Wookie keeps track of them in this thread.Where can I see average viewerships?
Is there a summary of this available?Wookie keeps track of them in this thread.
On that page he has replied to me with the total averages per club up to the end of round 7. It includes Channel 7 and Fox viewerships. If you want a more in-depth version he will probably give it to you if you ask. The viewerships per game are also posted in there during every round.Is there a summary of this available?
why would a sponsor pick stkilda with an average attendance of 25k over richmond with an average attendance of 48k, or essendon with an average attendance of 41k? additionally why would a broadcaster agree to pay the same to show a club like stkilda when they can estimate there may be 50% less market interest.
if clubs like stkilda want to be given primetime games more often, then they need to give up the millions in extra assistance funding they get, which the afl only gets because they can get the biggest broadcast deals by selling the games with the biggest market share. if you want an even playing field then no more handouts.
but i know youre not going to accept that, so just shush while the big clubs earn the money that keeps the smaller clubs solvent.

Rounds 3,5, and 8 had double friday night fixtures shown simultaneously.
don't confuse yourself,So if it is just about ratings then why have a rolling fixture?
what does school on Monday have to do with not being able to attend a sunday arvo game? unless of course you 2+ hours from Melbourne?You could get Kayo for free for a whole year recently so FTA isn’t the issue. The complaint is being fair and giving all fans access to nice time slots when they can attend games. Sunday arvo sucks due to kids and school on Monday.
Yep, our "primetime" games this year have beenThe problem is that Channel 7 and the AFL would be acutely aware of which games rate best.
So what this tells us is that a s**t Essendon still gets more viewers than a good St Kilda.
And people wonder why the AFL did their best to cover up the Essendon drug scandal.
I'm just saying it's the worst slot with young kids. Very early in the morning wouldn't work either due to kids footy but we don't have those.what does school on Monday have to do with not being able to attend a sunday arvo game? unless of course you 2+ hours from Melbourne?
When I was a kid we lived 3 hours away and Sunday games were basically the only games we could get to.
Interesting.well fu** me dead
Because all they care about is money.It's a pretty decent point. Why are they inflicting 3 consecutive Essendon Friday night games on us? That's inclusive of a game against West Coast and West Coast shouldn't be playing on a Friday night.
Embarrassing fixturing from the AFL.
I don’t know how I’ve lived so long with my parents letting me stay up as a child on weekends to watch the footy!What is this Helen Lovejoy narrative about children and attending football games?
I think little Johnny will still be ok to do finger painting if he gets home from the footy at 8:00 o'clock on Sunday night.
Richmond West Coast friday night was scheduled back in December. In fact the first 9 rounds were so the floating fixture is only relevant from Rounds 10 on.Because all they care about is money.
Despite their s**t season I’m sure Essendon still rate well for a number of reasons or the AFL feel as a historically good club they will get attention.
The AFL’s whole charade with the floating fixture was up when they put Richmond West Coast on a Friday night.
Every man and his dog knew that was going to be an awful game but hey guess what? There’s a lot of Tiger and Eagles fans so it probably had some okay ratings compared to what else was on offer that round.
It’s genuinely rubbish and if the AFL isn’t going to be fair dinkum about scheduling decent games in prime slots then bloody go back to the full 23 rounds released from day dot. Much easier for planning through the year and at least the disappointment of a s**t game on a Friday doesn’t come from a s**t decision made only a few weeks earlier.
