Take my example for instance. If the Suns and Pies are on at the same time I can only watch 1.

Also, had to get fox as they always show the QLD teams into home markets on FTA so without Fox I would miss the game I want to watch also.

thirdly, of course all numbers should be added up as a total. though you can also add
fox and FTA separately, it gives it a good run down..
no one is saying you would watch all 9 games. However, even if you can spare 6 hrs to watch sport on Saturday, that's 2 AFL games and 3 NRL games. Same viewing, 50% more ratings counted
Still making excuses!!!!!!!!!!!!! Incredible!!! It would appear that you're setting up this divergence due to your lack of confidence in this seasons fumbling numbers. True Pal???????

Fred, If you could watch every game you wanted than why would Pay TV pay Billions?

I think that’s another issue Pussy. I was just highlighting as an example ... if I had a set top box metre rating thing and the Suns and Pies were playing at the same time ... ratings for 1 game only however if on seperate or there would be ratings for the two games.... which I thought would be common sense and not need explaining. So games played in isolation would mean better ratings overall for each game.

afl.
Game 1 can be watched by 50% of viewers. say 50 people

Total possible viewers 150
NRL
Game 1 can be watched by 50% 0f viewers
Game 2 " " 50% of viewers

What are you on about here Pussy ?

All I was saying in response to Leroy who put forth that no one is really going to watch all 9 games of afl ... this postulating that it doesn’t matter if they overlap... was that does if you have a set top box and can only watch one game when the other one you want to watch is on at the same time. It would have to impact ratings... by how much though ??

This is just total BS pal. The TV ratings companies put out the numbers. They do not have an Asterix against movies that go for 90 mins as opposed to those that go for 120 mins. Same applies to sport. No one anywhere talks about your BS except a few idiot fumblers here making more excuses.

End of story!!!!!!!!!!!

It's really a non issue and irrefutable - if two matches are on at once you can only watch one. I'm not sure why this is being questioned or argued about? If they were showed separately - you can watch should should you desire.

the AFL strategically schedule matches,

for example.

Suns v Swans is not going to rate that well if shown nationally in it's dedicated timeslot. (by it self)

So they schedule it with another match
Richmond v St Kilda for the Melbourne market > to boost the National total.

there is a reason the AFL do this and they have been doing it for years.

and one of the Herald Sun sports writers.

The AFL have 27 hrs of sport to telecast every weekend. Rather than start some games before noon or after 9pm they schedule some concurrently, which lowers ratings. That's the unfortunate consequence of having a 2.5hr game with 9 games per round. However, Fox would have known this from before they signed the contract and accounted for that in their deal.

No Problems there. It is what it is.

The only problem is when you 1. compare the average ratings for each game to a sport which shows every game in isolation. 2. add all the ratings up to a total and claim that shows overall popularity. They are vastly different conditions and demonstrate barely more than the scheduling differences

But they will still rate more as an average and a total if they were both played in isolation. This is because neutral viewers will watch many games not involving their side

Only Marginally better not a huge difference.
Especially the day games.

it all goes back to, how many punters will watch all 9 games.

and even when you have the clashing of games, you have the FTA component beamed into home states.

Take out that FTA and your got an excellent point.

it's not about all 9 games. The moment 2 matches are played at the same time both are ratings are compromised. If they could be played one after the other the ratings would be higher. Every Saturday we see this where a game played in isolation gets higher ratings
