But i will say Grand Final's are different, it is ingrained in to you of when the game is and when.
Society and fans know time and date of when the big dance is scheduled to play.
if you don't know when the AFL Grand Final is by now.. you are not gonna be watching either way...
likewise with the NRL GF
It’s the casual viewer they are after ... of course the footy supporter will know when it’s on ... that’s the core. They’re after the person who is home and watching tv who otherwise wouldn’t watch. What that means... putting it on when people are home rather than out on a sunday drive, beach, or visiting friends etc. Sunday night is perfect for it.
