Sydney set to take centre stage in stadium wars

Sydney is set to become the nation’s home of live entertainment and big-time sport, overthrowing Melbourne for boasting rights with major events every single month.

Pity the NRL can’t do that with their grand final....which is what the super bowl is to the NFL.
State of Origin is closer to the NFL pro bowl which is not as popular as super bowl.
SOO always surprises me in that:
1. It’s more popular than the regular season finale.
2. A lot of NRL fans seem to think this (SOO) proves how great the NRL is.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

Yes Ch9 and the NRL should do that with the NRL GF>

SOO it not only outrates the NRL Grand Final it outrates the AFL Grand Final too... on most occasions

SOO is a very unique concept that has went on to work, and it is nothing like the PRO BOWL>

at this point in time
NSW will allow the Grand final to be capped at 40k in 84k stadium.

QLD is allowing 30k for Grand Final in a 43k Stadium.

With Social distancing remaining the same in both states and rules.

This does not make sense at all.

I'm surprised they didn't go for a best of three for the AFL grand final this year given the compromised season and given they were wanting to try new things. I think the best of three concept works best when each side plays each other once.

If it’s not broken, don’t try to fix it.
