They would be hoping for 15,000 becuase if they don't get at least 15,000 this will be the last time the GF will be held at the Docklands.

The vouchers given away will probably not count for many turning up.
Even if they gave them away you might only get a small ratio that would be bothered.
Who will be there ?
It will be old Preston, roosters, Carlton, North Melbourne supporters, old vfa nuts like myself, footy followers including the ones that want a fix and maybe a few just deciding to turn up something to do. Throw in a few from the tac cup that will hang around.
Not forgetting club officials and stalwarts of course.

Maybe the digruntled fans that failed to get a AFL GF ticket might turn up ??

We will find out the answers tomorrow night.

Digs how many busloads are coming from Ballarat ?[/quote]

At least 6 at this stage george plus a special train carriage, so hopefully we will make a bit of noise.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

This angers me greatly, I am forever correcting every second person to not call the VFL competion "the reserves" simply because it devalues our great competition.

True, but I think they did because to appease the big wigs in Sydney because one should remember that Nine have the free to air broadcast rights for NRL games.

What did everyone think of the almost double page spread in today's Herald Sun, I think it's not too bad actually and there wasn't too much of an emphasis place solely on AFL listed players either which is nice.
