Looks like there's about 14 people there.
Fuck this is rich from you lot about crowds though. Would've been 10,067 from the NRL.

Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.

Oh my .
This is hilarious .
The aFL propaganda DEPt has been very busy .

My guess is it went something like this .
GIL: Ok the place was near empty what excuse can we come up with .
Silence .
GIl
I know we say they were all out the back eating in catering tents .
Silence
Janitor mopping floor : hey boss you can't use that again you've already used it twice .

GIl:...yeh but the braindead fans believe it .

Janitor:.. tell em fans got lost on way to stadium .

GIl:. Brilliant ..that'll do us for next year as well .


A mishap by organisers saw busloads of attendees taken to the “wrong stadium” for Sunday’s AFL match in Shanghai, according to Brisbane champion Jonathan Brown.

A crowd of 9,412 was reportedly in attendance for Port Adelaide’s win over St Kilda, down from 10,689 and 10,118 for the two Power v Gold Coast matches in previous years.

But on On the Couch, Brown claimed that a large portion of the crowd was taken to somewhere other than the Adelaide Arena at Jiangwan Stadium.

A large portion of the crowd .
Yet another news article said 400 got lost
So if 400 was a large portion .what was the crowd 700?

Afl China the gift that keeps on giving

Oh dear lord . What is wrong with these Aflol types .

It's grown from 400 to 10000.
Lol yeh that's believable when there was already supposed to be 9 k there & another 10 k were on the way .
& they have got nearly 20 k each game in the past..
Havnt they ?
Lol,
It's incredible that they would talk this much shit & keep a straight face .
So if there's 50 per bus that's 200 buses .
Lol with not one driver knowing where a stadium is in their home city .

But on On the Couch, Brown claimed that a large portion of the crowd was taken to somewhere other than the Adelaide Arena at Jiangwan Stadium.

“It’s poor management by the organisers,” he said on Fox Footy.

“People are complaining about the crowd, Gerard. Now, there should’ve been 20,000 people there.

“It was a sellout, but 10,000 people turned up to the wrong stadium because the buses that were carrying all the tourists and all the locals to the ground went to the wrong ground! And they didn’t make it to the ground!”

However Foxfooty.com.au understands that it was closer to four or five busloads of people who were taken elsewhere.

It still begs the question, asked by Brownlow medallist Gerard Healy: “How many other AFL grounds are there in Shanghai?”

This makes “the dog ate my homework” sound like the work of a genious mind, it makes the ‘boy who cried wolf’ sound like an honest angel :lol:

:rofl:
Anyway I think there’s possibly something really serious going down here. From all reports the Afl doesn’t know where those 10000 people (locals and all :lol:)actually ended up. I mean, another ground sounds pretty ambiguous, which ground? Are they ok? It sounds like it could be foul play so I wanna know the latest reports and why the Afl are unable to tell us where the innocent 10,000 are now. Why aren’t the police involved!! I mean we’re talking ten thousand people here!

:lol:

I don’t think anyone is buying this.... most commentators are having a laugh .... so not sure where the “afl supporters will believe anything told by Gil” thing is coming from.

Yep if I was an afl fan I would cringe at the bullshit that just keeps getting churned out .

At least The NRL doesn't have a propaganda DEPt that can come up with shit like this .

We tend to be realists ...especially with the media reporting every little thing .

Lol this bus bullshit is going to be an ongoing joke till next years propaganda release .

I dont think Gil made the claim, it was said on fox. https://au.sports.yahoo.com/afl-china-s ... 28999.html
According to Fox Footy’s Alastair Lynch, several buses which had been arranged to ferry hundreds of would-be spectators were sent to the wrong stadium.

“The Shanghai company which underwrites this game has 400 guests and staff members on buses to come to the game,” Lynch reported at half time.

“They were taken to the wrong stadium.

“They’re still on the way, they should be here by three-quarter time, but the major sponsor has sent his guests to the wrong stadium.”
You'd think if this was a lie the major sponsor would have a say since they've been thrown under one of the buses as the culprit :mrgreen:

Although 400 extra people wouldnt be enough to fill the stadium anyway

:lol: blaming it on the chinese :lol: spose the chinese folk won’t be bothered to read about Afl news so there’s no chance of em seeing the news.

But do we all reckon the Afl mighta slipped lynch and brown a lil incentive in a Brown paper bag to propagate the lost bus story?

:-k

What has happened to the Chinese TV ratings for this game??? Last year before the game they said it would rate higher than any program in Australia. But then after the game the silence on ratings was deafening. Yep.....nothing. Don't tell me they lied again lololololol.

So this year no mention of Chinese TV ratings at all. Were they turfed off local TV due to non interest?? Are they about to be thrown outta China kinda like........ummmmmm........oh yeah.......NZ punted 'em lolololololol!!!!!!!!!!!

he works for fox and has done for years. You cant pin this on the AFL when they have even made a claim at all. Otherwise every media comment for every sport is owned by the sport :lol:
