Re: Just general surfing stuff

I have. The broadcasters pay the NRL lots of coin for less viewers. And you'd say the stats are real. Surfing is an unrelatable highly niche sport. An insular sport that is hierarchical in the extreme. The best you could say is that it's a fiefdom with flawed kings surrounded jesters and mindless vi...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Seriously though watching 5- 10 full days of coverage for an hour of gold is pretty boring for the non surfer. Isn't the point to engage the non surfers. It's cheap, put the thing of rotation every second night on Fox etc.
