Dear all,

I am not here to wind anyone up. I genuinely would like to know what the attendances have been for London Broncos home games this season please and why they are no longer published? Indeed, why is it so hard to find rugby league attendances in general this season? - they are no longer listed on SKY or BBC websites for example.

Thanks,

Rupe

For asking a question? How can wondering why attendances are not published by London Broncos nor the majority of rugby league clubs this season upset you?

Nothing to to do with your question, more the utter dross you have posted on here over the years. Why should anybody entertain you? I thought you were done with the club?

Well I wouldn't call it dross, it was all proven right. I didn't come on here to gloat about that, I was genuinely interested in what the London Broncos attendances were and why they were so hard to find for nearly all rugby league clubs this season.

I'm unsure why being interested in attendances per se cannot be separated from my feelings towards the club.

922 average for the 11 regular season games. By contrast Leigh averaged 3,538, Rochdale 552.

As for the vanishing act of attendances being announced/published. This happened about 3 years ago when there was a conscious decision made by the cubs/RFL not to include these in their match reports as the general "chatter" on RL forums was being clouded by the discussions about the decline in interest from fans and ergo sponsors etc.....this year The RFL have been happy to only include one clubs attendance figures in dispatches.....the mancpack, whereas the likes of Wakefield and Salfords crowds have been swept under the carpet. That said, they can always be found with the rare exception.....if you're that keen to find them.

As for this.....

JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I appreciate the reply. How did you find out the figures?
Surely the act of not announcing the figures in general suggests a sport that is embarrassed by itself?

As for me jogging on, I distinctly recall you being as popular as piles back in the day!

I bow to your ability to be universally disliked in under 400 posts.......it took me close to 22,000 to get to your level of "distaste" and direct requests from not only the "Phew Few" clique on here who'd have nothing bad said about hughes, but also from a umber of other "media" sources who cited my misgivigs as being responsible for the decline in the fortunes of the club.

Unlike you, I offered valid alternative strategies, now being used in Toronto.....at little cost to Argyle than a couple of rounds in a local bar and a selfie on social media, but your "vile and putrid" attacks on the Quins venture were founded on nowt other than your bias.......we had more fans in those first few years at Quins than we ever did anywhere else over any stretch of time.......Hughes "bu99ered" that up...not the Union tie in you "fetid sore on the sport"....now seriously, Jog on! :WAVE:
