Totally agree those are very wooly indeed. Shame both codes have become very clandestine about playing numbers, AFL moving to participation, which NRL followed then abandoned all together giving any data.hmmmmm
lets see ....
so this football fan loving dork has highlighted in bold & screamed from the highest mountain ....that fumbles & misses has double the participation rates of RL & RU combined in the ACT using it i assume as some kind of pointer to the popularity of the game in Canberra
what this wanker has done tho , is put the entire number of fumbleball particpation up against just the senior playing numbers for well, RL at least & probably union too.
there are 5000 RL players in the ACT all ages , there are 25 senior & more then 200 junior teams alone , I mean are we seriously suggesting theres 5 players per team lol ????) , the District has over 6500 players 300 teams & when you include touch & tag that number is closer to 15000 players in the Canberra area.
Strangely , he hasn't drawn any conclusions on wether soccer's 20000 ACT participants makes it the most popular sport in the territory & far more popular then his beloved vicky kicky .. I wonder why?
straight away ... Houston we have a problem.
The figures are flawed , geared & as I alluded to part of narrative from a biased afl loving clown.
