    More Gold Coin/$5 type of payment I am hearing. I think that's fair if it is a bigger stadium.

    Exactly .....making the exercise of other sports to get coverage so much tougher

    Aus Open dominates Jan, and Dec is a non month as xmas celebrations dominate .....it's great strategic marketing

    Even a coffee is $3.80 these days .....so a $2 coin, or $5 with half going to a womens cause like Breast Cancer would be ideal and another promotional opportunity for Breast Cancer

    That was great. She is awesome and what an inspiration for young girls.
    Have enjoyed both Crows games and am very excited to be able to see my team vs Crows. Am a bit concerned about the crowd and getting in. Might have to get there super early. Last time I went to Thebby Oval was to see Pink Floyd

    Lets say it was Etihad Stadium ......think that would be ticketed as we could expect a 30,000 strong crowd at the final

    As an aside the men play at AO the next day. If the women finish top 2 I have heard the final is at AO. Womens Final on the Saturday/ Night , Mens home game Sunday

    Is that for a stand alone match? ie Womens final. Otherwise the spectators are there for the ''event''

    I would have said Netball for a consistent basis ie Adelaide were getting 11,000 at times. Would Sydney/Melbourne have bigger netball crowds?

    I think the crowds for women's matches across the entire Open would be quite good but yes, you do pay to attend the event rather than specific matches (excluding finals)

    I'd go with a golf event when Webb was at her peak and we had a good group of the best golfers coming here.

    Really?
    Wouldn't have thought you'd get more than a couple of thousand to a golf event?

    Maybe, I thought perhaps 10-12k by 4 days if it was a big event and the best in the world were here.

    Not sure if they count multiple days, would be bit like counting every match in the AFLW season as its the one event.

    10k probably a stretch for a single day anyway. I was thinking that when Webb was number 1 we had some huge tournaments which included good numbers from the other best players in the world and women's golf was pretty big itself.

    But event the biggest tournaments in the world wouldn't get that many people would it?
    Maybe I'm along way off?

    They do for somethings but i was just going on Drugs question
    Event - i guess that has to include all days?
    Bit unfair for single day events.
