i can only hold onto any kind of hope there is left.
facts are Townsville as a city is in a pretty big hole with high unemployment, high crime and not a lot of money coming in. All of the millionaires that lived here in the 80s and 90s have moved on either physically or moved on with their life.
Townsville has won 2 QBL championships over the past 3 years to try to stay relevant and will continue to do that in NBL1.
At this point, there is a huge following of the sport in the city but just not enough money and corporate dollars to support the Cowboys, Fire and another national team. Everyone is struggling. All we can do is hold onto hope, keep investing in our juniors and state league and then try again in 10, 15 maybe 20 years time.
I wont give up, but i'm also realistic.
