GF, Friday night footy dominates TV ratings - AFL.com.au
Correct me if I am wrong as I am only going on memory but weren't all of those highest rating games close, see-sawing battles where anybody could win until late in the fourth quarter?

I think this may skew the highest ratings stats. If my Friday night habits are any guide, I think fans of all teams, all over the country may not all sit down to watch the Friday night game but they do monitor the scores through mobile devices, social media, real-life contact with real people or other methods.

If a good game is brewing, we switch on? If one-sided we don't bother?

Prime-time games for the Swans last year were nail-bitingly close, weren't they (again, from memory)?
