Generalising that an RU crowd (you don't specify where so it looks like you're talking about the whole game) is mainly or disproportionately corporate and full bandwagon jumpers. Thats why.
The point I made had nothing to do with codes of football or any other sport in fact.
It was about supporters who only bother with big games and yes this can be rugby league, cricket, rugby union, soccer.
Yes, the thread had been about big games, so my comment was focused on these - I thought that would have been obvious, but I apologise if not.
I agree with Dave T's point about glory supporters coming out - it happens from every club in every sport and will never change.
My comments related to the other 'half' of the crowd. In rugby this is mostly made up of fans of other clubs who come to the big occasion, no matter who's playing. In union, a much higher proportion of the extras are guests corporates.
I'm not actually criticising either code for this - one suggests a stronger community within the game and the other makes much, much more money. I know which I'm happier liking, but I accept that doesn't pay the bills.
