which is true. (codes and leagues would be differently split)Quolls2019 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 22, 2023 1:46 pmThere is a bit of a difference between the popularity of the codes/leagues and their respective clubs, but in Qld I’d say both the AFL and the lions should be ranked 2nd….The Dolphins may well eclipse them but it is a bit early to tell.
though AFL just pumps money into QLD like there is no tomorrow.
which makes AFL clubs stand on there two feet.
(which makes them look bigger to say UNION)
UNION is actually quite popular in QLD at grassroots levels.
it fails at the top, and has limited resources
REDS made 5.5mill profit last year.
NRL does not really pump anything into QLD
it is just naturally strong and the clubs are strong at NRL level and QRL
