    The Titans need the nrl to bail them out this year but are making a play for Inglis.

    Just doesnt make any sense to me.

    this is about the 10th time this week and last week I have read this same question.

    Look at it this way. The storm apparently are bailed out by 6 - 8 million a year by news limited

    I dunno - they seem to get good crowds up there - would have thought with major sponsors like Jet Star they'd be going OK.

    Their crowd numbers are very rubbery.  They supposedly had 25k there the other day however their were heaps of empty seats.  When we were up there they reckoned they had 14k, didn't look like that many to me.  A bit like souffs couple of years back where they were talking up their numbers.  Whenever they talk about titans' crowds I take it with a pinch of salt.

    Half the tradesman and small business people on the coast are owed money by these guys.i have met 4 or 5 personally.and im not just talking about the fiasco with simpson and the centre of excellence.Im invOlved in junior footy here - The titans  wont cough up on their contracts for the young kids- simple stuff like boots,bags etc.they owed the qrl 30k in junior sponsorship and in the end the QRL wrote the debt off.The QLD player agents hate them also as the kids they have in their stable get promised the world in terms of coaching and playing gear and get nothing.

    they are on the nose in this town after 3 years of euphoria and the crowd numbers are just made up IMO.I was a season ticket holder until this year and didnt renew-they rang me six times chasing it until i finally told the chaser to f...ck off.i got another call 3 days later.simply desperate.

    The Gold Coast is really on its knees after the GFC.All,and i mean all,the developers are broke which has a flow on to unemployment and makes it real hard re sponsorship.The banks wont lend on the GC to developers for a long time going forward so the town will struggle.will be a real battle for that AFL side.Everyone says what a big AFL town GC is.That is rubbish-they get about 7 or 8k to the NM and lions games.Carrara is a nightmare to get into as well.unless they are successful big time early on it will,with western sydney,become thir vietnam.
