Abstract

In this article, Murray Phillips and Brett Hutchins use a Marxist-influenced politicaleconomy approach to describe the historical changes in the relationship between Australia’s Rugby League and the media, culminating in the current situation in which Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation controls “almost all commercial dimensions of sporting ownership, production, and delivery.” The authors also describe rugby fans’ resistance to these changes.
