Participation grew at small percentage from a very low base - most from girls playing. From memory 2%. I know all the figures.
ok

Thank you for providing the perfect excuse for yet again posting these figures (originally provided by BringBackTorps with sources) -

2014 GWS Sydney Zone 10 U12 boys' Comp. teams
2014 nil U12 girls' teams (in fact, no girls' Comp. teams in any age groups)
2019 GWS Sydney Zone 18 U12 boys' Comp. teams
2019 GWS Sydney Zone 11 U13 girls' Comp. teams

So that's an increase from 10 to 29 U12 or U13 teams in the GWS Sydney zone - slightly more than 2%!

Perhaps another topic for your obsession (or paranoia) might be the AFL ratings beating the NRL ratings on FTA in Brisbane last night.

5 years with millions thrown at club & grand total of 8 male teams created. Staggering growth alright.

I'm counting 26 seperate clubs (that's clubs, not just teams - most clubs have multiple teams) in the list below, covering the GWS Sydney zone (so not counting the Canberra and Riverina clubs). No way was there this many, or anywhere near it, when the Giants started -

Every one is entitled to an opinion you might not agree with him but to label a troll is uncalled for some of his points about crowds and growth figures do have some merit
The evidence is there. He is a troll.

He posts about nothing at all other than the Giants. Have a look at his history.

I mean even you post about other things besides bagging the 2 expansion clubs.
