i asked a while back will it benefit the giants town being in the premier league....

well has it???

dont see ticket sales going up , only see us having to move games for them

yes we have a had fresh lick of paint at the ground and new chairs for the players to sit in (some fans have had their seat removed completely from the stand at the back of the kilner bank)

so as predicted i didnt many positives from town gaining promotion for us as a club.

wait till the rugby season starts... and the football team start losing at home, we will be getting the old 'ruining the pitch' stuff again :roll:

its quite clear they have no respect for us as a club and would rather us not be there at all..

Agreed, if anything it's hindered us as we we're trying to sell cheap season tickets to the floating sporting public who we're always going to choose cheap premier league football over the rugby.
I'm pretty sure we will have lost corporate money too as local companies want to be associated with a premier league football team.
I even know a couple of Fartowners who bought a town season ticket and have gone to watch them this season instead of us....the only people it does benefit is fans of both clubs.

As a Giants fan i have yet to see any evidence that having a premier league football team in the same town has benefitted us.

My information ( and it’s good ) is that there are approx 1800 like your mate which is worrying. I follow both clubs always have and will continue to do so at the moment there is no doubt where the interest is and that is hard for the Giants. What def won’t work though is trying to do exactly the same thing and putting prices up to £24 for walk up will not get any floating support even if we start well. New ideas are needed badly

We are 300 adults down on last year, whether they've jumped on the premier league bandwagon or simply got fed up with the Giants/rugby league we will never know.

A spruced up ticket office.... and then giants are kicked out and have to sell tickets via the shop we are squeezed into a corner of.
Nope can’t see any benefits-

Be careful though or we will be called jealous and envious and told we should support both.

300 down on adult season tickets is a big figure... two i know of havent renewed.

would have to think the pull of football has something to do with it aswell as a lack of publicity on sky sports for the giants and a relative two poor seasons on what we have had previously

knew towns promotion was not good for us but some would not have it
