4,000 went.

I know you lot believe it was like 20,000 but you can count the bays in the TV for a dose of reality if you want …

Years later, I was in a pub for a
Parra away game once and some bloke tried to tell me he was sitting in my bay full of all his mates at that game, utter nonsense lol .

However, it was the best away experience I’ve had (in Australia) and the best away support (in Australia) I’ve seen for that GF.

Also proves a point – Wanderers will always choke in a Grand Final no matter how many fans turn up 😂

Funny story involving WU away fans last season, all five of them.

WU go 1-0 up and there’s banta between the five in the away bay who suddenly make themselves heard and The Den (que – “you only sing when you’re winning” and “we all live where go on holiday, go on holiday”).

Roar equalise and the Orange haired Richard Roar leads a charge over to the away bay, sending security in to a panic, and only to see the goal disallowed while they’re being ushered back to “safety”.

Five minutes later a retaliatory charge is led by the WU fans, only for all but one to pull out leaving the leader to dash a solitary and lonely charge in front of the Den – never seen someone run so fast.

Security, outnumbered by the away fans anyway, are now torn – do they stay and protect the four WU fans or leave post and recover the solo runner who is on the far side of The Den with no safe passage back?

More stewards are obviously summoned from Pokie duty and the solo runner is reunited with his mates and the game concludes with security surrounding the WU5 3 to 1 …. and as the game ends (2-1 win, yay Danzaki in the 94th minute) the Den end are forced the long way out of the ground much to the annoyance of everyone (not a big crowd, but …).

Next game up – the away bay is moved to the opposite end of the stand away from the Den.

The mighty travelling army of WU having altering the layout of Dolphin Stadium for ever lol

Pre-season results against NPL clubs so far:

5-0
5-0
3-0

And their youth team just finished second in the NPL and above Lions … so yeah, keep fishing.

The main point is the .\ logo was successfully registered before it was launched (13 categories?) so it wasn’t a stuff up – it was a media beat up.

100+ comments already, talking about an Advertisement for football that itself has had hundreds of thousands of views already … and generated numerous positive news articles.

Tell me again how APL aren’t getting this right 👍 ⚽

Good. Because you won’t be winning anything this season 😂

C10 prefer Dolphin, they’re smart.
Brisbane Roar fans are “responsible” for two of the most over used stock photos in football:
No. 1 – is/was photos with rows and rows of empty seats at suncorp
No. 2 – is The Den at Dolphin shrouded in smoke.
TEN are smart – they want to create a feeling, an emotion, around the AL … you don’t get emotional about 40,000 empty seats.

Passionate football people won’t always agree, but they will always like football 👍

I am too. The FFA cup needs to grow or die – having a Round of 64 with local derbies only, followed by R32 also local will help imo

It’s not Roars fault the FFA keep expanding in NSWs and VIC 😁

Well, it needs more than 20 million. But keep watching.

Great story ….

No, it wasn’t me – I wouldn’t have just ripped up one 😂

They could move in to Logan – hear there’s 4 pitches going begging

Why wouldn’t they focus on the Brisbane market then?

On tv ratings Brisbane regularly out rates all but Victory and SFC?

It is splitting hairs if you’re challenging the statement “marketing does work”.

Uncovering the brilliance of Network 10’s new A-League promo

Don’t disagree. But getting rid of Clive Palmer meant getting rid of GCU.

I suspect the next QLD club will be GCU.

The problem though Chris is football is marginalised by the media in general in Australia, so when the football media marginalises parts of football it compounds the problem.

Yea the big clubs in Europe get most of the coverage, but the small clubs get a fair shout too which does not happen here.

So if we want football to grow we have to support football … not just support football in NSWs and VIC

I’ve a feeling that statement was said five years ago though.

There’s no doubt they have potential but so do several other clubs.

WSW have an allienated fan base, and when they had a fan base they alienated others (probably the reason they never grew it snd languish is 7th place in that survey) so it’s hard to see how they will grow to realise their potential.

You do know Roar played in the NSL right?

No?

Why do I bother 😛

You must have been gutted when Roar knocked you out of the Cup.

No it’s not, you’re splitting hairs and being pedantic. Marketing, at its highest level, does work. That is a fact.

Wherher an individual piece of marketing works is (I agree) another question but marketing does work – that is a fact – and saying it doesn’t be because one piece failed is like saying vaccines don’t work because finding got seriously ill from COVID etc.

My main point though was this modern trend that if it doesn’t work for me, then somethings wrong with it – which is utter nonsense

There was even an article yesterday about fans lauding this Ad, so clearly done like it — what ever happened to saying “it doesn’t do it for me, but that’s okay”??
