I was part of the alleged 12,900 who attended. I'll watch the replay later in the week.

37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!

I've been to afl games there (often involving stkilda and some interstate side) where the place looks empty and they claim its 16-20k.

I'm not sure if it's creative accounting or what.

I've just found out my recording didn't work. I'm assuming there will be no replay.

I wonder what C7 have learnt from this seasons coverage that will improve for the 2016 season.

Average metro audience of 150K for the GF. Outstanding first season on Ch7.

Some food for thought.

The 150k in Melbourne who watched the VFL GF is 25k LESS than watched the AFL Women's Match in August!

... but more than a number of AFL games throughout the year.

Coverage was a s good as its been all season, only slight complaint was they went to an add break shortly after the finish of the game which interrupted the flow of the post game celebration but overall the coverage throughout the season was very good.

Up until the Grand Final, crowds had been very good at North Port so is it the stadium or just the fact that very few people actually follow Box Hill and with Hawthorn having so much success there isn't the hunger from Hawks fans to go and see a VFL premiership live at the ground.

Not many like the stadium. Williamstown had very good support yesterday. A lot of noise and the Willy chant was in full voice.
