Do you know that Wigan in the 2nd Division averaged arounf 4,000 and they are one of the giants of the game. Everything is relative to time and circumstance. Why is it not ccepted that London is not a RL city or manchester or Hudderfield. They were down to around a 1000 inDiv 2 at Fartown or Wakefield or Hull HR in the same division. York is a potential area for serious RL growth up to and including SL.
Keighley got their gates up to 4 to 5000 and the town is only a quarter the size of York.
I am not going to throw you any more fish because it's plain to me that you can neither accept sound reason or logic. The facts and figures do NOT lie, but no matter what anyone tells you it appears you hate to be wrong, which to me makes it totally unreasonable to be able to hold any kind of sensible debate with someone like you.
You cannot use Keighley as a comparison either - some of your sports fans support Burnley!!
Just get it through your head - York and Rugby League do not mix, never have and never will. There is no fairytale ending to this in which all the townsfolk fall asleep and are awoken by a magic fairy who has sprinkled them wth rugby dust making them all suddenly big fans.
Personally, I think you just like to argue with people, even when you are wrong.
