Congratulations on taking a comment out of context.

Look at the parts of the sport that get people excited - that go viral - it's not the big bruising plays, but the flair, the skills and the trick plays. That's what gets people talking about any sport - be that Gridiron, basketball, RL or soccer. It's the Ronaldos and Messis of this world that kids aspire to be, not Jordan Henderson and Eric Dier.

And not withstanding any of that, the NFL reaches hundreds of millions of people in some of the world's biggest media markets. They can afford to be slightly more resistant to change than we can.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

At the moment, if we went into the middle 8's like they stand now.

Catalans and Huddersfield definitlye have enough to take care of Toronto, Toulouse, Featherstone and Halifax. Hull KR and Widnes would be difficult, it would be close in most games however I would probably still put my money on the SL outfit.

Actually... I take that back. In each game where the SL team meet Toronto - it would be like taking a paddle from a Canoeboy.

It's a tough one, as both us ( KR ) and widnes have had a real bad run with injuries and are now on the verge of getting people back, aided with some recruitment could come in looking good at the right time. Catalans I think will nick 8th, and huddersfield have proven to be rocks and diamonds. I've watched them be both impressive, and down right awful.

Salford I think could be the worry - starting 17 is decent, but the lack of depth is starting to bite and a few more injuries and signing people like shorrocks as starters could be a recipe for disaster

Not a bloody chance :lol:

Toronto look like they will be a genuine challenge but Toulouse & co wont be anywhere near.
Of the other contenders, Leigh probably have the best chance but, they're not yet in a top 4 place.

Halifax & Fev, not a chance and London seem to be struggling.

Widnes are the only vulnerable side but, you would have to expect them to make a couple of signings.
Even with Toronto busting a gut, it could still be "as you were", when we start next season - unless there is a format change, in which case all bets are off.

The fixture scheduling is a little unknown at present and this could be THE major factor in deciding the MPG contestants.
