Ratings were always going to be up slightly. Shorter games rated higher all year.

Given there would normally be 100,000 Melbournians at the game (plus tens of thousands at club live sites) - not contributing to ratings, and we were in lockdown so it’s not like there was anything else to do, it’s not suprising Melbourne was up.
And Brisbane is a normally small market for the league which became the home of the season, that would’ve provided a big boost too.
Does that really explain 600k more than the previous year :think:

2019 is by far the lowest in recent years, one team was heavy favourite and the game was one way traffic for that team.

No doubt last year was a high audience for a grand final. But it wasn’t some unprecedented audience - and in an unprecedented situation it needed to be to prove any point.
