    As you know, thats because Monday night NFL is a 'we're on TV in front of the whole country by ourselves' thing...that's half the appeal of MNF, something that just wouldn't work here. And to the person that suggested having no Saturday games and putting them all on Sunday, there's no point even suggesting it because it just won't happen.

    It's not fantastic, but far from terrible.

    Didn't they say on Thursday they already had 20,000 tickets sold for Roosters v Broncos? If so they didn't do too well IMO

    It is a shame the Eels v Roosters isn't at ANZ this weekend.

    By Broncos standards, it's not great.

    Looking at the ticketek website, it will go close to selling out. Which isn't unusual when the Dragons are in town to play Brisbane.

    Tix for the Broncs game.
    Gold - Allocation exhausted
    Maroon - available
    Blue - available
    Blue unlicenced - single seats only
    White - available
    White unlicenced - single seats only
    Away supporters bay - single seatsonly

    Should be a cracker of a crowd. Generally 40% of crowd are saints when they head up north.

    How much bigger do you think the average crowd would be at ANZ if it was a rectangular stadium? Like this? I think every crowd would be at least 20-40% bigger.

    Millenium Magic Stadium - capacity 80k

    and have a look at this stadium in Barcelona... capacity 100k!! wow

    Millenium Magic stadium looks amazing. THAT is what ANZ should look like.

    It's Millenium not Millenium Magic :) Millenium Magic is (was) a RL event which has moved to Murrayfield in Scotland (now known as Murrayfield Magic or the Magic Weekend). Lovely stadium though.

    Whilst I agree millenium looks good...so does ANZ when it's full. Show me millenium with 12,000 in it for a fair comparison!!

    Yep Cardiff Millenium is the best ground for Soccer,Rugby Union and Rugby League but wanting 100k stadiums is just to big.

    The upper tiers of Camp Nou look downright dangerous. If you bend over to pick up your pie you could easily find yourself tumbling down onto the field.

    I've been there, and they look worse than they actually are... But you do need binoculars up there and a very good eye sight to spot the ball! :lol:

    Everything looks a lot closer judging by that pic of Millenium, especially in the upper levels. Paying for seats in the upper sections of ANZ is a complete waste and I'll never do it again. Dead atmosphere, even for an origin decider, and you spend the whole time watching the screen.

    Posted by RL1908 in the TV Ratings thread, but I figure it has some relevance here also.

    http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/sport/monday-nights-costly-for-brisbane/story-e6frg7mf-1225897728486

    So should clubs receive more than $40k for having a Monday game?

    Canterbury vs Souths - 23K
    Penrith vs nth Qld - 12K (possibly being optimistic)
    Parra vs Easts - 20K
    Wests vs Cronulla - 16K
    Storm vs Canberra - 12K
    Warriors vs Titans - 18K (NZ deserves a big crowd)
    Broncos vs Dragons - 50K
    Newcastle vs Manly - 12K
