Three things we learned tonight from the Melbourne derby.
3. Thursday night football is a hit
Despite its criticism, a decent crowd turned out for the game considering the timing, weather and location.
The main stand was full and plenty of fans were standing up.
The TV ratings will be interesting but nothing better than a Thursday night watching W League with a hot cuppa or a nice meal.
Thursday night is supposed to be W League night and judging by the social media chatter, it is proving popular with the fans.
Free to air coverage needs to happen to get more fans.
With a finish like tonight and with so many stars on show, we need as many people to watch this.
