Once the Storm decided to move to Albury, and the Warriors to Tamworth, all he needed was the QLD gov and he was gold.

Mclachlan had to move 2 teams from SA, 2 teams from WA, get the same exemptions from Queensland, and get the Victorian Government to agree
This is quiet funny - hilarious really wookie. If the NRL can hardly tie its shoe laces together then what's that say about the AFL and other Australian sports that attracts less viewers and generates less revenue each year?

What ever he needed to do he did. Though I can remember a lot of doubting thomase's and nay sayers a couple of months back.

:thumbleft: leading the way

In both codes would of been massive..

Be interesting what figures were in some countries

SKY SPORTS IN UK
FOX 1 IN USA 90million subscribers

Not expecting big numbers but interesting to see what numbers for games Played in early hours

NRL was trending number 4 in UK
I'd say the UK could get good numbers. From memory it would be broadcast around midday there so perfect during lockdown. It's not time friendly in the US though. When was the NRL trending No 4 in the UK Leeroy?? That's very interesting.

A Mexican standoff is a confrontation in which no strategy exists that allows any party to achieve victory. Any party initiating aggression might trigger their own demise. At the same time, the parties are unable to extricate themselves from the situation without suffering a loss. As a result, all participants need to maintain the strategic tension, which remains unresolved until some outside event makes it possible to resolve it. There is no definitive requirement that the confrontation involve at least three parties although similar situations involving two parties are normally referred to as a stalemate . The expression came into use during the last decade of the 19th century; the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary makes an unattributed claim that the term is of Australian origin.


There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

The_Wookie wrote: Fri May 29, 2020 12:13 pm yes i discount it. The decision to move the Warriors was fairly straight forward, and the Storm moved to Albury with litle fuss. Queensland was the only issue and they got an exemption. WA and SA havent granted them, the Vic Governments restrictions are fucking tight as hell, and they still needed to get the same QLD exemptions applied, along with a far more militant players association. Yes i fucking discount it,

Not as much fun as it is reading people tell us how jealous we supposedly are when your fucking league starts before ours every year. lol.

Who woulda known..............everything fumblehouse does is like parting the Red Sea. Everything the NRL does is like taking candy from a Freddy lololololololol!!!!!!!!!

What a strange, strange world we live in lolololol!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways..................gotta go.............two nrl games to watch tonight!!!!!!

no one ever implied it was easy. But moving two teams who made a fairly easy decision to relocate against half the fucking AFL is somewhat different.

the AFL generates less revenue every year? are you fucking high? Not only does the AFL generate more money from media revenue, it also generates more revenue overall. By fucking miles.

No, but they do generate less of a revenue increase each year, and have done most years since 2012.

Have you come across any numbers as yet Leeroy?

It's fanciful to think everybody on Earth is watching the NRL

300 MILLION'S A CROWD

Still, as to the blaring headline bouncing about on social media on Thursday evening about the NRL being broadcast to "300 million people" around the globe, it was nothing if not amusing. Visions came of people in Siberia huddled around the TV before exploding in cheers as Michael Jennings slammed the ball down by the posts; even as they danced an Irish jig in Dublin, and briefly stopped rioting in America as Parramatta lined up for the shot at goal.

And, of course, all of that must have paled into insignificance compared to the cheering at NRL headquarters, what with a global audience 100 times bigger than the domestic audience for an NRL grand final. So why wouldn’t you? But look, actually, no.

There was no doubt a bump of interest globally in NRL given how sports-starved the masses have been. But an increase by 100 times? I thought that seemed a tad unlikely, so actually read beyond the headlines. The source was an unnamed person from TV, who said: "Around 80m to 90m people would have access to the games in America and Europe, maybe more. From that you have to ask yourself how many would watch it ... I would imagine around 30m to 40m people would watch each game for longer than 15 minutes."

So, according to this unnamed source, a third to a half of those with access actually watched it, even though it was the middle of the night in America, and morning in Europe. I call – what’s that word again? – bullshit.
