The bargain season tickets available this year were obviously designed as a loss leader so do you think the club will attempt a price hike in 2013?

If they do, then they may be slightly disappointed with the take up rates. What they should do is as way of an apology for what's gone on this year, offer all ST holders from 2012 a free renewal as well as a second one at 50% for a mate......

I wonder how big the club's database is? QPR's owner Tony Fernandes was on the radio and said that QPR had 67,000 people in their database, obviously the Broncos wouldn't have a database near that size I imagine but common sense would be to surely contact the people on the club's database. An e-mail is an easy way to do it but an e-mail can go easily unnoticed, for example, I have bought tickets online before and any e-mails will go to my 'junk' e-mail account where all Facebook and Twitter notifications go so I never look at it.

It would be nice if the club could contact people who've been to 0-3 games in 2012 via a letter and ask them to fill in a questionnaire about why they haven't been, what could be done to get them to turn up more and any other gameday related questions. Anyone who fills the questionnaire in then gets sent a voucher that is redeemable at the turnstile on the day of the first home Super League game of 2013.

Moe do you think the club would even consider this in the current situation we are in, would they want to know what fans seriously think?

Many of us have been constructive in direct contact with Gus, he has always responded, but nothing changes and some points raised are never replied to? Perhaps like Richard Lewis, yes from successful sporting backgrounds in management & administration, but perhaps people who come from backgrounds such as tennis or cricket are simply not in touch with rugby league and especially what is needed to make the game a success in London.

Just in case you already haven't, I have just emailed Gus now with this outstanding and dare I say, genius concept. I have no doubt that he will implement it immediately with a view to ensuring that the team run out to a packed Twickenham Stoop for the first game of 2013. It's so beautifully simple, I'm surprised that the collection and surveying of data has never been thought of before.....

In addition, I have just sent a text to Sir Martin Sorrell, highlighting your potential as one to watch in the future.......such foresight and invention should take you far Moe.... :CLAP:

If you can't see the delicious irony in this statement, then I truly fear for your contact with reality :lol:

You are the one GF who deserves a little pity, remember how you kept telling each and every one of us, not once but over and over again about how you had the direct line with the club & Gus and how you received constant texts & personal calls, it was like a Hot Line, then all of a sudden when it seems you feel ignored all of a sudden you turn against the club & Gus, school kids act like that! talking their ball home! :lol:

Seems to be a bit of a defend Guttersfax day,

But lets just get it straight: He's been beating this drum long before Gus turned up.
He said he would lay off the new regime for a number of games to give them a chance to not ball things up,
Then they balled things up worse than anyone ever before

Perhaps no one will ever please GF, you have to admit he glorified in the attention he was claiming Gus and the club was giving him and as I said he never failed to tell us!

I have said before Chris I'm not 100% in the picture with day to day happenings at the club, wonder how many of us are? we are all spread across a wide area even those in the South, but however genuine GF maybe with his many ideas, you need to be on the ground in London 7 days a week, every week of the year to be really taken serious. I don't think any of us disagree with the mess that has been made this season in running the club from sponsorship to merchandise and that is before we look at the coaching, currently we seem pointless as a club? I have a framed poster in my study of the poster used with the strap-line "Feel The Passion" I can't see any of the currently in our club.

Perhaps the "a" in "passion" was actually meant to be another "o"?

I certainly feel like I've been slapped about the face with a wet fish for the last 6 months. ;)
