Joff's been busy on southstander resurrecting 3 year-old threads started by a poster called Mario. Make of that what you will.

He's not even subtle about it :roll:

But my question is: Why buy a British club just to relocate them to the US?

Hector has said that the Skolars are going nowhere......I believe this is tactical i terms of getting a seat at the RFL table which he hasn't got, as well as offering a pathway for Canadian talent to be trained and play in London getting valuable RL experience.
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:
