Here's the problem with the ASA. They have become a ponderous legislative entity. There are too many people voting on things they know very little or nothing about. They take too long to bring rules and change into place. I think the "Too big to fail." mentality was in place. When Premier came into play the ASA made a couple of changes but still have not changed their basic business model.Maybe someone at ASA woke up, might have a vision. Cause if I was chasing a dream I'd prob opt for the Premier as a national team. The Premier pulled the rabbit out of the hat, can ASA adapt?
I liken this latest move to the entertainment industry trying to stem online piracy. Instead of out thinking and giving the community what they are looking for the entertainment industry and the ASA are trying to bludgeon everyone into the old business model. I can't see it working. Usually when you force people to do something the reaction is negative because there is someone out there who is will to give them what they ask for.
