What did london get penalised for? Generally slowing ptb down one way or another, why? They were pushing the boundaries. What did wigan get penalised for, other offences that come from a quick ptb! Eg defence peddling backwards.
Could both teams have been penalised more!?Certainly, why were they not? That discussion has already been had! In a nutshell play on issometimes the greater advantage.
Was the ref biased towards wigan? If that’s what you choose to think, fine. If so the count would not have been whatit was

10k to watch the current champions and the self proclaimed big name of the sport. Shocking.

Woods and Ralf are killing the sport
Mac out!

Oh yes really. They are inaccurate as they dont include London. I know we were not in SL last year but Widnes were. You cannot include / ignore teams to massage figures. Where is the data to support these statements.

Championship numbers up by 23% london are not in the championship.
Every other team in SL numbers are increased, does not look like a sport that Is being killed.

Last season the Super League average attendance figures were down, with only two clubs increasing their crowds. St Helens and Hull FC.
This years figures with some massaging are reported have increased. Let us see how things work out come seasons end.
The TV figures being up with the TV deal approaching, must be good news.

1. If you replace London with Bradford, then yeah, I'd wager my house they'd be up......both based on the Bradford Home gates as well as their visits to their Yorkshire cousins. If Bradford go up/down, what are the odds the championship crowds will plummet (unless wigan or leeds go down that is :D )
2. Season to date has seen like for like gates over the weeks as being down on the same games last year....
3. London Broncos Crowds are abysmal by comparison to the pre-Hughes era. Being up from being 3 figures is hardly an achievement......8k to 2.5 k for Wigan...let's cheer-lead some more
4. The game is being led by a handful of SL chairmen, who ripped control from the RFL and I have no doubt who intend to pull up the drawbridge in an attempt to secure another average TV deal.....it's not about the number of viewers, nor is it about the fans on the terraces....it's about the demographic of the viewers/fans and how much SKY or any other broadcaster can get for the advertising spots......we're foxy bingo, other sports are Landrover.......you figure it out
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:
