I'll be disappointed if there's less than 80k at the Richmond Carlton game, considering the hype around the two clubs going into 2023.
Imagine if Blues v Tigers get less than Cats vs Pies like OP suggests when Geelong fans are infamous for not travelling 1 hour down the road on weekday nights. That’d be actual embarrassing,

Surely not possible?

I wouldn't say embarrassing. Just a little disappointing but both games will get healthy crowds regardless. Geelong still get a good turnout and Collingwood are Collingwood.

The numbers should be similar to round 1, 2019 (85,000 and 78,000).
