Honestly, I'd recommend reaching out to Mitch and Simo at the BroncosWeekly Podcast. I think working with them to build both sides would be a good idea. They might even involve some of us on their show to chat shit every once in a while. Many of their listeners would be an asset to BHQ as well, but have negative views based on how it used to be/opinions on other Broncos fans (FB).Are there any non bronxnation types running blogs? We could give them better exposure instead.
My thoughts exactly. This will just lead me to have less interest in the club, leading me to buy less merch, possibly even miss away games that are in Sydney or elsewhere on tv for something else to do.It's tough times in the newspaper game. The Courier Mail primarily generates revenue from three sources: subscriptions; advertisers; and sponsored content, which often masquerades as news (like the travel section). Unless you're extra-ordinarily techno-illiterate you will be blocking ads, so paying for content is becoming increasingly important.
News on the Broncos is a special case. There's a vested interest there from the parent company. The brand is run like an ongoing soap opera, played out across all media, but most of all, in the Courier Mail.
There's a case to be made that making Broncos content free is beneficial for their brand and possibly a gateway drug to making you want to pay to read more stories in the newspaper proper.
It's hard to say whether providing Broncos' news free on the site, and through other sites, would be net profitable for News LTD and even the Courier Mail, but it's a discussion worth having.
Exactly. That's a far smarter business model.. subscribers will just switch away.@McHunt covered most of it, but it's the scale as much as anything else . 10 people might get a chance to read the communal paper over lunch/smoko or whatever, while a few hundred can read it when pasted here.
It would certainly be an interesting exercise for them to make broncos articles free access and see if it drives additional traffic which could be used to justify bumping ad charges.
Haha, you're probably joking, but no. We can't allow it. Best we can do is summarise in our own words.Could 3 or 4 of us post a section each
Not if it's from News LTD, no.Quotes from players or coaches though?
