Why?


Because it's a pointless argument? Wigan Warriors don't have the money to build a new stadium or to develop Robin Park. Utilizing the DW is the best option financially that we have, yes there are some drawbacks but they are a minor problem in he grand scheme of things.
As an example since Saints moved to their new stadium look how much money they have lost.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

It is a pointless argument as nothing will change,we are where we are and really that is that.
Just back the club and who knows what the future may bring.

Nothing would last long on here if the criteria for locking threads was that there was a pointless argument involved.

The thread was opened because of the short turnaround between a rugby and football game that has the potential to cause certain issues (and has in the past). It then developed and there's been some good posts that bring out some of the nuance involved on the owning / renting debate.

TBH the way it started it looked like another IL bashing thread which is why I think Jukesays said to lock it

I started this thread and it was not my intention for it to be the start of an IL bashing thread . My sole purpose was to flag up that the biggest home game (crowd wise) of the season may need to be moved and for those who travel any distance to be aware of this. It isn't always because of Sky that games have to be moved . It's always good to be aware that a plan B may be required and it's good to have as much notice as possible

I wonder if those same people who constantly bash IL for not spending £15m on a stadium would all stump up an extra £150-£200 on their ST to pay the interest on that £15m, which would equate to £450,000 at 3%.

£450,000 is (I think), way more than is currently paid to rent the stadium that is losing £1.5m a year.

Principles are fine, but they often come at a price. In this case, it would be £500 season tickets, £35 match-day tickets, lower crowds, lower revenue, higher ST prices, higher match-day prices and repeat.

They can't even be bothered to clean them. Couple of seats around me that had bird cr@p on them, plus a thick layer of dust.
