Not just players but volunteers (which you know well pfitzy). Those graphs about club, team and player number attrition are horrid, I'd expect a similar trend in support staff numbers as coaches, managers and general do-ers walk away.
Yup. Would be interesting if we had Volunteer numbers registered and reported on. I suspect they'd be historically low, based on discussions I've had - even those with First Division clubs - but it would struggle to have a heartbeat in terms of ratio to players.
Particularly as we're seeing players shift from what I'd refer to as "committed" versus "casual" e.g. those who play in more than 70% of rounds (not games) per season, versus those who attend less than 30% of rounds.
