Although that tells us absolutely nowt. Would be nice to actually see some facts and figures to back up what York City Knights RLFC are apparently going to lose overall.
Personally, I can think of nothing grimmer than carrying on at HS in it's current state with "the club" surviving from a few functions in a grubby bar which help us scrape by at Champ 1 level. Moving to BC for a couple of years and promoting the club in a positive light gives us chance to claw back some of the lost supporters before we move back to a decent, modern facility at Monks Cross which should help us at least double current attendances - surely that increase to 1000 average alone will make more money than the non-matchday functions in BAR13?.
Needs to be some proper foresight about the future of RL and sport in general in York, not just how it benefits certain people.

Someone on the YCFC forum has stated: "The Knights will get their matchday revenue from all stadium facilities. YCFC will do likewise. YCFC will also realise the revenue from non-match days."
I think it's the last bit which is the problem, basically we get revenue from Bar13 when it's hired out for functions etc on non-matchdays but we won't when the new stadium comes, YCFC will. Difficult to sort it fairly TBH, only way is for the Knights to have their own bar/function suite to do with as they wish a bit like the Phoenix Bar at Hunslet.
Fair play, York were much hungrier & easily outclassed Hunslet today! Although still struggling to understand why your players were celebrating like you won the league today and playing 'we are the champions' over the tannoy? Yes they've just given Hunslet a good pasting but there's a long way to go and all you've basically done is given them some extra motivation.
From today's performance Hunslet need a lot more than just motivation. A couple of half back who can actually play rugby wouldn't go amiss.
