It's difficult with a clown like him disrupting every thread at every opportunity with digs at Wakefield, the ignore button's a waste of time.

Welcome to the post-Wood world. I doubt this'll be the only issue where the game becomes paralysed in the brave new world in which the clubs "run" the game.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

Don't the superleague clubs have a meeting at the start of February? So I'd guess we'll hear something not long after that.

You'd hope so. j.c, but it sounds like there is a split between the 'Let's stay at 12 & split the SKY cash accordingly' faction, and the 'Let's expand to 14 and consider the benefits that Toronto or Toulouse may bring to the party' faction. I can't see that being decided in a hurry.

Personally, I'd be happy for them to say round August, that the top team in the Championship gets outright promotion! (providing that team is Leigh of course!!) :wink:

That's a new form of Jeopardy....you play all year long, finish top of the league but find yourself in Championship 1 to make room for Boston, New York, Hamilton and a host of other cities with no RL infrastructure and therefore no players but who will further dilute the talent pool.
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

It doesn't make any sense to increase to 14 unless the increase consists of Toronto and Toulouse.

You could still possibly have P & R if the highest Championship team other than Toronto and Toulouse gets to compete with the lowest Super League club in a MPG.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2019!

Avignon for Championship in 2020, Super League in 2021!

The sooner we go to 14 or more the better it has to be the way forward and 1 up and 1 down
