They need it!

Perhaps $1.50 snags will get people coming back to the games!

Perhaps United expects issues with their rings. Anything Illawarra can do, United can do better.

Let's hope this man can make a major difference.

United averaged around 8,200 people to their home games last season.

Home crowds are way down this season.

Although, I do acknowledge there are a few factors contributing to the down turn, this season

Yeah, it's a tough one. Between the pandemic and then the NBL Cup, maybe there are good reasons why crowds are down. The key will be making sure fans that are absent are a 1-season absence only.
