League consistency has been awful under McDermott, that's just an observable fact. Look at the 8 years he's been in charge and compare with the previous 8 years. 4 SL titles in each section but the league consistency has been completely different. And there's a downward trend. 5 times when he's been in charge we've finished 5th place or lower - which didn't happen once in the previous 8 seasons.
Some people did mention his record at London and how their league form deteriorated under his tenure at the time he became our coach.

How can you tell whether the squad is getting traction when they are playing the worst sides in SL and Championship sides what does that prove - beating Halifax/London should be a given even at the current standard of performance
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

Do a bit of Stadium announcing as well.

First home game will be only 5 days after the tough semi final v wire. Toronto at home feels like a marketing angle and a tough ask that could get us on the back foot from the off.
First game will be important whoever we play at home.

They may as well just show the middle 8 games on SKY as that is where the excitement is, the SL play offs are already sown up bar who finishes 2nd and in the home slot.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

Then let's hope were not on the receiving end of another flood.

In respect of tv coverage, I have no idea about the Sky deal (maybe an international music mogul could assist...?) but would they not try to show us v Toronto and/or Toulouse, considering the real possibility that this will be an SL fixture next year, as well as the fact that they're 'new world' teams?
