Club With Highest Home And Away Attendances Deserves To Win Premiership

Victor P Taffa

Attendances for Home and Away fixtures of all 18 AFL Clubs for season 2017 saw Richmond Tigers attract the most number of people through the turnstiles with 1,024,751 people.

Richmond Tigers VS. Geelong Cats

In the Second Qualifying Final Richmond Tigers thoroughly deserved their 51 Point victory against Geelong Cats in front of 95,028 people at the MCG.

Victory now sets up a Preliminary Final appearance for the Tigers.

While watching the match in the first 2 quarters Editor Victor P Taffa said to fellow Richmond Supporter Club members was that if Geelong did not kick a goal by half time that the flood gates would open for Richmond.

For Richmond the flood gates did open in the last quarter with 7 goals kicked in the last term.

However for Captain Trent Cotchin and long serving players such as Jack Riewoldt, Dustin Martin, Alex Rance, Bachar Houli, among others this cannot be enough.

8 Quarters of Football remains for Richmond Tigers to get the job done in season 2017.

 

Geelong VS. Sydney

Geelong will meet Sydney in the second semi-final at the MCG on Saturday, September 16 and all self respecting football follower besides those of Sydney must hope that Geelong wins.

Sydney has the worst club song in the competition that is no better than a dirge. No one wants to have to listen to Sydney’s Club dirge dressed up as a Club Song on Grand Final day in season 2017.

Richmond Tigers Club Song is universally acknowledged as the best club song in the league.

Geelong could do everyone a favour and defeat Sydney in the second semi-final so at least in season 2017 people are not subjected to listening to Sydney’s Club dirge any longer than absolutely necessary.
