It was a lovely night; the match promised to be a cracker. It was our final home match. The club had granted half-price tickets to member guests. The players delivered... and yet less than 13,000 turned up to watch. Granted, there were less Bonco fans than there are Dog trolls on this site, but why aren't we getting more to Brookie? It's not the ground, which is the best to watch a match at, and it's not the lack of comfort because there were empty seats in the stands. What I think is happening is that TV is diluting attendances. Unless you are a die-hard supporter, like all of us here are, TV has made it too comfortable to stay home and watch. I read today about Channel Nein's boasts to make the coverage 3D, with holograms etc that, they claim "will make it like you're sitting on the sideline at the game." Personally, I love the atmosphere at Brookie, and get butterflies in the lead-up to the match as if I'm about to play. What are your thoughts on the future of attracting crowds at Manly matches?
