As a sport, we need to look at letting the clubs be the absolute best versions of themselves that they can be. If that means Wire spending big, then so be it. It gives everyone a target to reach Vs the green-eyed monsters we have at the min.

For far too long, the smaller clubs have held the sport down.

Have to agree with you

Fully agree. There should be no limit for those clubs with great ambition and deep pockets. If that's Wire, Catalans or someone else and not Wigan at this moment in time then so be it. It would only be a few years of trophy drought for change to happen (supporter pressure).

Top clubs showing ambition and deep pockets bring in top players, brings in bigger crowds, brings in bigger sponsorship deals, brings in increased television revenue.... and the sport is healthier for it.

Irrespective of finances, it was time for Sam Tomkins to leave Wigan after that disgraceful video came out IMO.


It wasn't the greatest footage but 90% of the issue was Joel
(and he was dealt with immediately). Sam was drunk and being a bit of an ar$è but not on the same level as Joel was.

I don't think a bigger and better TV deal will increase crowds. The more the game is on TV the less reason the casual fan has to attend games. The first thing we have to do as a sport IMO is get more people through the gates.

Better TV deal is more money for clubs who can sign better players, keep existing, improve stadiums, improve facilities, improve youth system.

More and better coverage will also help the game grow and attract new fans.

There needs to be multiple avenues / changes to grow the game that happen in parallel.

Although not the best comparison, football doesn’t really struggle with attendances because of games on tv.

All true, but I don't think any of that will translate into Bob who watches down the local bothering to go the game in person. He'll still watch in the local, he might just have 2 or 3 more people to watch with.

That's what I put. Better talent on the field (with good marketing of course) should bring definitely in bigger crowds as the success mounts. The sport needs a big kick up the booty to get a good buzz about it again. Obviously attracts bigger and better blue chip companies rather than 'Frank's Chippy' (and similar) badges on the back of shirts, gives the sport more credibility overall.

Get four, five teams of this nature and its progression back to where the sport was at its strongest overall (early 00's in my opinion) when we had a strong Saints, Leeds, Bradford, Wigan with Wire promising things. Back then we had Saints, Wire and Bradford filling the North Stand, we would regularly get 16k against Leeds. We need to get back to it as a sport.
