1. I trust you, but you trust me that it's no good having any fans if you run at a loss.
2. Then my question of deluded pom is one you may care to answer. How does taking £4,000,000 of wages out of Superleague by dropping the cap drastically benefit Superleague.
3. Please explain how?
Please especially explain how Keighley, Barrow Sheffield or Doncaster will get 7,000 crowds???
1. the fact that they were denied SL money, extra gate revenue and possible investor money wouls have contributed substantially to the losses.
2 If 4,000,000 is removed from expednitures then obvioulsy it will allow clubs to make ends meet easier than if they have to come up with the 4 mill.
3. Keighley inceased their gates from 500 to 4,700. Sheffield have gone fron 500 to 1200 and, in their previous incarnation had over 4,000 averages. if the new Don Valley stadium comes off then hey. Doncaster, in their one distastrous season in the top tier had over 3,000. They used to average 250. Now they are in the keepmoat. If they can build for the future their attendnces should increase. Barrow have had gates ranging fom the hundreds to several thousand. i seem to remember 14,000 when Keith Jarrett made his debut for them.
The true answer is that I don't exactly know how they will get 7,000. Attendances fluctuate. Wakefield from 1000 to 8,000, Wigan from 4,000 to 14,000, the famous Bulls from 250 to 15,000 and all stops in between. What did Catalans average before SL ? Give them a chance and see what they can do. How are Salford going to get to 7,000. they havn't averaged thAt since the 1960s but they might now their circumtances are what they are. They have had several attendances in the 2,000 range this season but you couldn't rule out th effects of a new stadium and new cashed up ambitious owners.
London are touted for SL, as are Toulouse ( do they average 7,000 ). No they are works in progress and so would those othwer teams you so love to run down
