The Board and the FFA made the decisions that impacted the Roar's crowds. The ill disciple against Melbourne had nothing to do with it! How could it? The poor crowds had already happened.
Why did the crowds fall:
1. Gold Coast - split the Roar crowd and have no fans of their own (FFA have admitted this with typical club fisted approach ).
2. Raising ticket prices (look what happened at the Celtic game)
The Board must accept responsibility for not accepting financial help.
