One thing they can't do is change the rules mid season. If Leeds finish bottom they should go down (and it would be funny if nothing else to see Sinfield's face!) but my preference would be we go to 14 teams in 2021. Would be good timing for a potential TV deal.

It's the same with Leeds.

We can loath them as our rivals and detest their fans as mouthy Yorkies, but Wigan will lose out if Leeds get relegated.
they bring nothing to away grounds especially in Lancashire their travelling support is awful for a big club

But have the biggest social media following of any rugby league club in the world. It’s not all about away attendances, Leeds do bring a lot to the league, love them or hate them. (I hate them).

who cares about how many social media followers they have really? What do they bring to the league ? Think every one secretly is chuckling at them at the moment they certainly were on wish fm and that was just the saints commentary guys :lol:

You are joking? No offence but that’s a very outdated view, in this day and age social media is absolutely huge.

Go have a look at the followings of United, Barcelona, Patriots etc. It’s indicative of the size of the club but also a correlation with how many viewers they bring to the sport. Everyone is hung up on away support but in terms of Sky funding that means nothing in comparison to viewers.

Can't wait for Leeds to finish bottom and see all the excuses from their arrogant fans (not all of their fans), It will be comedy gold, Then the RFL can swoop in and announce they won't be relegated as they are expanding SL to 14 teams. They will be safe I have no doubt but the stigma of finishing bottom and getting saved from relegation will be a gift that keeps on giving for many a season :lol:

Could say the same for us. I despise Leeds but I fully respect what they bring to the competition and success they’ve had. I really believe the competition needs Wigan, Saints and Leeds.

For the sensible posters that realise what SL would be like without the Rhinos in it :CLAP:

For the fans that want the Rhinos relegated....Be careful what you wish for

Besides we're not down yet!

I love the rivalries that we have with Wigan,Saints,Warrington,Hull FC etc but I miss most the big derby crowds and games against the Bulls when most of our games had 20,000 fans in the grounds both home and away,and look how worse SL is without the Bulls in it

Unless we get a vastly inflated Sky TV deal next time round which makes the competing clubs totally irrelevant (Which won't happen) then IMO we need the big clubs in SL,If only so you could keep your hatred up of them, like I did when you sent Cas down and I was glad that I could carry on hating Wigan :lol:
