Rabbitohs v Raiders @ ANZ: 10,054
Dragons v Eels @ WIN Jubilee: 12,756
Panthers v Sea Eagles @ Centrebet: 11,844
Tigers v Cowboys @ Campbelltown: 13,059
Roosters v Bulldogs @ Allianz: 11,343

Not sure about you, but I will still say we have the best crowds in Sydney based on those numbers.

As I said, there was a more general effect over the weekend that impacted crowds at all games. The crowd was low by Wests Tigers standards in recent years. The crowd was actually right on the long term average for Campbelltown (13,044). For your reference, the long term Leichhardt average is 13,692.

exactly. The crowd was approximately in line with what you expect.

As for prices, I think $30 is pricey for a game of footy, but never think twice about paying it, that may change if I had a different fiscal situation.

Do junior players still get the pass?? when i was a kid we all got a pass and could go to any game without cost.

As for reducing prices, by how far?? How many people didn't go because the cost was $30, but would have went if it was $25 or $20?? Id think it would be relatively low.

If we go all the way to $10 entry we would prob fill the joint, but lose money on the day

I've said it three or four times but it seems to keep being ignored so I'll do it again: I feel very sorry for people who can't afford to go to games. I know some people can't afford $30. Some people also can't afford $5. It's a shame.

What I'm talking about is people who can afford it but choose not to. That's ok - each to their own. I also don't like phrases like "true fan" or whatever; hey, I only arrived in the country in 2006 so there are plenty of people who wouldn't consider me a "true fan". However, if you've got the money to go to games but you don't, and you make excuses for that decision along the lines of "it's too expensive/there's inadequate car parking/I can't see the big screen" then I'm afraid I don't have as much respect for you as a fan. Again, like you care.

What is your long term average? I think it's redundant factoring in figures any more than 3yrs ago to be honest.
That said, it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon.. 13k is pathetic.

origin affected every team, not just us. as for the prices, 30 dollars may not be much when compared to 25, but if u wanna take a whole family, then it will cost ya.

as for talking about piracy, movies, internet etc. you're at the wrong place, i'll redirect you:

NEVER!!!! [/end superhero voice]

I think you are right though, the league has a problem in attracting people through the gates in general. Bar the Broncos. What is it that the Broncos are doing to drive consistent numbers?

Not getting into a here vs there argument and ignoring the financials... would we see higher crowd numbers if we played all our games from LO or CS?

For me there is a lot more to attending a game of league. My old man and I love the trip out to LO, I remember him taking me there as a kid, the game catered to kids, it became a spectacle. I remember getting into the change rooms and hassling a man mountain Siro for an autograph when he just wanted to get changed lol... These are the reasons I attend games, not to hassle the man mountain while he changes lol but because I have fond memories and it becomes nostalgic.

The league only ever touches on the whole "be a true supported" tactics to drive memberships and attendance. The game needs to target families and have families install that same feelings that will create a sense of nostalgia I experience.

The league demographic have a high sense of loyalaty, to brands, foods, sports... everything. Use this sense of loyalty to drive long term behaviour.

Apart from having one team representing a city of 2,000,000 people I'm not too sure...

Settle down everyone, I have found the issue. It's real easy to fix too.

There were no cheerleaders at half time. Souths got rid of them and their game was the least attended of the round.

You're welcome WT. ;)
