    Rabbitohs at 23,017. Should easily get to their goal of 25,000 with their first home game 7 days away.

    If Souths maintain form and be finals bound this year and next, I wouldn't be surprised if they were to reach 30k. Cowboys should increase throughout the season providing they maintain winning form, beating the Storm can help. :D

    Cows only 431 off from matching last year total should be easily recouped and surpassed eventually if the Cows meet expectations.

    Fair enough, I'll take your word.

    The totals would obviously include 3/6/9 game memberships that get sold later on in the season so I gather you guys must sell a few of those.

    I read that piece.
    I almost choked on my Corn Flakes when I read it.
    In fact, I had to read it 3 times to make sure I understood what she was saying. She couldn't have been further from the truth. Helps when you're married to a News Ltd exec...you can say anything and be assured of keeping your job.

    And the typical band wagon jumper she is, after condemning League, and praising the Swans....she goes on to admit she's now on the Wanderers bandwagon!!

    A disgusting piece of "journalism"!

    But,but,but she's "A league tragic since her early days in Brisbane, she's now a fearless columnist."... Sorry, just threw up in my mouth a little after quoting that.

    Going well. I just hope we can scrape a few wins together to keep the 18k we have!

    Has anyone written to Rebecca Wilson to have a piece of her after that article about the Roosters memberships?

    She more than halved our member numbers and wrote a piece about us not being able to put bums on seats for the Souths game when there were more Roosters supporters at the game than Souths fans.

    I decided to write to her - email address [email protected]

    Dear Ms Wilson

    I read your article in the newspapers this weekend regarding membership numbers for the Sydney Roosters
    You quoted the club as having 5,000 members – which is more than inaccurate – it is a downright fabrication.

    The Sydney Roosters have in excess of 11,000 members for the 2013 season

    On top of this the Sydney Roosters also have a strong supporter base amongst SCG Trust members, of which there were a few thousand at the game against Souths last Thursday

    I was attending the game at Allianz and unlike last season where Souths fans outnumbered us at our own ground, we outnumbered Souths supporters and by some margin.
    I haven’t seen that many Roosters fans proudly wearing our colours since Brad Fittler was our captain.

    Of the 35,000 people at the stadium, my estimate was that 20,000 of them were supporting the Sydney Roosters.

    Hardly the efforts of a team with no supporters that can’t put bums on seats. I expect a public apology will be forthcoming.

    Kind regards

    Good on you mate, but journos like manbearpig get away with spouting bullshit every day - it's their job.

    Well done Lamb.

    I will write too.

    There will no doubt be a retraction next Sunday.

    Yeah they have already said they will write a retraction - Ted Hillier from our marketing team got into them about it.

    Apparently we're over 11,500...anyone got a recent update?

    I sent her an e-mail ,immediately after my initial post about here blatant error.Sounds like the D.T. has been inundated with complaints.
    BTW she stated there would be tens of thousands of fans at the Swan's fan day.3,500 turned up.Tens of thousands ROFL.

    You are only the 2nd person to make this claim. The other was Bunniesman, think about that.

    Yeh the Souths turnout was actually pretty average for a round 1 game, they had really good support in the corner with about 3 or 4 bays but the rest of the crowd was definitely dominated by Roosters supporters with some Souths fans scattered around.

    I would have said we had the majority quite comfortably. Surprised some people saw it the other way.
