I aren't saying it would attract anyone in Coventry, I was using the numbers Dave had projected. If it was sold out in Leigh, it would at least look decent on TV, but it won't be. At least if the game was held somewhere like Coventry, there would at least be the excuse that it was 'on the road' which would at least be a bit of an ###### covering exercise.
Why would it attract a crowd of 5k in Coventry and what benefit would it have to both clubs financially?
But if its all about money, then lets scrap home and away fixtures and gauge games on who will probably get the best crowd. But what about the notion of neutrality? It's the Cup semi final. Is it fair to have a semi final 200 miles from one team and 5 from the other? No, it isn't.
