I wouldnt want to acknowledge crowds either if I was you.
I came across a fine little article on my way to the forum today. It was titled, "Why are we so worried about attendances". It was written on the Roar sports site by some dude who calls himself "The Wookie" lolololololol!!!!

Among many many gems was this line.............."Fans and pundits need to essentially ignore the AFL’s attendance figures. It’s a statistical anomaly in Australian sport....." Lolololololollololol!!!!!!

So there ya have it straight from the horses mouth! The bumsniffing wookie in absolute lock step on this with good 'ol Terry lolololol!!!!! The AFL's attendances are an outlier.

Now come on bummy...................no more hypocrisy from you please. It does nothing for your .................ummmm.........credibility lololololol!!!!

Im sure you did come across it today

its funny that you trot this out every so often like it wins you an argument - you posted the same article in 2019 in an Origin discussion thread. Im well aware of what I wrote - the message was to fans of codes with smaller attendances about relativity and fans whinging about their codes not getting crowds comparable to the AFL. It wasnt about invalidating the AFLs crowds just because they smash yours.

Thanks bummy. And yep I've got an incredible memory which is good to call out your BS lolololol!!!!

But on this I agree whole heartedly with you, "Fans and pundits need to essentially ignore the AFL's attendance figures..." so that is what I will do.

Cheers bummy!

In this case, you should worry about your own bs. Ignoring AFL crowds as a statistical outlier in the context of a fight club is utter cowardice, and you know it.

If we just chose to ignore any NRL favoring metric you lot would hit the roof, as the league crowd did for years over say, regionals or origin.

You post so much about me and my posts or tweets - even when i go away from the forum for months - its pretty obvious your obssessed with me. Its kind of cute in a way.

The gap between the top two codes seem to be growing.

Both Super Rugby and A+League appear, to me, to be nearly non existent in the media and attendance figures are often not published. TV ratings are very poor.
What is their short and long term future?


There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.

The Aleague has no hope .
When any player with ability heads off overseas to earn $$$ then that relegates the comp to about a 4th rate comp .
It has gone backwards since it started .
A few highs such as the Wanderers joint But the fizzled put quick .
So many predictions .
Sleeping giant .
Will be no 1 sport in Aust .
Etc
Isn't happening .

RU is slowly sinking in Aust .
The elitist attitude & game mired in rules that slow everything down is a huge problem .


LIC self ownage
Lol $10 NRL tickets.$10 NRL tickets .How pathetic is that ?
Crickets chirping after I post $5 AFlol tickets .
Self ownage ..no one does it better .

Well thats a great exaggeration.
Are you sure you didn't mean on a pro rata basis?

Still debatable but one thing that is not: on a pro rata basis the AFL is undoubtably the most attended footbal code on the planet….by a long way

A League has only survived due to being propped up with promise of hope of improving tv ratings to broadcasters and expansion...
getting an over than what is it worth TV DEAL> last 10 years..
and has no delivered and has actually went backwards..

the Same thing has happen to UNION>> heading backwards.

long term they will continue to play second fiddle.
A League relies on Multi millionaires to fund the clubs losing millions.. *how long does this last?

Union will be relying on the massive cash windfall from the RUGBY UNION WORLD CUP in 2027
and exposure to move forward

aren't yawnion looking at an equity deal with someone similar to the All Blacks , or was that sooker

both codes are broke
their clubs / franchises are broke

no one is watching at the grounds or on TV
sookers only saving grace is it is played nationally in huge numbers , mainly because it is easy to play & soft

yawnion doesn't even have this tho, 4th in the codes for participants by some way.
it will limp on to 2027 & its world cup which will need to emulate the success of the 2003 world cup, otherwise its a bleak future for the rah rahs

Was amazing to watch. Never seen anything quite like that. Seemed more intense to me than Plugger, Dunstal, and Ablett.
