Battle of the bridge sellout fake news (Giants vs Swans)

Post by NRL&NFLweLaughATafl »

Anyone else notice all the empty seats today.

The China exhibition match was called a sellout too which was far from full.

Does anyone know why AFL keeps calling sellouts when the stadium don't even look close to full?

Oh FFS... you clearly don’t live in Sydney and have NFI. Game was a sellout but Sydney Trains were fucked up all day.

Lots of fans could not get to either the AFL or Rugby at Homebush.

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Interesting post Beatup. The RL folk here have been saying for yonks that crowds are effected by the lousy public transport only to get shouted down by the likes of you and your now departed mates lolololol.

But now that is the reason 'sellout' fumbling crowds have banks of empty seats FFS lolololololo.

Oh....and the Rugby crowd was bigger than expected. So that kinda strikes out that excuse.

Excuses excuses. There were empty seats everywhere even after the 3rd quarter. Surely any late arrivals would have turned up by then lol

At the end of the day AFL falsely claimed a sellout.

Why don't they just call it the Sydney Derby. Battle of the bridge makes no sense.
