Grand Final Ratings
Green Guide today: Before the Game 302,000 viewers VFL Grand Final 166,000 viewers Doesnt list Ch 9 or Ch 7. But 166,000 is poor, I think it did almost as good on a Sunday arvo.

Melbourne Storm's Preliminary Final was on that night too, but I don't know how that would affect things :? .

As I have said before for the VFL in its current form cannot compete with the AFL GF so the only way to get a decent crowd and TV ratings for the VFL GF is to play it a week AFTER the AFL when it has the market to itself.The other distraction in Melbourne that can take the crowd away is the Royal Show and that is over by then.
