Re: The fumbleball game as big as Origin

Don't know who is stirring the pot here, didn't see such comments.
Game played today.
Battle of the bridge.
Almost a sellout, 20000 today..
Giants need more attendance figures like this, they have the memberships.

Re: the NRL is now the premier domestic sport to watch in NZ

The NZRU needs to stop cowering in the corner like some frightened has been and come out swinging punches, show some pride. To change time slots in fear of being beaten by the NRL is weak, pathetic and unacceptable for the countries leading professional competition. It is not a good look for the fan...

Re: WOMENS AFL & NRL

AFLW is the premiere club sport by a huge margin. It is far better to watch than the sloppy uncoordinated NRLW in which trys are either too easy to score or way to difficult with nothing much in between, a sorry spectacle indeed. Look at the dreadful crowd figures for general home and away games. ht...

Re: giggleball legend fumes because NRL is leading the way

The only way AFL can do a State Of Origin is to have an East vs West battle. WEST (WA, SA, NT) vs EAST (Vic, NSW, Qld, Tas) Maybe call is STATES OF ORIGIN.. Is really no other way it can be done. So then every area is included in Australia, and still a battle of talent. States of Origin is a very g...

Re: 147 people

Crowd figure quoted was close to 8000.
They deserve more.
Would like to see a crowd of at least 15 to 20 thousand given population of Western Sydney and the Giants fine form this year.

Re: the NRL about to show fumbleball how its done

There is nothing magic about it.
The closest thing to magic about this over exposed non event is the ability to pull free tickets from out of a hat.
If it's anything like last year's fiasco only half the people with tickets will bother to show up.

Re: Darwin , RL heatland

Darwin AFL heartland, it's part of the culture. Sold out GC Suns vs Geelong game shows a very passionate fan base for Australian football in general. There is more, many of the fans are also keen participants of the game. 40000 players makes it the most popular sport by many miles. NRL is irrelevant...

Re: former president of WADA slams AFL an unclean sport

Re: Battle Of Brisbane 2024

I think two things have stood out this year - Brisbane and Gold Coadt on main channel on 7 and a magazine afl footy show on main channel on 7 at a regular viewing time - not 1 in the morning. Think it rates okay too for that slot. ch 7 are forced to put local afl teams on their main channel in NSW ...

Re: Darwin , RL heatland

NRL in Darwin is only for novelty value . As a sport it's irrelevant. The circus is in town so out of curiosity many will go along for a laugh. The argument for RL being the more popular sport is a joke, for some strange reason the debate is brought up each year and as always you lose. RL is seventh...
