Turn up all year to home games on a thursday, friday, saturday, and sundays for games that are worth 2 points. Then the playoffs arrive when the best 5 sides battle it out with some games being sudden death for a place at the theatre of dreams in front of 70k........... And rugby league fans want it for free on their season ticket or they dont want to pay more then a tenner.
These players have battled every week through a season that is way too long to achieve a playoff position. Surely that in itself deserves fans to pay £20-30 to turn up and support the players when its really needed.
Rugby league is also in the entertainment business and if they put a show/match on. Then like everybody else in sport and entertainment they are entitled to charge an entrance fee.
Unfortunately the sport has had so many freebies and discounted tickets at grand finals, cup finals, international matches that its created a culture that always expects cheap tickets and freebies and some dont realise its actually a business too.
I might go The cinema tomorrow and watch a 3 hour film and the walk out with 20 mins remaining as basically thats what 1000s of RL fans seem to do.
I must be different as i actually got rid of my season ticket ages ago as some league games felt like they didnt really matter...... But i always made sure i went tbe playoffs and cup games
