The flaw in his argument is he has no titles on the graph axis's, that's a flaw in an argument? Maybe 20 watching YouTube videos of excel will help his argument.

So he's the RFL's official statistician whose graphs are gospel, even if they aren't titled?

Check the figures and show me they are wrong, its very simple.

 

Nobody, not even you, has shown any other figures. Mine are based on the official published records.

 

If you wish to continue the discussion produce figures.

That kind of proves my point, we've shrunk the well and we go to it more often


It proves nothing of the sort. I don't what it is about our game that attracts so many young fogies who can't or won't recognise facts. Padge and I disagree on many topics but on this, the main topic on the main forum of the leading RL publication,, we are in total agreement. You should respect his grasp of the issues, his logical and analytic approach and his devotion to factual accuracy.

Ah. There are no titles, that's part of my scepticism.

Now, in Padge's defence, he has taken an aggregate of all attendances from the Rothmans/Gilette books from 1976 to 2011 and produced 'his own' graph. What is there not to understand here? I have the same set of books. They are collectors items for those who love stats and I am pretty sure they are accurate.

I never claimed to have any. You have figures but no evidence of what they prove.

I take it you're not good with numbers then.

So what we're seeing is that the last 3 years have seen the highest aggregate crowds in the past 35 years? What we also see is that aggregate crowds go up when we have 3 divisions?

So suggests to me that in RL terms, things aren't as black as most league fans paint them. We seem to be so obsessed with worrying that we're not other sports, rather than accepting our sport for what it is.
