Sorry, that horse has bolted and there is only Central Coast fans to blame for not turning up to support the Northern Eagles back in the day. If they had kept a good crowd and membership numbers do you think they would have turned their back on such a financial boom? Absolutely not.
Central Coast is also unfortunately based just an hour and a half south and an hour and a half north of their two nearest teams whereas other potential teams would fill a much bigger hole in the national landscape.
I know Central Coast will keep fighting but it will take a miracle to get a team, I think the best bet would be simply to petition one of the struggling Sydney clubs, such as the Sharks to base more home games there.
Agreed completely, you can't act like that to a referee and none of the current refs have enough arrogance/self respect to stand up to the players.
I don't even know if marching 10m is still in the rules but it used to work a treat when I played junior rugby and someone wanted to mouth off.
