Dogs savage Swans at Manuka

By johnboy - 26 February 2007 24

The AFL has a match report of the 97-70 defeat of the Sydney Swans by the Bulldogs at Manuka Oval on Saturday. Llamafrog was in the thick of the action and sent in a pic from his camera:

The AFL puts the crowd at 5,557. Did everyone have a good time?

What’s Your opinion?

Essendon supporter S4anta, done by Carlton, oh the shame. Get a Collingwood / Essendon match at Bruce and then you can make an assessment of who wants to see what code!!

The footy is back this weekend with the Western Bulldogs v Richmond Tigers, playing at Manuka Oval again.

I think it will get around 7000 or so this time round.

As for Bundybear…Collingwood? Eddie Maguire? Who are you trying to kid???

I used to go to Cosmos games, where the crowd figure of 2-3000 was optimistic to say the least.

Stan – your use of the Olympic soccer as an example belies that fact that people attended as they wanted to feel part of the Olympics when they realised every good ticket to anything cost a small countried GDP, or were given to corporates. I went to a frigging hockey game between 11th and 12th and some other debacle (thanks ex-ho of the time) where 12000 people turned up to be part of the ‘experience’. Read nothing into them…

Lets face it – AFL dominates Victoria, SA, NT, Tas and WA. League dominates Sydney and Brisbane. Union is watched by ex-private school boys and corporate types with superiority complexes who see themselves better than the hoi polloi who follow league.

And soccer has developed into a serious contended with the A-League being the most popular summer football code in Australia through a good balance of limited product (keep the punters wanting more), good marketing esp in Melbourne, and the removal of ethnic based rivalries uniting cities in the case of the Victory and Syd FC…
