Tiger Army just drew further in front of Collingwood. Now twice as many 80,000+ crowds.

70,000-80,000:
- Richmond 9
- Collingwood 8

80,000-90,000:
- Richmond 10
- Collingwood 5

90,000-100,000:
- Collingwood 2
- Richmond 1
Richmond 9+10+1=20
Collingwood 8+5+2=15

How is that "twice as many"?

Never been bandwagoners.

If you look at the long history of VFL,when Richmond made finals,we got the biggest crowds.
Only because Richmond were playing at the mcg while Collingwood were playing at Victoria Park. Yet Richmond are 9.3 million behind the pies. Richmond are the biggest bandwagon club in the competition. Why in 1990 where Richmond almost extinct? Why in 2010 and 11 Richmond were forced to play home games in cairns?

Collingwood still 54,000 in front of Richmond. Collingwood will Be 70-100,000 in front of Richmond at the end of the home and away season.

Richmond fans complain that Collingwood get a better draw. I tell you why the afl give Collingwood a better draw because the afl have all statistical data of which clubs draw the biggest crowds year in year out and Collingwood in no.1!!! Richmond 2 good year on field and yet Collingwood coming off a grand final has already overtaken Richmond!

Your dream time game tiger which was your home game could only draw 80,000!! Collingwood’s home game last year on Anzac Day only grew 91,000!!

The reason why Anzac Day is between Collingwood and Essendon is because Collingwood and Essendon are the 2 clubs with the biggest supporter bases in Australia. Look at every fan poll in Roy Morgan, SuperCoach, social media Richmond are not close to Collingwood and Essendon. For a club that claims to have 100,000 members Richmond have not once managed to sell out any of their home games!!

I’ll end the debate right now.

Collingwood are 9.3 million in front of Richmond for total home and away attendance’s and are 99 k in front of Richmond for total attendance’s so far in 2019!

Collingwood are miles ahead of Richmond on social media. You cannot Argue with these facts. If this was a debate competition I would of won this months ago
Historical numbers have no place here this is about the biggest club now not in 1922.

Has Collingwood played a game away from the MCG yet we have plyed Power in Adelaide, GWS in Sydney and Freo in Perth, nearly all our end of season games are at the G.
As for social media "numbers", face book has been reading your posts it seems...
"Facebook says it removed 3.39 billion fake accounts from October to March. That's twice the number of fraudulentaccounts deleted in the previous six-month period"

I believe 50% of these had Eddie Mc Chins IP address:$

Things getting desperate in Collingwood. Now free scarf, Cap and jumper with your super cheap membership. You can't get a jumper, scarf and cap for anywhere near as cheep as that, and they throw in a membership.
They're getting really, really desperate to be perceived as only a little bit smaller than Richmond.
Do you think they'll catch up with give aways like this?

Is this current like a 2019 offer?

If so that is amazing, cap, scarf and membership for $20?

Haha nuffie.

80,000 last night equivalent to high 80's given the weather.

I know you don't work, given the frequency of your posting, but do you get what a public holiday is?

Richmond with 100,000 members and still are unable to be the biggest drawing club in the competition
Actually it's 101,600 now. Probably 105,000 by the end of season. :)
Pies stuck on 81,000, despite being 1st, and flag favourites. :'(

Stop making excuses! You like 90% of your Richmond fans were no where to be seen 5 years ago almost extinct selling home games to cairns.

You cannot handle that Collingwood are drawing bigger crowds in 2019 and are bigger then Richmond on every fan survey and social media.

Apart of having supposedly 100,000 members where 40% only turn up where are the other members??

Collingwood get the big games because the afl know a flying and successful Collingwood is the only club that can 1.2 million people through the turnstiles during the home and away season. Richmond have never done this even at their peak last year. Collingwood have done this 5 times

No need for the tantrum mate I was just pointing out that Richmond have featured in twice as many 80-90,000 crowds in the past 5 years as the Pies, and have over 20,000 more members.

Geelong supporters still melting about 2017.

Geelong fan renounces membership after feeling sexually, physically threatened at qualifying final v Richmond

A GEELONG member who felt sexually threatened at Friday night’s qualifying final against Richmond has renounced her Cats membership.
Elly had been an “on and off” member at Geelong for 17 years, including the last 10 seasons consecutively.
But after feeling sexually and physically intimidated by Richmond fans outside and inside the MCG on Friday night, she said she could no longer support a sporting code that allowed such behaviour.
“All was going well until we walked across the park to the MCG,” Elly told foxfooty.com.au.
