Do folk on here believe that the said group would have a negative opinion on European Super league admitting Toronto in the league ? As the carbon footprint this will create will be substantial #savetheplanet.

From a globalisation stand point I would think so increased Carbon footprint for the game as you say. A more localised less impactful approach is their standpoint. Also and related to this how do we stand on McDermott's vision of just city based team, would this be plan made on sand and does this fit with the UK view of sport that is based on local derbies and long standing rivalries.

Expansion v carbon footprint , mmmmmm , I hope it’s McDermott’s mantra and not just shifting to the hand that feeds him on city based teams.

Most coaches promote the message that is beneficial to their employer. So probably the later. The question is is there a way of bringing in teams like Toronto but preserving traditional clubs and promotional relegation lets expand but keep the history and foundations of the game. No doubt poss a good to have Toronto in SL when negotiating next TV deal.

In isolation though , is it morally correct promoting/expanding at the expense of the planet ?

Teams will only be filling up seats on a plane where the flight already exists. It’s not like each club are buying their own plane and putting on extra flights to and from Toronto, the flights would be going to and from Manchester and would arguably be full whether rugby teams are on them or not.

Why? Do you think they will need to put on extra flights? I would seriously doubt it. The scheduled flights will be going anyway. They may be carrying a full payload but the difference in fuel used and subsequent increased emissions should be negligible.

It’s not up to Rugby League to solve climate change.

It’s the responsibility of governments and industry to do this.

It’s up to the energy and transport industry to come up with clean ways of travelling across the world

It can be done, it just requires vested interests to make less short term profit. Which is where government comes in.

More demand = more flights so, I think that your supposition is just wrong.
If your analogy was right, there would only be one runway at Manchester and there would be no pressure to build a 3rd runway at Heathrow.
If demand increases, either the price will go up or they will put on more flights (or both).

When did he say "JUST" city based teams?

Since when has UK sport been BASED on local derbies and long-standing rivalries?

For the last 20 years we've been told UK sport is based on promotion and relegation, haven't we?
