    You sure buy the propaganda don't you? Still a troll. Please refer me to international AFL games played annually since it started as a sport. That's 1858 to now.

    How's the viewing figures for State of Origin in AFL?

    How's their viewing/attendance figures in New Zealand?

    How's the attendance and ratings for their fully professional comp in England going?

    How much did they get for their exclusive broadcast deal with channel 7 for their World Cup?

    Well, this is bullshit too

    It's not a politics issue. It's a human rights issue

    Ok then....lets have nrl talking abortion and assisted dying for the very sick. Hmmmm?

    What gives the right for any organisation to speak on behalf of ALL its players, staff and officials.

    I am pretty sure many would vote yes and many would vote no.

    They need to butt out

    Mate....netball is more international sport than league.

    Does that make it a better game?

    Facts are these.

    AFL draw three times our werkly crowds.

    AFL have more people watching their game on tele as well

    AFL sold over 100,000 tickets to GF, we sold 80,000....but around 8,000 were free giveaways

    AFL had 55,000 outside the ground watching their GF on screens.
    We had a paltry 1,800 people.

    AFL broadcast rights earn 15% more income than league

    AFL merchandise revenue figures are 250% more than ours

    What part of all that still tells you we can learn nothing from AFL ?!

    That's my point - these figures aren't comparing apples with apples.
    (ie: actual registered juniors playing real games in organised weekly comps)

    You seem hellbent on missing the point though, so carry on.

    All this hate rivalry, stats, crowds and pissing contests.
    FMD relax people.
    TBH I think AFL and NRL should be allowed to get married if they want to but only if we marry the Swans - not the other poofters.

    He also wanted his shitty game to "butt out" of the same sex marrriage issue. You share more than one similarity
    Considering the AFL had to invent two new teams in order to play an extra game per week (that's 12.5% of content), and the deal offered by Rupert Murdoch was more of a deliberate "up yours" to NRL boss David Smith at the time, I'd say the NRL has done alright here. Also worth noting that the NRL may have got even more if they'd let the broadcasters retain scheduling power. I'm assuming your 15% guess doesn't include the $100m the NRL got from SkyNZ. AFL would be lucky to get $100k

    Well quite frankly I don't see equal rights as a political issue. It should just be.

    And it could have been a simple vote in parliament, if commonsense prevailed.

    I have no problem with the NRL and AFL being more inclusive by declaring their support for equal rights.

    The 'political issue' is not so much about sport getting involved - after all, sport has no real agenda here. The discussion should be more about why religion is getting involved.

    Look, Ive got no problem with AFL and NRL getting married I just think our children need to be protected in schools. I don't want my kids taught AFL in school. Its unnatural. I believe only NRL education is appropriate and thats the biggest problem with AFL and NRL being allowed to marry. Think of the children.

    Come on now, the AFL have their "International Rules", the RL World Cup with their cultural greetings has nothing on the showpiece of the AFL, Australia vs Ireland.
