I refer to an article in this weeks edition of "League Express Mailbag"
and quote a readers comments as follows : " Because of the woeful
attendances at many clubs I believe the Super League should be
restructured at the end of the season.
The composition should be expansion teams in Ireland and Wales plus
the thir*** league teams with the highest attendances. If teams in the
top flight can't get a decent crowd they don't belong there "
I for one think this person is talking a lot of sense, although I
think the idea should be introduced for the start of the 1998 season.
Perhaps then the Clubs Management will be forced of their backsides and
look to effective marketing to bring the punters back. Let's face it there
is nothing wrong with the product ( games I've seen are better than
they've ever been ) but the pre match entertainment and ground facilities,
with a few noteable exceptions , are pathetic to say the least .Can anyone
tell me where the first installment of Murdoch's millions is being spent ,
because I can't see any evidence of it .
Although my team "Cas" would no doubt be an early casualty of the above
ruling, I feel that drastic steps need to be taken if RL is to expand to
the huge national sport it deserves to be.
