Not sure if they used it or not

but a lot of clubs borrowed money from banks and the afl acted as a guarantor

covid messed up the afls finances and they didnt take their medicine like we did

this year they will get more tv money but they still are in a hole financially and will be for a while

hopefully vlandys keeps buying more assets for the long term

the goal should be 1 billion in assets for the nrl

AFL buy a billion dollar stadium, NRL buy a pub lol

to keep this thread on topic, the interesting bits in here for the next deal are the comments about negotiations starting for next deal soon and then tricks up our sleeve whatever that means.
Sounds like he is buying time. Also I got the impression he could renegotiate current terms of the existing deal but seems like all hot air to me.

It does seem unlikely youd start to negotiate a deal for 6 years time before the new deal has even started!

what they should be doing this week is getting on the phone to the two losing afl bidders and starting discussions about them looking to buy the rights from 2026. Then going to fox after those discussions and letting know they are at risk.

I think we can see that to get max value out of the next deal we need perth asap and a plan for Adelaide. Then we need to carve the rights up offering soo as a stand alone package. Then we need to go to market with it and create competition. Only way we will get what the game is worth.
You think the Giants and the Suns are basket cases, theyll look like Manchester United compared to a Perth/Adelaide rugby league team lol.

Your 10k crowds bother us lol, embarrassing comes to mind, you build a massive Olympic stadium and you need the AFL to fill it lol.
when has AFL ever filled Homebush? lol NRL at least sells out a GF and state of origin once a year

Dont engage the trolls mate. I have never really understood the type of person that would go on an opposing forum (fumbleball or NRL) just to troll. Like seriously have they not got anything to do with their time

I respect the balls on the afl. Like youve got a product where the ratings are down especially in their so called growth markets

on pay tv they are getting destroyed

yet they still pretend like its a premium product that networks are desperate to secure

fake it till you make it

I wonder what other revenue they will include this time in the deal like they included digital last time

How the AFL got $642M is beyond me

I have never understood the need for RL fans to constantly compare themselves with the Countries premier sport, the AFL get more because the AFL is worth more, NRL gets less because the NRL is worth less, how many times have the AFL received more for their rights now? there is no conspiracy - the deal you guys got is a very good one for your code, why not concentrate on the positives instead of whinging all the time?

Rubbish, they will be a basket case like the the AFLs new expansion teams, question is will the NRL be in it for the long haul? time will tell, we know the AFL are.

The AFL know its going to take generations for teams to prosper and they have the money to wait.
