Wolfpack one step closer to Superleague with only one game to go.
Crowd reported as a record, but the week before seemed more.
This week the crowd seemed sparse both ends.
But I did only watch 10 minutes after the break.

New conditions are appearing re the criteria for entry including that they will not get a share of the central distribution fund (ie: they won’t get a share of the profits).
It appears they may have to continue to pay all expenses for visiting teams and will still play early “home” games in England.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

I wouldn't be taking much notice of what those insular pommy fans are saying, they're all green with envy and have as much knowledge of what will happen as anyone here, all bs actually. I listed to a wolfpack interview on a Canadian radio station the other day and no one mentioned anything about them not going up if they won.

Yeah it looked like a quality game.
I think league has a good chance in gaining a decent following in North America.

Another team will only add more interest.

I don't need to. The fact is AFL is not getting any crowds watching their sport in Canada. :cool:

The VFL hasn’t played there since the 80’s, even then they got bigger crowds than the professional “Canadian” RL team does now and the 3 current Canadian RL comps that have average attendances of well below 2,000.

The VFL played several exhibition games in Canada in the late 80’s

12/10/1989 Toronto, Geelong v Melbourne Attendance 24,639

16/10/1988 Toronto, Collingwood v Hawthorn, Attendance 18,000

18/10/1987 Vancouver, Melbourne v North Melbourne, Attendance 7,980

19/10/1987 Vancouver, Melbourne v Sydney, Attendance 32,789”

Currently the AFL get the same attendances as the NRL in Canada which is zero, because neither league plays there.
