Hardly the kind of evidence to convince many. Lewis, finger on the pulse, really? His guess is no better than yours.
He ran the game he had the kind of insights to the game I'd die for. To make that statement Larry flies in the face of reality. Lewis had access to all the facts and finances and opinions of the top sports people in general and including all the chairmen of the game itself, SKY and major sponsors.
You have to ask yourself where would this game have gone if say Branson had bankrolled London fully through to today, If the people in Paris who could have made a go of it had decided to do so, and if South Wales investors had got on board with Crusaders.
I'll tell you where, onwards and upwards with new fans in their tens of thousands and new streams of top players and the chance to revive international RL in the northern hemisphere and attract new sponsors.
To hear people on here rail against France, Wales and London and say how Sheffield, leigh and Halifax are "well run" "profitable" and will make great additions to Superleague when in reality they were all "basket cases x 10" is beyond belief.
Maybe RL's worst enemy is some of it's own supporters?
