especially with expansion.

2 FTA Games each per week, FOX with 5 Exclusive Games.
The NRL says the same thing every time yet still sticks with Channel 9 and Foxtel.

Channel 9 and Stan seem to be really promoting Rugby this year though. Seeing tv advertising and billboards daily for Rugby on Stan in Sydney at least. NSW Waratahs form to date is not helping thus far though it seems.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

I would have thought that you people would be used to coming 2nd.

"Sical media was never where the AFL derived a "tribal" reputation from in the first place. That was always based on people going to matches and taking up memberships and showing actual support, not clicking likes on facebook or instagram."

Sour Grapes?

"The Broncos alone have amassed more followers than the AFL's Brisbane Lions, St Kilda FC and North Melbourne Kangaroos combined," :(/ :(/ :(/ :rock:

"The most alarming fall however is the AFL's supposed powerhouse team; the Collingwood Magpies, who back in 2013 had more social media followers than any other club. Eight years on, and their online ranking has dropped to fifth with 250,000 less followers than the Brisbane Broncos. " a quarter of a million less followers :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Top 5 clubs by followers:

1. Brisbane Broncos: 1,062,252

2. Melbourne Storm: 894,326

3. Warriors: 799,744

4. South Sydney Rabbitohs: 781,187

5. Collingwood Football Club: 756,220

What a lovely story :thumbleft:

Its called the fucking truth. The AFLs tribal reputation stems from long before social media was a thing,

Its Samy Haidar trying to commercially justify something that has no tangible affect on the club beyond being liked by people. He did it last year on twitter before he got a job at nine.

Amazing numbers for The Greatest Game of All!!!!! It'll certainly ruffle a few feathers from our southern friends who have never conceded year on year TV rating wins by RL. And who will no doubt squeal like stuck pigs about this one lolololoolool!!!!!!

What it does show is that NSW (particularly Sydney) & Qld people simply do not attend sport, all sport, in the numbers they do in the AFL states. That is not a tribal thing, it is a cultural thing. This study shows however that RL folk are just as invested in their teams, infact more so, than AFL folk.

The challenge is for RL to somehow capitalise on this support & monetise it through game attendance and memberships. I suspect it will never happen at the level of the southern states because..............well............I mean..............what else is there to do in the developing states lololololol!!!!!!!!!!

Yep. Whatever way our fumbling friends want to play this one down it is a fantastic result for RL. These platforms are the fastest growing media in the world. They attract primarily young folk who are the future for all sports codes. To dominate the biggest local rival in such a way is incredible. Tremendous result!!!!!!!

Sure which is why your clubs and league commercial revenues - you know from shit like tv rights and sponsorship - is behind the AFL. Club sponsorship WELL behind in general. Because social media means fuck all in terms of actual engagement.

Like how we caught Kony.

If BHP started up a soccer club in the A league it wouldn't make the club instantly the most financial club in the country. It depends on how much revenue they provide the club.

This revenue allows the club to spend on their facilities, coaching, players etc. Some of these NRL clubs may have big leagues club backing but as far as money they can spend on their sporting club, they are minnows

Sure pal. Except that BHP have never owned any sporting franchise. And will never do so. It's idiocy to suggest they would.

In RL licenced clubs have a charter to promote, promulgate and finance RL. It was the reason they were built. It is there raison d'etre!!! And the finances of leagues clubs and football clubs are reported independently unlike the AFL.

If leagues clubs revenues and profits were reported together with their associated football club they would dwarf AFL revenue. Hence the Redcliffe Dolphins are the favourites to be Brisbane's 2nd team. They have a leagues club. A state of the art stadium. And $100M in assets.

That's how it works pal!!!!

league clubs arent pulling in the sponsorship, its the football clubs that are. And its fucking easy to compare the sponsorship revenue from the annual reports for the clubs like Penrith Parramatta, Easts, North Queensland, Cronulla and Brisbane that are all inclusive from leagues club to NRL club.

Whats to fucking stop them? If News corporation can own a sports club - or league for that matter - why cant any other corporation? Its idiocy to suggest they wouldnt.
In RL licenced clubs have a charter to promote, promulgate and finance RL. It was the reason they were built. It is there raison d'etre!!! And the finances of leagues clubs and football clubs are reported independently unlike the AFL.
Except for nearly half the fucking clubs in the league who DO produce combined reports. ffs you cannot be this stupid.
- Canberra
- Canterbury-Bankstown
- Cronulla-Sutherland
- Newcastle (Wests Grp)
- North Queensland
- Parramatta
- Penrith
- Sydney (Easts)

Half the clubs in the AFL dont even have pokies.
- West Coast
- Fremantle
- Adelaide
- GWS
- Gold Coast
- North Melbourne
- Sydney
- Collingwood (sold last year)
- Melbourne (sold last year)
If leagues clubs revenues and profits were reported together with their associated football club they would dwarf AFL revenue.
So get the reports of the Parent entity.
Hence the Redcliffe Dolphins are the favourites to be Brisbane's 2nd team. They have a leagues club. A state of the art stadium. And $100M in assets.

That's how it works pal!!!!
and 30m in revenue according to the nrl economist dude
