The AFL have no reason to lie about crowds.

You Rugby League guys are just jealous that the Giants home average is about the same as the Bulldogs in the NRL :)
get a grip

Canterbury Bulldogs average this year is 11.5k
Pre covid 2019 it was 15k

Camera flashed to western side throughout game & that looked empty too. When commentators say figure is generous you know it..

Look it doesn't matter. The rest of the country (other than Western Sydney) can enjoy sport & & you guys can do whatever you do other than watch sport.

I mean although Brisbane is not a Footy state at least it follows Rugby League/Rugby a little. Sydney is just a bit of a lost cause.

They are definitely the most popular sports there but they are not a religion like AFL is in half of Australia, like American Football is in USA, like Football (soccer) is in England/Europe, like Ice Hockey is in Canada & like Rugby is in New Zealand.

There is no passion in QLD or NSW except for State of Origin which is technically just a Exhibition/All Star irrelevant game.

Of course it gets good ratings as it is a great contest. Even I enjoy it & find rugby league very boring.

It's like the All Star game in the NBA. It rates very well but when it comes down to it it means nothing. Its not going to help your team win the premiership is it.

that is the thing it has nothing to do with the Premiership
Fans of the game get to experience another level of the game (another tier if i might add)

an All star event in NBA or NFL are quite pathetic.. NO defence ( no one cares who wins) it is all about showing the talent of each team
in a muck around game that no one takes serious.

State of Origin is Unique.
and to why it is so successful

I agree that it is unique & it is quite good. You can thank the AFL for Origin because Rugby League copied it off us in 1980.

AFL Origin started in the 19th century before Rugby League had even been invented. Even QLD & NSW had a team.

That's a bit of information I bet you Rugby League blokes didn't know.

I think that’s what killed it in AFL. The premiership was seen as more valuable than a SoO game or representation. Players were using it recover from niggling injuries, coaches didn’t want their stats playing amd risk being injured. When the Vfl made it a rules that their doctor mus examine any injuries and threaten suspensions for players who didn’t play without a good reason - it was done and dusted.

It would be great to see it be in the AFL but would I want my teams star player injured and out for the season due to SoO - no way! F it happened in an ordinary game then thems the breaks - but for an exhibition game that means not much !?.

oh dear , the dopiness & jealousy of fumblers knows no bounds


it is the biggest rivalry in Australian sport & the level of competition is unmatched certainly here & probably anywhere in the world.
It is fiercely contested making the biggest club games in the fumbles n bumbles pale in comparison.
Full houses everywhere its played in Oz

90K in Melb
80K in Sydney
60K in Perth
50K in Adelaide & Brisbane

so , park your jealousy fumbler
RL's SOO is the best sport you will see in Australia & whats more
you fumblers know it too :cool:

only fumbling spastics think representing collingthorn or Saint killed her is more important & prestigious then representing your state

but i suppose when thats all you have , well , thats all you have
the same boring as bat shit collection of suburbs playing each other ... its inane crap tbh & the main reason this silly little vicderpian oddity will remain trapped in the same sthn corner of one country for good

TV stations will rightly ask ?

answer... nuffin

RL on the other hand has
so many levels its not funny

the NRL will have sides in every state in the next 10 years & a 2nd side in NZ

but unlike the shitbag boring aflol

international pacifika
world cups
4 yearly kangaroo tours again

all stars
9 tournaments
