    Yeah we got a lot closer than I thought we would. Those two conversions go through instead of hitting the upright and we're ahead with 5 minutes to go. Humble was better than I expected at 6, Docker was very impressive and Segeyaro is so great to watch. Still need to tighten up our defense up the middle, and ol Wes might need to be put out to pasture (dude has great facial hair though). When you're being smoked by Bryson Goodwin...

    The way he just tore out the ball before the Simmons try was just great. He brings a great energy to the team.

    AFL leaves other codes in the dust

    The AFL is the biggest money spinner among the football codes, raking in three times the revenue of the NRL, four times that of the A-League and six times that of rugby union, a private report says.

    Revenue generated by the sporting codes for the 2012 and 2012-13 seasons

    AFL $425 million
    NRL $135.5 million
    Cricket Australia $205.6 million
    Tennis Australia $185.7 million
    A-League $95.2 million
    Rugby Union $70.1 million

    Pretty sure he's calling you a pelican...

    Assuming that's calculated using the old NRL tv deal vs the AFL's new tv deal so it's not really an apples/apples comparison (but great fun for some ol fashioned code war shenanigans). That gap will close considerably with the new deal, and I think you'll find the improved deal will allow the NRL to close the gap in other areas due to increased market presence.

    Man, the Cowboys really do blow. Their efforts in the past couple of rounds, given their side, have been utter ****.

    Such a weird team. I look at them every year and pencil them in for a massive year and they always disappoint. They have a real problem playing away from home, and good as JT is he never seems to carry his side over the line like Johns/Locky were able to.

    I know those were revenue figures and not profit, but nevertheless, the AFL is spending more money and has more overheads than it is going to have years from now. The NRL should be a lot closer now, because the AFL has made investments which will result in more revenue in the future. Even if you think GWS and Gold Coast will not succeed, the point is they will receive more revenue in 5 years than they are now... even if they are not a raging success as a club. There is no doubt those clubs will win more games in 2016-2017 than they are now... which will result in more viewers, fans etc. Even if it is a small increase, the AFL has laid the seeds to increase revenue.

    I know Benchy rags on the NRL and says he's not surprised by those figures, but I am surprised that the NRL was THAT far behind in revenue.
