I would have thought the land owner would have had a decent say in proceedings.

Very much doubt it will come out of cash and they are not borrowing to have the work done
But Leeds are the landowners.... :?

Or Leeds, who are owned by Caddick, are the landowners. But Caddick's long-term dream has been to redevelop Headingley.

Leeds had accumulated about £6m-£7m of cash reserves which was earmarked for the South Stand project in its previous incarnation which would have covered most of the cost of that. The structure actually being built is rather larger and more expensive so it won't go quite as far but is still a decent chunk.

The balance, and the more complicated/expensive bit on the north side of the RL ground is being funded by loans from Legal & General guaranteed by Leeds City Council.

How much of the £6m/£7m is now to be used to pay up front for the South Stand I don't know as Caddick has taken to using the Rhinos as a piggy bank and £3.3m of it has been loaned to Caddick group companies with another £800k being used to fund some some eyebrow-raising directors loans to Hetherington and Oates.

And a very nice one too. Travel over for gigs at warehouse 23 and drinks in Harry’s bar. The Hepworth is worth a look and some beautiful parks.

If we are talking about the whole of the Leeds district (presumably including hunslet then?) then Huddersfield could be considered as representing the whole of Kirklees in superleague. I haven’t forgotten about Dewsbury and Batley but this is the vt where people don’t care about anything outside of superleague. They have a premier league football team to compete with though. Unlike Leeds whose football team is sh17

reality is not welcome, believe the myth that the Leeds fans do.

They sing a football song, tells you everything.

Maybe in Leeds "Rugbys coming home"

(you can't doubt their loyalty though, must be tough to travel from Bradford, Wakefield, Huddersfield to join a bandwagon, only to find the wheels have come off and the conductor is blaming everyone else)


As the majority of your posts on rlfans have Leeds as the main theme, I’d suggest you’re a troll or need to talk to somebody about your little obsession

They own it.........they can do exactly what they want with it. There are countless accusations of conspiracy and being hard done by, but the reality is the game put itself up for sale and was sold......other sorts aren't as "compliant" or easily used....that's not the fault of the people giving us £25,000,000 + a year....it's the fault of the people taking it!

I never said they didn’t own the rights or that they can’t do what they want with it. They could pay for the rights and not show a single game if they wanted. That doesn’t mean that’s what I think they should do.

The changes I mentioned are not anything that would cost Sky any money. It’s only what they do with most of their other sports programmes. It can’t possibly be in Sky’s interest to broadcast a poor programme, yet that’s what they’re doing. As I said, change the producer and I reckon you’ll soon see some positive changes.

Option 1.
You as a sky customer complain to them....they won't give a flying one....they get 100k to 150k for games and doubt they'll get any more viewers as RL is a sport you have to look for, not one where you'll catch casual viewers.
Option 2.
The people who are responsible for negotiating the TV deal on behalf of the sport make it clear that any production that isn't deemed up to scratch will jeopardize the contract.....again, they won't give a flying one......
Option 3.
Package the next TV deal up with "in-house" production teams and insist on a partnership with a FTA channel.

Choose one of the three above, but realise that we made our own bed when we scrambled to take the cash.......we can't blame SKY for not caring
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 Widnes 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:

This is the second time this has been quoted yet no evidence to back it up.

Stop making out RL is a victim here. Your post suggest RL has been singles out for poor treatment, yet you cannot state how or why.

There are plenty of trailers on sky for forthcoming RL games.

But not on other channels like there are for soccer and cricket. Not on their vans, not on their display stands in shopping centres.
