Fair enough, that is one way of looking at it I guess. What about free memberships for all RL juniors in Victoria? Good idea for the Suns to consider?

yeah definitely,

kids who play footy AFL or NRL should receive a Season Pass.

Well, that wont do the crowds any harm at all.


There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.

Yeah it was pretty big crowd. Hugely Richmond. Shows support for Aussie Rules is strong but I guess that was never in question - Aussie rules is quite large here - several leagues at senior levels and a large junior presence. Getting them behind the Suns though is where the challenge is however they do a good job at the juniors promoting themselves. I think it’s an easier task than GWS where there little Aussie Rules support to begin with.

Who would have predicted such a competitive and winningr GC a few months ago ?
Who would have predicted such a come back in this match ?
Plenty of ex pats in the crowd.
Plenty of generational local Queenslanders in the crowd !
Winning on the field and winning over more fans.
It's win win for GC.


I didn't want a crap name anymore !
Formally RLcrap
