IB Rose, NT n To the wonderful Trisha at the Territory Wildlife Park. Hope you had a great day. You have always been a great guide to our kids and visitors at the park. PS. Sharing your bday with my sons 21st n Fannie Bay pulsating techno music 1am I not only judging you but your parents who seems didnt teach you right Letters LETTER OF THE DAY Poor crowd a national trend THE board of the AFLNT must have a close look at attendance numbers right around Australia before criticising numbers attending our last AFL game in the NT. AFL numbers are in decline across the states, a very worrying sign for the AFL and Andrew Demetriou. The introduction of Greater Western Sydney and Gold Coast Suns into the competition, making a league of 18 teams, has made for a great division in the competition ladder. AFLNT has pointed out the numbers attending the Melbourne v Port game may come under the scrutiny of the AFL and make our NT game an unviable prospect. On the other hand, Colling wood, the biggest sporting club in Australia, could only manage 8000 spectators when it played GWS at Skoda Stadium in Sydney (a GWS home game). Both Port Adelaide and Melbourne are not going to make the final eight, and the expectation of watching two AFL teams playing for the four points is taken away from spectators in the NT as teams play a young list and rest a few big name players. AFLNT must not be too harsh on ground numbers in the NT when AFL is struggling nationally. And to add to AFL woes, Melbourne has now been accused of tanking for the past four games.
