90% of games were empty.

(if i were the AFL i would play MAGIC in Sydney)
1. 90 percent were not empty.

2. People couldn't travel to QLD from interstate.

3. People still concerned with Covid

4. I believe limits still on crowds - yes, pretty sure there was.

5. A targeted one off weekend event is different to playing across a season.

6. You have many more AFL supporters in QLD than Sydney.
1. heaps of games were empty, except Lions games.
2. was a 50% cap and lifted to 75% cap for GF
3. exactly my point, people could not travel from Interstate... (hence people coming for MAGIC would be heavily from Interstate.
and that is also why crowds were tiny.
4. 2020 was not as bad as you think in QLD> (the intital 4-6 rounds was locked out pretty much.
5. yeah def a target event will be alot better attended That is a no brainer
6. more supporters in QLD because Victorians move here lol (ofc) i play Cricket, half the team is from Victoria. (mostly in pass few years.)

1. not true

2. true - so hence low crowds at some games. I personally went to some Collingwood games.

3. We agree, that Magic round in Brisbane would definitely get people from interstate - adding to the local support.


4. I am pretty sure they only got back to full capacity for the grand final. I went to the finals and the GF plus games throughout the year.

5. glad we agree.

6. Definitely a lot of ex-pat victorians and South Aussies here but there is also a lot of local support too. People have been coming to SE QLD for generations - and continue to do so - this all flows down to local support as their kids have kids, and have kids. Also SE QLD has a long history with Aussie Rules going back to the early days - unlike sydney area. You want to see the impact of migration from South Australia and Victoria - go to Port Douglas where Aussie Rules is the dominant sport in this small little town - of which I will be visiting in 4 weeks once more and retiring to in 2 years (counting the days)

Why not - RL have been using State of Origin for years and this was an Aussie rules concept.

Rugby League has copied AFL in every single thing since its inception in 1908.

It will never change.

I am pretty sure the AFL only did a night Grand Final because those games were in Brisbane (2020) & Perth (2021) because of Covid in Melbourne. Nothing to do with the NRL

Now it is back at the home of football it will stay at the 2:30pm timeslot.

It would be folly to not do something because another code did it first - if it is a better way or a good idea - why would you not do it?

Would be interesting if SoO was trademarked. Don't think they could copyright it per se but could trademark it?

Obviously it works in the NRL as no one goes to the games in Sydney so doing it in Brisbane makes sense for the NRL cause they really have nothing to lose.

AFL would be stupid to copy this ridiculous thing as they don't need to as they get massive crowds to most games unlike the NSWRL. Oh sorry the NRL :)
I agree, silly idea and no need for it…not worth the money.
Depending on where its played, may attract similar crowds that the NRL round does…and that would be disastrous.
I would be surprised if it lasts more than a season.


There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.
Rugby league, Australias most popular game in some of North Eastern Australia.

well it is 100% Official
Adelaide will host the Extra Round

Which also looks as the extra round was included in the recent broadcast deal

(as talked about only a week after recent tv deal)
