There are a lot of factors and I am surprised at some of the comments going back a far as Andy Friend and even the board issues. All history as far as I am concerned so I don't get why people are hanging on to it TBH. But this is the only data we have and the core issue is without supporter growth for the Brumbies the future is grim. Maybe we do need to start looking at some of the left field stuff we think is rubbish but might be valid to many others? There was plenty of local press about it so maybe it had more of an impact and a wider reach than we all thought. It not like Canberra is big and the Brumbies supporter base is expansive, so even putting of a small portion of the market still could have a big impact. We also need to compare apples.The Reds numbers are bouncing back slowly, the Tahs numbers are ok and the Rebels have had some growth. We simply are still bleeding numbers yearly more so than other teams even though we the team having success.
