Adelaide vs GWS ( local vs interstate team ) 52,000 + ( ground capacity 53,500 )
Richmond vs Geelong ( two Vic teams ) 96,000 + ( ground capacity 100,000 )
Port Adelaide vs West Coast and Sydney Swans vs Essendon ( locals vs interstate teams ) ????
Roosters vs Broncos ( local vs interstate team ) 21,000 + ( ground capacity 45,000 )
Sea Eagles vs Panthers ( two Sydney teams ) ??????
Melbourne Storm vs Parramatta and Sharks vs Cowboys ( locals vs interstate teams ) ???
In this the first week of the finals both codes have one game between local teams and three games in which locals play interstate teams, so comparative attendances can and will be drawn
148,000 out of a possible 153,500 ( 96.4 % ) have attended two AFL matches whilst in the one NFL game played to date only 21,000 out of a possible 45,000 ( 46.6 % ) have attended.
Melbourne Storm play today and you can bet that AAMI Park will be filled with more than 14,000 ( 46.6% ).of its 30,000 capacity and that the SCG will be filled with more than 18.600 ( 46.6 % ) to watch the Swans game
What's wrong with the NRL or are just Sydney people only interested in watching boats race on the Harbour or attending the Mardi Gras ?
