They had a good little story about HSH on Ten News tonight (you'd hope so even though they didn't mention anything about it being on One). Hodge was talking it up at the team hotel and Maher's Fleet team did a photo shoot today down at Glenelg. Farley looked in surprisingly good nick but obviously on court is something else and Ken Cole, Schenscher & Forman were all joking around.

Oh dear lord....there's quite literally about 5 people in the stands!
Was this advertised in Adelaide? Is it school holidays there at the moment? If not, what was the thinking behind these dates?
Surely I can't be the only one wishing for rain for the next week so I have a good excuse for staying in...

Is there a box score on the interwebs somewhere?

Got some good players playing with plenty of imports etc... Watching the first game now and it looks crap! Like pick up games. There needs more running and show time.

It wont stay afloat if the comp ends in the same way its started.

Walking into an arena with a crowd that size would be rather demoralising for the teams. This audience would be dwarfed by an ABA crowd.
I don't blame these guys for being a little flat. It's also the first game of a fairly intensive week.

One HD reception terrible here in Cairns today - probably because it's still raining... Was looking forward to watching.

Game seems pretty good to me for a midday game in a week long tournament. These guys wouldn't have played at midday since they were teenagers I'm guessing.

Not sure what everyone else was expecting but if it is anything like other tournaments (only experience I've had is juniors and U/20's etc.) then the early games are generally slow and the games later on (when the $175k is on the line) I would think will be a little more intense. Thus larger crowds.

Who cares anyway? Adelaide normally sells out or is close to anyway. If this was Sydney then maybe raise an eyebrow.....

Decent enough game.

maybe the organisors. If it isn't profitable then the liklihood of it happening again is pretty slim.

Lmao I know its still early, only second game starting shortly, but oh boy, the crowd numbers are just totally cringeworthy!
I'd put it at like 100!
Lets hope it picks up as the day/tournament rolls on.
Julius trying to get a bit more controversy going with his postmatch interview with Homicide - will be an interesting game when the Monarchs meet the Fleet!

Maybe Hodge will 1 up himself and push Maher over before stomping on his name on the back of his jersey.

I think this second game should be a much better contest. Looking forward to seeing Ben Allen in action, and hoping to maybe relive some of the highlights that Bennett Davison has laid down in Australia in the past.

Damn! I was hoping it was gonna be the ex-Dockers player!

But yes as you said, should be a much better/closer fought game, looking forward to see if Lisch puts on some freakish ball-handling moves!

LOL.

Yeah the crowd numbers are pretty poor - despite the holidays and all, I don't think we expected any better given the time/day though. Gotta say that the product is set up quite well though.

Big game from Graeme Dann with 20 points, but the monarchs are favourites for a reason. Hodge voted man of the match.
I like that the players are all having a turn at sideline interviews. I was wondering why Ronaldson looked so rumpled...I was feeling sorry for him that he didn't have a ONE HD shirt, but then realised he did...he just looked like he'd slept in it!

Some box scores would be good!

Ronaldson looks like he is in better shape since he finished in NZ than when he was playing there during the year

He misread the Huge Steaks Tournament flyer and has been disappointed since arriving in SA.
