Saw Toulouse lose to Toronto at Magic, no video ref there so Toronto got tries they should not have got.

If there is no video ref available in Toronto then they should not be allowed to host a million pound game, and surely they should not be allowed in Super league as the facilities are not up to standard.

A game with a supposed £1,000,000 on the line needs every technology available in place......or the sport leaves itself open to further ridicule.....more so than it is now with the lead RL story on the BBC website being about a player biting another..
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:

You’re speculating as well on the assumption that the following 60 mins following the MCB ‘try’ play out the exact same.


Where did I say that? I only pointed out that Toronto should have been 4 points behind where ended up.

The winner of the game means absolutely nothing to me, I just hate to see such a blatant call judged incorrectly.

You said Toulouse shouldn’t have been thinking of Drop Goals so you assumed the next 60 mins played out the same. If MCB is pinged for a knock on then Toulouse could’ve knocked on a tackle or two later coming away from their line and concede a try from the field position gifted to Toronto.

Yes I know it’s an IF but it’s no different from the IF that try was disallowed the game would’ve turned out to be a Toulouse win.

No, no I didn’t assume anything. Read it back and give your head a shake...

This is also why TWP are (imo) going to struggle in the medium term. Their model is based on wealthy benefactors with plenty of free tickets, with a lot of supporters seeming to spend more time in the beer tent than watching the game.


A person in the beer tent has paid their way in. The team doesn't get additional revenue based on the % of minutes their eyeballs are directed at the field of play. On the other hand, a person sitting at home watching the game on telly isn't putting money into their club, even if they have perfect recall of every play for the past 120 years.

The beer garden is part of what brings new fans in ... appreciation of the sport comes later. Wolfpack understand that they are first and foremost in the entertainment business.

Sounds to me like their chief exec should not just be running Toronto but SL as well.

Selling entertainment is what the rfl have forgotten to do.

RU sells corporate packages which makes RU millions.

If beer tents do the same for Toronto well done I say
Huddersfield Giants 2013 over achievers

Huddersfield Giants 2014 under achievers ??????????

Maybe more with only 12 on the field *as should have been* !
