Jurrah lights up China match

30 million television audience was reported on one of the news bulletins in Melbourne following the match. GSP alone apparently reaches an audience of 30+ million. Actual figure will never be known because it is an estimate, but even Australian broadcast figures are estimates (as was the crowd figure at the match).

Many things are estimates but I guess there are degrees to how rough the numbers are. 7000 was an estimate for the crowd by the AFL based on seeing the crowd, another media source said about 6000, so same ballpark. But at this stage the 30 million does sound like something just based on averages (even the Melbourne TV report), in which case for all we know everyone could have turned off when the footy came on. Australian broadcast numbers are informed estimates based on statistics collected from electronic surveys. So I'm much more comfortable if we emphasise the "potential" audience. Perhaps that's just me being boringly conservative.

The News Presenter on which ever channel I was whatching here in Sydney said that the crowd was kept to a minimum for security reasons ?
