.....from well oiled PR machine on the local radio and in all the papers, they've gone to looking for freebies......and the lowest crowd for a home game so far.....wheels spinning but maybe not connected....
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

They are a SME that made a loss last year that has its corporate HQ located in a rented shop with an apartment above it.............they have a marketing manager and a digital marketing manager with a combined experience tally of 9 years.....one from Cricket and Rugby Union the other earned in Rugby Union......note the recent press releases and events that talk purely about "RUGBY' but that are actually 95% about the other form of the game......they are neither big nor are they rich!

This obsession from fans of clubs who have had a 100 years to get it right but still cant get a higher attendance than a club from Canada is just getting laughable now

It's not an obsession but more of a collective commentary on how the emperor isn't actually wearing any clothes.

Toronto have just had their lowest ever gate in just their second match back in Toronto this year......the announced number was 3k down on their all time top figure and 2k down on the week before.....I suppose it's OK because nobody is actually paying for tickets, but if they were that would have been about CA$70,000 less on the gate this week as opposed to last.......good job they don't need to generate any revenue and pay their bills......phew.
