I've noticed that the AFL over the past couple of years have started choosing there TV matches as the season rolls along. You cant blame them I suppose, they need every advantage they can get. I suppose you would get sick of being embarrassed in the TV/popularity stakes each year. :wink:
No they dont. TV matches are picked when the season is fixtured. The only exception is the final round which isnt done for TV reasons, its done to maximise the rest period allowable for teams playing the following week in the finals.

Then why does the AFL Broadcast schedule show just the first 12 rounds and the year before that the first 8 than 12,16 , 23. But in previous years they showed the first 22 rounds, Just leaving Rd 23 blank.?

Roar


By John Hollins, 8 Dec 2017


The TV ratings for 2017 have just been released again and once again, rugby league has emerged as a winner.

The top-rating TV shows in 2017 were dominated by sporting events, with State of Origin 3 coming out on top:

1. State of Origin Rugby League game 3 Queensland vs NSW (Nine) 2.521 million metropolitan only (3.705 million combined metro and regional, #1 overall)
2. Australian Open Tennis men’s final (Seven) 2.686 million (3.636 million, #2)
3. AFL Grand Final Adelaide vs Richmond (Seven) 2.715 million (3.562 million, #3)
4. State of Origin Rugby League Game 1 Queensland vs NSW (Nine) 2.371 million (3.562 million, #4)
5. AFL Grand Final presentations (Seven) 2.713 million (3.558 million, #5)
6. The Block winner announced (Nine) 2.523 million (3.553 million, #6)
7. State of Origin Rugby League Game 2 Queensland vs NSW (Nine) 2.402 million (3.513 million, #7)
8. NRL Grand Final Melbourne Storm vs North Queensland Cowboys (Nine) 2.308 million (3.378 million, #8)
9. Australian Ninja Warrior final stage (Nine) 2.227 million (3.199 million, #9)
10. Australian Ninja Warrior grand final (Nine) 2.158 million (3.076 million, #10)

I realise the Age in Melbourne re-ordered these stats to just show metro ratings, therefore giving the AFL the edge over rugby league, but surely the total ratings should matter a great deal more than the metro-only figures.

Regardless, the point of me writing this is there is still much life in rugby league – and plenty of scope for expansion. Half of Australians still prefer it over other sports on offer like AFL, rugby, and soccer.

So an easy victory for the first comparison game so the AFL is 1-0 up.

No doubt all the excuses will now come pouring out of the tosser fans:

"but but It was your opening game".....well it beat the NRL's opening game as well, despite the NRL having no AFL opposition in the first 3 rounds :mrgreen:

"but but you only play your best teams on Friday".......except the NRL's game was the GF replay, so last year's 1st v 2nd. While the AFL's game was last year's 1st v 16th, an expected blowout :mrgreen:

In fact to dispel this lame excuse I'm going to produce a 'ladder factor' for each game which averages the ladder positions of each game's participants. Last night the NRL's ladder factor was 1.5 ((1+2)/2)because the game was between last year's 1st v 2nd. While the AFL's ladder factor was 8.5 ((1+16)/2). I'll average this over the year so we can see which comp, on average, had games with the better teams. For the first 11 rounds it will be for last year's ladder since this year is only starting, and for the remaining rounds it will be for this year's ladder

We will leave the excuses to you. That seams to be your area of expertise . We'll just enjoy the gold medal at the end of the season just like every other year. Hope you enjoy your silver :cheers:

There's still a couple of gold fish bowl dwellers left on this site I see. For the sensible posters here is the objective analysis: the AFL rated just over 1.1M, the NRL rated just under 1.1M. The numbers were close. I actually expected the fumbling 'blockbuster' to rate more.

RL is once again rating very well and will win the ratings battle for the year.

Now cue the fumbling revisionists diving straight into the bowl for a few more laps lolololololololol.

He's falling back on the same old argument
One narrow comparison because that's all his sport has ( lol AFLW is irelevent when it comes to ratings)

We are multi layered
We aren't a one trick pony.
& because that's all Aflol is ..then that's all he looks at .

"The total number of AFL club members equates to one in every 28 Australians"

Raiderdave says "the AFL only attracts 3.5 Million more spectators to games then the NRL and has only 400K more members"

Very poor Sydney numbers last night. Failed to make 200k and that was a hum-dinger of a game. Its not as though there now following AFL because they didn't get much more than 20k.

Strong regionals though , more than 75% of our Metro figure.

Agreed. If we can get those Sydney numbers up we'll be absolutely flying. Having said that we are still tracking slightly ahead of last year which is what we want.

Another easy victory to the AFL making it 2-0 after 2 games.

Ladder factor for the afl was 4 ((1+7)/2), and their ongoing factor is 6.25 ((8.5+4)/2)
Ladder factor for the NRL was 8.5 ((3+14)/2), and their ongoing factor is 5 ((8.5+1.5)/2)
