The game is far worse to watch with the stand rule. How could anyone think that the stand rule and the ump abuse rule was going to make the game a better watch? It goes beyond logic to think those decisions were to make the game more "watchable"

And for case of point..... ratings were down all year as well as attendance. The GF ratings were awful compared to other seasons.



So if they did it to make it a better watch, they should have been fired as it clearly failed
Agree that the stand rule is appalling. Not sure that's why ratings were down though.

Ratings were exactly in line with 2019, which was a hard sell (compared to if it had been Collingwood v Richmond, for example). Ratings were down v 2020 and 2021 because people were allowed to be outside their house
