There'd be a crap crowd no matter where we played...

Oh a suggestion for the Wests Tigers website - if you're going to send out a 'Keep the Faith' message to inspire the fans, don't use a photo of the team watching a conversion after conceding a try...

I saw 3 blokes in jerseys walking towards leichhardt at about 2.30 this arvo so the crowd will probably be somewhere between 3-10,000

(Unless they get too drunk between now and kickoff)

Will be making the trip from Penrith. Not expecting a massive crowd. Based in what I read on the WT Facebook page we have a large amount of Celebrators outnumbering the supporters.

Not going because the team is going crap makes you a celebrator not a supporter.

Blue skies ahead?

Anyway, I think it's fair enough to consider fans not attending games. If I lived in Sydney I'd be reluctant to give up my $30 every week. Not because we're losing but I'd find it hard to spend any amount of money on something I am not going to enjoy. I love the Tigers but I'm not gonna spend money sitting out in the rain freezing myself watching us go down by 20+. Except for tonight it was well worth it.
Besides that, if you aren't made of money or you have a family it's a hard thing going out to every game.
So Delps I appreciate the apology but I think you should probably consider your argument from everyone's perspective, not attending every game doesn't mean you aren't a"diehard fan".

Hey thanks for the well wishes everyone!

I salute everyone who went tonight, it didn't look pleasant but it was a win you'll remember no doubt.

My foxtel recording ran out with 3mins to go, but we got the win so its hard to be upset

So the new boy is 1/1, could be the lucky charm that starts our winning streak! (No pressure little man)

Not great numbers wise but the atmosphere was sensational...not many Cowboys fans of course and the players really seem to appreciate the crowd support and I loved it (of course I was in the stands)

It was a great crowd given the conditions. Very vocal and I'm sure the players really appreciated it. Every person in the crowd deserves a pat on the back for showing everyone else what it means to be a "supporter".

1 congratulations Winnipeg!
2 congratulations to everyone who made the effort to get out there in those conditions. Looked almost as bad as canberra last year! The crowd came across as really strong on tv.

And, oh boy, how did we celebrate when we won!!! I sit up in the stand and have never seen it go off like that. I almost fell down the stairs I was jumping around so much. No voice today but worth absolutely every minute of it. Hats off to everyone not undercover. It was bucketing down.
Well done Tigers.

How good was it! I had a feeling something special may happen and that it did. We never really looked the likelier of the winners but every time it came back on the screen as "NO TRY" I just sensed a "what if?" moment. From what we displayed against Souths and how we thought on our try line last night. Well, wow! Kudos to the boys but also Kudos to all you guys who got along last night.

This week on twitter Wests Tigers asked for favourite Leichhardt Oval moments, I stated the moment the crowd roars in unision knowing the Tigers have secured a win. Got to experience it yet again last night. That moment at the end was delirium giving the past 7 weeks.
