    FFS. 21k for a regular round 3 fixture. Good crowd.

    Unless we get 30k plus, ppl will always complain for games like this. Its insane. Look at the history of league crowds.......we're doing pretty fing good.

    20000-30000 crowd is great for the SFS but crap for the ANZ.

    only 13k for the dragqueens? not spectacular, but if they can get this sort of crowd for a team like the cowboys then it's not too bad

    Both the tiges and eels have had three marquee games to start the year. RL fans don't do week in week out back ups. Poor scheduling

    Brisbane had 3 of their biggest crowds last year in the first 4 rounds. R1 Cowboys, R2 Melbourne and R4 Dragons.

    Didn't seem to hurt them.

    A lot of the Sydney blockbusters have been wasted early in the season.

    Why don't Sydneysiders turn up to live sport?

    First 3 crowds from the MCG this weekend:

    Richmond v Carlton 72,010
    Geelong v Essendon 57,772
    Melbourne v Hawthorn 45,615

    Why can't say a Bulldogs v Parra blockbuster game at ANZ draw 50k+ ? Or Wests v Souths at SFS 40k? NRL need to get away from the small stadiums and start attracting some decent crowds.

    Small stadiums aren't the problem. Hasn't been a sellout all year.
