PVL stated last night that if the NRL can play all its remaining games including SOO

they will come out on top financially over every sporting code in Australia.

the question is: by opinion which code AFL or NRL will come out of this financially better
and by how much... obviously we want know the real facts until next year..

AFL has been receiving huge cash over the past 10 years with also spending huge outlays
could this be its downfall.

NRL's clubs asset train the leagues clubs have been shut down for long periods and limited the cash flows.

interesting times.

Yes the real facts and the false facts...sounds like a trump speech on the ratings.

I think the AFL knocking back $800,000 (I know they don’t get it all) indicates that they are not overly worried about money...or a least losing it.

We can say what about their reduction in staff, but they have indicted For some time that they thought there was a lot of “fat” at the clubs and in admin.

May just have taken the opportunity.

Although they copped a bit at the start of COVID, I believe they have managed Better than the other codes. Being nearly national and not being international has helped....and may help in the future too.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

Season 2021 NRL look to almost lock in 10% cut to CAP and will remain at 30 Player squads.

AFL unknown..

2020 season NRL took 20% cut to players

The AFL needs to do something about low scoring.
Has been going down for a few years now and even taking consideration the shorter quarters this year, scoring is more than proportionately lower, considerably.
FTA returns depend on ads played during game play and that depends on goals being scored, less goals, less ads, less attractive to advertisers, less money available from the FTA broadcaster.
A reduction of players on the field will open up game play, and perhaps increase scoring.
Reduce the lists required.
Reduce the salary cap.
And give potential for an increase in TV income.
Of course the broadcasters that do not rely on ad revenue may have ideas of their own.
CBS that own 10, have neglected the ptv arm, recently announced they are redoing the whole thing, CBS Rejuvenated themselves by investing heavily in sport.
Disney: well they own a lot of sport.
Amazon want more subscribers in oz, and that’s an opportunity, out of the PTV that I subscribe to, too many, I find them the cheapest and the best, adding $2 a month, or even a week....well.

A significsnt revenue loss indeed. I wonder whether costs are up or down ? Lots of cuts to the soft cap which had seen many staff let go at clubs but add in all the costs with playing in qld etc.

100% it will effect there bottom line for broadcasters if this keeps happening.

Its the huge advantage in Australian sport an advert every goal for FTA TV

Watching a bit this weekend and there is a lot more flooding. Not exactly packs but a lot more players surrounding the ball players resulting in a lot more tackles, handballs and small kicks.
Quite often there is no player in half the ground, something you didn’t see a lot of previously until the last quarter when teams were defending a narrow lead.
I’m sure some coach will come up with a work around advantage, they always do, but they should hurry.

I think reducing player numbers would be beneficial on several levels.

Although the longer breaks after goals (when they occur) and between quarters does allow for more adds.

I've been following and going to the footy for a while now and players being in a quarter of the ground has been a long time issues for many a year. Hence they brought in the 6 rule at start and restart of play after a goal and they played around in practice matches at doing such at each restart. Been happening for years and for a while game - not just last quarter.

Totally agree to going to 16 a side like the old VFA - take the wings out.

I’d go a bit further and reduce to 14. No flanks.
At every centre bounce only two players from each side in square, ruckman and rover.
On the corners outside the square one of each team, with the players lining up on the edge furthest from their goal. They cannot enter the square until a player touches the bounced or balled up ball.
4 players from each team in the 50 metre arcs not allowed out of the arc until the bounced ball is touched.
Would solve a few other problems as well.
