This has been discussed at length by the WP Football in Australia task force. If you have an issue, feel free to contribute to the discussion; however "reporting this" will do nothing. Rjbsmith (talk) 08:23, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Well done mate... I was going to set this page up myself - excellent. We live in a beautiful part of the world!

Vandalism on A-League Grand Final[edit]

Reverting the post made by De132Wiki was the incorrect course of action from an encyclopedic point of view as the match has concluded. Yours truly, De132Wiki — Preceding undated comment added 08:57, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

While not vandalism, from an encyclopedic point of view your edit was incorrect as the result was 2-1, not 4-2 as you claimed. Please do not post content that is inaccurate. Rjbsmith (talk) 09:03, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

CCM 2012-13[edit]

  1. why are you using suburbs and not cities? suburbs are only recognizable usually to the people of that city (and not all of them too). The location is to know if it is a home game or an away game, and the city is enough for that (is it in Sydney or is it in Melbourne, NOT is it in Bankstown or is it in Epping).
  2. why are you mixing A-League colours with International flags, both colours/flags has to be from the same tier, otherwise it makes no sense.
--SuperJew (talk) 10:40, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
  1. For smaller venues, the city does not provide any indication of where the venue is actually located. In addition, with the exception of tournaments the ordering of the teams is sufficient to identify which side is the home team and which is the away side.
  2. The national flag is used when participating in international tournaments (see the AFC Champions League pages for an example).

Again, if you believe that there is a valid reason for changing pages en masse, discuss it at the task force talk page first. Rjbsmith (talk) 10:51, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

In addition, your rationale of using the city for identifying whether it is a home or away game fails when teams such as Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers play games against other Sydney-based teams (or indeed against each other). Rjbsmith (talk) 11:03, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

  1. It provides indication of which city it is located in, which is more useful to most of the world, and probably Australians.
  2. your bizarre usage of flags is the only season page I've seen. in all the rest there is no mix. in A-League games the team's colours are used, and in not A-League games international flags are used. it makes no sense to have team colours on one side, and a International flag on the other.

--SuperJew (talk) 11:10, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

  1. For the target audience for the article (A-League supporters, in particular Mariners supporters) the suburb is more useful to identify the location of the venue than placing it somewhere in a city of 4 million people.
  2. In that case why did you assign the club flag to Central Coast Mariners Academy? At the time the game was played that team was owned and operated by Central Coast Football rather than Central Coast Mariners FC. By your reasoning an international flag should have been used for both sides as it was not an A-League game.

Frankly with the exception of actual international games (such as the Menpora Cup and AFC Champions League games) the flags are unnecessary and should not have been added in the first place. I would rather see them removed from the page as they provide no extra value, but if they are to remain then the correct club flags should be used. Rjbsmith (talk) 11:33, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

A mistake, I thought it was part of CCM. having mixed flags is definitely not helpful, and looks very amateur. --SuperJew (talk) 11:47, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

own goal in NUJ vs CCM match.[edit]

you corrected it to Sainsbury, as shown in the CCM club report. but ultimatealeague and the ffa report give it to Pasfield. --SuperJew (talk) 09:08, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

The World Game have also given the goal to Sainsbury; furthermore Graham Arnold refers to the goal being credited to Sainsbury in the post-match interview (video). Rjbsmith (talk) 11:01, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2013–14 A-League, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fábio Ferreira (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

A-League game attendances[edit]

Hi, I noticed you often add attendance of A-League games during the game. I was wondering where you get the information from? --SuperJew (talk) 08:29, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

The attendances are typically tweeted by the clubs involved - as well as the @ALeague account - during the second half, and are also announced during the broadcast. Rjbsmith (talk) 08:42, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks a lot :) --SuperJew (talk) 08:57, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

naming of Central Coast Stadium[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you changed the name of Bluetongue Stadium to Central Coast Stadium on the A-League page, based on naming rights. Has the sponsorship stopped. Could you direct to a source please? I couldn't find one and the report of the most recent game says Bluetongue Stadium. --SuperJew (talk) 17:31, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

SABMiller announced on 23 January that Bluetongue Brewery would be shutting down by the end of the year, with the brand being phased out; for example the Bluetongue website is no longer available.
The Central Coast Mariners have referred to the ground as Central Coast Stadium in promotional material and match reports since The F3 Derby in Round 16; the club's match report for the Round 18 game against Melbourne Victory also makes reference to Central Coast Stadium. Rjbsmith (talk) 07:00, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
I think it might be wrong though to change the template of ALeagueVenue Bluetongue, as that changes all of the instances, while it seems that the use of Central Coast Stadium has only returned since R16. --SuperJew (talk) 21:33, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

sources for match details[edit]

Hi,

was just wondering after I saw your correction on last match (Phoenix vs Heart) from Own goal to goal by Wielaert... Do we base ourselves only on FFA reports? Because ultimatealeague, soccerway and worldfootball mark it as an own goal. What do you think? --SuperJew (talk) 07:03, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Personally I would consider a match report from the national federation to be the authoritative record for a game. Rjbsmith (talk) 07:21, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
That definitely sounds logical to me. The problem I can see rising is that when people update players caps+goals on pages they usually use soccerway as their source (though I use a mix with ultimatealeague, I have found that way sometimes mistakes on ultimatealeague and have contacted them and they have corrected it). The problem is I haven't found a way to contact soccerway about errors. Well, I'll tell ultimatealeague anyway, and hope it'll be alright. --SuperJew (talk) 07:26, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
ultimatealeague's answer: "Have a feeling that will be changed. Clear own goal off Moss with the ball rebounding off the crossbar, back into play. We'll keep an eye on it" --SuperJew (talk) 07:32, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
