Re: Roosters fan numbers
Back in the old days, before plastics and house music and new Labour were invented, the NSWRL wouldn't allow the GF to be televised live unless it was a sellout. It was the SCG back then so about 50K tickets. In 1980, the Chooks played the Dogs and, to guarantee it was live on TV, the Roosters' sugar daddy bought about 20,000 tickets, three days before the GF and gave them away. That's how many Roosters fans there are. They only have 4 clubs in their Junior District and the only NRL player I can think of who comes from that area is Blake Ayshford.
