All this about something what might or might not happen.

I'll tell you why I wrote what I wrote, and why I thought it initially when Stu posted it.

Because as it stands its a non story

Once play off positions are known we can discuss with the relevant info
As the article says "That system rewards the highest placed team with the potential of an extra day's preparation for the Grand Final - should they win"
The main word being "Potential". Could that be interpreted as potential meaning potentially if SKY choose that game?
Could it be a terrible press release from the RFL that's been interpreted wrong?
Could it be the article is wrong and assumes incorrectly?

As Bilko pointed out, the league leaders only benefited once in the last 9 years so hardly historic evidence that this has always been the case etc.

Does it say anywhere in the SL rules or RFL info that Sky have to pick the league leaders game or the League leaders will deffo get that date?
Aren't play offs and the income distributed differently, so the financial element is not as big an argument as is being made out.

I can see you've related it back to the old Latics situation and it's their fault which is what IMO they wanted to do.

How can the league leaders be guaranteed the Friday game in one breathe, then say that Sky get the pick???
Both can't be right.

AsWigan fans over reacting?
Yet its saints fans started it and in the main throwing out all the potential problems and what an injustice it will be!!!

As for the.last part, yip, I suspect you'll be right, and just like previous years the world will move on, the teams will play and the paranoid will have something else to worry and blame and get their excuses in.


Regardless of which game Sky picks, we potentially can't play on either of those dates. We don't play the night before Latics and we can certainly can't play at the same time as them either.

It's a potential headache that we don't need.

Hopefully IL doesn't see it like that and actually has a plan for most scenarios, as we're only like a month away.

You're right tho, let's just stick our heads in the sand and pretend it won't happen.

Why can't we play the night before latics?

It's not causing me a headache, I would advise you don't need to let it create you one either.

I'm pretty sure Mr Leneghan and Mr Radlinksi will have considered all scenarios, and, aren't burying their heads in the sand.

exactly we as fans cant change what happens or doesnt leave it to guys in charge to come up with the solution to any scenario that occurs.
I am not burying my head in the sand even if I did nothing will change,only that I would swallow a lot of sand.

Here's hoping that happens - would be great to play Wigan at home in the play-offs.

My post wasn't aimed at them.

There's a lot of people on here who want to quickly shut down any talk, or conversation that they think is inappropriate. So what's the point in this place, or indeed having an opinion?

The poster I referred to won't have questions asked about selection (because Peet knows best) and we can't talk about a potential issue that might impact that club like this either. Add that to not being able to talk about stadium ownership (because it won't change anything and IL knows best).

Let's just stick to arguing with Saints fans instead.
