Lol 77k????

They wish! They only got 72,504. Previous year we go 94,258 against the GWS. But that's ok, according to a certain magpie serial idiot there were 20,000 neutrals to our game so in fact Collingwood actually got the bigger crowd. LOL go figure.
I went to that match also and talked to a Lions and Crows fan in the outer.

No atmosphere at all and the umpires went down low on the Umpies.

Magpie fans don’t stand like we do.

GoPies is dumb. He compared the pies successful era 2002-2012 to ours and they obviously got the biggest crowds so they’re bigger. Give us 5 more minutes of success so we can get our crowds too you moron :cool:
Btw he listens to Madonna lol
wish we had a fixture like colonwoods this year. would dwarf their attendance. maybe we should loose a grand final too

another friday night tonight :drunk:

Geez, even if that was true... imagine being able to attract 20,000 neutrals to a game they had no interest in.

thats why Orion is my favourite!

Actually part of that statement is not true.... But it's a great instrumental (dare I say prog piece) by Metallica, and it's the one that hooked me in all those years ago. Master of Puppets....Metallica's best for mine.

What about Prog metal? Where does that sit?
Reminds me of the Judean People's Front vs the People's front of Judea!!

Lars is not the best drummer in the World but a very smart businessman,pretty much made Metallica famous.

Doesn’t really care about practising anymore,neither would I if I was filthy rich.

I bought Master Of Puppets on vinyl,the release day at Gretas shop in the City,Greta ran Central Station Records under Princes Bridge Station,the first metal and prog record store,bought alot of Rush albums from there,her other store was in banana alley,great old days,also Pipe Imported Records which had dark black european metal on one side and electronic experimental on the other and alot of prog.

P.S. Ride The Lightning was a revolutionary album for thrash metal like what Nirvana’s Nevermind did for the alt movement.

Anyway,enough of music but sports and music go hand in hand,we listen to it when our team wins or loses or celebrate with it.

Frank Zappa “music is the best!”

Grew up in Newcastle - so our source was Utopia records in Sydney. Would trip down there a few times each year back i the day (often on the day of a concert). The effort we'd have to go to just to get access to non top 40 music...... It's so easy to access these days.

BTW - I'm really enjoying the mixes put together by this guy. Plenty of old favourites and introduced me to a load of new stuff. Prog is very much alive and well. .

Dont forget that the during this time, there was no expansion teams, which lower attendances, particular if you played both of them away.

another friday night tonight :drunk:

I did a quick analysis of the remaining fixtures - we will make up most the 100k between now and the end of the season. It will be a close affair but in the end they just have too many more primetime and mcg games - plus the killer will be them vs GC at home vs us against GC away - 40k vs 15k - that will probably be the difference in the end of them just shading us in attendances.
