Sunday Mail crowd numbers was 2,600 I think.

I was there the Western side was packed to me it looked a lot more than 2,600.

Great to read Lairdy had a final word about the FARCE the SANFL has become as mentioned in previous posts LOL.



SPOT ON.
SANFL 2000 - 2011 Central District 12 consecutive Grand Final appearances and 9 Premierships.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFF.

Hit em hard let them get up and hit em again.

2,600.....should have been 6-7,000 min. for what Roy has given those supporters.

Poorly promoted by the club, not to mention the no presentations for the last game of the year.

Poorly promoted by the club?
I reckon half of South Australia knew it was Roy's last game,
all the promotion in the world wouldn't have worked,
the air of apathy toward the SANFL out north is huge,
the majority are fed up with the way the SANFL is run now, they've been turned off & now have other interests,
combine this with the fact that Roy wasn't even going to be there made it very difficult.

Throw the gates open, give people a reason to go along, get a ground swell of support and finish the year on a high.

Winning regularly will always be the best incentive to attend for the non-rusted on supporters. Dogs like every other club would have lost many you’d think once the good times dried up

I think the crowd was bigger than it would have been if it wasn't Roy's last game. As stated above the grandstand side of the ground was fuller than normal and the bar and function room were much better attended than a "normal" game. I recognised many supporters that haven't been as regular attending this game.

Not marketed at all, mainly because Roy did not want a Big Deal. The pulling of Presentations certainly disappointed many. Did it effect the attendance? Not sure.

Not necessarily so I noticed with our last 3 premiership wins since 2009 attendances had/have been steadily declining then the SANFL FARCE of 2013 alienated many more SANFL purists then toss in the economic factors and the closure of Holdens the North is ROOTED.

Also SANFL not giving a stuff about our competiton this year ie faaarking byes in a ten team comp what the FAARK ???? we do not get to see ya team play 2 to 3 weeks at a time cos of the KOWTOWING to the AFL .

I also have read no more free passes to finals to Club Season and Home match ticket holders SANFL can go and get stuffed.


Should one of these AFL INTERLOPERS win the Grand Final SANFL will lose quite a few of what little followers they already have.

So FAAARKKK OFFF SANFL.
SANFL 2000 - 2011 Central District 12 consecutive Grand Final appearances and 9 Premierships.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFFF.

In other words, a crowd equalling the last standalone of both the Woodville and Torrens clubs in 1990, and two to three times larger the last standalone SANFL game of its most successful club at Glenelg in 2013. I was at the latter, and saw first hand what the final siren meant to the Port people there that day.

We can only speculate, but if the above is any indication, then the Club was always going to be pushing poo up an incline to get a more 'respectful' size crowd considering the fixture - let alone anything close to the above, irrespective of the nature of the occasion in the Club's history.

The so called "Family Friendly" outer, which tends to be populated by more opposition fans than locals, had fewer of them than usual, hard to get a sense of occasion out there at all unfortunately. (By contrast, one group of non regulars on the outer wing couldn't contain their man-crush on Nick Gillard once the margin was over 10 goals into the last, but I digress).

Proud as punch to have been a part of the 3/4 time on-field crowd sendoff for Roy as he left the field.

I am not a fan of the AFL Reserves teams but I bet Glenelg fans will pack it out GF Day and wont care who they beat . Yeah it pi...s me off but stop the whinge and support your club. If that doesn't work then members should pull rank at their AGM's .
Next year those AFL reserves could be weak.
Lot of complaining when they beat your own club.

There northern end had a fair few more than we normally get. Me and a couple of mates stand in the north eastern pocket each week and most games this year the crowd there has been piss poor.
