    Ok time for a conspiracy theory:

    Does anyone remember the 1989 movie Major League (with Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes). Cleveland Indians baseball team owner Rachel Phelps wants to get out of Cleveland and move to Miami. So she choses the worst possible coach, and the worst possible team of players ("this ones dead !", "Well cross him off then !"), as she has an escape clause in the contract with Cleveland that if the attendance for the season falls below a certain level then they can walk away. So they run down the training facilities, demotivate the players, lose a lot of games etc. etc. until fans start to walk away.

    Other than the Northern Beaches being completely unlike Cleveland, does any of this start to ring true ? Of course it backfires in the movie . . . . .
