I thought I'd start this thread before Darren had a shot at us attracting less than 11,000. Yes, it was slightly disappointing, but let's face it: rugby league is now a TV sport. We had a beautiful sunny day when the game should have been played - not on a cold Saturday night when only we diehard fans were prepared to forego all our other invitations to parties and dining out to get to the game. TV has won. Unless it is a blockbuster match we'll only get a hard core of fans to all our matches that are NOT played on a Sunday afternoon. It's the same with the Illawarra fan base, reportedly second only in size to Souffs in Sydney. They too got less than 11,000 to their home ground.
