Re: Fight Club - Football Crowds

From 9 news 1 hour ago

The Gold Coast Titans should be under serious consideration for relocation to Brisbane, NSW coach Brad Fittler says.
The NRL wants to establish a second Brisbane team, with the Broncos holding a monopoly over Queensland's capital city.
While they would be loathe to give up their footprint on the Gold Coast, especially given the presence of a fledgling AFL team, the Titans sit last on the ladder and have seen their average crowd figure contract to about 11,000.
Coach Garth Brennan was sacked on Sunday after taking the team to a 4-12 record this season. They have been without $1 million per season halfback Ash Taylor since last month due to personal issues.
The club's head of performance and culture, rugby league Immortal Mal Meninga, will on Monday hand down a mid-season review into the club's issues; potentially ordering further change after Brennan was axed. Fittler said that the club may be best to make a fresh start.
"Are the Gold Coast a chance of moving a little bit north? Ipswich?" Fittler asked on The Sunday Footy Show.
"Why wouldn't the Gold Coast be the second Brisbane team? There's 4,000 people turn up to watch them each week. Let's not call it a success.
"They had a couple of good years at the start, without a doubt, and they played semi-finals. But it's far from a success."

Disappointing for both Gold Coast clubs, I think the AFL will persevere a lot longer with the Suns, but they will need a lot more support on and off the ground.

As bad as the Suns crowd was it was bigger than Newcastle’s the week before.

Looks like a smaller than expected crowd at the MCG.
The thing is when comparing the two it needs to be remembered the titans and sun’s are in rl heartland. Could you imagine this happening in Geelong if they put an nrl club there?

Fitler is like Johns. what they say in football terms, should not be given 2 cents worth...

He stated 4k turn up each week.
than the article points our they are avg almost 12k

( Titans moving to Brisbane) just a dumb comment..

The reason they are last>> Need a better roster and good coaching staff..
something they have lacked the past 7-8 years...

a few things,

The % for expats living in geelong who are from QLD and NSW would be very very low..

however the Gold Coast is quite different>> made up of Queenslanders
and alot of NSW people and some Victorians

Both the suns and the titans both benefit from this>>
more so the Titans as Tv Ratings are quite good.

if a Team was placed in geelong you would not have that same thing as the G.C

my Example would be>> imagen a AFL team in Newcastle>>
that would be on Par with Geelong but double the population

I did notice the 4,000 reference, wondered if he had some inside info!!.
Their average is higher than St George and close to Cronulla,and they are in direct competition with an AFL team, but they seem to get more bad press than those mentioned.

Attendance figures for the 2 Gold Coast teams.
Gold Coast average is for both teams.
Titans Suns Gold Coast
Year Ave. Ave. Ave.
2019 11,206 11,685 22,891
2018 12,807 13,547 26,354
2017 13,688 13,663 27,351
2016 13,806 11,561 25,367
2015 11,236 12,361 23,597
2014 13,194 16,092 29,286
2013 14,028 13,907 27,935
2012 14,405 13,645 28,050
2011 15,428 19,169 34,597
2010 17,877 17,877
2009 19,178 19,178
2008 21,618 21,618
2007 21,489 21,489
Sunny Days 12,852 13,959 25,045
Overall. 15,382
Happy days 20,041
Dark Days 7,409

Sunny Days: from when the Suns started playing.
Happy Days: when the Titans had no competition
Dark Days: the other NRL Gold Coast Teams.

individually both GC teams are comparable to several current NRL sides, jointly the look pretty good.

Here is an idea that should generate some spirited dialogue from both sides of the Barassi line.

play on alternate weekend and offer a joint membership at a reasonable discount.

Still need to fix the on ground issues.

individually both GC teams are comparable to several current NRL sides, jointly the look pretty good.

I think if you take out home games in China and other areas the. Suns average is higher.

Freddy,

There ya Go A Huge Drop on Suns crowds in the space of the week.

8700 That is a 50% drop in numbers from previous game.

And the crowd was still almost on par for noise when the Crows Scored.

(what happened to all the Richmond fans ? that hang around after attending the previous week..

(my point proven Suns survive on away attendances at there own ground..

quite amazing really.
Deflecting already over the kangawhoos crowds

You’ll also find the Suns are ahead of the gold come titans in crowds this year
Suns 11685
Gold coke titans 11206
i do not reply to stupidity...

And my example was just shown..
Suns rely on away fans to get that average..

now go annoy someone else
But but but unless you have official proof of this G&GF
And give your self a warning then a ban as isn’t rhatbwas it meant to happen to other members where they dribble on about wacky theory’s on crowds

Those are the stats and shows Suns are ahead the titans in what meant to be league heart land!

Before you attempt to throw in more but buts that the titans are on the bottom of the ladder! So are the Suns
