Netballers must be spewing.

Basketballers too

Both the Diamonds and the Opals are world class teams yet their exposure is bare bones in comparison to AFLW

 

Does that mean there is something lacking with their governing bodies?

Not sure about that Frank, but obviously having the AFL behind you has its benefits.

 

Footy has always been a much bigger business than the other two sports in question and can bring a lot more resources to bear

Wait a little bit before assessing viewing and attendance numbers at AFLW - it will drop a bit once the hype starts to move into the past

Pretty sure it already has to some extent, Melbourne & Collingwood only got about 7000 last weekend and that was at Princes Park where they had 25000 for the first game.

I reckon the AFL have got to prop it up for at least another season or two with lots of $$$, and by continuing to make it free for the footy loving public, otherwise it will die an untimely death I reckon.

I believe so Georgey.

 

I wonder what effect charging people would do for the crowds and how many would drop off?

 

Ideally they should maintain it as a curtain raiser I reckon (rather than a stand alone game) so that enough people may get to see it, and think it good enough to attend in it's own right. It's still got to find it's legs I believe, and the longer the AFL support it, the better it will be able to stand alone in the future.
