No I didn't. It's a 430 timeslot on a Saturday of an election. The reigning premiers didn't muster up much of a crowd either. Potting the most passionate group of members in the competition, the year they have broken their membership record after years of dog s**t performance doesn't sit well with me. I go when I can, take my kid members along too. So duck off with your bullshit
On what evidence can you possibly say that we're the most passionate group of supporters? On what I saw this afternoon you're misguided there.

Club is the one that should be ashamed.
I can't remember the last time I have wanted to watch a replay of a game on kayo.
I can't remember the last time I have wanted to talk footy at work, on a Monday morning.
How often have I said after a nmfc game, that was a wasted afternoon.
The club to get to get to this level of sh1tness, has done a lot wrong.
It's the nmfc that should be ashamed, not the people who support it.

It was embarrassing in the social club - 4 players there for a q and a and about 40 supporters in the room, the size of which could hold 500 plus.

Disgraceful 13k Crowd after a long time between games in Melbourne.

Don’t come back when we start winning, pathetic.

More Melbourne supporters here than North!

I went but it’s a bit harsh to expect people to turn up and watch a side that has been putting in the effort we have.

Today they missed a performance that was definitely an improvement. I actually thought the scoreline flattered Melbourne given that they were given every advantage by incompetent umpiring.

But as I said on the main board Melbourne had the difficulty of shooting for goal with an umpire hanging off their knob.

Get ducked. Seriously. There's heaps of reasons and one of them is the time slot. Another is the election another is our form. JFC this bullshit annoys the s**t out of me. We are a small club so we dig in and buy memberships we get zero value out of, and that's not good enough? Here I was in a positive mood after getting home halfway through the second quarter and seeing some genuine good signs, and now I'm getting told to hang my head in shame. Suck my ******* dick.

I was there, but I’m not sure shaming people for not being there is going to make them attend?

People expecting people to turn up in force given what we have produced for the last 5 weeks, must be the eternal optimist.

The only thing that is going to improve attendance is to start playing good footy.

I think this is a bit harsh…

Personally, I have been going to less and less games even though I am 20+ year member.

Parking, reserved seats (barcodes), transport, difficulty trying to buy a drink or bite to eat, cost of living challenges - Just some of the issues to weigh up for the average punter versus watching on fox in the comfort of your own home with Uber eats and a beer at arms length without having to line up for half an hour. I think viewing habits for most AFL supporters would have changed after Covid?

The last game I went to was Brisbane at the Gabba earlier this year - I think I might have PTSD?

All the excuses on here. Not a cloud in the sky, family friendly time, home game (first in a while) and probably 4K north supporters.

What does this bode for our future? Where are the supporters during the hard time?

Sorry this is a new North low, embarrassment .

A lot of factors that have been mentioned already are fair for impacting crowd size.....but it's no excuse for having only 13K turn up.

And when that crowd number figure popped up on the screen.....the laughs and commentary from melbourne supporters was telling.

What rebuttal can you say? You know how people say 'we may not have the most but we have the best supporters in comp'........what an absolute joke that is.

It's embarrassing.

If you live in Melbourne and 'choose' not to go......you're part of the problem and any opinion you have on this forum whether I agree with it or not...is dog s**t to me.

Don't engage with me on here.....you're not worthy.

I may post s**t you don't like, don't agree etc but I turn up to my team's games regardless of how the team is going.
