    Perhaps the punters are looking for a no-rainer?
    Alas it is no more. Seems carlton mid-strength is now in vogue because the average punter can't be trusted to monitor their own drinking.

    Let me know if it's still not working for you, and I'll get in touch with the Giants.

    Too late Jenny, I have already bought our tickets. And I am a member of the Swans, and accessed things through the Swans site, so.... I didn't know I wasn't supposed to not be a Swans member to get the Swans discount

    Spotless is a great ground, so unless it's a sellout i think we can safely conclude that the pull out of western sydney by the swans had nothing to do with ANZ ( which still managed 19k swans fans at its worst) and all to do with swans fans irrational hate of any thing west of pyrmont.

    Straw man Barry.

    If it was a swans home game there it would sell out, not withstanding the fact that it probably will anyway now that gws is a real game not a bye

    Straw man?. Crowd figures are based on people who actually go.
    Swans fans don't travel over the bridge. We've been over this many times. Many are proud of the fact.

    You're equating people not liking a stadium and people not wanting to go to an area and trying to justify that position via two incongruent events.

    Yes, straw man.

    Your assertion was that if the game doesnt sell out then it the pull back from homebush isnt to do with fans thinking anz stadium was crap, and is simply an issue of geography.

    This game is not a swans home game and many people would choose not to go for a range of factors that wouldnt occur if it was a swans home game. More to the point, using crowd numbers for an away game at spotless doesnt validate any opinions or conclusions relating to ANZ stadium.

    Suggesting that correlation, is what one might term a straw man argument.

    All that aside, the game will likely sell out as the overwhelming response to spotless has been positive.

    What are these variety of factors that would stop the typical SCG crowd of 35000 going to a tòp of the table clash in a year we are premiership favorite?

    Barry - mate - this thread was started as a public service announcement for those looking at getting tickets for this upcoming match. I know I shouldn't let trolling get the better of me but sheesh - give it a rest. We know what your thoughts are on this matter. I'm sick of reading this sort of carry on on this site. Just let it go please.

    Its an important board announcement in that it is exposing many of the lies pedalled on this very board.
