Yeah, solid comparision to the Oly, same exact issue. Well, 15,000 is quite a bit beyond my wildest dreams, quite honestly. Getting to ~13,200 for next year would be great, and if there's another good season maybe another smaller rise the one after that, but I don't think much more is attainable. Might lose some to the Effzeh should they end up winning promotion, as well, but that's a bit of a long shot for this year, at least (more because I have a hard time seeing them win the relegation matchup than the two points they are out of 3rd).

Either way, the Haie after these devastating years are in a beautiful situation, even with the pain of the freshly lost final. Having gotten from selling t-shirts to avoid bankruptcy to almost winning the league in just a few years was a rollercoaster and makes most appreciate the season through the sting of losing the last game.
