Sydney AFL going down the gurgler - and quick!!!!!

Post by Terry » Thu May 02, 2019 3:48 pm

After decades of being at or near the top of the fumbleball tree it appears the Swans are finally slipping down the ladder and into obscurity in Australia's biggest and greatest city. It's not a surprise after being propped up by fumblehouse with the big freeby otherwise known COLA being stripped off 'em in recent years.

Here's a few prominent takes from the article below:

"Just 29,780 people turned up at the SCG on a perfect night for football – the worst attendance figure for a derby at Moore Park in five seasons."

"the Giants did not have significant representation in the stands, despite the fact they are shaping as genuine premiership contenders again this year." Which begs the question where were there 27k 'members'? Oh that's right.....that's just a lie lololol!!!!!!!

"I think, again, it just shows you how difficult the Sydney market can be."

So lets see what happens from here. If the Swans do bottom out for a few seasons, as predicted, home crowds will be as sparse as the former Blacktown mob. Reality will set in. Beatup will retreat to the jungle full time. Gilty will be working overtime spinning positive propaganda.

This could be a funny ride lolol!!!!!

I think it is fairly usual regardless of team or code that where form drops so do crowds. But yes, how much. And nearly 30000 being considered a disappointment shows expectations are high.

Well this never seems to happen to the Storm funny enough. They're second on the ladder again as we speak. They've missed the top 4 only twice since 2006 and once was because of cheating penalties.

I for one am happy to see the swans take their turn out of the 8

A very considered response Fred. Almost sensible and objective. Are you the same Fred or another Fred?

I'm sure Aflol house will be feverishly working on a new rort that they can give to the Swines .
Um ...no not cola ..we've used that .
Um retention allowance ..um no ..we've used that .
Um think people think .
Lol
Will be funny watching them come up with something .

Isn't it's funny when there's something close to a fair onfield comp that the Swines suddenly go backward .
Who woulda thunk it ..lol

How fans put up with a rigged comp for so long was Mind boggling .

Then again they're close enough to cult members ..nodding saying yes it's good for the game .

A fair onfield comp ...new territory for afl fans .
Situation normal in NRL & other sports .

We will see how long it takes afl house to rig it again


Metho madness.
Lol $10 NRL tickets.$10 NRL tickets .How pathetic is that ?
Crickets chirping after I post $5 AFlol tickets .
Self ownage ..no one does it better .

Oh almost forgot .the fumblers on here are all quiet about the crowd .
Lol at the same venue the week before te NRL got 10k + more .

Remember the crap they used to go on with .
Swans will have the biggest crowd in Syd of Any code outside rep games or finals .

Lol some nutters can't remember if here or Bf were predicting the derby would be the biggest game in town ...will grow & grow .
Lol .

Lol
& once again I will explain it .
WE ARE NOT THE ONES WHO GO ON ABOUT CROWDS .
We don't make the laughable predictions .

You lot do . Then when it doesn't happen or things start going south you try to deflect .

Maybe if you lot didn't bignote so much you wouldn't give us so much ammo to fire back .

take it up with the individuals who said what you claimed.

Reality check: The swans average just shy of 30k per home game despite performing very poorly this year with 1 win from 6 games. The highest Sydney NRL club has a crowd average of 20k. Sydney clubs play numerous local derbies, the Swans only 2 for the season.

We dont put up horrendous crowds in our own heartland .

We have every right to crow about crowds and you have no right

Was thinking exactly the same thing reading Terry’s OP.

Fair dinkum... Terry sure is special. Fancy suggesting just under 30,000 crowd for the Swans vs Giants is considered dire in his mind. #-o

Meanwhile in the NRL... I mean...check out the 2018 NRL finals series in the pic below . :hmm:

Great thread Terry. Hilarious :rofl:


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Thanks Beatup! Glad you liked it. I'll keep a close eye on the Swannies & keep you up to date as events unfold. For your sake I hope they can turn things around lest you stagger beaten, battered & weeping into the jungle with all your fumbleball mates.

Good luck and keep morale high!!!!!

i think there is a few positives than negatives here.

Swans are playing badly and still managed 30k...

Tv ratings are still going ok.

it is only early in the season though.. if the trend continues be interesting in 10 weeks or so..

(where were those 27k GWS members at the SCG...?? )
