    Jesus and this was meant to be the bumper crowds year for the NRL.
    Crowds wise the AFL must be laughing at us and the international Soccer lot must be thinking what the big deal with the NRL.

    Yet you take the travelling Knights and Manly out of the equation and you are probably left with friends and loved ones.

    Perth does better with barely any travelling fans.


    BTW, The only AFL team in NSW drew 31k tonight.

    Th only Super 15 team in NSW drew 20k.

    Kicking off at 8.35pm is a great idea.

    on a positive note the swans only got 31,330. poor considering their past crowds at ANZ

    It seems a good days weather on the GC turns people off going to the footy, raiders not exactly a big draw though

    That 31k is still better than what we get in Melbourne.
    Comparable to Broncos even.

    Sydney's crowds for all Football codes are pretty dire sometimes.
    I think there should be some ethnic cleansing of the Football codes in Sydney.

    Who knows the Storm may get that much on Good Friday against the Dragons if the game is promoted well enough.

    They'll probably get between 20-30k for the following home game too.

    Gold Coast fans did themselves a favour by staying away from that game. Raiders didn't really put up a fight, they seemed to hate the ball a lot though.

    What's with all the 8:40pm games?

    They just destroy crowds.

    Dont know about that. I wont be there as i'll be away for the weekend and im sure i wont be alone. Havent heard a thing about the game in the media either. I'd say 25k would be a good crowd.

    this is where Perth could add real value come 2013. You could have a live 8.30pm or even 9pm Sydney time game and it would be a 5.30pm or 6pm kick off here which wouldn't killl the crowd.

    I am hoping the Storm will boost crowd numbers with the new stadium, but we have 3 games at Etihad to deal with first.

    I hope we get some sort of promotion during this week, so far absolutely nothing and I agree with 25,000 being a good crowd.
    I'll be at the game, but have a couple of friends who will be at mass instead and can't attend.

    Besides at 2.10 pm game is a stupid idea, it will keep people away. A night game would have been a much better idea.

    21,318 for Parra/Wests
    13,267 for Saints
    11,521 on the GC
    11,024 at CUA stadium
    12,138 for the Sea Eagles

    apart from the first one they're all pretty average

    lets see Bullscum/Easts and Broncos/Warriors get some good crowds today!!!

    Neither am I. Half the crowd anywhere else would have half the members here demanding a new team, but unless Bluetongue sells out every week for whatever random combination of teams go up there then a CC team has no hope.

    And what stupid logic lies behind that? If Warriors v NQ jag 15 k, how does that prove support for the Bears? By that logic, last years prelim final between Parra and Canterbury would mean a future Homebush side would have heaps of fans!

    You decided you didn't want to go because you didn't like Singo. Not because of work commitments, or you didn't like either side, or it's too far for you, or any other reasonable excuse. You don't like Singo. End of story.

    Pathetic.

    Obviously, not just about Singo, but feel free to pick and choose what bits you feel like reading.

    If the Dogs and Souths both lose this Round the Easter Monday crowd which usually draws good numbers could be a real let down.

    I doubt it, they've been in rubbish form before and still managed 20k - 2008 from memory.
