    1. Seven got lazy because they had a good relationship with TA, who let them have the tennis for very little for years because the event raked in $300m in foreign rights, which was encouraged by Miller. Seven didn’t let it go they were out maneuvered by Nine who put in a fake bid for cricket, screwed over their partner Ten costing them the BBL, because they had already put in a bid for more than twice what was Seven was paying to TA. But yes Seven is very unhappy and in debt. The Tests haven’t been interesting but the shorter BBL season has resulted in bigger crowds and a bit of buzz, and the finals should do well.

      1. Big Bash has still been doing pretty poor, audiences down on last year when they improved a little and so many abaodnoments or delays due to rain, one was due to bad pitch and some bad performances continued from some bigger teams/larger cities’ teams.
