lolOn an unrelated note, I’m currently trying to source as much orange clothing as possible.
Giants members get a 2nd chance this afternoon.Trying to work out how many Giants fans took up tickets during the ballot.
On the Ticketek page there are 67 pages of successful Richmond applications (17000) and 37 pages of unsuccessful applications (potentially 10000)
On the Giants page there were 27 pages of successful applications (6,800?) and no unsuccessful applications.
I understand Richmond / GWS could run a second ballot for tickets but wouldn’t it be most fair to just allocate the unused tickets to the Richmond members that missed out (and not bother with a second or potentially third ballot?)
YepGiants members get a 2nd chance this afternoon.
I would say any after that will go to Tigers members.
That's a great crowd for a second level competition. Compares well to the WAFL GF crowd of 18,914 and to the somewhat disappointing 13,165 for Richmond v Williamstown in the VFL.39,105 at the SANFL Grand Final.
Port Adelaide v Glenelg is / was a big rivalry in South Australia wasn't it?That's a great crowd for a second level competition. Compares well to the WAFL GF crowd of 18,914 and to the somewhat disappointing 13,165 for Richmond v Williamstown in the VFL.
Ratings of over 1.8 million - including FTA of 114,000 in Sydney (so much for "no-one there cares about GWS) for the Saturday arvo/evening PF was also very good.
The SANFL 10 team competition always tried to maximize attendances thus it played 22 rounds instead of 18. It always wanted 3 matchups a year between Port/Norwood/Sturt/Glenelg as they were comfortably the best supported clubs, plus clubs like port would play 13 home matches and other clubs like Woodville would only have 8. WAFL had a more spread of support with all clubs probably bar subiaco averaging near or above 10,000 for there home games.I know that historically the SANFL routinely got bigger crowds than the WAFL. Then again, Adelaide used to be bigger than Perth. Port Adelaide was, of course, the biggest and most successful club of them all.
