Tassie home games will be rabid, like when the crows first came into the competition, it will be great to see that level of passion.

Yep. Absolutely agree with this. However I dont a Tassie team is going to happen. The noise around it lately leans towards it being shut down. Hope I am wrong.

Will part of the new stand be accessible by then? Looks like its a fair way off still.
Stands generally do, because we compare them to houses mentally. But once the concrete is in, it's 70% done. There's not a whole lot of fitout to do comparatively. By Xmas shutdown, I'd expect all major construction to be done or near done, leaving seat and outlet installation, plus some roofing work.

Bigger effects being felt from SA and WA crowds being down.
Thats a bit rough on the Dockers, with a 53k crowd this weekend for the Derby they will only be slightly under their 2018, 2019 ave. The Eagles crowds however thats a different story…

If the Blues were in better form, then the Melbourne v Carlton H&A record of 60,794 set back in 1980 would’ve been in play this weekend. Potentially low 50’s this weekend, which would still be a good result.

Still got to be a chance of that 60k happening, surely. It's still a vital match and Carlton have played the last two games outside of Vic.

Pretty bizarre that there's only been 9 H&A games of 50k between the two.

Pity it’s raining Sunday in Melbourne.
May have got 50K to the Houli, Lambert and Caddy send off game.

Last home game of the season, somewhere between 40-50K

Looking at ticketek reserved seat sales look pretty solid so i think 50k+ would have been a certainty..
Hopefully the low moves quicker to the east and its not too bad...

I don't think the SCG actually holds it's listed capacity of 48,000 any more so anything over 40,000 would be a great crowd.
According to austadiums they drew 42,000 against hawthorn in 2016 - I don’t remember the match but this seems to be a likely equivalent ?

This week is making me nostalgic for the early 2000s when Swans fans liked going to Stadium Australia.

A Swans/Pies match with basically identical circumstances (2nd last round playing for 2nd spot) got 72,393 back in 2003.

Surely 30K tonight.

Top 4 and top 8 on the line and the Lions have the equivalent of a small vic team In support.

Third tier is open which always makes it harder to judge, but it looks dismal so far.

Yer bit deceptive as the camera side of the ground has quite a few in the 3rd tier but the other side of the ground has stuff all in the 3rd tier.

55000 tickets sold so far for the western derby

If the Dockers didn’t have the crowd cap at the start of the season they would have broken the ave crowd home record this year. If they get 55k on Sunday it will be their 3rd highest ave ever, Only slightly under 2019.

We’re at that stage of the year where teams out of contention looking for the year to end see really poor disengaged crowds. Tonight’s crowd a case in point. Reserved seats very sparse.

Ticket sales for the Bombers game on Sunday are looking pathetic and indicative of a team whose fans will stay home and watch it on TV. As they’ve done for much of 2022 to be frank. Pre sales looking worse that it’s crowd against the Gold Coast to me.
