Genuine question Daz, Mark, Robin Terry and all the other Fev fans, is it possible for you guys to increase your crowds to something like a 6-7,000 average without impacting on either Cas or Wakey (not that you'll be bothered ) im not saying that 6-7,0000 is what you would need to compete in Super League, just wondering if its possible
Onward and upwards though.
Who knows? Historically there was a period of time 1960 to 1977 when all three clubs were very successful and fed off each other's success in terms of crowds for big games, especially derbies. There are obviously a large majority people whose allegiance lies strictly with one of the three clubs. Rovers have never really been big crowd pullers on a regular basis. The 1988 to 1995 period with crowds between 4 and 5K were reasonable for the period, comparable to Salford, Wakefield, etc and slightly less than Widnes, Bradford, Warrington, etc.
To find out what kind of crowds we're capable of under the current management and their marketing plans, the answer would be 'give us a go in super league'.
