The ratings for any major game don't show that - actually quite the opposite. :wink:

WTF?

1 NRL GRAND FINAL DAY Nine 2,122,000 895,000 551,000 488,000 88,000 100,000

2 SEVEN’S AFL: GRAND FINAL: WEST COAST V COLLINGWOOD Seven Network 2,601,000 345,000 1,247,000 247,000 290,000 471,000

Melbourne storm were in the GF so obviously Melbourne rated better. Other than that Perth and Adelaide rated only 188k combined for the NRL GF, while Brisbane rated 247k for the AFL on their own. :rock:

are you brain dead? Contrary to your claim the figures for Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide favour the AFL, not the NRL

the NRL has 1 team outside NSW and QLD. No one in their right mind would call that national expansion. Of course that doesn't apply to you

I'm not even saying the AFL is fully national, however it is more national than the NRL.

My point to NRL&NFL is expansion into new markets is extremely difficult, hence the reason RL hasnt expanded across this country despite it's popularity in Australia's biggest city and state. There are far more factors involved than just the quality of the sport
The NRL has 1 team outside of NSW & Qld has it?

Your ignorance has no boundaries lol..
So which state is the New Zealand Warriors in?

Constantly making mistakes at how much more successful Rugby League has been at growing overseas compared to AFL are'nt you. :lol:

I was discussing the NRL's failure to expand across Australia, not NZ :[]

I have no issue saying RL is played in more countries. They have British influence and RU to thank for that

Stags would be a good name even tho they call them a buck, something different, or the otters.

Yeah will be interesting what they come up with. Your right, it would likely be something to do with Canadian wildlife.

I hope they get these teams to play trials against NRL clubs some time.

Still going with these Plebs I see mate.

You must be a glutton for punishment.
come back, it'll be fun
New season hype has me here mate, but I can already see it'll be a mindfuck just trying to hang around for a few rounds.


Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.
