I've never been to a game live, but I feel like it's the perfect TV sport, not sure how the rolling line would look in certain seats in the stadiums.

How do the TV ratings compare to AFL? Baring in mind League is effectively a two state dominant sport.

We don't do comparisons, but it's pretty closeish I think. Certainly restricted with teams on the east. Crowds are a much bigger concern.

The TV product is hard to beat these days but being live is always a good experience. If you have never been to a game next Saturday night the Storm take on Manly. Two bitter rivals of the last 10 years. AAMI Park is first class for watching league from any seat and maybe a last chance to see one of the greatest in Cam Smith. Pently of Origin players on both sides too. Assuming you live in Melbourne.

It's on the list, only a recent fan so I follow the game even though my team is Storm by default I don't follow them that closely specifically. You make a good point I should see Cam before he retires.

Would love a second team to be in Vic would happily join as a foundation member being new to the sport. I generally enjoy watching neutral games though regardless of who's playing.

A pretty embarrassing day for the NRL crowd wise Saturday with two shockers.

9,636 at ANZ, 20,671 at Bankwest and only 6,532 at Jubilee
