    That 75% is wrong.

    If you take the 26,267 as the capacity of TP and 8008 as the capacity of MP, then the maximum attendance is 26, 267 times 7 plus 8,008 times 4, or 215,908. The given attendance, 142,267 is 66% of that.

      GAA league crowds have gone through the roof in recent years. Go back 20 years and they were lucky to draw a couple of thousand. Now days the Dubs average over 20k, Mayo over 10k. Kerry also averaged over 10k this year. Bearing in mind there is little away support that's massive for a county of less than 150k.
      Look, that's impressive but those are the top teams and barring Dublin there's no competition. Dublin is inflated by the Croke Park games and they can all charge low prices because the expenses are small.

      I do take your point that my "what about the league" point is contradicted by the numbers though.

      Just to expand on this, and I realise I'm shifting the goalposts here, the GAA have invented a format where they have two intercounty competitions with a short span where every game means something. The Pro14 doesn't have that because it's a long-format league where individual games don't have the same importance. I hope that makes sense, it's late.

        Not even remotely close for the Cheetahs game 5/6k there and Ulster 7/8k. The evidence was there on front of you if you attended those games and QF.

        Significantly bigger crowd for the quarter final against Benetton and the attendance just broke 10k. What was the difference? The Benetton QF didn't include season tickets. That is what a real 10k in the ground looks like.

          The orignial article is here and it says:
          • Includes quarter-finals and semi-finals – the final is not included as it is held at a neutral venue. Due to the Conference A & B structure of 21 rounds in the Pro14, some teams were allotted 10 league home games during the league stage, while others received 11. Cardiff Blues and Dragons each gave up a home game in the final round of fixtures for Judgement Day, leaving them with nine home games. These figures do not include the final (at a neutral venue) or the European Champions Cup play-off game.

            Yes, Munster had ten home, regular season, games six in Thomond and four in Musser. Add in the Quarter Final game and that makes seven in TP and four in MP.

                      Unlike Bishop Brennan, I'm not required to refer to it by it's proper name.
