I have to admit I had a laugh this morning when reading the Herald Sun. I saw a little, corner page ad for the VFL Grand Final on Friday, blink and you'll miss it sort of thing it was, tucked in the corner of the page. Then I flick back a few more pages and see a FULL PAGE ad from the Melbourne Storm promoting their Prelim Final on Saturday night.
It just highlighted the contrast between how AFL Vic do it, and how others promote themselves. Everything AFL Vic does is on the cheap.
Make no mistake, the NRL game on Saturday will eat into the VFL's crowd, very few people will dip into the pocket for both games.
