Nobody, because it isn't.

Take a look at the league table, 12 games played, Leeds and London are joint bottom.

As you said 12 games. Not even half a season. Only an idiot would think a game in May is a four pointer relegation.

If Leeds lost to London at Anfield and then again at London they may well turn out to be 4 pointers

What a snob !!! Leeds wouldn`t have been successful over the years if it hadn`t been for the smaller clubs. Plus the fact you are spending over the cap with the marquee players, I don`t see why you are complaining as you are spending more than most clubs. Leeds are lucky in that they have a massive catchment area in Leeds, population wise.


Absolute. rubbish, having a salary cap brings everyone down to the lowest denomination, that is the team who have no money and relies on handouts from SKY to compete. And small crowds. It's not about snobbery it's about having a support base and quality marketing. We are the only sport where the successful teams subsidises the poorest teams and it's the sky sponsorship deal that is keeping this going. before you go off on one, think about this, scrap promotion and relegation and keep the salary cap, or keep promotion and relegation and scrap the salary cap. Clubs who win the grand final they get the biggest share of the pot of money the team at the bottom get the least. You know now that this does not favour the Rhinos as we sit on the bottom, but it allows us to spend what we want and when we want,
One point do you think in one of the so called big four get relegated, Wigan, Saints, Wires or Leeds then the next Sky deal will be the same, no it will be less or as I have been told Sky are likely to pull the plug on the sponsorship, where does that leave the clubs with no supporters. This is where the issues are, SL are trying to develop the game in contries outside the UK. Which team in SL would want to see Toronto replace Leeds or the like, every team in SL will lose money, it's the travelling supporters of the big clubs who give the small teams much needed cash. It's down to SL to sort this out and have a marketing strategy that develops the game in this country never mind abroad.
Finally to the chap who quoted the Bulls and their downfall, I suggest you take a look at their Management at the time and the huge court costs they occurred trying to defend signing Harris from a pre agreement that he would resign for Leeds , they lost the case and had to pay out £Millions in costs , that buggered up the Bulls, but for their marketing base they should be in SL, at the expense of other so called SL teams with no supporters or having cattle shed grounds

Nicely put you could also have mentioned that if Leeds in the past had not bought “small clubs” players those clubs would not have survived!

Relegation 4 pointer? Just last weekend after Good Friday you said we could make the Grand Final.

Was a 2 point Easter Monday loss away to Wakey really the difference between winning the competition and leaving it????

Next four league games
Hull KR home
Salford away
Cas home
London Anfield

We have to win 3 out of four minimum, really all four are winnable and need some back to back wins. Anything less and we are in a straight dog fight to avoid the drop.

I don’t see London winning more than 3-4 more games this season. So if we could get 5-6 wins in the next 10 games we should have time to spare.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Relegation - PAH! In the 86/87 season Leeds avoided relegation on points difference and a mere 17 years later were Champions!
