Even if 1000 kids in Canberra play AFL instead of RL, and become invested in the game, that will not be reflected in TV ratings.
Are you saying these 1000 kids woul'dnt be Able to work out how to turn on a TV set?

Even if they did... unless they have a ratings metre box they are not counted in the ratings.

Former Collingwood president Eddie McGuire has laid out a detailed, bold plan to introduce a stand-alone Tasmanian team, plus another club, and make the AFL truly national by 2028.

Oh my god, They've been telling us for years they had a National competition :(/ :(/ :(/

That's incredible!! Fumblehouse is demanding $40M per year "forever" from Govt's. Dead set got the hide of a herd elephants the fumblers.

You don't need to be an intellectual giant to see the Tassy Gov't response: "Really? How much do Gov'ts put into individual teams in NSW per year? What about Qld?? Oh......and WA.............and ummmmm.............oh yeah............... SA...............and what about Victardia?????? Gilty 'ol boy..... jam it up ya a__e pal!!!!!!!!!!!!
