Giants leader blames poor crowd on club’s lack of ethic fans.
Greater Western Sydney Giants coach Kevin Sheedy has gone on a strange tirade in the wake of his side’s 135-point loss to the Adelaide Crows.
Speaking after the match where just 5,830 people turned up to see their first home game of the year, the respected coach blamed the fact they don’t have the “immigration department” handling fan recruitment like the Western Sydney Wanderers.
“It’s a pity because that’s how many turned up after a pretty solid performance against Essendon last week,” he said.
“So, it’s just going to go and tell everybody how tough it’s going to be to build this club. It’s as simple as that.
“We don’t have the recruiting officer called the immigration department recruiting fans for Western Sydney Wanderers – we don’t have that on our side.
“We’re actually going to start up a whole new ball park and go and find fans because that’s what happens when you bring a lot of people through, channel into a country and put them into the west of Sydney and they build a club like that one year and all of a sudden they’ve got 10,000 fans and probably 20,000 going to a game.”
