    They could bring back Monday Night Football. Foxtel loved the Monday game.
    TBoon's idea has merit. Western Tigers. But if it doesn't happen, and it most likely won't, then Perth can be the 20th licence.
    They cost a fortune to run. Players had to be uprooted from their families. Establishing a junior base in Adelaide would be an astronomical challenge. Getting Perth's small junior base in line with Queensland and NSW will take time and money that the NRL does not have.
    The Western Force had around 10,000 or less loyal fans. Glory and Reds same story. My guess is the Pirates will most likely average between 9,000 and 12,000 if they're also rans like the Force and Reds, but could maybe get up to 15,000 if they have a golden run like the Storm.

    Was the Storm vs Broncs game on the main channel televised on a night when no fumbleball was played?

    Broncos are the Storm's biggest rival.

    Where are you getting your info?

    Thurs 04 June
    Brissie vs Syd

    Sydney 211,000
    Brissie 131,000

    https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/06/thursday-4-june-2020.html

    Thur 11 June
    Manly vs Brissie

    Sydney 195,000
    Brissie 182,000

    https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/06/thursday-11-june-2020.html

    Thurs 18 June
    Newy vs Brissie

    Sydney 163,000
    Brissie 138,000

    https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/06/thursday-18-june-2020.html

    Brissie took a bigger hit than Sydney after their 59-0 pummelling. That game drew above ave in Syd. Manly game vs Brissie drew ave in Syd. The only real drop off in Syd was for the Newy vs Brissie game. Maybe they don't like Newy?

    We now know Brissie Donks has 135k hardcore fans who will watch when their team sucks, and an extra 40k to 50k who tune in when they are competitive.

    The comparison is in the Sydney audiences of games not involving Broncos v ones that do. Less people tune in from Sydney when Broncos are playing.
