In Topic: Opinion: Super League attendance drop should cause concern

17 September 2014 - 07:54 AM

Those figures would be skewed by the Catalans games shown this year which largely attract lower audiences, don't take into account which channels games are shown on, and also don't even include the last weekend of SL games for which the BARB figures aren't officially released until next week.


Correct......remove catalans and viewing figures are only 5% down.....not bad in a world cup year.

In Topic: What can we do to increase attendances?

17 September 2014 - 07:51 AM

Is there an answer to the OP yet?

A central sl marketing department funded by 5% of each clubs sky cash and tasked with working with the 12 sl marketing managers on season long projects. Not cartoons by the way but tangible direct marketing campaigns.
Sticking posts in the ground and announcing a ko time doesnt work.......but giving schools 10% kick back on ticket sales and getting local clubs involved does.......hard work, constant communication and a shed load more hard work.......Selling cheap tickets one year and then hoping that people will buy at full price next year doesnt work, but getting out and about in the community does.....its hard graft thats needed not cartoons and cheap challenge cup final tickets...and for christs same, take away the bumper book of spin that fat nigel seems to have found.....its embarrassing

In Topic: Well, we've got the finish we wanted

Apart from London and Bradford this has been one of the most competitive SL seasons ever.

Can't wait for the play offs going to be hard to choose.

I'd call that unfair on Bradford. If they'd had their 6 points I'd have said they'd have won a couple more....no worse than maybe Salford....
London were down before the season started

In Topic: 07/09/14 - Salford Red Devils v London Broncos KO 3pm

Salford by plenty. Problem is, this will be a fixture again next year same time with little chance of a different result

In Topic: Koukash praises Harris input at Salford Red Devils

02 September 2014 - 11:17 PM

 

Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash believes Iestyn Harris should be commended for the way he has turned around the club since arriving as head coach – believing his decision to appoint the former Wigan assistant has now proven to be the right call.

 

OOps......7 days later he pulls the plug on the player of the year award as a dummy spit reaction to the loss to Wakefield :tease:

 

The mans entertaining, that's for sure, but he surely has to reel himself in from time to time.....
