Warriors and Parramatta averaged over 15k last year and they came last and second last didnt they?

Fair enough, but its still a minority of teams, we are the majority. Get over it and support the team instead of laying the boot into it to satisfy your own agenda to make yourself feel better. Spot on @ what CB said. Happy bday btw mate.

They may lose, but they don't flounder at the bottom of the table
They are in 11th and only 2 points ahead of us (and + 175 f/a :lol: )

Get two teams in Brisbane and in the same position and see what happens then

In any case, when you have a city of 2.1 million people with one team to itself, you won't have dramas finding people to fill up Lang Park. Same with the Swans in the AFL, they manage to average 31,000 per game per year over the last ten years regardless of where they were on the ladder, keeping in mind every team is an out-of-state team until last year.

[quote="batboy"]Always the same excuses???
Last crowd at LO was worse... No Doubt. But in all reality
1: The weather was far worse at LO last out
2: It was on a Friday Night
3: Tickets were full price (Or $25 with a sausage)
4: There was only 2 games
5: We were playing a North Queensland Team


The Macarthur have the lamest excuses for not supporting "Their" Team I have ever come across
Its always the Ticket Prices - Saturday was $10
Value for money - 4 Quality Games
Lack of competition - Penrith is just up the road, Canberra is a top 8 team and a cruisy drive up the highway
WT's don't embrace the local community - Since round 2, They have been out there to no end, Promos for the local Juniors, Movie Nights, Instores... You name it.
(Next week when LO gets a bigger crowd, It will be because we won at Campbelltown)

I'm sick of the lack support for the Wests Tigers in the SWS being the Tigers Fault...
For the most part, Saturday was a great day for Footy.
4 Games from a local team at a bargain price
Local boy coming back from injury
The excuses are wearing a bit thin people....

Simple fact is, SWS aint what it was in 1987, Rugby League fans are the minority out there these days... It won't change anytime soon[/quote]


This has to be a gee up right? no one can be that ironic/moronic in one simple post by accident can they?

Soooo, if it didnt rain that faithful night LO would have been a sell out? cause, like you say "the weather was far worse at LO".
maybe if they had offered 10 bucks off the ticket price or even two free snags that would have led to another 5k turning up?

maybe if they had played a different team AND a few more games before the FG AND had it on a sunday afternoon...as long as it was sunny it would have been a bigger crowd.


So, just so we are clear. Cambo is full of weak excuses (still got a bigger crowd) but LO will draw a massive crowd if

-ITS PLAYED ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON
-CHEAPER TICKETS
-2 FREE SAUSAGES
- VS LOCAL TEAM..THATS DOING WELL
-ITS BETWEEN 15-22 DEGREE SMALL AMOUNT OF CLOUD COVER BUT DRY


Sweet.


anyways, it will be a non-issue soon enough. Once L/O is not part of our home ground we can finally move from this trash.

Some seem to feel they have to provide excuses for not going to those that did

The whole sham is pathetic, one big pissing contest

If youre life is that empty something like this makes you feel better then seek help.

Maybe we just need to accept OUR crowds are crap - period.
When the team starts playing better i know what will happen with the crowds, its a sure bet

Dont force your ethos onto others, we are all different
best post of this season.
thanks Ink :D

I prefer Campbelltown stadium...
For many different reasons!!
But I'm kinda getting sick of no-one turning up to games there and it being someone elses fault...
So far, Campbelltown has had the better Sheduling and better value for money this year, But the numbers aren't through the
gate... That is MY ONLY gripe. And yeah, LO has has some pretty p*ss poor crowds this year as well...
But I didn't see a potload of the inner west fans on hear citing Price, Lack of Competition or Our team doesn't love us for the poor crowd.
Mistake it for what you will, chest beating, Us v Them... Whatever.... It's more of a concern than anything else.
What I want to know... Is what more can WT's do to get at least one decent sized crowd at Cambo this year?
They're obviously trying to......

I don't see anyone on here saying that about Cambo either. I think you must have us confused with that other forum you frequent. Take it up with them.

Something about no government funding for an upgrade. Was while humpty was in charge. And the nrl stadium planning with the state government. As a balmain local hope it's not true but if it is sfs is a nice ground I won't have an issue going there to watch the team.

I think at this point i time an upgrade for LO would be like a band-aid on a bullet wound. No way will the government approve any upgrade of significance that will prolong our presence there. I don't know how much longer we have there, next yr is premature but id say within 10 yrs we'll be out of there.

Long quote haha. Yep next 5 years I say it will happen & keep the inner west fans happy sfs was marked down as LO replacement. The team will be better for it imo anyway. Sad but have to move with the times and into the future.

I love Leichhardt but if it is getting in the road of club profitability and long term stability, I support the move to the SFS, we actually get paid to play there.
