The fact is Melbourners don't mind a major game of Rugby League to turn out in numbers like that.

And the fact is AFL has never gotten a crowd near that in NSW & Qld.

State of Origin is selling really well for Perth this year too. Another AFL heartland state loving their Rugby League. :wink:

No doubt SoO is a marquee event... that’s why it rates extremely well and draws great crowds wherever it is played in Australia. Any marquee event does that in Melbourne. Throw the super ball there and watch them turn up. This is why it also draws a crowd in nsw as opposed to regular games. Throw the nrl gf in there as well. If they played the afl grand final in Sydney that held 100000 do you not think they would near fill it ? Of course they would ... it’s a marquee event. You’d also get a lot travelling up for the game too. Or over for it. Maybe down for it. Depends who is playing. :)

Soo is an event a gimmick!

What doesn’t the Minnowbourne Storm rate or get crowds any where near any other Victorian based club and whybare they still so minnow and irrelevant

Also Sydney and Brisbane don’t have a stadium as big as the mcg!
Also the afl has achieve better H&A and finals game crowd than the nrlol ever has in sydney

The AFL fan just can't comprehend 91,000 at a Rugby League game in Melbourne.

Suddenly he researches excuses in anger to disprove why so many out.. :lol:

It's an outrage. I'll make up bargain tickets to make me feel better. :lol: :lol:
Might be surprised what the average AFL fan in Melbourne can imagine.

91,000? I mean it pulled almost that much before. And its not that special.

AFL games have pulled more than that - every year. Opening day of the Boxing Day Test has pulled more than that. International soccer has pulled more than that. Concerts have pulled more than that. The Commonwealth Games pulled more than that.

Not in NSW or Qld they haven't. ANZ holds around 80,000. AFL has'nt even filled that for a major AFL game in NSW.

One reason it is being converted permanently to a rectangular stadium.

Note that I responded to your post claiming that Melbournians couldnt comprehend a crowd of 91,000 in Melbourne. Im well aware of ANZs capacity and rebuild, and the Swans largest crowd there was 73,000 - but its got nothing to do with my reply.
