How about this..

Magic weekend...3 double headers at 3 venues

The etihad,st james park & stade municipal, toulouse...

The toulouse leg could be a triple header with toulouse playing too

I'd imagine something to do with government funding

 

 

that is actually bull$hit...

sport england even announced it does'nt matter...whether it england or GB EITHER SIDE WOULD BE SEEN AS THE "NATIONAL TEAM"...AND WOULD BE FUNDED ACCORDINGLY...the last GB kit,in 2007 , even had a sport england lottery logo on i!!

 

 

what did actually happen is that it freed up wales,scotland and ireland to ask the government sports bodies of wales,scotland & ireland for sports gransts...as well as being free for them to ask the RLEF & RLIF FOR GRANTS AS INTERDEPENDENT NATIONS...which they have done already

 

 

the RFL and "england" have set the celtic nations free...which is a good thing!

Theres a whole generation of kids now who haven't a clue what GB rugby league is..all they have seen is England RL

Then theres 20,30,40,50 year old fans who have only ever seen GB LOSE..


LEAVE GB TO ROT IN THE GROUND..we don't need it and the celtic nations don't need it...

#3142837 Koukash plans more signings and says 'Will reveal all next Tuesday'

Posted by roughyedspud on 18 June 2015 - 01:25 PM

An increase in press coverage for sure, but do any of the other clubs have funds to compete with him? Are other SL clubs at risk of over stretching their finances to try and compete with his big spending and signings?

Genuine question as in RU we have clubs with big cash reserves and the smaller clubs just cannot compete with big name signings and the spending power of these teams. In RU smaller clubs have the fall back of RFU backing from a vibrant international set-up but I am not sure RL has this to fall back on.

Is Koukash leading SL down a dangerous path? (and yes before anyone asks I do think RU is already heading down that path - but that's a discussion for the cross code forum)


I hate to break it too you but when he speaks its covered in the context that the "mad doctor is at it again"...and "whats he brainfarted now"...

The guy is a clown....and no one knows how much the guy is actually worth?,if id have won the £93m on last week euromillions id have scraped into the sunday times rich list.....the mad doctor as never appeared on it....why?

he's paying for it now though cos his body is breaking down....serves him right too




#3141904 NRL broadcast rights and Google

Posted by roughyedspud on 17 June 2015 - 03:06 AM

i said months ago that its beyond me why they,and we,don't stream games to the international markets via a NRL.TV / SL.TV platform and charge overseas fans a monthly subscription foregoing the need to deal with overseas tv companies..

 

 

like me for example...i pay £9.99 a month to watch premier sports online,its the only way i can watch it...i only watch NRL nothing else....of that £9.99 im paying premier sports how much of that does the NRL get? pennies i reckon...when they could get all of it of they had a NRL.TV iptv channel for international viewers...they are already halfway there with their NRL digital pass for aussie customers.. 




#3134718 Marquee Player rule approved

Posted by roughyedspud on 04 June 2015 - 07:12 AM

Do people think the Marquee Rule would've in one way or another persuaded players such as Chris Ashton and Kyle Eastmond to stay in League?

 

the likes of eastmond,ashton and any exciting 27-28 year old union players are ripe targets

 

they are just about to have their world cup but might struggle to make the next world cup...while we can offer them a new challenge,exciting rugby,a 4nations next year and world cup down under the year after and a decent wedge too...it would be wrong not to have a crack at them.

 

 

id love matt banahan to play league he'd be awesome....id give my left nut to see george north play league but only the NRL could afford him..and they tried to sign him during the lions tours but he'd signed with northampton

These 4-5 clubs should be able to spend what they want. This salary cap system does not work anyway. The lesser clubs aren't even touching the maximum allowed so how can it affect their youth policy?


The tv money all super league clubs will get next year will match the salary cap,thats the clubs biggest expediture paid for...

If clubs still struggle to run the rest of their operation on the gate money,corperate,sponsorships & advertising revenue (clubs are turning over anywhere between £3-7m plus atm ) then theres something seriously wrong
