Go for your life.

Fact is Richmond were a basketcase for 37 years and still remained near the top in members and attendance.

Logically this number would go up if we were actually successful, point is the following is true

1. If Richmond are crap and Collingwood are crap, Richmond has bigger crowds and members
2. If Richmond are good and Collingwood are good , Richmond has bigger crowds and members
3. If Richmond are good and Collingwood are crap, Richmond has bigger crowds and more members
4. If Richmond are crap and Collingwood are good, It is very close as to who has bigger crowds and members
Hate to be the stats guy for attendance, but since the turn of the decade:
Richmond:
  • High Attendance: 57,554 (1st)
  • Low Attendance: 37,943 (15th)
  • Average Attendance: 45,257.56
  • Average Ladder Position: 8th
  • Largest Gap to Collingwood: 6,926
Collingwood:
  • High Attendance: 59,385 (1st)
  • Low Attendance: 44,191 (13th)
  • Average Attendance: 51,294.33
  • Average Ladder Position: 7th
  • Largest Gap to Richmond: 21,442

Remarkable that number of members doesn't translate to on-field performance. Richmond obviously the greatest football club of all time.

Mate you got 47K to your last home game against a team you were supposed to have destroyed.

Don't pretend West Coast fans are any different, seen a great pic of Eagles fans leaving early in your home loss to Port champ :thumbsu:
Are you seriously bagging West Coast for getting 47k against the Suns?

Collingwood hold the top 5 biggest home and away attendance records of all time inc the all time record of 1,306,604 set in 2010! Collingwood have also drawn over 1 million people during the home and away season 9 times when missing finals (1995, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2014, 2015, 2017). Richmond have only drawn over 1 million people when missing finals once in 1998 when Richmond finished 9th!

You might want to get your facts right before posting.

Collingwood draw bigger crowds when winning and draw bigger crowds when losing!!! Fact

West Coast are in a two team city of circa 2 million. Even then, the way it is over there they probably have 80% plus of the market. The fact there are WC supporters in here foaming away about Richmond's praise worthy effort in the super competitive Melbourne market begs belief.
So of that 80% of 2 million you're surprised that there is 1 or 2 posters in here foaming?

Ignoring the fact that removing the highest attended Home and Away game of the year doesn't 100% make sense, i'll humor the assertion because I'm a nice guy.

If we assume ANZAC Day was a regular Collingwood vs. Essendon game and take the 91,440 attendance and change it to 69,868 (attendance that year for Coll vs. Ess regular home and away) the difference is -2% to Collingwood total yearly attendance. Collingwood's advantage over Richmond is much greater than 2% as an overview of those stats (around 12% higher for the decade).

If we are applying that logic, however, we need to apply the same logic to Richmond. Let's get rid of ANZAC eve and make it a normal game. Unfortunately, Richmond only plays Melbourne once, so we will use the next closest example, Hawthorn (37,249 avg. for Melbourne in 2018, 36,122 for Hawthorn). So then we change the 88,180 of ANZAC Eve to 70,701 vs. Hawthorn, and we get a % difference for the year of -1.3%.

Hope that helps.

Next decade will be interesting. Richmond from 82 to 2017 was a horror story.

Who would have thought that by round 8, Richmond would be starting a game as clear underdogs against lowly Freo?

How the not so mighty have fallen....
You’re only serving to prove our point... Richmond is COMFORTABLY bigger than Collingwood, and we’re not even travelling that well are we?

I'm predicting the next decade for Richmond will be another horror story. See, Richmond contending is an exception, not the rule.
It will be a horror story. Ask anyone around Melbourne what it was like in the Hafey years. Nobody fears like people fear Richmond.
