How about instead of Televising any 1 game a week on FTA ! at one time slot, we Televise just the local teams games to that state.
Clearly this has never been tried before and is a new concept but might work !
I'll put it in an example: Say for instance, the 1 game 'WA' will get is the Perth Glory game each week. Melbourne Victory gets to see the Victory game.
I have this feeling it might garner more support for teams as the actual fans of those teams will get to watch there team play.
Put it in super low quality resolution, so that if the fan wants to get evicted (i.e. can't meet their rent & live on the street) they have that option in place.
