Well the Giants are, incredibly, up to it again!!!!!!!! Today they announced they have 25k 'members'. And once again they put out a graph to show where their 'members' are. And once again the graph tells the lie of their own claim lololololol!!!!!!

https://twitter.com/GWSGIANTS

So this year they state they have 4.7k 'members' in their top regions in NSW but 70.95% of members in NSW in total. They also claim 19.5% are in the ACT and 9.25% in other states. The total for their top NSW regions and the ACT and other states is 11.7k 'members'. So this year there is a black hole of 13,300 'members'.

Where are these 'members'? Who are they? If the top regions in NSW come to only 4.7k how can the rest of NSW possibly have 13.3k??????? This is just bald faced lying. How the hell someone in the media doesn't pick this up is beyond me. Dr Goebbels would be proud of these numbers!!!!!!
NSW population is 7.544m
The top regions have 1.329m for 4.7k members at 0.35%.
That leaves 6.215m to account for the 13.3k balance at 0.21%
Sounds reasonable.

"Black hole"......... Where?
I punched those figures into my calculator, SportsCapital is spot on.
Giants claims of 25000 are reasonable when you factor 6.215 mill for the other 13.3 k members.
I hope this will eventually lead to better crowds at spotless, an average crowd around the 20000 mark would be a good figure to aim for in the next few years.

And when you consider the national AFL club membership rate of all the other clubs is about 4.14% there is a fair amount of room for growth.
Could the beat the tigers one day......?

At least there's one fumblefan who isn't brainwashed


Always been something odd with GWS membership numbers. There just isnt the revenue to back this up unless they have 25,000 people paying just over the minimum amount to be recognised by the AFL as a member ($50, be a person with contact information - person can have more than 1 membership counted).

25,000 members should be a minimum revenue of 1.25 million at a minimum $50 each. Last year total membership, reserved seating, gate reciepts and merchandise came in at 1.8m - with 20,000 members.

Ok sports fans, we haven't played this game for a while so here we go:

I just checked the GWS web site and they claim they have 28,245 members. Yep........you heard that right. They actually, really, fair dinkum say they have that many. Laughable I know!!!!

So, today they play the Suns at Nameless Stadium. The weather is perfect. There are no other sports on in Sydney today. So what will the crowd be? Or rather what will the stated crowd number be.............and what will the actual number be......you know in reality.

I'd say they will claim 9.5k but there will in fact be about 2.2k.

Waddaya think sports fans????

So going by your logic terry
If two nsw based nrlol teams have 45, 50k of members between them and regularly get that fudged 10k crowds does that mean the nrlol clubs member numbers are fudged as well?

We know the nrlol is great at fudging most things
