[quote="MR FRISK"]British RL is biggest laughing stock of all major sports in the UK
ill make a couple of reasons way

1 Video Refs at 2 games a week however every one else as to rely on a ref 2 touch touches and 2 in goal judges
2 Catalans were"relegated" in 2006 but was "exempt" in 2006 and 2007!
3 Catalans get a video ref at EVERY home game
4 Wigan spent more than the cap for at least 3 seasons but only got a small points deduction
5 Why as the world club challenge only once been played in Australia and Wigan playing!
6 Australia has 2 ref at every home game but in Britain 1 ref
7 Every game is on tv in Aus but not in the Uk
8 What sport do you no of that the top side wins a shield but dosent win the championship!
9 What sport do you know of has the bottom side not relegated!
10 The "doc" tried to make Salford a team of starsbut got into trouble for it!
11 Crowds at Challenge Cup games are almost non existent Wigan only took 12,000 to the Final!
12 The "million pound" game is a JOKE
13 How can a team lose 66-10 but beat that team later on in the season![/quote

I have watched the games solely on premier sports. they have had the aussie channel 7 coverage. Good build up to the games and commentators and guests that actually know the sport. BBC coverage is embarrising


I've been watching Channel 7 too, but that main host is annoying. Reminds me of Eddie Hemmings.

Whilst I agree that being solely on pay TV is a bad idea I disagree with some of your other arguments. Here’s why:

6 Australia has 2 ref at every home game but in Britain 1 ref

Opinion is still divided on whether two refs are better than one. The lack of communication between the two refs causes issues, also they missing things because one assumes the other is going to make a decision. They have changed it recently to have a main ref and a pocket ref who is responsible for the play the ball. But even this has its issues.

7 Every game is on tv in Aus but not in the Uk

Crowds are dropping in Australia for the NRL, but TV audiences are up. All the games are on Pay TV and 2 on free to air. The NRL now has a dedicated channel and shows Queensland Cup, NSW Cup as well a many Under 20’s games. Compare it to Aussie Rules where the crowds at games are on the up, and like the NRL they have a dedicated channel and every game is on pay TV with 3or so games on free to air. Melbourne teams often get bigger crowds than Premier League teams for regular league games. Something similar in the UK would be much better.

8 What sport do you no of that the top side wins a shield but dosent win the championship!

The NRL and Australian Rules to name two.

9 What sport do you know of has the bottom side not relegated!
season!

And rugby union in England too, surely? They have a play-off system as well. So you really don't have to look very far.

In fact it may be harder to find sports that have no playoffs!!!!
