I dunno know Freddy, this is why this site is so tiresome. Do we need to get into the goldfish bowl again. This has been explained over and over and over!!!!!!
yes it has. And you lot are no better at understanding it apparently because every fucking season its the same.
RL folk want whats fair and equitable.
No they dont. They want the figures that suit them. And then call it "the most watched sport". Not most watched competition. Not most watched league. Most watched sport.
The way Wookie did it previously was very good with his graphs etc. I believe he is now unable to do those due to legal reasons. Everyone could add in or strike out whatever thay wanted......you know......like you struck out as much RL as you could and folk laughed!!!
There are indeed legal reasons why i cant produce them. I have produced the data in text format periodically, although i try to not include the same data in every blackbox article i submit.
In the past couple of weeks he seems to be grabbing numbers from anywhere......except NZ.
Im getting the data direct from 7, 9 and Oztam as I have all season. My source material has never been this good before. Amazing what actually writing for a media group gets you.
Get this through your thick head. There is NO data - zero, zilch, nada - for New Zealand and hasnt been since 2014. All we are told is vague percentage increases, and if i ever get the time and inclination, Ill go back and see if i can get an estimate even remotely close to being accurate.
As I have repeatedly stated......like over and over and over. The best way is to compare the elite levels of both sports. The levels that generate revenue. That's AFL domestic comp V NRL domestic comp + SOO & limited internationals.
The AFLs media deals includes AFLX, the JLT series and AFLW. Just the same as the NRL deal includes the Allstars, Charity Shield and other preseason fixtures.
Seal the number of games at the number of AFL H&A games as they have more than the NRL comp. That means adding in 3 SOO & I believe about 3/4 internationals. Whatever equals total AFL games.
yeah because thats not just an abitrary number at all.
And voila......we compare the exact number of games at the elite levels of the respective codes.
And we have you cherry picking the AFL data to suit your purposes.
So there ya have it!!!! Hopefully you'll remember this into the future!!
The great terry has spoken. FMD we can all go home now.
