The average free-to-air audience for the NRL was 600,181 in 2018, compared to 307,793 for the AFL (down 13 per cent on 2017), acknowledging that the AFL has cross-over timeslots and doesn’t go free to air with the same games nationally.

The average subscription TV audience (Foxtel) for the NRL was 240,879 in 2018 (up 3 per cent on 2017), compared to 184,821 for the AFL (down 7 per cent on 2017).


On a positive note, our attendances are on par with NRL

NRL gets 5k in the rain all the time.......and the reason they don't have a team on the Central Coast is that they don't want regular crowds of 6k

TBF I really like CCM. Perfect little stadium for a tight community. I have a massive soft spot for them. If they can sustain their club with crowds such as 6k then so be it. We need caps on salaries gone so if they do get relegated they can continue to sustain themselves.

would be interesting to see how ccm v adelaide went against the cricket yesterday when people all over social media were claiming they didn't even know was on.

Also posted in another thread but Ihad a look at the Foxtel numbers for the other codes and average audience for the NRL was 240,879 in 2018 (up 3 per cent on 2017), compared to 184,821 for the AFL (down 7 per cent on 2017.Interstingly, the commentators put this down to the NRL being a tight contest this year increasing viewers while AFL had alot of one-sided games causing the drop.

its my understanding that the AFL started low and picked up a little as the season went on. this makes the "one sided games" argument irrelelavant as most of the garbage games come at the end of the season when teams are out of finals contention.

“At the close of R3, the average Foxtel audience for the A-league has dropped 34.35% to an average of 52,000 per game, down from 78,000 at the start of the 2017-18 season. R3 was watched by 221,000 on Foxtel. Streaming figures not available.”

Its been a difficult nay disastrous start to the season, crowds and ratings heading south with memberships looking to have a slight growth and streaming an unknown but being touted as high as a third of the viewing audience.  

There is no hiding we are not in a good spot.

My reading of the tea leaf’s and tarot card’s says there are four main reasons.
·         Three years of civil war between stakeholders.
·         Near constant negativity over the last three years by both main stream but especially social media.
·         Media, infighting today, reports I have read indicate Fox and Ten new CBS ownership's don’t like each other, and SBS when not in charge always sulk. I have read where   Fox are concerned the clubs when they get together may go to a totally new broadcast format and they are none to happy.
·         Finally, the splitting of the EPL & Hal viewers

We need to win back trust.

As to whether P & R is a fix all, its a mute point as I see it in that we all agree it needs to happen, but the money man say its financially impossible at this stage of our development.

Who ever finishes up in charge has a mega job to stop the decline and start growth again.

Yeah

I know that sometimes as I'm getting ready to watch matches on tv, I think "actually, CBS and Fox haven't been getting along lately...so I think I'll skip tonight's game".

Thats clever of you. I admire how astute you must be.

As for others maybe its the lack of promotion especially cross promotional activity ... I watched the project in the week leading up to rd 1 and the lead up to Rd 2... almost zero mention and yet Super Cars and 10's own internal shows mentioned heaps of times...

One of the key reasons for going to Ten was the supposed promotional effort a FTA would make ... but its been very little and the talk is CBS & News do not like each other .

Right.  So the reason half of our existing audience has disappeared (in about 2 years) is that fans have forgotten HAL games are played on Friday and Saturday nights. 
Forget new fans, the old ones have just forgotten ----  and they need reminders through "cross promotional activity".

ok

Also ---- "CBS & News do not like each other" --- so...y'know --- that causes existing fans to avoid watching matches as well.

If you could read there where four major points, so lets forget about the other three and be a total smart arse and bang on and on and ignore the other 3, also ignore what a lack of promotion does... further lets ignore the opening of the post that says we are in deep deep trouble.... 

Posting insecurity ignore 95% of a post... then concentrate on one aspect and then misrepresent that ... do you work for a political party ...

I think foxtel losing EPL is the biggest factor.
As a curtain raiser the Aleague benefitted to the.massive audience that would tune tn to the EPL
My instinct is that the price of broadcasting will probably be worth 70% of the current deal even with expansion teams X 2
Then what happens?

Its a difficult time for old pauly, with the boardroom revolts and political power grabs, money squabbles, foreign country identties encroaching on the HAL (first Brisbane acknowledging their Dutch heritage, then WP with their Maori, and now MV with Japanese shirt) collapsing crowd and TV numbers, the HAL is turning into the thing he despises the most, the NSL (but without the junior development). The horror.

I suspect Paulc was rejected by one too many Greek girls while growing up. I can’t explain the hatred otherwise...

maybe he lost his girlfriend to a handsome SM player (striker most likely) when they were playing Brisbane Hollandia and he has never been able to get over it.
