  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

That interview this morning was almost unlistenable. The amount of ads Played in each break was outrageous!! In the old days there was a limit of 6 advertisements per break, that law obviously doesn’t exist anymore

I don't listen to SEN live unless i's in the car and can change the station when the ads start.

I jump on the SEN website later and listen to the segments i want to watch. No ads that way

Spot on. I gave up listening live a while back because of the ridiculous amount of ads. The 30min breakfast catch up doesn't have ads, nor does the entire 3 hour show which goes for under 2 hours. That tells you something.  

Simply unlistenable live.

i wouldn't know ... never been there

the idea of a 24/7/365 talkback radio show mainly devoted to afl and hutchenomics is enough to stay clear

Best add ever on SEN was one they didn't do themselves (although there were internal suspects)

Some random never identified as far as i'm aware was putting messages in a bottle saying they won a prize on Rex Hunts fishing show and to call up the station. Dropping them in the bay for people to find.

They got innundated with people calling up to claim there non existant prize.

Never mentioned on air because they didn't want copy cats.

The business section of today's "The Age" has a whole page article devoted to SEN.

https://www.theage.com.au/business/companies/craig-hutchison-s-sports-and-media-empire-on-the-ropes-as-directors-auditor-sound-alarm-20231108-p5eij3.html

It's paywalled, but, in essence, the headline says it all: "Craig Hutchison's sports and media empire on the ropes as directors, auditor sound alarm".

Other interesting points in the article refer to the questionable strategy of owning sporting franchises (SEN owns a netball team and at least one basketball team); while SEN in Melbourne rates between 3-4%, its ratings in Brisbane and Sydney are dismal (0.9% and 0.7% respectively); SEN's horse racing coverage is apparently a "cash cow" for the company; about five people, including Hutchison own about 60% of SEN; Nine Entertainment (which also owns The Age) holds a small piece of SEN through 3AW.

To be fair to SEN, I think the headline might be a touch dramatic. It's correct that the financial performance of SEN has seen it burn through cash, but that has been during a period of acquisitions. Now that SEN has a national footprint, the acquiring stage would appear to be over, so SEN may now be making money.

It's an interesting dilemma  for  its management.

I presume Ratings are important, but the reason the station is so hard to listen to is all the advertising. I don't count them, but sometimes I think  there must be  about  ten ads between discussion segments.

Obviously their  revenue must  depend  largely on advertising,but they just couldn't have more than they do now.

If the ratings are low, they can' t charge the advertisers more than they  do now.

I occasionally ask a friend  "did you hear  that interview on SEN". Invariably, they"ll reply...I just can't listen to that station  because of all the ads!"

Yep. The amount of ads is why I've stopped listening.  You are right, they can't have more. It's already more than a 3rd of airtime. I listen to the occasional Corn free breakfast replay (which doesn't include the ads). La Dee-vina makes some good observations, but you'd still be a tad nervous as an employee.
