  • Watching Crowdless Games on TV

    After watching the Thursday night game for just 20 minutes I’m surprised at how boring the footage is without the crowd and noise in the background. It’s going to be a long season.

    I do miss the atmosphere but it's better than nothing

      It's also weird going from the bogan penny fans booing all game for penalties to nothing, some teams may struggle without the crowd influence

        I wonder if penalties awarded will drop without the crowd influence. One good thing to come out of this. Let the game flow.

          I think it will. Partly because the guys will see the ref as the boss out there and hear him easier.

          I was surprised how that half of footy had the same level of intensity. Hope that continues.

          It's a double edged sword for the players....Some will thrive without the pressure of a crowd. Others might lose focus without the crowd driving them. The performers.
          Choose hope over fear.

            I just give credit to the NRL for continuing to play the comp. Its going to be a rocks or diamonds result for them.

                Most games are pretty boring tbh. But without crowd atmosphere it's borderline unwatchable.

                I reckon the NRL should cut its loses and cancel the season before irreparable damage is done.

                Because this is a travesty.

                      BTW how many of you have had wits hit you up with the 'Playing to 500 shouldn't affect the Roosters' line?

                        Many. And I respond by telling them our average crowd was the second highest of any Sydney team last year with 17,000. Only Parra had more with 18,000. Souths averaged 15,000 but very few were human.

                          Didn't mind it. You can hear stuff you normally don't.

                              Players aren't interested in taking a pay cut, apparently.
                              V'landys said that every game needs to be played, ...club games, SOO series, finals series, and GF...or the NRL and the Game will be kaput.

                              Crowdless games, all fine by me if that's what it takes for the Clubs, NRL, and the Game to survive.
