Not sure how Sale are living off Salford. It has benefitted Salford having Sale as co-tenants.

 

Sharing with Sale worked out extremely well for Stockport County.


That's me.  I'm done.

I put this on the other forum

If the naming rights go to exclusively to sale then where is the incentive for Salford to use the name, what will the penalty be if Salford continue to call it the Salford City Stadium.

 

Good point.  

 

I see no reason why Salford need to use the name in any significant way.

Salford didn't have the cash to pay rent, let alone naming rights.

As with other instances, such as the club shop, the Sharks took this opportunity to sneak in through the back door.

Illegal? No. Underhand? Yes.

What's the situation with the club shop?

Underhand? Hardly. Opportunistic, yes. Good business, definitely. Salford would have done the same if they'd been able, but they weren't.

It helped County survive and meant B Kennedy lost a lot of money on a football club in a stadium that was in a bad state. Anyway, don't County own the ground now?

see the crowd last week for Sale's friday night clash with Newcastle was 9000. Would be good for SL if Salford could grow to that

It wasn't 9000, more like 7K and some - there were a lot of, er, inflated, attendances last weekend. 

Go to Aviva premiership website where they seem to have forgotten to use the RU calculator and have the real numbers

For me this is a non issue, No one calls it the City of Salford Stadium most refer to it as Barton. By the same token only TV will use the name. It's like Belle Vue, no idea what it's name is at present it's Belle Vue to me.

 

Salford being run on a shoestring before December 2012 has led to Sale having the rights, but don't know if this is a good deal as I don't know if they sold them for more than they paid.

 

Sale haven't really caused too many issues, other than highlight how poor Salford have been.

 

Hope the doctor will get a shop on site and see more Devil branding around the place.

Good point.  

 

I see no reason why Salford need to use the name in any significant way.

Except, maybe on their website, under directions to ground: follow road signs for AJ Bell Stadium.

Why over state... as surely the tax man would take note.  I have always assumed that clubs would want to under state...

Seems like you're assuming that every attendee pays full price for tickets, or even pays anything for tickets, and maybe you're also assuming that everybody who has paid for a ticket is actually there, but just like the words to the song, 'it ain't necessarily so'. Official attendances are a dark art and would only form a small part of income on the balance sheet.

I would take the 9000  figure with a pinch of salt.

If Sale try messing with the good doctor they will get their come uppence with interest.

Sale are a parasitic organisation.   They've sucked Stockport County dry and now moved on to Salford.  I hope Koukash is up for a fight, because Sale are a pretty low bunch in the way they handle themselves.

 

Stockport County have much bigger problems than Sale in the area. Maybe the whole thing was a bit suss, but a top flight rugby club would have always won out against a club like Stockport.

But yer right a lot of assumptions on my behalf....
