Plus the Dubs are actually poorly supportered once the bandwagoners fall away

Thats not true, always had great support during the league games that i was at.

Define great support? and take into account the population that Dublin have while doing it.
Must have been 1,500 Monaghans in the Hyde last Sunday.
2.5% of their population.
Equivalent of 35,000 Dublin fans.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

I thought 20,000 was still a fairly healthy attendance given the weather, the fact that it was being portrayed Tyrone had no chance and the fact it was st patricks weekend with a lot of other distractions. I think if you went back to the fixture 4 years ago that was played on st patricks weekend there was only 16/17000 at it.

But I do think the gaa are missing a huge trick on a game like this. They have proved in the past that when they market a match like this and turn it into an event they get huge crowds. Why they didn't try to tie it in with the st Patrick celebrations I can't work out. Have a big parade and lights show after the game and market it properly. You'd have got loads of tourists and people going for the event and it would have been a great pre st patricks day celebration.

Or why didnít they just play it in Parnell Park.

I'd imagine with current health and safety you wouldn't get much more than 10,000 in parnell park. So straight away you'd have been turning half the crowd away. I personally think we should be encouraging more people to go to league games not turn them away. If that game on Saturday had been marketed right with an event after the game you could easily have got 50,000 at it.

make it all ticket in Parnell and create a demand for tickets
create a buzz about it
better to have a full 10,000 than a paltry 20k in Croker

It's still turning away half the crowd. And why not aim to have 50,000 plus at it in croke park by turning it into an event and creating a buzz around it that way? We should be encouraging people to go to games like this not turn them away.

How about making football attractive to watch and we might get 25% more people going to all  games?

Football is evolving all the time. There has been plenty of good games in the league this year. And plenty of shocks with the Dubs beat three times. There has been lots of direct football played. Hopefully it continues come the championship.

No, have a mini St. Particks day Parade in Croke Park with fireworks. That will get the crowds out. 50K will come! Do the same the next day. Everybody loves the Club finals on St. Patricks day. Everybody wants to be in Croker to see the romance of the AI Club finals.

Do other sports have sideshows? Why can't we just sell the product? Is there no product to sell anymore?
