You seem to be very upset over the stats that this bloke Haidar has put together Wookie my friend. Why so??? He's just reporting the truth. I mean it's not his fault RL clubs top the charts. Chill out my friend!!!!!
Im not upset. Disagreeing with someones position doesnt make someone either triggered or upset, whatever you wish to think. hes reporting his truth, and I disagree with it. I disagree with his position that social media ranking has anything to do with the clubs commercial revenue. And it doesnt as demonstrated above.
Wookie 'ol mate, 'ol friend, 'ol pal...............this is a straw man argument if ever I've seen one!!!!! No where in the article did Haidar say that social media ranking had anything to do with commercial revenue. Nowhere !! You just introduced it into your retort because your fave sport dipped out. He at no stage mentioned revenue.
He just stated an incontrovertible truth!!!! Here is his final summation:
"Traditional measures such as memberships and crowd averages undoubtedly show the AFL as the nation's favourite. But technology has changed the way we consume sport, meaning streams and followers are perhaps more accurate metrics in determining the true influence, reach and brand power of Australia's football teams."
Yep, gotta agree with that!!!! There are many metrics to measure success. In this argument the AFL win some and the NRL win some. You introduced another metric that was irrelevant to the point being made.
But have a great week Wookster!!!! The start of the AFL season should put a smile on ya face. I predict tonight's first game will top 1.5M viewers & easily beat RL's restart last week. But of course that is one game in a long season. Buckle up and away we go lololololol!!!!!!!!!
