Yeah I do. But the point is RL and RU have multiple tiers of their sport that generate massive tv numbers, crowds, sponsors etc etc. Your mob dismisses it out of hand. Most of which is jealousy plain and simple.The_Wookie wrote: ↑Sun Jul 18, 2021 3:33 pmThey'll discount it because grand finals, national teams and origin are theatre events - people watching out of patriotic duty or curiousity, and then the next day they go about their business like nothing happened. As such true popularity not reflected in regular season - its why the socceroos will rate 2 million for a world cup game and the next weekthe aleague will rate 11,000. Its why Origin rates 2.7m, but come the weekend, will rate 700l. Its why the Wallabies will rate 800k, but Super teams rate less than 100k. You fucking know this.Terry wrote: ↑Sun Jul 18, 2021 1:55 pm
Good point. The AFL folk here are too thick to realise RL and RU have multiple tiers of their sport. Unlike their mess which has only the domestic game. They will discount an international game because their game has nothing to compare it with. It's one of those excuses they use when the other excuses aren't working!!!!
The point is they exist. They generate big numbers. And should be treated with respect.
