    Channel 9 bought it, and NFI how to use it.

    Like giving a drunk a Lego Set and asking him to build the Eiffel Tower.

    The Back Page is an absolute example of that kind of work.

    You can count on any "Good" NRL Story getting an "Its like in the AFL where..." response from Kelli Underwood. And if (on a rare occasion) there's a Bad AFL Story, the NRL is somehow brought into it.

    "Bad" NRL Stories - they sink the slipper... No comparisons.

    On the footy show and they cross to Breen to talk about the golf. Ch9 may as well extend sports sunday for another 2 hours.

    It's been an unwatchable AFL love-in since they changed the format from Gibbo and 12th man guy.

    Last Sunday Offsiders, Kelly Underdaks in a discussion on the NRL, couldn't contain herself but to bring in the AFL.

    Talking about teams and how they are going,she stated with the usual delighted smirk, the 3 Qld NRL sides have only one a game each ,whereas the Qld AFL sides have won more.

    WTF has the Sunburns and the Plate Lickers wins, got to do with NRL teams' position on the NRL ladder.
    I just can't imagine an NRL TV commentator ,when discussing the NRL teams ladder positions ,banging on where a AFL team from Sydney is down the ladder by comparison.
    She does similar things on the Slack Page.

    It's about individual sports, not a platform to flog AFL propaganda,

    Craddock is a part time AFL flog too. And married into it as well.

    What’s wins got to do with anything. Storm are undefeated, NRL is clearly dominating Victoria in 2019.

    Sydney NRL teams have won a lot more games than the Sydney AFL teams this year.

    But the Gnats who play at Stone Motherless Stadium are performing wonders, and this AFL hype will be noted on the Slack Page.
    AFL don't need to have an expensive marketing dept.
    The(OUR LOL) ABC ,Ch9 and the Back Page sycophants do the job for them, at no cost.
