but RA teams are part of a competition shared with NZ, even though NZ rights are separately negotiated. If we tried to exclude NZ from NRL calculations on the same basis league fans would go bananas - but what with rights being based on the competition, not the sporting body in any given country - then its only fair that super rugbys NZ rights come into the equation.And I don't quite get what you mean about 'pull this shit with the AFL'. Each governing body does a deal and gets the money. RA gets it for 5 teams in Australia. And the amount they got was about equal to the amount the NRL gets for broadcasting into NZ where the Kiwi's have only one team. So that is what I was comparing. The AFL didn't come into the conversation.
Having said that RA used to get a proportional amount of $$ from Sanzaar but since the refiguration of their comp I'm not sure exactly if they still do this.
Gee Wooks, me telling your fumbling mates to calm down and look at the facts is not hypocritical my friend. As you are well aware, sometimes robust language is used here. I'm the least of the offenders in that respect, yourself included.
As far as TV rights: I was comparing in Australia. And in any case your mob refuse to acknowledge NZ Tv ratings for the NRL. I know and appreciate you used to tally them when you were allowed. Your fumbling mates went nuts and struck 'em out. And still do. Hypocrisy??????? Hmmmmmm!!!!!!
