    While I do agree this stuff should be done behind closed doors.
    First off...not a Panthers supporter.
    I can't really foresee a time when Penrith will be among the best attended clubs in the NRL, as their population and stadium are not that high.
    I didn't realise you meant on average your original comment said
    "might be better spending his time working on out getting more than 14k along to a Penrith game"- which on first view indicates penrith haven't got more than 14k to a game, which they have, the last two matches in fact.

    Haha

    Don't worry about Perth Red
    Taking shots at all clubs crowds is all he has in life.

    Perth fans only go for winners.

    I'd love to see how the Scorchers go if they strung together a few Thunder-esque seasons.

    Their basketball team wins in a comp where no one gives a f**k.

    The Force and the Glory are great barometers for NRL in Perth. Win...the house is full. Lose...end up in Melbourne.

    Beau Ryan said on the footy show last night that the ANZAC game between the Roosters and Dragons is a near sell out. He also said Dragons fans are outselling the Roosters fans 3:1.

    This game is part of our member package though so that is ~14k tickets there.

    No idea how many SFS members there are.

    So it isn't surprising that the public allotment of tickets are being snapped up by dragons fans.

    Hate when they do this. How often do you see talk of a sellout or ear sellout only to end up with a disappointing crowd. Thankfully in this case I think it's going to sellout anyway.

    Saints fans always show up in big numbers but to be fair it's our home game so ticketed Roosters members don't need to buy tix so makes sense saints are buying more.

    Channel 9 is reporting that Tuesday night's ANZAC Day clash between the Roosters & Dragons may be the HIGHEST EVER CROWD at that venue from when it was renovated. Would be a massive achievement by the Dragons fans who are out-selling the Roosters fans 3:1.

    well done canberra, great crowd, great atmosphere, great game.
    Then we go to an empty anz where it is a stark contrast to the Canberra game.

    Breaking news, winning teams get bigger crowds. Thanks for the insight Einstein!

    You're not quite understanding the concept of a membership are you?

    This is why Souths were kicked out to begin with. Tiny fan base who don't go to games.
