Think it is why getting Salford and Wakey in New /redeveloped grounds.  Reduces dependency on Sky to pick big clubs on Thursday to have a game that looks full,  meaning better days open up for Wigan. 

Just think we are one big club short to take the pressure off the usual suspects. 

Sky don’t pick games because of how full the ground looks.

Sadly for us I think early season Thursday games will be here to stay. Even when the Huddersfield game wasn't televised, it was still on Thursday so there was a 2 day turnaround to protect the pitch and sort the stadium for the Latics game on the Saturday. The best we can hope is our home games and Latics away games in those poor weather months don't overlap.

Why to the football team get precedence over the RL team, it’s not their ground is it?

Every single Football League and Premier League club is expected to have primacy of tenure at the home ground. It's a requirement of membership of those leagues.

As far as I'm aware, they all have it.

9,500 (and a bit) it was announced as at the ground. A poor crowd but it was freezing and whilst it’s a shame to dip below 10,000 for the first time in the league, that’s our run of Thursday nights out the way, so hopefully it’s only going to go one way now. The club needs to get the new marketing director earning their money over the coming months. 

From the outside its a bit of a puzzle  

It feels among fans its in dumps, but team playing good rugby 

Is it because saints playing so well and winning, wigan fans just annoyed? 

The above means gripes about ground come up, along with ticket prices.

I’m not sure exactly how the ownership works in terms of whose name is on the documents but if it’s not the actual club, it’s the new club owners from Bahrain. A new deal has been worked out now for the long term tenancy by the rugby club but we’re definitely second fiddle. 
 

I think we need to push for Sunday games if Latics are at home Saturday but there’s been talk that the stadium company/football club think it’s not enough time to turn everything around. That sounds like rubbish to me.

It is obviously nonsense, they just want to strangle you slowly.

In fairness to them it’s been the talk for a long time before these new owners came in. Also just looking now, our game against Salford on the 24th April is the day after a Latics game, so maybe these guys are a bit more receptive and that’s positive if so. 
 

I think the pitch in Jan/Feb is the big worry. It held up pretty well but the weather was the pits.

Should firm up now, they´ve got a World Cup game too so they can see the benefit of having top class rugby league in the area and stadium.

It seems some members of the Hull public have taken the free tickets that we’re on offer and now there’s none left are selling them on.

I wonder how the season ticket holders of Hull kr feel about others getting in for free when they’ve already paid?

Probably pleased to see the ground full with a banging atmosphere, it’s not like that happens every week.

If your mob don’t start winning soon they won’t be able to give tickets away,looking forward to your posts around 2130 tonight.

Impressive and it is why SL will go to 14 if it looks like Leeds are going down,  sport cannot afford to lose them. 

How many Saints fans? Quite a few, even so a great crowd for Leeds these days.

Er, sunshine, the £1 tickets were for us Rovers members to give to friends & family, which we do at one specific game per season as one of the membership benefits we all pay for. So I imagine we all feel pretty happy about the people we’ve given them to using them.  

 

Have you managed to work out your basic error yet?

During the pandemic when the capacity was zero? 

Pre-pandemic. Leeds vs Bradford friendly (Rob Burrow game) followed by the season opener vs Hull FC.

Less than 4,000 at Huddersfield tonight, disappointing but considering the weather and lack of away fans possibly just the season ticket holders tonight.

Good job league tables aren't based on attendances though.

Also Huddersfield Town on Sky TV vs Hull City I think.  Curious one for sky to undermine one of their other products. 

We've known for yonks that stadium is not fit for puroose but all they can do is keeping winning and hope for some momentum.

It would be just the giants luck to get to a cup final and have the association football team end up at Wembley. 

Everyone else looks solid. Big game for Wakey now Sunday.
