Yeah but reach figures shouldn’t really be focused on because they mean nothing. We don’t know how long someone watched the game. Reach counts anyone who watched at least 1 minute I believe. So channel surfers are counted. Average is the best indicator of ratings. AFL reach will always be higher compared to NRL. Plus AFL free to air ratings are always higher than NRL. NRL rates better on Fox and Kayo.

I don’t want to enter a AFL vs NRL debate as I love both codes and let them thrive, but it’s not a debate…AFL dominates, AFL is Australia wide and our identity as a nation (Cricket Summer/AFL Footy Winter) - If NRL covered WA/SA/NT/TAS then it would be bigger and could enter the conversation, however it will always lose ratings. (Origin, another story - but that dilutes the season sadly)

‘Identity as a nation’ - what does that even mean?

The AFL is the leading code and has teams in NSW and Qld but it doesn’t rate well week to week in NSW/Qld.

Agree the NRL should have a team in Perth (already) and eventually Adelaide.

In terms of total revenue it’s 1 AFL 2 NRL 3 cricket.
