Wonder if the lack of bbc promotion coverage is affecting us? ironic as iIalways thought making it harder to access on freeview would force the fans down the parc

I'm not sure, but was always of the opinion that Sky's OTT promotion of any sport it showed - including rugby - had a positive effect on crowds. Don't forget that Murdoch owns the Sun and Times titles as well, so those papers would always be bigging up Sky TV, no matter how good, bad or indifferent the product was. (Pretty distasteful and dishonest, but as far as crowds were concerned, I think it helped to build attendances in England at least.)

I can also say that I have far less interest in sports which aren't shown free to air than I used to - such as cricket and golf. I'm not so interested in those that I'd be willing to pay. Others, no doubt, feel like that about rugby.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Im pretty sure the removal from free-to-air TV has no effect on stadium attendances in the short term - but does seem have an impact on the sport in the Long term in terms of general public interest. (cricket and golf are prime examples above).

The point about Murdoch’s empire is a good one - I used to work on Sky Sports’ advertising and our whole media plan always included cross overs with the press, talk sport and Sky’s free-to-air channels which help with awareness.

Updating to include the Racing game - which was played during the storm so we might be able to understand the appx 1.5k drop below expected. (Attendance from EPC website)

ECC - Opposition - Attendance - Last Year - Difference
13th Oct 2018 - Racing 92 - 8,064 - 11,479 (Bath) - -3,415
7th Dec 2018 - Ulster - -
12th Jan 2019 - Leicester -

Crowds have been a little disappointing this year , I wonder if , as previously commented in this topic that the lack of coverage on the BBC has resulted in less awareness from the public generally and any resultant floating supporters who may have come along having watched games , but still disappointing after our performances over the last few years.
The Bath attendance was possibly surprisingly high last year which may have provided an artificially high figure to compare the Racing attendance to , plus there were probably many more visiting fans from Bath than from Racing and as mentioned above the storm's probably prevented many from attending.
Hopefully attendances will pick up again as the season progresses.

There wont be many there for the Ulster league game on 23rd nov as that's the same day as the llanelli xmas carnival, last time we played a game the same day as the xmas carnival I think we were lucky to get 3k there although actual figure was announced as 6k I think that day, cant see why one or the other cant be changed , cant scarlets ask to play on the Sunday instead as the Sat wales play SA, or cant the carnival be the week before or week after
