Women's sport is the sacrificial lamb of course. SHAME ON ABBOTT AND THE ABC.

Women's sport dumped
Because it's expendable?

Women's sport has come a long way in Australia thanks to the ABC trying to give it as much coverage as possible.
What's happened,the Abbott government happened that's what, they have forced the ABC to do the unthinkable.
It was obvious something would have to go and of course women's sport is the sacrificial lamb.
It's more than just a shame, women's teams are going to loose lucrative sponsership's because of this decision. The ABC was such a huge supporter of women's sport. 
A step back in time that's what it is and its very dark day for women's sport. This is mistake that won't be forgotten. 
Apparently this Liberal government doesn't really put sport ahead of anything else, we are told to be involved in sport, yet where is the equality especially for women's sport.
They're basically short-changing women in every single sense, if the ABC doesn't give women's sport coverage who will, no one!

Was the Advisory Council asked to comment on these decisions.

The Role of the ABC Advisory  Council

  • Either on its own initiative or at the request of the Board, to advise the Board on matters relating to the Corporation’s broadcasting programs.
  • Provide a broad representation of Australian community concerns and interests in relation to programming.
  • Analyse and consider reports and papers, in relation to programming, provided by the ABC.
  • Facilitate communication between the community and the ABC Board.
  • Within the framework of the Council’s annual work plan, carry out community consultation seeking views on ABC programming initiatives.
  • Council can also hold interest group meetings from time to time.
