It's sad you have to call names, but the parrot thing is ironic as you sit on my shoulder and peck away.
I called you obtuse because you keep typing "what's your point?" like some demented parrot. I also pointed out that Bradford won back to back Championships and still couldn't crack a 6,000 average. So we are now using the population of the town or city as a back up for your logic. So let's lose Saints and Wigan straight away (populations in 2011, Sts 100,000 approx. and Wigan 81,000 approx.) or are they allowed to bring in supporters from outside of the towns themselves but no other team is? Now, what's YOUR point?
The proposal was Halifax can get SL gates as big as Bradfords SL gates, but the reality is that they haven't done that.
I posted the populations because the original proposal was that Halifax would draw fans from "Calderdale" and a 200,000 population was cited. Calderdale includes Brighouse which is right in the middle of Halifax Bradford and Huddersfield.
That's the context of the reply that if you look at catchment areas for fans they actually overlap where clubs are close to each other, heavily so in Hull for instance.
As for Saints they have a catchment area of 100K do they - I think you should think again, and as for Wigan they are just a small town like Leigh?? Maybe Lobby's right that if Leigh came into SL they "could" get gates as big as Wigan's.
But once again I'd just check the "facts" and take the view they wouldn't.....
