Wondering what other people think on here does SL get more terrestrial coverage in the news than the old RL did?
I think it gets nothing like what it used to even on local news Featherstone used to be on on a Monday and Friday night. Now even if Leeds play a big team and win it might get on.
As for national news we only seem to get a mention when there is a negative story ie drugs etc.
As a sport it seems to me more insular than ever before, 15 years of 'selling the game' to the nation has been wasted and someone really should have checked to see if anyone wanted to buy!
