secondly, AFL has the best coverage on FTA than any sport in Australia. (which actually lifts ratings)
thirdly, of course all numbers should be added up as a total. though you can also add
fox and FTA separately, it gives it a good run down..
no one is saying you would watch all 9 games. However, even if you can spare 6 hrs to watch sport on Saturday, that's 2 AFL games and 3 NRL games. Same viewing, 50% more ratings counted
This is just total BS pal. The TV ratings companies put out the numbers. They do not have an Asterix against movies that go for 90 mins as opposed to those that go for 120 mins. Same applies to sport. No one anywhere talks about your BS except a few idiot fumblers here making more excuses.

End of story!!!!!!!!!!!
and one of the Herald Sun sports writers.

The AFL have 27 hrs of sport to telecast every weekend. Rather than start some games before noon or after 9pm they schedule some concurrently, which lowers ratings. That's the unfortunate consequence of having a 2.5hr game with 9 games per round. However, Fox would have known this from before they signed the contract and accounted for that in their deal.

No Problems there. It is what it is.

The only problem is when you 1. compare the average ratings for each game to a sport which shows every game in isolation. 2. add all the ratings up to a total and claim that shows overall popularity. They are vastly different conditions and demonstrate barely more than the scheduling differences

for example.

Suns v Swans is not going to rate that well if shown nationally in it's dedicated timeslot. (by it self)

So they schedule it with another match
Richmond v St Kilda for the Melbourne market > to boost the National total.

there is a reason the AFL do this and they have been doing it for years.
But they will still rate more as an average and a total if they were both played in isolation. This is because neutral viewers will watch many games not involving their side

Only Marginally better not a huge difference.
Especially the day games.

it all goes back to, how many punters will watch all 9 games.

and even when you have the clashing of games, you have the FTA component beamed into home states.

Take out that FTA and your got an excellent point.

it's not about all 9 games. The moment 2 matches are played at the same time both are ratings are compromised. If they could be played one after the other the ratings would be higher. Every Saturday we see this where a game played in isolation gets higher ratings

Beaming the Suns into their home state or even Brisbane - instead of a Collingwood match or another big club would, I think, mean less ratings for that market. Hence my need to get fox.
