    Getting in early just to beat Timtam to posting the thread.

    Also because games with actual crowds will be starting soon.

    Also to post this:

    There's actually been two under 10k in the last decade but still, for a team that success has eluded for so long to have consistently good crowds is pretty damn impressive

    Knights drew 0 against Melbourne the other day. NRL is dying.

    Technically Melbourne drew 0 against the Knights. Clearly Melbourne has been a gigantic failure. Time to move them to Perth

    Pretty sure Timmah's thread title is usually Crowd Watch followed by the year.

    Bring back Timmah.

    I'm actually incorrect.

    Still, bring back Timmah.

    I predict crowds will break the 16k average for the first time since 2012.

    Well might as well start out with some optimism ......

    Hopefully the cheap ANZ tickets help to boost the average this year. I think over the next 4-5 years as we get new stadiums the average will steadily increase. Hopefully league starts seeing some real growth again leading up to the next TV deal where we'll see expansion finally happen. Feeling optimistic.

    Waiting for the heavy rain at the start of the season to dampen everyone's enthusiasm.

    We're all about the records, just like Cam Smithler.

    I think that’s very optimistic for Perth! Hope I’m wrong but I’d be surprised if it’s not 30-35k, not seen any general media advertising for it yet.

    The games are still four weeks away. I am sure the NRL has a strategy in place for advertising.
