    I still remember it, I’ve always played footy, my family are right into it, we would have massive parties on origin time with heaps of people getting blind out at our farm. It was definitely bigger back then no doubt. My point is the whole game has subsided equally not just origin. In my 37-38 short years I have seen a huge change from when I got my first non farm related job at 17 when all the blokes would wear footy shorts to work and talk footy all day to people wearing Lebron James singlets now. If anything imo origin is the only thing that even the casuals watch whereas normal NRL doesn’t have anywhere near the same tribalism it used to. I obviously still love it or I wouldn’t be a member of this forum but in general kids just aren’t playing it anymore.

    No need to be a smartarse mate, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just because someone has a difference of opinion to you doesn’t mean they are wrong.

    Young guys trying to save the world, old blokes stuck in their ways and not open to opinions. It takes all types mate.

    It was just a joke 30-something.

    In my 30s, I thought I knew everything. It wasn't until my 40s that I realised I knew Jack Schitt and his extended family.

    Problem is that it’s not debatable mate. Origin has a larger viewership than ever besides this year for obvious reasons. It fluctuates year to year but is trending upwards. 2016 I believe was the biggest ever. The fact is people don’t go to the pubs as much as they used to because people don’t have as much disposable income as in the past and are also working more hours along with needing two breadwinners to survive. On top of this the recent research into brain injury is not helping junior participation. All this aside origin is without a doubt the NRL’s biggest blue chip product. These are all facts backed by data not anecdotal evidence of the passion experienced in the 80s or my apprentices sporting choices.

    Sorry..are you saying people in the 80's and 90's had more idispensable ncome.??...beg to differ
    There has never been any more spending than what the 20's and 30's a doing in the past 20 years than ever before..
    Everything is throw away and has to be new and lets not talk about the gadgets and toys, cars and ink...
    And..how many younger people have climbed up the ladder lot quicker and achieve big size of incomes.
    And many these days own their own business
    A lot (not all) need 2 incomes only to afford their lifestyle it seems
    I dont know the facts but would like to see how ypou measure that

    Opinions vary, but it matters little.
