lots of good ideas here & above .... I do think penalties for violent behaviour need to be much, much higher, and maybe either have the points scored in the last 10 mins count double OR make it into two games with win points for each half and then the 2nd half starts as 0-0

Is funny how AFL fans are actually responding to this admitting their sport is a national embarrassment.

I suppose asking for some proof of this is out of the question . Can't have a Rl poster asking a lying fumbler for some proof .
Int that’s your loopy ideas of the swans fans in Sydney and any team that flys over to nsw or Qld to play the local team based there
All expats and the interstates team fans fly as well and watch the team play :)))


Rl in Melbourne, there are next to no rl leagues set up in Vic due to low demand
Fr Minnowbourne Storm or nrlol as a whole has had like one player from the state play in the pas30 odd years!

I will

Rl as a code has very little presence in Melbourne or Victoria. For instance ...1 league for entire state I think and about 13 clubs....


I will say this though. It is growing very slowly and Melbourne Storm have built up a loyal niche market. There is no real fervent “opposition” to rl per se... it’s just another minor sport ... as in there is no fervent opposition to baseball, basketball, hockey, Gaelic football etc. all of which are far bigger.

It's pretty hard to make AFL less embarrassing TBH. I mean you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig!!!!!! The problem is the very basic fabric of the game makes it an ugly grovelling mess. The constant fumbles. The ball rolling around uncontrolled on the ground with 10 match sticks bumbling and stumbling to pick it up. Just low base ugly stuff!!!

The poor 'ol girls game got a memo before the 2018 season begging the coaches to somehow make the game more attractive. It didn't!!!!!!!!!!!!

The men's game was getting so bad fumblehouse made an incredible 9 rule changes before the start of the season. They wanted more open play, less congestion, a more fluid contest. It didn't work. The scoring was lower than ever. The mess continued. The GF being exhibit A. It was the embodiment of embarrassment.

I really don't know what Gilty and the boys can do. It's really hard to make a silk purse out of a pigs ear. I mean its hard to turn something so ugly into something anywhere approaching attractive.

Do our fumbling friends have any ideas????

How about pull down grandstands & replace with catering tents .
The mythical missing 5 k in China seemed to work out very quickly that eating for Afew hrs was preferable to watching the mess .

How’s that the Minnowbourne Storm and league have had like one player play nrlol in 30 odd years. A dozen or so local clubs!

Then you try and tell us league is making ground and afl isn’t in Qld and nsw :mrgreen:

A minor sport that got 91,000 at the mcg for State of Origin hey Fred. A far bigger crowd than AFL has ever gotten in NSW or Qld :wink:

Gaelic Football, Baseball and Hockey are far bigger than Rugby League in Melbourne you claim? Where are the televised commercial coverages for these local sports in Melbourne?

Any players getting paid 800k a year to play for a Gaelic Football club or Baseball Club in Melbourne Fred? Like the Melbourne Storm has payed players?

Sounds like Fred needs to do a little fact checking :lol:

91,000 at the MCG for State of Origin looks pretty good to me. More than any AFL game ever played in NSW or Qld.

And how many people turned up for the Giants pre grand final fan day in Western Sydney?
About a thousand for a team that is said to have a presence in two major cities. Sydney and Canberra.

The lipstick on a pig analogy rings very true.
They did try to play on a Rugby League field with AFL X. So they have been trying :lol:
