Look I feel ya. I also made the trip but I totally get why many didn’t.
Firstly if you don’t have a home and away membership like me, why would you pay to watch what you know will be a bad game? Secondly that stadium is awful.
Thirdly this start time is a joke, I got home after 9. If you have kids, forget it. And lastly when I have to wait 32 minutes at Southern Cross for a train on Saturday evening after a game of footy, I understand why people stay home. It is a complete disgrace. Almost 2 hours to get home today and I live 45km away not 200km away.
