Nine's Wide World Of Sport
Nine's Wide World of Sports (formerly called Nine Sports from 1970 to 1980) is a long running sports anthology brand on Australian television, aired on the Nine Network. All major sports, events and series covered by the network are broadcast under this brand, the flagship sports being rugby league (National Rugby League), cricket (Australian Summer of Cricket), spring and autumn horse racing, swimming and golf (British Open). Australian rules football was also aired until Nine lost the Australian Football League free-to-air broadcast rights in 2006.

“We are not certain, we are never certain. If we were we could reach some conclusions, and we could, at last, make others take us seriously.
In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
—Benjamin Franklin (17061790)
“I wish glib and indiscriminate critics of industrialists had some conception of the problems that have to be met by factory management.... General condemnation of employers is a favorite indoor sport of the uninformed intelligentsia who assume the role of lance- bearers for labor.”
