    Could the eels be closing in on 30k after last season? If they have a fast start on the field could get close.

    I was in York and a bloke passed me on the City walls wearing a Dragons cap
    I stopped for a chat and it turns out he was English.

    When I revealed I was a Roosters fan his wife threatened to throw me off the City walls.

    I think she were joking (though she did look scarier than him)

    Summation: Dragons have an international fan base too - So do the Roosters - an international hatred
    Not sure how many members that will get us though?

    Maybe the problem with souths is that all their Australian members are pets.

    I know they had an avg season but to drop to the lowest crowd avg in the NRL last year was some fall from grace! It is quite possible that they have less than 10k Sydney members and 10k around the rest of the country tbf. I heard they have around 4-5k WA members.

    They start winning and they’ll get crowds back
    It’s not f**king rocket science.

    We had the worst draw last year with barely any family friendly time slots....

    It was a shocker.....

    Should improve next year but still only have 1 Sunday day game......

    We have four 5:30 Saturday games though and our Good Friday blockbuster plus double header the week before.......

    You'll see changes next season due to us getting a fair go as I said which we hadn't got recently...

    You think it's all on the draw and not at all to do with the fact that after the premiership you went back to playing rubbish football?

    Also I dare say the fact GI missed the whole season played a part - big name players missing is always going to impact interest.

    Ah I see, it is ok for souffs to count Good Friday and a home game in another state but not ok for the roosters to count ANZAC Day and the Adelaide Fixture

    We only have Good Friday as an official home fixture every second year....

    No, every second year also, one year its the Roosters home game, the following year it is the Dragons home game.

    No, it isn't and no one ever bags the dragons for counting it in their home average and nor should they.

    Happy to be corrected but isn't anyone who buys a ticket to the Perth game a 'member'?

    No, but 2 of the four clubs playing so far have released a WA membership which includes a game ticket.
