what is your angle postin here?
Does he have to have an angle? IDK if I've just missed some stuff but you're not the first to act like he's up to some shenanigans, when all I see is a Tasmanian roo fan talking about what's happening down here regarding our games and the state's prospects for their own team, as well as some of their opinions on those things.

People in Tasmania are saying it could be a record low afl crowd for this weekends game in Hobart,I wonder how many they would of got in Melbourne for this game.
Right now, this season, people seem quite gunshy about attending games.

North have a rusted on contingent that attend games (in a regular season not affected by covid looming over things) of somewhere between 16-18k.

That is probably what we would get.

We got 13k to the Port game and it was with stadiums at 75% I expect we'd have gotten something like that this week.

13k would more than double what we would get on the map which will likely be 6k or less.

It's the passive-aggressive tone of his posts that imply he has a deeper agenda. I mean, it's a bit snipey to talk about record low AFL crowd, don't you think?

Yea, perfectly innocent, that's why I'm not the first to question it.

I don't think so, no. Crowds have been bad all year across the league, we're sh*t, GWS has no supporters, interstate travel is limited, and the weather is sh*te. It seems a pretty real possibility.

Record low for what the venue or the league.

The league is zero chance, we played in front of 300 people last year.

The venue I CBF looking it up.

Melbourne drew 6k earlier in the year. It'll probably drop from that.

The cruxt of the issue is less how many rock up to Hobart. It is that we can have more and would always have more come to Docklands and even with more coming it is less likely to make us money.

For that venue was my assumption.

Not actually a North supporter, though.
