Raiders win most statistically incompetent comparison

In an article that will make you stupider for having read it the Herald Sun is declaring the Canberra Raiders have won the not at all coveted “facebook fan page growth” competition for 2013.

With no raw numbers it’s hard to say if 181% growth is anything to get excited about. Going from 1 fan to 3 fans will give you 200% growth but 3 fans will butter no parsnips.

As for the “talked about” stakes. Having a playing group of borderline criminal undisciplined turds running rampant will certainly get a team talked about. But they’re not going to win many trophies.

Hehe, you have to wonder why, maybe because of fans disgust regarding the coaching drama, Ferguson and Dugan. Not very good reasons IMO.

I did read in the paper the Raiders have worked out that their poor crowd numbers may have been because of their ridiculous gate prices and memberships. Apparently next year the cheapest adult entry at the gate will be $25 instead of $38.
I’d still like more flexible memberships. ie I pay for a membership and get discounted tickets for myself and friends. I typically go to several games a year with mates who support the other team or just like Rugby League.
