Good luck to York, they certainly seem to have been heading in the right direction pre-Covid.

As for Newcastle, I really don't see how they are any more ready for SL than for example (the Club I support) Doncaster, who have historically stated aspirations of progressing through the leagues but who I would freely accept are far from ready as things stand.


Saying yes to TWP is also saying a big direct NO to Mr. Flatman and Mr. Kurdi..........

Indirectly it sends a signal of a big yes to Ottawa and New York. There are two paths to travel, carry on accommodating the American dream - or expand the English professional game with two new rich owners. Here is Eric Perez

Perez: “Toronto’s personal upside is to someday be Super League Champions. We can also grow a North American Rugby League. There is already interest from U.S. cities in the northeast (Boston and New York) who are watching closely. Our long-term goal is to organically grow the sport in Canada and the U.S”.

Perez: "From minute one we had a 10-15 year plan of expansion, Montreal is next on the list. We hope for a Montreal team in League 1 by 2019. We already a few pretty big ownership groups that are interested. Toronto is a city of six million people and, within an-hour’s radius, you’ve got 10 million. After Montreal let’s get into the United States, Boston, New York and go from there.”

Perez: “one rugby league team isn’t enough in North America. There's so much more potential for it to grow over here. "It's kind of the perfect sport for North America. "When we started the Toronto Wolfpack, we always knew that for the Wolfpack and the whole venture to be properly successful, there needs to be further expansion. I think Ottawa makes a lot of sense".

Perez: “I expect rugby league to spread to more Canadian cities, I have already been contacted by groups in Montreal and Vancouver”.

You cant move "Donny" too far away from his favourite subject.

In a wicked irony twist, I noticed that York's results, pre lockdown, had mirrored those of TWP and yet, there are some who believe that should be promoted to SL, along with Newcastle who are in League 1.
Mind you, Newcastle are unbeaten this season :D

Don't forget that Newcastle & York have millionaire owners, something Bramleyman has an obsession with.

Not surprising Argyle nearly finished up skint, old Bramleyman thought that a billionaire was only worth £100 million and not a £1000 million, make no wonder he didn't have enough brass left to pay the wages :lol: :lol: :lol:

It would largely be that but the usual suspects are here to shout it all down.

The choice for the game come the decision on TWP appears to be whether to go Transatlantic (hence Elstone included all three NA clubs in his deliberations)...... Which is one thing.......OR go back to Anglo-French.

All through this debate across the game there has been an idea that glamorous North American clubs offer us far far more than North of England championship clubs nobody across the world has ever heard of. But my point is that we can now see what the three north American clubs offer which is erm nothing, the only rich guy walked and the only potential investor wants to minimise his investment and grab TV money from here.

These subjects can't be isolated, yes we should talk about how well York and consequently Newcastle are doing on this thread, but we should recognise this is in the context of the opinion a number of people hold that we need these North American clubs because there's nobody in the championship good enough to come into Superleague.

What more do they want than two clubs with great ambition, £Millionaire owners, Great stadiums and player development systems they didn't have to have whilst outside Superleague? It's well worth reminding all on here how well York (and Newcastle) have done.....

The tremendous irony is of course there's a tendency for some Wakefield Fans to rubbish York and Newcastle, but I suppose as their club is struggling they may feel threatened by these clubs even if TWP get the boot. Wakey and TWP out and York and Newcastle in??. Would this greatly improve Superleague is the question now as the debate matures :D
