Ticketek have just released a whole heap of areas up for purchase now so looks like it won't be as big as predicted. Hope we get a bunch of last minuters jumping on board. 

They were always going to eventually put the back of Q49-Q55 on sale at some point.

The other areas of the ground that they have release have about 30 tickets available for purchase.

It will still be north of 75K.

I can't wait to spend 48 minutes post game trying to get inside Richmond station and waiting for a train

What a time to be alive! 

48 mins! you wish! maybe if you left before the end of game, but then you'd run into all the swans supporters

We had 91k in 2018 against an interstate team when we played Geelong.

So doable.

Correct. It’s easier to get to Sydney

Does anyone know the crowd size tonight ?

Was it just me, or was there a lack of atmosphere at the game? The crowd roused slightly when we kicked 3 on the trot, but that was it. A bit disappointing really.

78k

I thought the cheer squad did an exceptional job all game, and the crowd lifted when we got going early in the 2nd and 3rd. The problem was if you take those bursts out we got comprehensively beaten. Not the crowds fault.

78k.

The crowd was fine. Sydney had way more to cheer about and outside of bursts we were sunk in our seats watching a pretty average outing. 

Swans silenced the crowd. Pretty simple really.

Not blaming the crowd or the cheer squad. It was just a weird vibe given it was our first final at home since 2018.

Agree 100% the whole side from the punt road goals to the end of the members was rocking early in the third particularly after the Fritsch and sparrow goals.

Yep I've said it in the other thread, I thought the crowd was pathetic (where we were sitting anyway). There were a few of us trying to gee up the crowd but they were just sitting there like stunned mullets. No idea how to generate some atmosphere, you don't just cheer when a goal is kicked you cheer to rev the team up and create some energy, create some sense of hostility for the opposition. Melbourne supporters just sit there mute.

Edit - It was a good turnout though, a touch under 80k is a great result I think.

The biggest roar of hositlity of the night was when Harmes flattened Lloyd. Felt massive for them.

It's hard to gee up people who don't want to be gee'd 🙁

The problem seemed to be that whenever we gained momentum we made unforced errors or gave away stupid free kicks that let them back in for easy goals. Maddening to watch and took away our energy.!!

Glad to hear someone with a clue comment. The “we just sit there” stereotype is a myth. 2018 was as loud as I can remember. The game style tonight from both sides made for a snore fest. Stark contrast to last night’s Richmond v Bris match.

For mine the experience with the crowd was mixed.

Some really loud and vocal ferals, some others more calm but riding the wave on the 2nd and 3rd. And even the ones sitting next to me that gave me the looks every time I jumped of my seat or booed the old flopper Franklin.

Not like 2018 but much better than your average crowd from this year's H&A

Difficult to get the crowd enthused when you are comprehensively beaten for 3 qtrs. 

Comprehensively beaten? It was 2 goals the difference at 3/4 time. I think some Melbourne supporters have forgotten they're not their to watch the Harlem Globetrotters. Your role as a supporter is to support not sit on your hands and only cheer when something good or exciting happens.

The crowd last night was weak as [censored].

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
