Anglofl is a pure marketing machine. Only one's buying the hype are in Melbourne tho.

You got one thing right... the AFL are indeed a marketing machine...like any good business they market themselves very well, protect the brand and look to grow the brand. The NRL could have done with the AFL admin to get done professionalism into the running of its game many years back.

Not sure why you think AFL is only popular in Melbourne though? Me thinks you’re forgetting a few AFL states and the popularity of Australian Rules in seq ... and the growing popularity on Sydney.

Flavio Varnier and Celia Caroll, from the Penrith region, were the ones with the giant orange finger.
They love their club so much they have 13 memberships between them. Why? To help out.

I think we all agree they have some way to go re: winning hearts and minds in Western Sydney. It took the swans a long long time to get where they are. But we have a beginning. A seedling if you like where once there was baron ground. And that was the whole point of placing the Giants in Western Sydney.

You know who they have won the hearts of though? Everyone who doesn't support Richmond.
Up the Giants.
As mentioned, the planted seed is all that was needed in GWS and it's also all that was needed to trigger the League fans too.
Crows won in their 7th year, West Coast 6th, Port 8th, Brisbane 5th (post-merger). Giants in their 8th season are due I'd say, then a nice big bandwagon to fill.


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

What are you referring to ? A couple of members buying extra memberships. Maybe they decided to do the three game multi instead of a season membership ? But I’m sure that doesn’t account for the 30000 members. Man, why are you so desperate for the Giants to fail ..... ignore it if you don’t care or jump on board. I know we all need a hobby but gee whiz. ... the giants winning and succeeding doesn’t mean you are losing .

Where are the swans? 38 years & can't draw a TV audience. Never produce more than player every draft. What you are saying giants can be niche.

Nope, I just don't care. The AFL talking shit and big-noting themselves in Sydney doesn't surprise or bother me. It'd be strange if they didn't. Nobody I know buys that gws are popular, nor does it feel like thats whats being sold. It really only seems to bother you lot and make you dig for dirt.

Swans are going great guns. Crowds .. tick ... sponsorship ... tick ... media coverage .... tick ..... growth in Australian Rules participation, clubs, leagues ... tick . Could rating be better ... sure but when you combine fta and fox they are okay.

Little media coverage in Sydney. Auskick numbers don't count. Very few Sydney players coming through to main league. Aging, white fan base...
