Rugby league has no competition there.
Does this mean Eddie didn't tell a racist joke on radio & afl ppl didn't dismiss it as a minor brain fade?

You must have the amazing ability to see things that are not there.
My post had nothing to do with your reply.
Regarding your Eddie reference, I thought he was treated incredibly leniently at that time.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

“Essendon have a very strong connection to the Tiwi islands with many aboriginal players coming from there. Sheedy went on a personal crusade to develop and recruit in the 80s. As very strong on Aussie rules there. And rather than just have one team that apparently if your aboriginal you support ... the afl teams again reflect the community that supports them and aboriginal people support many teams. Not sure why they should support one?”

Don't forget New Zealand, a country with has 4.8 million people and had the number one RL team in the world.

A country which AFL has no presence and cancelled AFL exhibition matches early due to such low interest.

You guys make me laugh. You know what the population of the Tiwi Islands is?
2579 people live there :lol:

How many leagues can you have with a population like that? :mrgreen:

Where's that Tiwi Islands national AFL team playing Australia? :lol:

This is what you call real Islanders support.
Samoa VS Tonga RL

Something AFL will never have.

You have yo remember the afl is Aussie rules states is supported by a broad cross section of society ... no “class” distinctions that are traditionally associated with rl and ru divide.
A broad cross section of society where nearly all the supporters are white.

Hence the huge problems with racism in AFL.
The NRL would not have even a quarter of the amount of racist incidents as AFL.
An indigenous player has never been regularly racially by vilified in the NRL like Adam Goodes was in the AFL..

Also show me a team in the AFL followed by the Indigenous community like South's are?
None of the AFL teams have that connection with the Aboriginals.

Who do you think those raised in Aussie rules states follow. That is the staple everyone is brought up on. Soccer is present for sure and you have a decent enough following there but most soccer supporters would still follow afl or a team. Rl and ru are virtually none existent and even those would have it as a second team (Storm) in Melbourne. So supporters of afl are the society/community by and large and mirror that. In the 2 rugby states you have traditionally had that code divide that doesn’t exist in afl states. With afl or Aussie rules now adding into this it seems this same thinking is being applied.

Imagine there was only rl in nsw for instance.... that’s it... everyone grows up on the one game. Sure there is soccer as there is now but imagine that is it. Well that’s how it is for afl.

You seem to think because islander people do not follow or play afl in the numbers they do the rugby codes that it is all white.

How many indigenous Africans playing nrl at the moment ?
Fred making assumptions with no idea as usual.. Not everyone who is into Rugby League/Union or Soccer in southern states is going to have an AFL team.
Cricket is Australia's national summer sport. Do you think I care about cricket what so ever? Nope. Never watch it, never care for it.

State of Origin got a bigger crowd in Melbourne than every AFL game ever to be played in NSW & Qld. Not once but TWICE!
Had a record crowd when it was played in Perth too.
So to say there is no interest for RL in Southern States is just another Fred false assumption.

Fred a bit of education for you. Africans are not indigenous in Australia. :lol: =D

Are you getting confused with Aboriginals and Africans? :lol:

I think you missed my point or truely do not know how little rugby league is in the public consciousness in south Australia Western Australia, tassie and Victoria. The storm make some noise and get some coverage and SoO people like to tune into as a marquee event. But ask who they support in vic people may say storm as that’s all there is .... but not really know the game ... in the other states mentioned you’d be pushed. Look at how many clubs play in the one... yes that’s right, league in the state. There is just minimal presence in public - schools, parks etc. but people are bought up on aussie rules. Soccer does have a presence indeed however I would say most would have an afl team and likely been to a game etc. I would be very surprised if there were that many people who follow rl or ru exclusively unless they came to the state at an older age. Even Cameron Smith”s son plays Aussie rules ... cause that’s it really and soccer. If all your mates are playing soccer or Aussie rules with either rugby non existent really ... then you play those sports. Smith said he would have loved his son to play rl but his son didn’t want to. The rl would love to have the presence in all non afl states that Aussie rules has I. Qld and nsw. I really do not think you grasp how small rl is in Victoria and even less on other afl states. It is so small... I think ru is probably bigger. More people are playing baseball and hockey than rl.

Soo is a marquee event and would get a crowd. If the nba or mlb played in Melbourne ... just a standard game let alone say a play off ... it would also sell out. People know of rl of course.... if they had soo week in week out ... crowds obviously would not be the same.

I think the landscape has changed somewhat with players being very vocal.

Fred having another brain fart with baseball. I made a total dickhead out of you with that argument before lol..
Don't you remember? You ran away with your tail between your legs.
Came up with no tv coverage.
No media coverage.
No video coverage.
No evidence.

Fred AFL can't even get shown on the main channels in NSW and Qld. Do you really think it is so popular here when 99% of matches are shown on 7mate?

The top rating radio station that covers news & sport in NSW (2GB) only covers NRL matches.

AFL has pretty much a minimal presence here too. Even the papers. AFL is always at the back of about 15 pages of league & union in the Telegraph.

You can use the marquee event excuse as much as you like.

But the fact Origin got a bigger crowd than every AFL game ever played in NSW or QLD twice really shows there is more interest than you say.

I could post all the media again, the number of leagues, the number of players But what’s the point ... f you didn’t take notice then not sure you would now. Storm get done coverage but as far as the game being played on the community... it’s basically nothing for rl and baseball far outstrips it. And just about any other sport almost. There’s like 13 clubs in the whole state mate. Aussie rules is a giant in comparison in nsw and qld. Do I also need to post the number of leagues in Sydney area alone? Let along the state.

Agree that it’s got a long way to go in qld and when we get it regularly on the main channel ... along with corresponding footy shows... that is when the afl has really embedded ... it’s not there .... yet. But look at precedent it is in both states ...clubs, players it is quite entrenched.... and growing. I live on the Gold Coast and they have ran out of ovals and requesting more be built.

The rl would love rl to be a tenth as orevelamt in Victoria. At least they have storm in Victoria ...this gives storm some coverage in the media ... and lucky they are so successful .... in other afl states they don’t even have that. Google rl in south Australia ...

Freddy 'ol boy...............South Australia is a nothing pal. It's like a pimple on an elephant!!!!! It don't count. It's 99.9% desert. WA ditto. The only states that count in good 'ol OZ are NSW, Qld and the infected state of Vicvirusia!!!!!!
