Great job by the Panthers today.
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.
Plus we all know AFL is ****. At least its not as bad as Soccer.
lol if anyone thinks the gap between AFL and NRL will decrease.

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.
LOL @ reading those comments in the article on the SMH. ****s joking how Australia is the best at playing AFL in the world.
