I'll be interested to see if it's the vocal minority who disprove - for what it's worth I'm not against them or labelling or dismissing those who oppose - but I wonder if whether or not the crowds and such like do change much.
I think the record is clear.
Rugby league as is soccer is entertainment and the vast majority of fans don't give a fig for local tradition that is why Arsenal could sell out at top dollar every week and not have an englishman in the team.
That is why 132,000 fans watch Superleague and only 19,000 watch the Championship.
I love history and tradition more than most but it should not get in the way of success for our game. If fans hanker after the past fine, but to go round saying those that don't "disgust" them or "make them physically sick" is well out of order.
And they are almost certainly that good old (tiny) vocal minority that destroyed mergers
