if the club are still having to pay rent and costs for the KC during lockdown, if i was Pearson id want to play our home games at home! why pay for something and not use it! travelling west every week and midweek would add more costs, same for HKR

no fans so no stewards, reserve/academy players to be used as ball boys.

dont agree with leeds hosting neutral games if they are playing there, especially if they are the away team too! same with saints and wire making their grounds available! if those clubs who pay rent for use of stadiums and still paying...then they should be within their rights to use it!

agree, that is why I suggested Bury and Keepmoat.

Wasn’t the plan, to play several matches at one venue I seem to remember Headingley was mentioned as one possible venue

Think you are correct but then Hetherington is so far up RFL only his feet are showing, therefore any income it generates will be straight his deep pockets. RFL funded Leeds for years with semis and final venues.


:NAUGHTY: more fake news....since 2000 Headingley has staged 3 CC semis, 2000,2002 and 2015

The Aussies are charging 22 dollars to have your picture in the seats at the stadium, I’m sure hull fans would lap that kind of stuff up. Just need to be more creative and less doom and gloom, I’m sure we can make up a match day income of some sort, just need to get the games going and get creative

Walton street car park, cinema screen style drive in for the rugby, £20 a car, food drink delivered to cars, sounds a little crazy ha, but in crazy times, why not

Sorry but you’re sooooo wrong maybe true this century but my memory goes way back. See how many Yorkshire Cups and John Player Finals were held there plus Internationals. We practically funded Leeds for years when you couldn’t fill the South Stand.

... would anyone really want to go when you can stay at home, hassle free, with all mod cons like toilets, sofas and a tv screen with an unobstructed view?

And how much more would it cost to setup?

Wouldn’t be for everyone, and toilets could be the problem, but I reckon you’d get plenty up for it. Costs wise I don’t reckon it would be to bad hiring a couple of big screens for a few hours, I’m sure Pearson as plenty of contacts. Everyone singing from the cars, car horns honking, great atmosphere, what more do you want haha your points are very valid though

Creating huge amounts of localised pollution that increases respiratory deaths due to cars running constantly to stay warm/demisting windscreens is not a very good way to go watch a rugby match really is it?
Add in the total chaos of congestion, people not being able to see the screen from a car whilst in the back seats for sure and unless you have a convertible and for a significant number you'd be lucky if you can see all the screen even from the front seats.

Also who is going to fund the massive cost of a screen big enough so that people hundreds of metres away can see the action?

Where is the food coming from, we don't have an existing catering facility, that's the stadium management, so are you going to use independent traders, how are the club going to manage a cut of sales, how many people would you need to employ to serve potentially thousands. How is that even safe given the fairground land is in a shocking state at the best of times, add in that it's unlit so how are you going to locate any given vehicle easily in the dark with these mobile servers?

Sure, let's come up with ideas but 'drive in' isn't viable financially, nor from a health and safety or even logistical POV either.

Streaming in highest quality possible on a PPV is the only way to go at the moment, sell the match to watch at a later date for those not able to watch it live.
