Id rather eat a doughnut at Minto Mall than drink a latte in Watson's Bay.

Pretty sure there was a similar article about Cronulla during last year's finals - nobody in NSW wanted to support them either!

You'd think Sydney would rally around the Roosters this weekend – especially when you consider the three remaining teams are from interstate – but that doesn't appear to be the case.
You would only think that if you knew nothing about Rugby League in Sydney

I've lived in Sydney all my life and out of the four teams.i would like to see Easts knocked out before any of the interstate teams. And that's saying something as I don't like the Broncos or Melbourne.
Unlikely..but I'd like to see the Cows go all the way.

My order of preference to win the big one - Cows, Broncos, Roosters, Storm. Go Queensland!

Rorters fans and members eh? How many of those are there? There might be more Cowboys supporters than Rorters fans there at Allianz.
Might be as embarrassing as GWS Giants crowd last weekend.

This is hilarious, the most powerful club in sydney begging for people to show up to their games. The roosters are a club that has never been popular, and no amount of winning will ever make them popular.
Sounds like a case for forced relocation to me......

As much as I dislike the Broncos, I could live with that.

If this is the reaction from the Tigers fans imagine the reaction from the Souths fans

No way could I bring myself to supporting the roosters.

They should move them to Mt Isa. Problem solved, another Qld, 1 less Sydney team.

Its the NRL=National Rugby League=good luck to all the finalists,if the Roosters lose and one of the other teams win,thats fine by me,hopefully Rugby League will come out the winner overall...

who will I support through the finals campaign=Cowboys,because they have done really well in the absence of their main playmaker these last few games and have been quite resilient in their efforts to win games....once again good luck to all.....
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Roosters own fans struggle to support them, what chance have they got of getting support from other teams members.

I'm supporting whoever playing the cocks.

no way do I want them to win the GF. but it would be funny if they did, then next (when Tedesco is there) they get the wooden spoon. That scenario has happen to them before.
Dream on.

As long as the Broncos and the Storm get bashed, il be happy. Go Roosters, now that Parra and the Panthers are out

I'd support North Korea before Easts.

As far as I am concerned the Chooks as a club are at the same level Manly were in the 70s and 80s and that is as low as you can get. I would not go out and support them even if Uncle Nick offered me a seat in the City Ford private box.

Love to see them flogged, but even with bugger all support they will win this weekend. Week off up against a team that must be close to physical burn out will probably see a comfortable win for the Bondi low life
