In the mid 2000's Hulls crowds were peaking at around 14,000 when they were flying they got 14,256 for a league game against Leeds, a couple of years earlier HKR had an 1,154 attendance for a league game against Chorley.
These are in the Gillette yearbooks if the person with the stupid comment above wants to check them himself.
You're picking one game against a big rival and calling it "peaking"? That's like saying since Rovers have been in the league, we've peaked at 23,000 crowds.
A one off high attendance tells us nothing. As does a one off low attendance.
What were the averages? That tells us what the crowds were like that season. If you want to take out the Rovers game as an anomaly, be my guest...
For someone often complaining that they're getting picked on, you don't help yourself with things like "stupid" do you? Practise what you preach.
As it turned out Hudgell saved HKR who became strong competition to Hull. Hulls attendances dropped and Rovers rose and the old rivalries thrilled Humberside.
Maybe you can check those year books again to back this comment up...
But in this new age of clubs who are in SL and receiving millions from SKY against clubs in the CC receiving nothing from SKY we see some very marked polarisations in levels of local support.
Care to reflect on where HKR would be today if nobody had come in to save the club DP?
That's a bit of a limited question isn't it? If a club needs saving and nobody comes, it'll disappear. But who says nobody would come?
