The figure I like to look at is the ratings in Sydney for afl games not involving Sydney and GWS. That many of these games rate bit at 6 or 3 thousand tells me that is support for Aussie rules in general ... small but significant .
TV ratings continue to soar in Sydney/NSW. Would be great to see streaming numbers.
Ratings highlights from Round 4:
– The NSW audience for the Sydney Swans was up 88% on the average Thursday night NSW audience of 2019, driven by Sydney metro, up 98%.
– Thursday night’s audience in Northern NSW was up 142% and up 31% in Southern NSW.
– The average TV audience for Sydney vs Essendon across the country was 955K (551K for metro, 196K for regional and 207K for pay TV) across Australia.
– Saturday’s match between the GIANTS and Collingwood was 42% greater than the next best GIANTS audience in NSW this season.
*Note: Ratings exclude streaming services (including Kayo)

This is a bit of a conundrum. Can Freddo or beatup please explain. Apparently AFL is 'soaring" in NSW. Freddo goes on daily tours counting the numbers around the Gold Coast. He reports fumbling players, caps, jersey's and interest everywhere. Everywhere he looks lololololol............yeah I know...........but anyway!!!!!
If so.......... why does RL win the TV ratings on a regular basis year to year?? It doesn't seem to be in decline or lacking interest. This year on current trends RL is gonna hand the AFL a right royal whipping in TV numbers. How does this reconcile with the AFL 'soaring' in traditional RL area's? Shouldn't this be reflected in TV numbers?
Beatup.............Freddy...............can you pump up and please explain!!!!!!!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!
