Mark from Brisbane said:What never ceases to amaze me is (and yes it IS a different day / time) but we can get 50,000 Manly fans turn up on the 5th of October when we play in a GF, but struggle to get 10K there when its a game TO GET to the GF.
I know a lot (like me) come from afar, or the country for the biggest of games but I would expect a bigger contingent from the "fair weather fans" group to swell the numbers.
Yes. Couldn't agree more. 2008 there were price tags still hanging off merchandise on the 'wagon brigade'. Hopefully they might give there new gear a test run tonight before the GF.
