From my experience there is more to what is paid than just pure ratings. I would imagine that given there is a big uptake of fox in nsw and qld likely of nrl viewers that possibly the lure of obtaining more subscribers in non nrl states may make afl more valuable. That is... “extra” subscribers. Also, given the reasonable support for afl in qld and nsw there may be a niche market to Tap into in nsw and qld? Where’s sane wouldn’t apply in reverse.

For whatever reason ... fox seem to value afl more .

It was why NRL have teamed up with Touch and Tag, so they are engaged in Rugby League.
as not all sports people can play Rugby League
they perfer touch and tag as it is not so Brutal on the body.
do they engage with the sport tho ?
other then playing it because their mummys don't want them playing the sport they truly want to play , the sport their heros play
Rugby League

so thats the sport they attend to an extent & certainly sit down on the couch with their hot milo to watch with their families

not the bumbling mess they played earlier in the day
Dave is the king of absurd excuses.

Exhibit A: all AFL ratings in NSW and QLD are expats, even though there are many many expats in WA from eastern state and NRL ratings are horrendous.

Ehxibit B: all AFL participants only do so because their mummies dont want them playing league. Well to a degree I think you may have a point on this one. My wife's relatives in QLD moved their kids from RL to AFL, not because of the dangers of the game, but the toothless, bogan attitudes and culture of the parents.
Its a fact
I know fathers of boys here in our area who play sooker or derpball , only because the mothers won't have their skinny little white sons play RL mainly. Its too rough for them
Thats the sport they want to play tho , thats the sport they watch with their fathers .. all raiders fans.

Skinny white boy scared of polynesians is a huge factor in playing numbers for sooker & bumbleball north of the murray. They're both easy soft sports to play
Unlike league which isn't.
but , thats where the engagement with those sports end

so

That must scare the hell out of poor Dave. Rusted on RL fans allowing their kids to play AFL instead of RL. AFL wins again.

I can assure you, the opposite isn't happening in Melbourne. The participants in RL are almost unheard of here

BTW

On Thursday 84k watched the AFL and 101k watched the NRL in Brisbane.

Only 20k watched the storm in Melbourne last night.

Seems like the AFL is Far Far more national than the NRL

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :rofl: :rofl: :(/ :(/ :(/ :(/
they don't talk about collinmond , whorethorn or Richingwood in the play grounds of schools north of the murray ... they never have , they never will

even tho some don a singlet & their little sisters shorts on saturdays feeling like utter gooses , most couldn't name one bumbling fumbler from any world famous melbourne suburbs . Nope , they're obsessed with Jack Wighton , CNK & bigggggg Josh Pa pa LIIIIII
anyone hanging their hat on participation numbers for derpball up here & claiming that is a big factor is an ignorant deluded fool... like frud

& of course it isn't happening in mongbourne , or sadelaide or Pert
one thing more scared of polynesians then soft skinny white boys from up here , is pretty much every skirt wearing white boy down there :cool:

that was a snap census of ex pats from the bumbletard states in brisbane on thursday then , the ABS are taking those numbers down as we speak
meanwhile the worst , the.... worst brisbane broncos side in their history attracted 143K on TV last night in brisvegas.
& probably another 100K on streaming

seems like skinnywhiteboyball will never be our national sport

So 143k watched the Broncos last night when no other sport was on, and 84k watched the AFL on Thursday night rather than the NRL.

Please tell me you're not trying to spin this as some positive for a RL heartland city Dave. Those figures must be a massive worry for the NRL because they show significant interest in AFL in Brisbane.

An equivalent result in Melbourne would be the storm rating 200k. Yet last night they rated 20k with no competing AFL

Yikes

I'm sure there were many. The FTA numbers are still alarming though

And your claim not long back, that your Kayo numbers would be better than ours??? Showing two FTA games at the same time barely makes a difference. :blahblah: :blahblah: :blahblah: Wouldn't overlapping matches or showing FTA in different states, cut down on the matches you could watch without Fox? - It's a shit game LOL maybe there just not into it, did you ever think of that. :rock: :rock: Oh youv'e still got it :(/ :(/ :(/
Something is seriously wrong with you.

Yes, concurrent games are still an issue, as they always will be. Last weekend alone proved that. If they are on fox too it makes no difference as you cannot watch, nor be counted, as watching 2 games at once.

Our fox subscriptions are lower than nrl because fans in all states bar VIC can see their club on fta every week. Therefore fox ratings are a poor measure of popularity


and those games, the ones that overlap, are shown on FTA . You the ones the mob that get 2 or 3 times as many ratings. So who benefits?. But as you point out not everybody can watch these games, not unless you have Fox. No doubt you will find some negative to focus on .
