    theyre pretty much all the other 40K ,
    Its not good enough that this game hasn't sold out very , very quickly let alone not at all. How can this not be massive for Penrith & the area, 17 years since their last , who knows how long til their next?

    Easy to say this behind a keyboard. So I take it you are going to the game?

    this will be the first one at ANZ I will miss , because I mistakenly thought itd be too hard to get tickets in a 40K capacity & I should give my seat up for the fans of the clubs in it.

    LOL

    This was always going to be a super tough sell.

    The Storm, whose fans can't even make it to Sydney, vs the local team with by far the worst travelling fan base in NSW.

    I'ts been a great effort just to hit 40k tbh.

    There is still a plague ongoing guys.

    I haven't missed a Grand Final if I have been living in Australia for nearly 2 decades (2004 I think was the last?) And I will be f**ked if I am going to get packed in like a sardine to get to Homebush.

    Also, plenty of people probably reckon not spending a few hundy on tickets right now might be prudent what with the upcoming jobpocalypse.

    We travel well enough just have a small fanbase. Especially when a lot of those fans we have West of the Blue Mountains have work the next day.

    Why would neutrals pay $180 to come when in 2 weeks they can come to Origin

    All valid points. Those that expected it to be an easy sell are crazy.

    30k will still look good on TV and on a World scale to finish the season with such a crowd is a huge achievement

    I guess Melbournians can't make it up so we sent our weather instead

    usually this would be a big bonus for us but the teams been up in sunny qld all year

    don't let your smug get the better of you, regardless it'll be a 50/50 game, expecting a close Melbourne victory
