300 MILLION'S A CROWD

Still, as to the blaring headline bouncing about on social media on Thursday evening about the NRL being broadcast to "300 million people" around the globe, it was nothing if not amusing. Visions came of people in Siberia huddled around the TV before exploding in cheers as Michael Jennings slammed the ball down by the posts; even as they danced an Irish jig in Dublin, and briefly stopped rioting in America as Parramatta lined up for the shot at goal.

And, of course, all of that must have paled into insignificance compared to the cheering at NRL headquarters, what with a global audience 100 times bigger than the domestic audience for an NRL grand final. So why wouldn’t you? But look, actually, no.

There was no doubt a bump of interest globally in NRL given how sports-starved the masses have been. But an increase by 100 times? I thought that seemed a tad unlikely, so actually read beyond the headlines. The source was an unnamed person from TV, who said: "Around 80m to 90m people would have access to the games in America and Europe, maybe more. From that you have to ask yourself how many would watch it ... I would imagine around 30m to 40m people would watch each game for longer than 15 minutes."

So, according to this unnamed source, a third to a half of those with access actually watched it, even though it was the middle of the night in America, and morning in Europe. I call – what’s that word again? – bullshit.

Unlike AFL house were not quiet stupid enough to make predictions like that. The media made those comments. And I think It was always meant to be a potential or possible cum audience. Not average . Though Australians will have averaged near 5m viewers by tomorrow, there would have to be 30m or so who have viewed some piece of the game in Australia alone for some period or another. So when you take into account the UK, US, Africa, Canada, NZ , Pacific etc. They wouldn't be that far out.


Rugby League, the dominant force in Australian sport! :cheers:

Thanks for your oh so objective opinions beatup. They are tiringly predictable.

Now back in the world of reality: as pointed out no one from the NRL made any comment or prediction about O.S. tv ratings. Unlike fumble administrators who gave un-sourced, un-proven numbers from China. The difference being fumble fans pat each other on the back and nod in unison whilst RL fans are intelligent enough to know it is simply predictions, possible reach & most importantly a beatup. Something you should know all about pal!!

As an aside I do note that the NRL and the pommy players in particular were rating top 5 twitter mentions in the UK over the week-end. That's what ya call a fact beatup. You might want to look up that word up in the dictionary and add it to your very narrow repertoire of posting pal!!

32k viewers, nothing impressing about that out of 60Mill + subscribers.
But it is something especially for those early hours of the morning..
