Thanls for answering for someone else!
Still interested in why bradford not York.
If you were wanting a realistic view of if there is an actual increase in championship you would not count Widnes!

I'm not answering for anyone else I posted a comment, dont you know the difference . You are so pedantic its unbelievable. He possibly mentioned Bradford because they are now in the championship. Maybe York had already been included I dont know and frankly I dont care. I have a life to live

Pedantic? I asked a straight fwd question to someone’s post! You decided to answer that question with a clear statement. I was merely interested in why he picked bradford.
Nobody forces you to respond!

The simplistic and factual reality is that London, with 1K gates are now no longer in the Championship, but Bradford (4.5k), Widnes (4k) and York (1.75) are, so claiming that the game is in rude health is stretching reality to suit your standpoint.

In Superleague, HKR facing FC has boosted their average at an early stage.....they got 5k fewer for their next home game.....Same with Saints hosting Wigan......we drew 7,500 fewer fans.

14 SL games were played in the 1st season at Langtree (2012) including 13,262 for the visit of London........9,090 this time around, so spin it whatever way you want, crowds are in decline and skewed fixture lists only hide it from those who are in denial!
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:

It has obviously been a tactic of Rob Elstone to pre load the games this season. The intention is artificially inflate the attendance so he can claim an increase. He just has to hope people swallow it.

You do not need to look at the stats to see the support of RL is diminishing just look at the |Sky games, at one time Warrington did not have a spare seat in the view from Sky TV now there is more seats available than what are used. The same with Huddesfield last night more empty seats than used.
