Ahh the bat monstosity.I`d forgotten it was there, now there`s a novel idea how to waste money!!
As much as I love all the above ideas, I`m not sure many if any will actually work. Reducing entry price for a league game will enrage season ticket holders, who at present only get 2 games free per season. Season ticket holder bring a friend for free is OK as it costs nothing. Likewise making drinks cheap on a night game could be counter productive if the club sells a thousand pints at £3, thats obviously £3000, if it was at a £1 a pint they would have to sell 3000 pints in pretty much the same amount of time just to break even and would need more staff for longer-insane.
I`m not sure many SL fans really give a monkeys f### about our division and it wouldn`t matter if it was free. Advertising this properly could be quite expensive too. However I would like to see a divisional season ticket, where possibly teams could agree on a price and you could get into any Championship game, with teams receiving the amount they have sold.
Hog roasts aren`t doing it for me, especially at a tenner a piece.
Posters have very limited impact on sales, as people are too lazy to read them by and large. Forget any help from the council-they just are not interested in us.
I think some ides are worth entertaining, as PKK stated children must be allowed into the ground for nothing. The average age of our support is scarily old and we are going to die a slow painful death if we continue like this and fail to attract the local kids and this includes the asian population (as hard as it may be). If the whole make up of the community do not become involved I don`t see how teams like Batley, Dewsbury, Olham etc can hope to survive in the long term. It is very sad but do people really expect to see us surviving at this level in 20 or 30 years time?
