Pride & Heritage Posted July 1, 2010 Share Posted July 1, 2010 (edited) the clubs that arent in SL deserve to be where they are if you average 2000 or less and have been around for a century or more, then that is pathetic the RFL shouldnt kill off its expansion plans for clubs like this Why because expansion has been such a rip roaring success? Are you really so blind that you cannot see what a joke expansion has been? Gateshead, London, Celtic which one has been a success? Prior to them Bridgend and Kent Invicta, where are they now? Celtic pulling under 3000 fans for the Bradford, Wakefield and Catalans, if Batley were in SL, I'd bet we'd get more than 3000 fans every week! Wake up and take the blinkers off and don't believe the hype spouted by the RFL. I'll bet you think the Magic Weekends are a success too! If you take away the dream of playing in the top tier then the fans disappear too. Our attendances halved over night when we were denied promotion at the inception of SL. We realised there was no way of us ever entering the top tier of the game once that decision was made, and that is what all sport is about isn't it, chasing the dream to be the best? Where would your team be in the lower divisions with nothing left to play for, no dream to chase and how many fans do think you'd be pulling every week?
