speaking of crowds
it may not be football either

but what the F has happened to BBL crowds in the last 5 years ??

5 years ago you couldn't get a crowd in Brisbane under 25K & a few cracked 30K
Adelaide never under 40K & up to 50K
the Sydney derby got 42K at the SCG
there was crowds of up to 80K in Melbourne

now
cracking 10K anywhere is not too bad 8-[
I mean

The F ?? :hmm:

maybe a factor , but it can't be the only reason
literally the ass has fallen out of the game day attendances in less then half a decade.

Looks like the power of TV $$ has ruined the match day attendances in cricket now too then

Its been happening in RL since super league (24 years ) , with unfriendly crowd kickoff times
Monday Nights
Thursday nights
6pm Fridays
But TV pays most of the bills these days so its what it is.

I see the AFL is now bowing down to TV in this dept too with lots of Thursday night games in 2022. Watch people get sick of attending games in this time slot with work , school etc the following day. The TV will become a very viable alternative.

Maybe the TV ratings might become a real contest between the codes in 2022 :cool:

2351 at AAMI park on Friday night for western united game
The Melb derby last night also at AAMI park was a long way from being full , probs 18,000 odd
that'd be the smallest crowd for that match i can recall
& TV ratings are as bad as they've ever been.

but............ some American company has pumped significant money into the comp buying out 33% ownership

seriously ? :shock:
:hmm:
Talk about pissing it up against the wall :lol: :lol: :rofl: :rofl: :(/ :(/

Australia’s Game dominates sports crowds.



"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

There are lies, damn lies and ratings.

I didn't realise the AFL GF out rated the NRL GF by so much and absolutely slaughtered SoO - I get that is is just capital cities - and not all of them with Tassie left out - but still. And wasn't the NRL grand final primed with two states having a team with AFL a local derby of two pretty low supported clubs.
