So a league is mickey mouse & afl has massive advantage in funding & exposure. Despite this wanderers drew larger crowd this week & have average attendance in Sydney above or about the same most years (I don't even believe showground numbers by will let them stand).The relevance of the national audience is that know that the sydney numbers can only be some fraction of that. It's that sad
I don't know where you get $30M from, but as the Wookie says the Giants only get an additional ~$15M and that would include AFLW and likely academy funding etc. They also generate about $20M themselves which would be a lot more then the Wanderers
Obviously also that money largely pays players and staff in what are far far larger professional operations than your mickey mouse a league franchises. It is not marketing spend. Though the kicker is, there would be kids who met Coniglio at their primary school in 2012 who are now at university. The same kids would have seen the Wanderers win the ACL around that time and would have worked out how vacuous it all is. That is the awful truth.
Also, maybe 10k separated games in viewership in Sydney.
Guess I win.
