The Swans got one bloke at their press conference after a big win lolololol!!! And here's a quote from an article about it: "
".....recent scenes have come as a reminder that while the AFL might be a national competition, it still exists in a country split in two.
Sydney and the AFL were left to bemoan the fact that just a single journalist showed up for coach John Longmire’s post-match press conference in round 17 after their impressive win over the Western Bulldogs.
A photo of Vince Rugari, a sports reporter with The Sydney Morning Herald, surrounded by a sea of empty chairs ignited social media interest after the presser, broadcast around the country by Channel 7, became a one-on-one interview.
Rugari tweeted he found it staggering to be in that situation as two teams battled for a finals spot in ostensibly the country’s biggest sporting league.
Just months after the sugar hit of the incredible scenes sparked by Lance Franklin’s 1000th VFL/AFL goal, it was an embarrassing reality check for the sport at a time the State of Origin rugby league crescendo and the Wallabies v England rugby series were dominating coverage in the Sydney media."
It seems the fumbling game ain't doin' as well in good 'ol Sydney town as the spruikers and propagandists make out!!!! Who woulda known lolololololololol!!!!!!
