Agreed, there’s a lot wrong with SL that seriously needs addressing, but the truth is commercialised crap for the short attention span is winning. 11 minutes the ball is in play in NFL but who cares, there’s hotdogs,fireworks,cheerleaders,commercials and the drone of an organ (or is that big rounders) for the other 2hrs 49 minutes. Call it condescending if you like but the things that become popular in modern culture are far removed from my values.

The game would be more popular if we had some boxing/WWE style staged drama before a game, instagram selfies of the players with rabbit ears on the big screen at half time, the officials having stand offs and colourful managers like Mourinho who act like sulking teenagers...sod it let’s go for it. The modern world, where words like vlogger, YouTuber, Facebook famous,instagramable and flossing exist, your music is mass produced and voted for in a popularity contest and there’s an online platform for narcissists to give themselves the name Call me God.


U ok hun?

American high schools get larger attendances than SL games, with smaller catchment areas.

That to me would suggest that people in the areas of northern towns in the uk find rugby league boring
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Say something negative about Leigh and Wakefield - TROLL

Easy tiger...... It's a user name is all it is and as GUTTERFAX was already taken, I thought it would do....
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:

I can see what you mean, with only 26 letters and an infinite number of combinations the choices must have been pretty limiting.

Though being an atheist I see your claim as having just as much credence as anyone else’s.

It's a work in progress, but finding 3 wise men is proving troublesome ........and don't get me started on the search for a Virgin 8)
