the AFL would also have strong digital media growth so the fact our ratings are also up is pretty impressive. Plus crowds and memberships are up

Firstly if league is more popular on TV then it stands to reason they would more popular on digital media. And secondly how many Victorians could operate digital devices.

Fumble balls rating maybe down less at the moment but they gone off to early. It will be interesting to see just how far the've fallen by season end. League on the other hand :thumbleft: :rock: :rock: :rock:

Not borne out by any released data to date. Assumption false to date.

AFL ratings are up across all segments at the moment. League on the other hand, is down on all segments.

Except this literally hasnt happened.
What hasn't happened? It's your figures pal. FB is down -13% on FTA in Sydney you said. Backtracking again????

You really must read posts more carefully Wookie. This is what I said:

"It seems to have been ignored that FB is -13% on FTA in Sydney this year. So from a very low base they've gone even lower."

Myself and your fellow FB propagandist then discussed this issue until I demolished him and he went back into the jungle about last years ratings.

So what do you think about this fact? You jump all over any perceived or actual negative in RL or any other game but when it comes to fumbling there is just silence.

Just because you haven't got figures to refute this doesn't make it false.

League ratings may be down buy they aren't the ones considering introducing a wild card. And of the reasons that Carline Wilson quoted was to retain interest into the backend of your competition.

And youve got zero figures, it doesnt make it true. On actrual released data, what you said doesnt bear up

man you really are hung up on the wild card thing - its not the first time its been floated, wont be the last. And why would league need it anyway, season is compromised to fuck by origin.

I may not have the figures. But the figures you posted showed that the NRL had the most viewed match (im assuming the figures for rep football wern't included). and the fact that there has been strong growth in the digital area this year would indicate that.

Our season isn't compromised by Origin , Its an enhanced by origin.

In fairness Terry you can't claim rl ratings down due to top teams not doing well and then not allow this same excuse for the swans. Swans improving so will be interesting.

Doesnt actually say whether rep football was covered. The article was thin on a lot of details, but on face value yes the NRL had the most viewed match. Granted.

Ill also point out the NRL annual report indicated 100 million minutes of live video through its app. The AFL indicated 185 million minutes just in live matches.

No its not. Crowds and ratings massively disagree with that assertion during the origin period.

In fairness Fred can you show me where I said the -13% wasn't related to the Swans poor form. Tip - you won't because I never said it. You must read posts more carefully pal.

Fair point. Either way... whilst some drop off is expected for the swans 13 percent is not good.

I still think the drop off in nrl though is concerning but yes, with top teams down you would expect some drop off. But wouldn't those teams doing well pick up ?

There's a saying in afl , or used to be, that Collingwood doing well is good for afl... crowds, ratings etc. not sure that holds as true nowadays .

Yeah, minutes . Doesn't mean a lot when the game is nearly twice as long., The article was talking club level, hence the nrl club game mentioned being the most viewed. And article this year talked about massive growth in the 1 st two rounds, more in fact then the previous Season .


Better than average crowds this round certainly doesn't suggest Origin is having a negative effect on crowds. and with just two FTA matches and five PTV this round 26-28k in not a bad result for TV.
