And , yes that one NSW game far exceeded the Swans attendance.
And the Swans attendance exceeds your main competitions teams.
So for that one game Rugby League is more popular than the Swans, for the rest of the year the other
120 Games at the elite level are not.
Yes there is something to shout about, but it is a very short shout.
Pal, I think you'll find that TV ratings in Sydney place the Swans behind every NRL team. And by some margin. They win crowds in single comparisons but get thrashed every week by every NRL team in TV ratings.

Apart from one game, AFL is more important/popular to attend than RL in Sydney for the balance of the 120 elite level games?
Am i reading you right?
Average home Attendances 2018

Swans————-33959
Canterbury—-11862
Cronulla———-14182
Manly—————11232
Parramatta——11175
Penrith————-14264
Souths—————18531
Roosters———-13274
Wests—————17291

Yep, that’s what I’m says and the figures say so too.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

Most popular club for game attendance. For overall eyes on the game i.e. attendance + tv they would be 10th at best.

And that is where the code comes in. As I have repeatly said club not code.
If some proportional maths were done on the ratings, the swans would be much higher, but I am not convinced of the validity of that method.

The SOO games go someway to disproving a theory that Sydney fans don’t go to games for a variety of reasons such as transport difficulty, The Swans have been disproving that for years even when playing on the same day, same time against NRL games at Moore Park.
Butt, butt, bummer.

Pal, my attendance + tv ratings analysis has nothing to do with code v code. What it means is many many more people in Sydney watch each of the 9 RL clubs either live or TV than watch the Swans.

And as Wookie stated in his beautifully written article on The Roar "Why are we so worried about attendances?" The AFL is the outlier in world sport. Per head of population no one comes near them in live attendances. Well done!!

By world comparisons RL does very well in the markets they are in.

Well Terry, Going by those averages, it's safe to assume that Sydney siders find the AFL far more (almost double )important to attend, week after week after week after week in the H&A.

Yes pal, we know the Swans get good crowds. But it's also safe to assume each NRL club in Sydney find their club far more (far more than double) important to watch week after week after week in H&A.

In 2017 we were lucky for about half the season or so to get metro splits for Fox ratings, so ive compared thecombined average crwd/ave fta/ave fox ratings for all sydney nrl and afl teams over that period where all figures are available, so we can put paid to this - this is home and away figures for all fta/fox in sydney only - i need to adjust the average crowd figures included somewhat, but the overall impact should be roughly the same.

Code Team Total

NRL Parramatta 336,563
NRL St George Illawarra 330,585
NRL South Sydney 327,324
NRL Sydney 316,172
NRL Canterbury-Bankstown 314,516
NRL Wests Tigers 303,613
NRL Penrith 295,678
NRL Manly-Warringah 294,613
NRL Cronulla-Sutherland 292,881
AFL Sydney 129,928
AFL G.Western Sydney 81,188

theres enough to justify having a team, and the national tv audience makes up for it.

OZtam - there are very strict rules around what and how you can publish data. And probably me - and the old nrlratings account that someone else ran that year that stopped running after a while - i assume because like me, got hit with Oztam demands.
