#1 Bring 'em back!

If we are serous about being a brand and an Ealing brand, then get the cowgirls back.....and see what Chris Warrens up to whilst we're at it...... :D
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:

I am not sure that in these politically correct times The Cowgirls would be acceptable.
The thoughts have been to have Street Dance type of dance troupe. We need some entertainment at half time, that is for sure.
Chris Warren I believe is back in Australia..

I was recently called a snowflake........those that have met me know that ain't true.....the cowgirls were not "objectified"...they really were part of the club and I believe would be a gateway (through dance projects as you mentioned) to getting more kids into the club........

I am with you CMG as far as The Cowgirls go. What was good about them was that they were very professional.
As one who has been able to travel to a lot of away games. Some of the fare dished up in the Championship has been dreadful. In truth it is embarrassing and is really not worth putting on.
If we are to have dancers they have to be to a good standard.

Or you could have the schoolkids do it as a dance troop. Who remembers the Harlequin Hearts (I think they was called) who followed the Cowgirls

And that picture explains why in today’s PC UK the cowgirls coming back is highly unlikely.

I think having a cheer squad is a luxury and the cowgirls as they were is passe and out of step with the culture. If it were a dance squad/cheer group to the level of American college football etc. that's a different story.

Also, agree on Chris Warren - he was a great announcer that really made it feel like a family experience and he knew his rugby league.

A few of the Harlequins hearts ended up at Crystal Palace football club who ended up starting a proper dance troupe who are still going strong auditioning every year for new dancers.They girls now end up doing other sports as well i.e NFL at Wembley and Twickenham as a proper business.

They are not sleazy and the little kids boys and girls love them as well as the men.They go around doing community events and some of their videos on Youtube have had millions of hits.Ideal for marketing.
