Yes

 

Ok so the same applies to Huddersfield then

A half decent home town team, Bradford & Leeds within 10 miles and a short railway journey to Old Trafford

Not to mention Leeds Rhinos (it's still very annoying to see the number if Leeds pennants on cars heading over to Leeds on a game day)

Had this game been in Sunday then the crowd would be 7k, still not great but a lot better
Visiting fans help further

  Yes dead right, all those same things apply to Huddersfield, plus two at times very successful Sheffield sides, My point was there is no Warrington Wanderers or Wakefield United is there  ( happily ) If there were, those clubs would just find life so much more difficult and to pretend otherwise is kidding yourself , That's why Wigan are  to be admired IMO, Also Hull and Leeds who have much bigger populations i think, Nevertheless the crowds they  manage  are a credit to them.

One aspect of last night's game was very disappointing and that was the total disrespect of the players towards the referee. He didn't help himself in many ways, in particular by ignoring it, but that in itself is no excuse for the attitude of some players. I was particularly surprised to see Crabtree joining those ranks as i expected better of him.

 

Time was when our game prided itself on the authority of referees and the respect accorded them by players. has this now come to an end?

My gripe is not aimed at Huddersfield becauae we know games like this will be empty stafia. From a PR perspective, the RFL should not allow matches on sky where Les Cats (or London for that matter) are away from home and the stadium will be less than say 40% full.

Totally  agree, It wants stopping before it just becomes the norm, It's unusual for Crabtree to get involved, but all teams have those that do.
