I'm sorry, but that's utterly disgraceful.

    Realistically, you’re not the target though. You’re likely a long-term season ticket holder (as are most who use an internet forum to discuss the club), so the chances are you’ll be there next year, the year after that and the year after that. It’s fine that you want to go, have a pint and discuss with your mates, who are likely also long-term season ticket holders and that shouldn’t be compromised.

    That said, we should still be attempting to attract new people to watch the club and in doing so, shouldn’t be naive to just think people want 80 minutes of sport and that some things can also be used to generate an atmosphere within the stands when the game commences. Some teenage girls (how very 1990’s) and a couple of mascots, as we’ve done for 30 years is tired and dull. It’s all we’ve done during Super League and we probably get away with it because of what’s on the field. Times have changed a little and we’re seeing clubs making more of an effort to attract people and to keep get them in and around the stadium (and spending money) for longer. Catalans, KR and Wigan are notably some of the clubs offering a bit more than just 80 minutes of sport.

    It’s also an income thing for Saints even with its existing and core fanbase. There’s no reason to get inside the ground any earlier than you need to be because there’s nothing going on and there’s competition elsewhere for business in the town centre. Given the situation that happened with the machines prior to Hull on Friday, it doesn’t breed confidence and makes me want to be inside the ground even less. I’d rather chuck money in the club’s pocket than some soulless, corporate entity but the pubs and restaurants in the town are typically warmer, more inviting, offer seating, offer music that isn’t grainy and offers better quality food and drink.

    MOS voting. Bennison get 3 points but then Hull FC players get the rest. This is why MOS has become a real joke.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    The MoS voting is a bit of a joke but I don’t actually see much wrong with someone deciding that two Hull players were worth points in what was a very close game. It’s when they give out sympathy points in a hammering that does me in.

    Your right they don’t need to target me. Pre match entertainment for me used to be the black bull or the dump of a bar we had at KR.

    I gave up on it when Paul McShane won it. Some are obsessed with it but for me it’s just the best player in a sh*te team.
