Mine 1993 AFL grand Carlton vs Essendon.
53,698, First showdown of 2017. Ground record at the time until the preliminary final that year. Fondly remember Tex’s long bomb in the last to win the game. Celebrated in an area packed with port supporters.
That 2017 prelim atmosphere was magic and even seemed louder than the 2018 anzac match I was at with a 94000 crowd. Those away showdown wins are always a special buzz too.
I went to the Hawks Cats final 2013 with a hawks fan my ears were ringing. No bullshit74K hawthorn vs north 2007 SF.
The week before was when Buddy kicked 7 goals against the Crows and won us the match at the death.
I sat in the nosebleeds with my partner, and I remembered, every the Hawks got the ball the crowd was defeaning.
Crowd was definitely pro Hawthorn, but when North had the match sewn up in the last quarter, a large section of North supporters were singing their song loud and proud.
Unfortunately, North won that night.
Oh yeah, Hawthorn supporters would have been buzzing in the last quarter. Hawks were down 20 points at 3QT, and ended up winning by 5pts, broke the Kennett curse, and got us into the GF.I went to the Hawks Cats final 2013 with a hawks fan my ears were ringing. No bullshit
I reckon the biggest game I've ever been to that involved Carlton would be the 2013 elimination final against Richmond, which had a crowd of 94,690. I can't think of any games involving Carlton that would have had bigger crowds in my lifetime.Who did the Blues play?
