There is good news around in the game at the moment such as the increased money from Sky-but what really concerns me is the decline in attendances at all levels of the professional game in this country.
Examples from yesterday:
Huddersfield challenging at the top level of the game 5300 v Widnes.
Rochdale v Doncasre 571
and finally Oldham once a hotbed of the game 438.
Hopefully we will get a good crowd at wembley next week but that it is likely to be followed up by poor crowds for the play off games.
Televised games rarely dissapoint us but for example at warrington last Friday there appears to be a lot more spare seats -and the lack of atmosphere does come over.
Everybody wil have their reasons as to the decline but when compared to soccer (not the premiership which is a one off) we seem to be suffering.
What ideas have you got to increase attendances at your club next season?
