This is all true. But the reason there's more money is there's more people watching.You don’t know anymore than I do if it will get more viewers as a twilight game, I think no matter when it’s played it will be the biggest event of the year as it has always been. The same huge number of people will still watch it.
If it is going to be moved which I think it is inevitable then it should go to a night game not a twilight game.
But let’s not kid ourselves here, this is not about more viewers as the GF is the biggest tv event in the country no matter what time it’s played, this is about the broadcasters making more money from advertising, they can charge a higher rate in twilight and night. The same people will still watch it though.
Money, money, money. It’s a fantasy to think the AFL are thinking about good for the game, more viewers etc etc.
Advertisers will pay more if there are more viewers. The AFL TV rights deal will be worth more money, which means more+better coverage, and more money going to the league which is ultimately a good thing for everyone.
hell they may even make so much money they'll be able to hire some actual broadcasters to call games instead of luke darcy!
