  1. “Damien and Nic C, I get it you both dislike AFL, but to say it’s not a national sport, is a bit of a joke.”

    While I cannot speak for Nic C, I can tell you that you have missed the mark with regard to my feelings about AFL. I love the game, but have massive concerns about how it is marketed. The way games are scheduled i.e. at least 16 Friday night games this year are all Melbourne team games, is just one of the concerns I have.

    The AFL should be aiming for 1.5 million viewers on Friday nights in my opinion and you aren’t going to achieve that if you are always scheduling Melbourne team matchups each week.

    This approach leaves the game open to being labelled provincial.

  2. bettestreep2008

    I watched a bit of YTT before switching over to the AFL.

    What I saw was a very talented – and diverse- group of young singers who deserve a better timeslot.

    They were rating over 600K on Sundays – thanks to the rotten lead in of the Project and now some idiot at Ten has put it up against the AFL!

    The producers of YTT should have a meeting with Ten execs to try and save this promising show befor Ten completely destroys it like it has done with so many other shows.

  3. NRL, AFL. Everyone has their own spin regarding the se two sports but it would be nice if the digital ratings were included so we could see for ourselves.

  4. Damien and Nic C, I get it you both dislike AFL, but to say it’s not a national sport, is a bit of a joke. AFL all across Australia has competative State Leagues In every State and Teratory. Can the NRL claim the same? For example. Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast combined has 47 Senior Listed AFL clubs with at least 90% also fielding Juniors. There are also over 20 Junior clubs that don’t field seniors. So Combine all the Clubs, that makes it well over 60 AFL clubs in the South East Corner of Queensland. Now go to the Victorian, Tasmanian, South Australian and Western Australian Rugby League Websites. All combined your lucky to get at least 30-40 rugby league clubs from the entire 4 states in question. If you watched Fox Footy today at 10am Morningside from Queensland defeated Launceston from Tasmania by 5-6 goals in the Foxtel Cup, which proves that the Aflq is at a high level of standards for a Non AFL State. Can the NRL claim the same? The answer is No!!!! If the NRL want to be truly a national they have to get rid of the NSW strangle Hold of the sport which they won’t. So League is purely a NSW sport which so happenly is played in Queensland as well.

  5. Ten signed the Death Warrant for YTT by moving it to Friday and screening it at 7pm. It also killed the movie that followed it. Monkeys would make better Programmers at Ten.

  6. AFL: 7mate 62,000 (2 cities)
    NRL: Gem 29,000 (3 cities)

    wow the NRL figures are dreadful! can Nine even commit 3 cities to those figures even on a digital channel?

  7. Only 20,000 watch a live broadcast of the Storm in their home city.Seems like the N.R.L has just as much of a problem in Melbourne as the A.F.L has in Sydney.

    • Ok let’s clear this up. It’s the first weekly outing on Gem for NRL so forgive my tardiness.

      Nine’s Live Friday Night Football has the following results on Gem presumably for two matches:
      29,000: Melb (26,000), Ade (3,000)
      19,000: (Melb 9,000), Ade (5,000), Per (6,000)
      5,000: (Per 5,000)

      These are the numbers for Nine:
      631,000 (Syd / Bris)
      338,000 (second game in Syd / Bris)
      27,000 (Melb 20,000, Ade 2,000, Per 5,000) this is the replay on Nine which happens in addition to Live broadcast on Gem.

      I don’t plan to break these down every week!

  8. @ Damien I agree the AFL isn’t really a national sport! It is a Victorian comp with some token interstate teams & television scheduling promotes that!

  9. My calculation was based on Perth’s population of approximately 1.65m versus Brisbane’s population of approximately 1.9m. If the calculation for Brisbane includes the Gold Coast, then I am happy to admit my remark
    of 85% the size is incorrect. However, I stand by my comment that the NRL rates very well in Brisbane compared to the AFL in Perth. I am well and truly aware of the timezone situation, but I don’t see that as a reason for not showing the game live on free to air. Afterall, the NFL shows their marquee game, Sunday night football, live across the country on free to air tv – in a country where the west coast is three hours behind the east coast.

    I take the point that there was a Brisbane team in the NRL last night, but this is central to my argument. The AFL has scheduled 16 Friday night games this year that are all Melbourne team affairs! I just don’t believe they are doing all they can to promote a national competition. If Friday night is the marquee game, then promote the game with this match! Play Friday night games in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth and include all teams at some point in the year.

    I think the NRL are miles ahead when it comes to television coverage and if they stick to their guns and make sure as many games get on as many free to air television sets in their next rights deal, then I will not be surprised if NRL becomes the dominant code in this country. I mean, I could watch live NRL in Perth on GEM last night, but I couldn’t watch the AFL game until 7pm (10pm eastern). I, like many fans, do not have Foxtel and simply cannot afford it at present.

  10. Hi David. Would the AFL and Ch 7 be a bit concerned about those total ratings nbrs? Two changes this year: FTA live against the gate and the blanked Foxtel live coverage (in HD too).

    Such a blockbuster, beaten by the wonderful Miss Fisher…mmmm….

  11. In actual fact Damien is closer to the actual figure. Perth is around 85% of Brisbane, however considering the Gold Coast is included in the Bris figure, then the percentage is in reality 66% for what it’s worth.

  12. @Damien
    1) Perth is only 62% of Brisbane (1.8m vs 3.0m)
    2) The NRL in Brisbane included a team from Brisbane. The AFL gamein Perth had no team from Perth
    3) The audience in Perth had a choice of watching live on Fox Footy or delay on Seven.

  13. Why can’t the networks air sport nationally! Afl in Qld & Nsw would be promoted better if given the chance….(I know it was on 7mate, but still…)

  14. The AFL must be concerned that Perth, a city with 85% of the population of Brisbane, has Friday night AFL football ratings which equate to approximately 40% of Brisbane’s NRL ratings.

    Having lived in Perth all my life, I think it is fair to say that people have lost interest in Friday night AFL. The years of 3 hour delays have simply turned people away.

    I am surprised the AFL didn’t have strict rules for their marquee game each week which includes demaning live free to air coverage to all markets in Australia. Maybe I have over estimated how much they value their product.
