Although there is no doubt that Aussie rules will never be a better game than rugby league, in terms of administration and tradition, they have it all over us. Yesterday's grand final was a great event....played during the day (when it should be) at 2:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Our grand final is played at night because Ch 9 says it's better for them. The AFL basically tells the broadcaster to get stuffed.....its on when its on and if you don't like it, you can shove it. They also don't have Monday night football shoved down their throats....again the brainchild of the broadcaster. They have the core of Victorian sides as well as 2 sides in Queensland, NSW, SA, and WA........all of which stand on their own two feet financially. Not to mention they get decent crowds to regular season games in these states (even though SA and WA are AFL territories). We have the Melbourne Storm.....propped up and planted in a state where no one gives a toss. They even got a fantastic stadium thrown in. And while holding fast to their traditions, they still got the billion the NRL managed to get....plus more. Andrew Demetriou must be one hell of a CEO.
