good, but people can change.

Slater on the other hand...

They need Rudan for his tactical analysis. 
Slater can fuck right off. The bloke has no idea.

Rudan is good for the tactical components but yes ultimately not having the EPL meant Bozza and Slater had less work to do, so can get paid less and do more HAL work making Rudes a little less essential.
A part time female analyst or two couldn't hurt, especially seeing how popular our code is beocming with females. Barbieri I imagine would be one. Gill the other? De Vanna?

Its always amusing the negative posts re this ex player, or ex coach or whatever be it commentary or an article..
Then in later years when suddenly gone its RIP mate a treasure to the game lol......seriously the armchair critics are entertainment.
If you don't like don't listen ! change channels, don't read  in todays world very easy.

Rudes does bring in the other angle which brings great balance BUT 2 company 3's a crowd I guess.
No, Rudes was never up that late for EPL coverages.
Its was Peacock Slater and Bozza.

You idiots. I posted the Rudan-Mel Stalking Incident here 4 months ago.

Rudan also ducked up on air by trying to get FBK to Sydney some years ago.

On the upside, Steve Crawley didn't ask Rude's to wear a skirt. The female content aspect is becoming like OHS, out of control.

Shame about Rudan, always thought he is one of the best pundits they have. Very insightful and goes against the opinions of the more experienced presenters rather than just agreeing with everything like some do. As for the female workers, lets hope their more like Mel and less like Tara as even though Rushton has been at Fox a few years now I still think she is well below average, particularly on the sideline where she is awful.

Can't stand interviewers who do the old, "How did it feel to score the winner?". Obviously it felt good, we know that.

Or those half time interviews when the players are out of of breath and cant be stuffed answering stupid questions.

Agree. 

Rudan I feel was too pro Sydney on tv. It gets a bit much. 

Change Meredith with Broich
Kosmina will probably go soon when FC BC come in. 
Timmy Everywhere will most likely pop up after this season if he isnt 100% on the coaching side

The worst of it all is the match callers when they keep talking about every but the game and just rant on about their opinions. That is what the pre post and half time is for.

The presenter for the W-league is really good. Amy Duggan. I personally think she's better than Tara or Mel.

ALSO she's a former Matilda so can do presenting and analysis. Win-win.

Agreed, probably the most annoying thing, you'll be watching and enjoying the game and half way there dribble you wonder what the heck they are even talking about. Certainly nothing to do with the game at hand and sometimes completely not even football related :laugh:
