probably has more to do with the AFL trying to squeeze a season's games into fewer months. That's why they decrease game time, in an effort to reduce player fatigue due to a tighter playing schedule
Yes that too, but they had a Grand Final date in mind, and they reduced the length of the game to factor in this,

I still think tv viewing figures are up for 2 main reasons.

Game has been reduced (which is making the AVG look better) you will see the change next season
and Melbourne has been pretty much in Lock down with impressive viewing figures
So what you're also saying is the NRL have a big advantage in average ratings over the AFL because their game is shorter. Another reason why cumulative ratings over a season are meaningless
i would not say Big Advantage>> when looking at Numbers Slightly yes, but from a Broadcasting advertising point of view no

All games over the next 5 weeks are in Isolation.

there is only a total of 3 games played before 6pm..

Even it's only a minor to moderate advantage to have a shorter telecast, say 5%, that would make a massive difference when adding ratings for over 200 games. Over 100mil ratings thats 5mil

well you need to argue that with Leeroy. He agrees a shorter telecast helps the averages

Let's not jump to conclusions there NlolRL.
We need to drill down on these inflated AFL figures.

Leeroy, exactly how have the AFL average viewership figures inflated by us shortening the game by 17% to 100 minutes?

Would you say they've inflate by a similar amount?

I await you reply....
by the game decreasing its game time overall, this creates less blowouts and more tighter games.
and yes 16mins less game time which is around 25mins overall in AFL Standards time on time off.
Figures from year 2020 and 2019 would you think would be higher >>> which you are seeing year on year.
increase by some margin.

add this and Melbourne in lockdown and you get a nice lift.
Leeroy, you said...
"Game has been reduced (which is making the AVG look better) you will see the change next season".

What "will" change? The average viewership?

Yes Average will change next year, when AFL reverts back to Normal length Game and Australia (hopefully turns semi Normal)

There is no fluke to why viewing figures are up.

i think a slight increase on Isolation games, we are seeing more Prime time games this year and will continue to do so.

it is Smart by the AFL though, and the right move... if you cannot get much crowds> lets go full TV MODE>

Just a feeling or is that based on a calculation of the average I'm not aware of...?

Hey Wookie,
I'm trying to drill down on Leeroys statement the the AFL viewership numbers are inflated due in part to the shorter games.

Do you have insight to the calculation used to do the ratings? Is time a factor?
