There 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.
which is true. (codes and leagues would be differently split)

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

Be interested to know how the Reds did so well with profit…their crowds are not great and the television rights for Super Rugby were disappointing.
There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.

Rugby Union certainly struggles on the Gold Coast - Aussie Rules has a very strong following and many levels in their competitions. I think Rugby Union has to join in on the Brisbane leagues given lack of clubs - this was the case of fees years back anyway.

The only place that would play Rugby on the Gold Coast would be TSS because its a private school that plays in the GPS Rugby competition which is actually pretty big.

I went to Churchie so I should know.

Certainly the 2022 season attendance was well below 20,000. Hard to tell as they don't release all the figures.
2023 looks worse…and less attendance figures are being released.

Also I don't think anyone has ever said that QLD will become a footy state & take over Rugby League.

Please show me evidence of someone saying that.

The Broncos will always be the biggest & most popular sporting club in QLD. I think the Lions are second though when 15 years ago the Reds would have come in second. The reds are pretty much irrelevant now just like Rugby Union is.

Your beloved compulsive lying leader said it .
Get outa the bubble …look at the bullshit Aflol house talks …

& this bloke is the chief bullshit artist




But the fixture clash with the NRL is also a test for the AFL, which has discussed with pride in the past month the foothold it is establishing in the northern state. At the season launch at the Malthouse theatre early in March, AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan declared the code was on the verge of becoming the biggest in Queensland.

McLachlan said “we know we need [to build] an oval a week, every week, to cater for that growth” of Australian rules football in the sunshine state. We are seeing [participation] numbers lifting above pre-Covid levels, particularly in Queensland where AFL, within a year or two, is on the brink of being the biggest code in the state,” McLachlan said. “[That is] something unthinkable a decade ago.”

As I said in the post before Rugby League will always be the number 1 footy code in QLD. If the AFL can get second then I think its doing very well especially considering how unpopular it was in the 80s & early 90s

I just said Rugby League is number 1. It would great if AFL got the number 2 spot which I think it is.

After tonight's crowd, against the strongest challenge possible, Australian Rules proved they are clearly the 2nd code in Brisbane.
