    Yeah mate that is what the fb page said a few hours ago although not sure how they come up with the statistic i.e. could be total transactions as opposed to total tickets, who knows.

    Either way i think we are headed for something special on saturday. A full SFS with pretty close to a 50/50 split.

    Hopefully the game lives up to the occasion.

    TBH i'm glad it's a prelim. I don't think I could emotionally handle a Souths vs Roosters GF.

    Yep, same on Friday night, clear distinction between Sharks and Panthers. I know they don’t expect many, but I hate how Storm have the Sharks shunted away in a corner this week, only difference from normal H&A is there were 4 bays instead of 1

    MCG is a lot harder as there are th AFL and MCC members sections but on Friday night behind the goals between those 2 is all Collingwood supporter bays which should be good

    Was funny last week with just 3 rows behind 1 goal orange, rest of ground black and white

    Got my tickets to the Melbourne Sharks game online yesterday.

    Can't give you a PAX as they haven't been "delivered" yet???

    Are they really expecting scalping to occur?

    Something I've noticed is that the Storm are usually really good with marketing and promotion for games, usually with plenty of emails and social media posts with reasons to go such as any milestone's, pre-game stuff, etc

    But for the finals there has been a lot less. Its Slater's final game in Melbourne and possibly his last game ever, Hoffy's too if he plays, but I think It's hardly been mentioned.

    I guess that's because it's the NRLs job to market the finals and not the individual clubs

    Was the same at last years prelim. Handful of rows directly behind the goal, and one other bay similar. 94,000 and the best estimate is they brought about 3k that night. Joke of a ‘club’

    With AAMI on Friday, it’s not inconsistent with what they always do. always the sideline bays in line with the in goal. Little bit different. 90% of the crowd will be supporting Melbourne. Still looks great, the one that stands out to me was the year the Cowboys beat em. We were sideline in the western stand, Cowboys had the away bay at the Eastern river end that night. They were going ballistic during the second half, almost everyone of them seemed to have a flag heaps of noise. May not have shown up on tv but inside the ground it looked fantastic.

    LOL and of course they're not biased at all on the Roosters facebook page.

    All and all I wouldn't mind if that was true and the stadium was packed to capacity :) the more the better.

    I don't say this often but this game deserves a sellout, last ever game at the SFS in it's current state and what a game it will be. I remember going to both Rabbitohs and Roosters home games there as a kid in the late 1980's early 1990's before we developed this good old fashioned rivalry over the last 15 years or so LOL

    Mate I don't know how old you are but for those old enough to remember this, traditionally Rabbitohs and Roosters fans never really hated each other, in fact supporters from both sides actually supported the other side when their own team was out. The whole book of feuds thing only developed in the last 15 years or so and i think it's good for the game :)

    Anyway regardless of what the real figures are, there will be upwards of 25K Souths supporters there and you guys traditionally turn up to the game against us at the SFS which is good.

    You guys are generally really disappointing when the game is played at ANZ but traditionally you do turn up in decent numbers against us at the SFS.

    On your ticketek account up the top of the home page you should see recent orders and the tickets are there too...

    I suspect the ratings would get ridiculously in favour of the league game that weekend
