It’s a big improvement considering Richmond, Collingwood and Hawthorn reached their numbers on the back of premierships and/or sustained success. Essendon haven’t won a final for 15 years to boost anything.Essendon final tally: 84,237. New record.
Finally passed Hawthorn for first time since 2008. Only a bit over 1,000 behind Collingwood despite the Pies coming off a Grand Final (I think).
Excellent growth again.
No it doesn't. The game has been just fine over the past 18 years.Yep the comp needs a strong Essendon and of course Carlton.
