This decision has been made to reduce costs in the lead up to our much anticipated Betfred Championship playoff campaign.



We were told that money was no object, but that now seems not to be the case.

Also, the last couple of paragraphs smack of them using the IRB Calculator :lol: ...the most viewed RL team in UK RL in 2019.... :lol: :lol: what about those poor 150 million who would have tuned in to see the York and Leigh games :CRAZY:

Last year Toronto whined about the cost of not playing play off games in blocks and now they're again cutting their cloth to save money. Given they make not one cent in profit, this is a clear sign that their is a finite amount available each year and it also points to them NOT getting into SL for whatever reason this year as a catastrophe.

Are the Emperors new clothes starting to fray a little?
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:

It does seem odd, and surely it won't save them that much money.

But they are looking forward to the televising of the playoffs.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Because I have already had enough of them. They have spent more money than most SL sides and swagger their arrogance week in and week out.

I feel they need to be careful as they are not cracking any pots and they have been close to losing a good few times this year which should be impossible with the squad they have assembled.

I am hoping that Leigh, Fev, or Toulouse can upset the apple cart, although the odds are significantly stacked against them !

The sooner they get promoted and start getting stuffed good style, the better !

Make your mind up Snowy.........

1. I will absolutely pish myself if they bottle it for a second year running !

2. I am hoping that Leigh, Fev, or Toulouse can upset the apple cart, although the odds are significantly stacked against them !

3. The sooner they get promoted and start getting stuffed good style, the better !
