    Melb v Warriors on Anzac Day in Melbourne at 7pm.

    Same day across the road at the MCG (albeit at 2.40pm) - Essendon v's Collingwood. Guaranteed crowd of 85,000+

    A lot of Storm supporters are AFL supporters who wont want to back up with a game of league afterwards.

    Channel Nein obviously doesn't care if there is a crowd or not; it's all about who's watching it on TV. They'll just have their audio guy put on a crowd-noise track, like a laugh track, and try to mock up some atmosphere. Their scenic department will create visual crowds, like they did in Gladiators, and everything will be as real as reality television.
    Welcome to the future.

    how pathetic was the tigers v panthers game, turned it off after 20 minutes to play leggo with my son. Not much of an advertisement to the game. Channel 9 know sweet Fa about footy and games, and will drive more people to foxtel to get some decent footy. I honestly cant believe how un interested I am with what is served up these days. Its pathetic
