    Only Victoria isn't at 100% capacity for sports then. All other states & territories are

    hopefully meaning some big first up crowds in rnd 1

    Broncos v Parra round 1 looks to have sold about 26k plus and is on track for about 33k. Pending results we are in for a pretty bad crowd year as people will still be apprehensive on heading out and/or may not be bothered anymore - IMO.

    seriously if fans aren't champing at the bit for some live football after a year of not having it , then IDK what needs to happen for them to appreciate it more & not take it for granted.

    I actually feel like the year off has dampened my enthusiasm for live footy.

    The habit is broken.

    Maybe it's because Storm won the comp, but I'm absolutely hanging for a live game.
    So much as so I've decided to not go away this Easter so I can watch us belt Broncos at AAMI park lol

    seriously if people aren't champing at the bit to no longer make sweeping generalised statements about attending sporting events and the many complex reasons people either do or don't attend, and instead just assume things like the above, then I don't know what needs to happen for a more nuanced, strategic approach to increasing attendance.

    I agree, dying to see footy live, even a crappy warm meat pie doesn't seem so bad. But it may still depend if that appetite is mitigated by the pricing and time scheduling of games or any other influence that has been present in the past, may de-motivate attendance. What has changed outside of the absence of crowds for much of last year that would create additional interest?

    I can’t wait to see the new rules this season. V’landys is about to announce a few others that we have been talking about to help bring back great attack that I have recommended and he has signed off on.

    I’m keen as all f**k for live footy in front of a big crowd. Hoping we get 20k plus against the Bulldogs provided it’s still 100 % capacity allowed come Round 1.
