More so lack of interest in the non traditional states I would think. Doubt very much there would be many NRL subscribers in those markets. General participation numbers in those markets tell you as much.

Cheers. I like to see how the non traditional states go for each code. I think that is where the focus should be to know how the game is going. I mean, of course each code is going to rate well in its own traditional market. In this area the AFL seem to do much better than the NRL … I particuarly like to see how games not involving Swans do in Sydney, Storm do in Melbourne and Lions in Brisbane as an indicator as well. Obviously Fox only show national figures and wonder if people who follow a code may watch on fox in those states due to poorer coverage and less shows on FTA. NRL is particuarly poor outside traditional states— often 3000 people in some which is like one person watching with a metre box.
Yep like you, it’s why I post the FTA figures for each round on a Monday, including as much info on the non traditional markets as I can find. Like you say, the AFL seems to do a lot better in the non traditional markets if you follow the FTA ratings.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Alot of general rugby league fans in Melbourne would have FOX>
likewise the AFL fans in Sydney.

though it helps with all Sydney Games on FTA for AFL

AFL does alot better in non traditional markets, due to the fact NRL has no teams in SA and WA
NRL's fault of course.
