Excellent point

Bradford went from poor crowds to the biggest crowds - how?

Probably a lot of free tickets but we cant give tickets away and lets not go down the success on the pitch route as we were top 4 for a number of years and were top of league with average attendance of what? 6000?

I actually think that was part of the problem, we massively undervalued ourselves with cheap tickets when we started to see success on the field, since then the product has worsened and prices increased, to the casual fan that is not an attractive prospect. Even if we do still have brilliant value season tickets.

Think we were around 8500? Lack of ambition by the club to participate in the WCC after we finished top gave a strong message that we weren't interested in becoming a big club.
