As other CAS fans have said.... If only we could of kept our recent good league record Vs Leeds into this season.... They could be 4 points behind London now.

I think London will be the team to drop. Losing to Wakey in the last game.


And if Leeds had kept their decent record against Hull FC at home and Salford away we could be 4points clear from the rest at the bottom.

Things like that mean nothing.

Anyone seen The Printer now this Leeds Bullsh1t has been dispelled ?

Ninth best watched match is Leeds best (and that was against Saints) and Leeds are on every week at that !

Look we are a poor team at the moment and there's many factors that has led to us being in the position we are in, if we finish bottom we deserve to go down, its as simple as that.

I just don't think that would be a good thing for SL, losing the best supported club in one of the biggest cities isn't good IMO I would say this if it was any of the so called 'bigger clubs' as well, losing Warrington, Wigan, Saints, Hull FC, Catalan, Cas would not benefit SL.

I don't particularly want London to go down as it will be a shame.

Personally I think it's actually a great opportunity to go to 14 teams, I'm not even sure who would be complaining about it. Let's say SL announce today that relegation is scrapped and we are going to a 14 team league for next year with straight home and away fixtures. No one goes from SL so we keep London (and yes Leeds) Toronto automatically gain promotion and the championship playoff goes from 1-5 to 2-6.

Who loses out in that scenario? the Championship clubs now have a better shot at promotion, SL keeps its teams including London who can build on the 'Success' of this year and Toronto come in plus another Championship side.

The idea of relegation in SL is inherently flawed as we don't have an even handed fixture list at the moment.


And the scenario highlighted should not be dismissed, and I am sure it has already been discussed !

Shouldn’t believe everything you read. Check BARB and straight away one week early stands out.

That article says Round 2 Hull vs Cas got 128k....it actually got 150k

Whilst Wigan vs Leeds the next night apparently only got 119k....no it didn’t it got 186k

Grateful for a link if you have one to compare, given the info in the link provided advises it's a different measure (i.e. only counts one channel not two)

So on having access to figures, do you still maintain that Leeds on TV can potentially double the viewing figure?

All on the Barb site if you want to go look it’s easy to navigate. I know they only counted one channel (Sky Sports Arena) which is why their numbers are wrong and stupid to claim they’re the most watched matches.

128k watched Hull vs Cas on Arena plus 23k on another Sky Sports channel, so more people did NOT watch that than the combine 118k on Arena and 60k+ plus on another channel who watch Wigan vs Leeds.

Whoever complied these pee poor numbers also missed out Wakey vs Leeds on 7th June which was 80k+ plus onSky Sports Arena alone yet missing although theirs a few games in the 70k’s included.

I'll take the figures that have actually been posted Mr P. that is until YOU back yours up. "No it didn't it got 186K " just doesn't wash. :wink:
