I really hope fans from other clubs turn up in round one. After being locked inside our homes for the better part of a year I expected a hell of a lot more fans at tonight's game.

Campbelltowns game has been moved to Newcastle as the pitch is trashed.
Storms tomorrow makes me think the Sydney Derby won’t sell out but should be a good crowd.
Victory are playing in Westerns ground in Geelong.
Newcastle is a basket case.
Perth are supposedly selling a lot of tickets so a possible.

so probably 2 games will get a good crowd.

Victory first home game a Sunday 4:05pm game wont help our numbers either.

I don't care about the disallowed goal, this ref has been unashamedly pro Brisbane all of the 2nd half.

Anyhow unconvincing win to the new Kings of Australian Football, but 3 points is 3 points.

I find it kinda weird too. Think it could be to get the most out of the audience from both platforms one match is live on 10 and the other is streamed on Paramount Plus. Don't know just my thinking.

I miss the 5:30 pm Saturday twilight kickoff/game too although granted the Jets v Mariners game had to be rescheduled.

looking at the fixture I think it normally goes

Friday night x1
Saturday afternoon/twilight x1
Saturday night x2 maybe x3 if matches are in Perth on Saturday night
Sunday Afternoon/twilight x2

I think they are sticking to this formula.

Fair enough, I think they could have saved Will You ever Build a Stadium v Victory game till tomorrow afternoon, instead of clashing with probably game of the round, the Sydney Derby.
