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:

The phrase "too many cooks spoil the broth" springs to mind.

I was thinking more long the lines of organising a session at a brewery, but yeah.....agreed

This worries me immensely. We already have an enormous disparity between the clubs, the direction in which they respectively see the sport heading, their level of ambition and their resources. There's a very real danger that we continue with a 'tail wagging the dog' scenario where individual self-preservation takes priority over collective growth.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

With 12 SL ceo's running the show, there is every chance that they may go for some kind of franchise option, which would instantly preserve their status in the top flight and allow them to divvy up any Sky monies between themselves.

The comment about TW is interesting, in that, it mentions additional broadcasting deals.

It looks like. if you can bring something to the party, then, you'll get an invite ??
Tbf, IF clubs like Toronto (and New York) can bring substantial cash into the game, then, this can only be a good thing but, the big question is, will they ?

Sounds like desperation from clubs that fail to sell themselves already and may well take resources from the grass roots.

It seems that RL administrators can't win whatever they do. People have been moaning ( rightly, in my view ) about Nigel Wood's lack of ability. So, now he's gone, and the clubs are starting (only starting, of course) to set out a more ambitious and aggressive agenda for progress, and yet you immediately call it 'desperation'. In truth, we need a bit of 'desperation thinking', not in a panicked way, but simply for the realisation to dawn that RL is missing out on the big money and needs to adapt to win some of it.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of maintaining the sport's grass roots and helping the smaller clubs to survive and flourish. However, unless we think big at the top (and was it not great that the potential England/NZ match in Denver was included in the quote?) we will continue to lose ground to Union in attendances, TV audiences, sponsorship and all the other revenue vital for the game to progress.
