If they are not good enough for SL, then relegate them...Its that simple.

"We'll all better off" No we wont, we'll be exactly the same or maybe even worse off.

To enable us to negotiate a strong multi year tv deal in the UK, France and Canada. Tv networks are only interested in showing the top league, hence no Championship RL is on tv (other than Toronto who currently film their own games for Canadian and British networks to spread RL throughout Ontario and Canada)

French and Canadian networks won’t want to sign up to showing RL when their team/teams could be relegated from the top tier.

We will all be better off financially if French and Canadian clubs are guaranteed Super League status.


Please explain why ?

What utter guff.
French networks have had a decade and more to sign a lucrative TV deal and haven't, whilst 7,000 people at a beer festival in a council stadium with no seats and no roof but a hot-dog canon is hardly going to have the networks queuing up to sign PAYED FOR TV deals......we lost London and SKY didn't say a dickie-bird about it......if our existing broadcast partner can get us on the cheap, why if christ's name would another network want to pay more.

Remember. Toronto in SL next year won't be paying for away clubs to travel/stay, but they will be taking their pound of flesh from the SKY pool....if they rock up empty handed, I expect them to be gone inside a couple of years........
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Was the existence of a canadian based team vital for the future of RL, say, 20 years ago? Why now all of a sudden? We wouldn't even be talking about a canadian based team if some rich guy hadn't decided to create one off his own back a couple of years ago.

At least Toronto, Toulouse and London give the game a different dimension and something to talk about. Without their distraction, we would be talking about a sport at the top level dying on its booty, year on year on year.
