At home with the Bullets

January 4th, 2006

Coming home from another great win for the Bullets, it struck me that the part of the season I’ve seen has been great. After a few early hiccups, they’ve won consistently, beating more highly-fancied teams with ease. The problem has been that, in the away games I haven’t seen, they’ve lost just as consistently. Tonight, for example, coming off a 30+ point loss at Wollongong, they beat an impressive Sydney Kings outfit by 13.

What accounts for such a huge difference between home (8-3) and away (4-10) performance. I’d like to think it was the crowd. But even if the days when the Brisbane Entertainment Centre was referred to as “The Library”, teams with more enthusiastic crowds seem to have less of a home-court advantage.

    What has been the average attendance at Bullets home games in recent times? Has it plateaued, or is the trend since the mid to late 80s still in tact?

    Obviously, numbers now are below when they played at Boondall. But it’s my impression that they’ve been increasing since I’ve lived here in Brisbane.

    Shame on you PrQ for pushing this decadent American sport on us Aussies. Show some pride man and support the Bribane Lions :)
