Its only ever about crowds for AFL folk.This year it won't be about the size of the crowds but the TV ratings!
It is going to be interestng to see how much difference the Night GFmakes if any.
NO it's not!
For good reason the top 5 sports telecasts goes hand in hand with advertising dollars/the value of sports media rights.Its also about more than 3 or 4 top rating events. Its like theres 365 days in a year or something.
The value is the advertising dollars/rates & i have no idea outside the top 5 sporting telecasts.What about the top 20 or 50?
I was commenting on the top 5 sporting telecasts in the country, all in the next few weeks. If you want to talk about the media rights deal go your hardest.It seems so. As it's the whole season that counts, I'm sure I'm on the right page. I don't really know what page you're on.
it really does not.If the grand final really outrates the previous years finals, then the argument of keeping the grand final during the day would be put to bed.
Mate! Without the TV dollars you wouldn't have a team to follow and ratings determine what the TV networks will pay!It's that simple!it really does not.
look at the poll on the main site regarding how exicted people are for this grand final. of course, there are other major factors for that(not in Melbourne for one), but for me, and only me, the fact I can't do what I normally do on grand final ruins what the day means to me.
I couldnt give a stuff when the AFL GF rates 3 mil or whatever it will be, with increased amounts in the northern states. Does not effect me one bit and only useful for a banana measuring contest. great number but it really doesn't mean as much as you think.
I don't have a team to "follow"..... Love the swans but I am a proud Tasmanian.Mate! Without the TV dollars you wouldn't have a team to follow and ratings determine what the TV networks will pay!It's that simple!
