Women's sport got the ice bucket.Yes, the ABC thanks to the coalition has dumped women's soccer.

Happy New Year to women's soccer. I don't think so.

It was a win for Canberra United in the W-League, but a loss for televised women's sport
IT WAS A GREAT GRAND FINAL between Canberra United and Perth Glory, with all the elements that make a game great. There was drama, there was action, the underdogs ended up and all of it great viewing, but of course overarching it all was the sad demise of women’s soccer as a televised sport in Australia — at least for the foreseeable future.
The Abbott Government’s ideological attacks on the ABC mean that the national broadcaster can no longer cover this sport, which I find disgusting.
Will women's soccer after years of struggling to get TV coverage ever recover, its doubtful any commercial channel will pick it up.
