Wily,
      Agree the figures look bad but to me it was the programming that was pathetic. I live 1k from brookie oval and to go to the SFS for an 8:30 (prob 9 ) start meant a finish after 11 and getting home on dodgy and dangerous public transport . That is far too late to have children out.
       The alternative is to drive there, but the car park at Moore Park takes at least 1 hour to exit and try to street park within 5 K and you will have a very expensive fine.
        Obviously the 8:30 start panders to ch 9s desires but is definitely not  friendly for fans living up to to 2 hours away, and common sense should have seen Brookvale used under this weeks circumstances .

It's ordinary Skyb but a few factors against them, Manly fans are known not to travel, was the 2nd game with a late start ruling out families and they were playing an interstate team from Nth Qld.

If it was played at Brookvale it would have sold out - it holds around 20k

Today MCG: Carlton vs Essendon 90,000 ( AFL )
         AAMI ( over the road ) Storm vs Knights 14,000 ( NRL )

What does that say about the two sports ?

We are used to copping shit and just repel it back onto the throwers by winning the Grand final.

I have been following them for over 50 years so have become splatter proof.

The way the draw has worked out we are certainties to reach Grand final which is better than 14 other teams.

Well put Woobia,  our comeback is that 74 of the top shows on FOX this year were Rugby League as well as the majority of  the top ten on free to air.

But lets not be to harsh on our Southern Cousins they were the Betfairites who gave me 2/1 about the SWANS making the final 8 and have paid for my Tassie holiday later this year.

It says that if you stay home and watch AFL on tv you miss out because so much of the action is off the ball. When you go to an NRL game, you miss out on so much because the tv picks up so more of the action.
 NRL rates better on tv than AFL does.

That's true Rodent.

But I will add that the traffic situation has deteriorated so badly in Sydney, that who couldn't be forgiven for not going when the game is on TV.

Public transport to the Football Stadium/SCG is non-existent. The railway to Homebush goes via the city for many of us - not a good option there.

If you want to drive, you take on the traffic and when you get there it is hopeless - especially the Footy stadium. Homebush make you jump through so many hoops to get parking that it becomes unpalatable.

Nup. Not much hope of getting people to the games in Sydney, and not too much hope going forward into the future either if you ask me.

Only if you haven't got a secret spot to park in that is less than 5 minutes walk to the gate  ;) and has no traffic when leaving  :whistle:

Got to agree, Sydney makes it damn hard to get to on public transport, I know I wouldn't go if I had to catch the train or bus  :no:

If I lived in Sydney (I live in Melbourne - but have visited Sydney enough to know sort of know my way around) and I had buckets to spend on stadiums I would build one at Wentworth park (we need a national stadium for soccer (kick the dogs out as Melbourne did from Olympic Park )) and build another stadium in Hyde Park (for union /league). Both would be handy to major train routes. We need a national soccer stadium and despite what parochial interests might say it should be in Sydney. Neither need to be as glamorous as the new Perth Stadium and an initial 50,000 capacity would do with planned expansion in the future. Lets face it these days NSW crowds only seemed to be attracted by freebies such, the mardi gras, new years eve fireworks, the start of Sydney to Hobart yacht race, free concerts on the steps of the opera house and surprisingly a walk over Sydney harbour bridge which you can do any day (imagine how many a horse race over the bridge will pull or not).  Old newspaper reports tell me 50,000 used to turn up to Randwick every Saturday but not in the last 40 years or so.  if Sydney is dreaming about big tennis the govt would need to find a billion or more for that so why waste it on tennis we you could have some decent central rectangular footy stadia.

Can someone explain the rationale for many taking their home game against Brisbane to Brisbane?

Money and Melbourne did the same too for the double header by switching their home game too.

Donít forget West Tigers has 5 different venues for their first 5 home games.

Not a Manly fan but canít blame them as more and more Sydney teams are switching at least 1 home game to anyone who can pay them.

I knew money be involved somehow.

And most clubs switch games.

BUT Many switching a home game to their opposition's home ground amazes me.
