Werribee supporters dont travel to the city have a look at the finals crowds over the years in which they have taken part. In fact for the size of Werribee and surrounds and its remoteness from the city they get very ordinary crowds at home and always have.

[quote="footyman"][quote:fd3bd577d9="MinkaBeaver"] give spectators ballot papers with the Footy Record and have them vote for a man of the match award (maybe announced during the week with a prize for one lucky entrant).[/quote] I like that idea. Good one.[/quote] It's definately a great idea, those who go to the games would feel like they some sort of involvement. It's good to be back, have been a little out of the loop following Werribee's early exit from the finals and no I'm not a sore loser.

[quote="footyman"]I'd have thought Werribee were one of the better drawing sides in the competition. As for the GF if the VFL went to the MCG I'd like to see $5 entry as that'd be the best hope of getting a decent crowd. But then the game loses atmosphere if the crowd is small (eg Waverley in 2000). And also the end of game celebration on ground and kick to kick which at least the crowd can do at Princes Park.[/quote] The crowds we get are always decent in my opinion and if they clash with a Bulldogs game or local WRFL football they are smaller. Playing home games on a Sunday can definately be better for us because it doesn't clash with WRFL football.

Fair points on Werribee, I reckon they give a lot of tickets away to their home games, seems like little Auskick kids make up a quarter of the crowd down there at their games. Haven't seen huge turnouts at away games from their fans.

I attended a game at Werribee on the day of a past players re-union. There was as many (maybe more) past players than "ordinary" supporters.

But it's good to introduce them to a level of football other than the AFL in my opinion.
