The Paradox Of Indonesian Football

If you're watching the Sriwijaya v Persipura game there are some wonderful insights, if you know what to look for, as to why the game is in such a mess and why it shouldn't be.

Fans waving banners supporting the TV channel that is broadcasting the game live. On the one hand, the channel is so insecure, despite being owned by the family that just about runs the ISL, they need to have fans 'tell' them how wonderful they are!

Check the home team's bench and see the politicians taking up all the space, forcing the coach to the margins.

See how full the stadium is for the game and wonder how much 'official' merchandise they are wearing.

Add that little lot together and you can understand why the game here ain't gonna change any time soon.
