the superbowl was held during the day as recently as 2016. it depends on where in the country its being held, as they want as many people to be able to watch as possible. but the sycophants who want to copy everything american (why i have no idea, theyre hardly an icon of all things good) wont ever tell you that when saying the superbowl is a night time event.Why should we be followers?
It's got nothing to do with following Americans. We've played cricket at night for 50 years. Even play Test cricket under lights now.the superbowl was held during the day as recently as 2016. it depends on where in the country its being held, as they want as many people to be able to watch as possible. but the sycophants who want to copy everything american (why i have no idea, theyre hardly an icon of all things good) wont ever tell you that when saying the superbowl is a night time event.
going forward the only hope we have of seeing a daytime gf is if it goes to the home team and we see it in perth.
Yeah interesting numbers.Ratings have been up all year due to shorter games and the largest market being in their own homes all year.
‘Up 33% on last year’
But last year was the lowest rating GF for years
2020 - 3.8mil
2019 - 2.9mil
2018 - 3.4mil
2017 - 3.5mil
2016 - 4.1mil
2015 - 3.5mil
2014 - 3.7mil
It fits right in with the rest.
Then a couple of posts below a WC poster says: Horrible wait all day. Garbage to fill in the wait.
I though you blokes didn't wanna be part of Australia anymoreI thought it was Australia's game
Cinemas are quiet in the middle of the afternoon because people have jobsIt's just a better timeslot at night. It's why cinemas are quiet in the middle of the afternoon, why we don't have concerts at 2:30pm, etc.
Or in five or six years time the people advocating for the "spectacular! look at the fireworks! the music sounds better too!!" night time grand final will have kids and realise why people wanted it kept during the day.People are sooking like crybabies about it now, but if it does go to a night fixture from now on, like any major social change, in five or six years from now everyone will be like: 'it used to played during the daytime?'
Too bloody right. I sat with a mate and the dear wife and tried to keep a lid on it. Lit a fire in the backyard and pretended that I was having fun. To bad about the BBQ that starts at noon. To bad about the beers and the laughs and the generally great day with a yard full of dogs and kids and adults shouting at the TV. Nah, it's all about the bells and whistles and the TV ratings. The most hollow GF I can remember, and I'm a Tiger.More people watched it on TV because everyone in Victoria had to stay home, not because the game was played at night.
Of course the TV numbers were going to look like that.
Keep the grand final to during the day!
