    On top of the grant money for both clubs its cost Vicky Kicky house $200 mill for both clubs over 5 years and they are both still giving out free tickets like confetti.
    Like i said in a earlier post every time i put $60 or more petrol in my car i get 2 free tickets to the next midgets home game, and like i have said before you would have to be a fool to pay to watch the midgets with all the freebies given out for their home game.
    I'm proud to say that i bin the tickets like a vast majority of people here do n Blacktown

    You bring up a good point!

    Their was a 12 school private school competition that existed in Brisbane from 1928 to 1938.

    This brings the supposition that rugby league can and has been played in private schools. The people of NSW need to see this eventuate in this state for rugby league as it can and should occur!

    This sport should not be an outcast especially given its real world popularity. At that moment this "policy" of NSW private schools reeks of bigotry!

    Fantastic ratings though I was hoping we would push closer to 4 million, the result probably didn't help. Yet again shows the strength of league that we can have 3 matches in the middle of our season that rate like GF's.

    On a different note did the Aus open final rate much higher this year? I know it used to have monster ratings but in recent years I didn't think it rated so highly. I'm assuming it was the hype around Federer being there, tennis will miss his presence.

    Edit: what were the ratings for the other main capital cities. A quick hit of math in my head says over 600K between the 3 which seems pretty good.

    It will be the most watched sports program on Australian TV this, not unless another sport fudges its viewing figures

    How does the ratings for Origin 3 compare to games played in the past? With all the prematch hype this game received it must be up there.

    Fantastic work from Adelaide, beating Perth despite having a smaller population.
    Looks like the recent game in the City of Churches has really stoked the interest of the locals in RL.

    Don't have to take them on, just provide an alternative for them to AFL. I travel a bit for work and there is surprisingly a lot of casual interest for League in these cities. I was talking to a guy from Perth recently who follows the Eagles religiously but was also a big fan of the Cowboys and was asking me about them and also what suncorp stadium is like.

    Exactly traditionally it's always been the local media in cahoots with the AFL/VFL/SANFL (take your pick) that has frozen any rival sports out. It's only in the last 20-25 years Melbourne, Adelaide etc have matured as sporting cities. Thankfully people 30 or under have interest in other codes outside Ausie Rules.

    Better time zone in Adelaide, it would be a 6pm kick-off in Perth.

    7pm by time I was home and watching it, I guess if you are a more casual viewer you'd likely be turning on the tv around 6:30-7pm. Stilll given most afl games get sub 150kmaudience in Perth it stacks up ok.
