toronto question

Recommended Posts

on the main forum torontos attendances  are often praised ridiculed and dismissed  FEV's game supposedly had 8000 

so the question to FEV's happy band of followers at the game  were there really that many sat watching the game

Maybe not but it did cross my mind when watching the replay where 5 or 6 thousand of them were hiding.  Probably all getting a hot dog or something.

excuse me but if you listen to super greed on main forum only teams with x amount of fans should be let in so if making up crowds to tick a little box at the expense of FEV

THEN YES IT DOES MATTER!!!!!!!

The TV cameras are placed on the main stand which is not really seen on TV - this stand was packed

I remember a few years ago in licencing when crowd levels was a criteria and the numbers poskitt was announcing made me cringe!

Conversely, the numbers given for cup games.... notably v cas n wigan....😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

There used to be a rule that you averaged 2500 home fans. However some weeks Salford don't attain that.The worrying thing for super Dooper however is the amount of visiting fans that Toronto or Toulouse would bring. Its interesting though to note that Toronto interested more Fev fans when we played at home because we had a 3000+ crowd.

Next thing you know someone'll be saying they're good for the game, and we can't have that!

I really don't have a big issue. I dislike the coaching staff of that club intensely and as such that affects my opinion of tbe club......but the more people watching, playing, enjoying and investing in the game is a good thing for me at least.

They've started at the bottom and are working upwards..... which is what virtually everyone using this forum has advocated as being the right way to do things

No they aren't, otherwise the clubs might have to do something about them and apart from having a successful teams that wins finals they don't seem to have too much in their marketing arsenals.

Good job crowd levels are not a criteria. Indications are that the Championship league one is dying on its feet. 250/450 attendances, scorelines which make a mockery of the game. Punters will not pay to see such one sided games. Better value watching the NCL. How these clubs exist is a miracle.

I watched Toronto v London match yesterday interested to see how the stadium looked with their average attendance of 8000.Well unless there were 7200 hidden away inside the stands getting drunk their crowd looked like Sheffield v Barrow on a Wednesday night.Also the open end where the main road was looked quite amusing watching the traffic and padestrians go about there every day buisiness.Still nice to get a glimpse of the new super power backed by billions going forward.

If you saw the kick at goal from the reverse angle the camera briefly focussed on the stand where the main match cameras were. It was rammed

Even if it holds 4000 it is still below the 8000 which gets mentioned that they average especially when they are in the play offs for SL and furthermore Robin I wouldn’t swop our Stadium for theres.

Be nice to see them and Toulouse go up. That would be the worst case scenario for the greedy chairmen of clubs like Wigan and Saints and at least both clubs would go up on merit unlike Widnes who have eventually found their level.

Bang on Phil

Widnes were invited to the party without qualifying except in the eyes of the super we are all right jack clubs and although I do not like the toronto idea ( expansion my rrrrs the RfL keeps dropping further down the well time to take back control ) If toronto do get promoted just watch the brick walls starting to appear causing the further downward spiral of Rugby league it certainly ain’t gonna be a happy ending and grass roots rugby will almost disappear especially with the idea of teams from all over the globe being set up in the uk by their bored billionaires just like footy.

For safety reasons each stand (West and East) is capped (oooooh there's a dirty word) at 4,800.  You'd likely be able to shoe-horn 5,550 maybe 6,000 into each stand though.
