We should all stick up for our clubs the Blues overall have a bigger attendance record than the Tiges bigger average crowd.Mate, I'm struggling to find on any measure where Carlton has Richmond covered, membership?, attendances?, Revenue?, Social Media numbers?, TV ratings?, Merchandise sales? No on ALL counts.
Sorry, but the pies have had success, between 2010-2018 played in 4 GF's, 1 flag, 1 draw and 2 losses), too many excuses given to Pies.
Bombers and Blues, who knows, you may or you may not because at the moment it's all hearsay whether you can match or surpass Richmond once success comes.
We have done it already almost 95K V GWS, so we do not have to prove ourselves. I can understand that weather can play a part even in finals give or take 5-10K, but it didn't just happen once for them it was twice V GWS. I'm more than confident to say that we would top at least 85K in any weather.
It's one thing bringing half your fans, another altogether when looking to fill the majority of the stadium with your own fans, we did it.
I recall saying to a few pies fans if you got 85K that would be the pass mark, but they couldn't top 80K on both occasions (72K & 77k).
It's been good engaging with you, as it is with Dave10, we are all passionate about our teams and there will always be a leaning of sorts in our posting towards our own!
Your Tv average is still below our records of 7 8 years ago. We out rate you in streaming, Youtube views, website hits over 20 years, Twitter, AFL members, MCC members, Google searches unique and overall. Carlton are number 1 in Digital consumption they generate more interest, revenue I think we are number 1 now. There is a general consensus that Carlton have a 25% bigger supporter base than Richmond.
Richmond only are 12 13,000 ahead on Facebook and well ahead on instagram after they won their 3 premierships. We have wooden spoons and we are still second in Merch have 81,000 members and top 5 in crowds the last 5 years.
I give Richmond credit they have the most real supporters (Tangible) you see them at the G pay memberships, but evangalists attend church and are more involved than Catholics but there more Catholics out there ditto Bluebaggers and Tigers.
