In Topic: Should RL look at going to four quarters?

Today, 12:33 PM

I think in warm weather a water break makes sense.. Ref's do tend to show a bit of consideration when its stupid hot and allow a bit of a breather at scrums and to take on fluids etc..

If 4 quarters made the game a better spectacle i'd be for it, but until we tried it i guess we wouldn't know. In Aus they are constantly going on about increasing the fatigue factor to allow space to develop and the games to become more open.. which goes against having 4 quarters where players would have more time to recover and eliminate that potential fatigue, so i guess it depends on what side of the fence you sit on regarding that argument.

Personally i think two 40min half's are fine, and currently, i don't think quarters would change the game for the better, certainly not in the UK, where i think too many of our players are lazy enough without giving them the opportunity of more frequent rest periods.

Regarding refreshments and merchandise, clubs could quite easily make this more available to fans while the game is on.. they just need to be a bit more creative about how they sell to their consumers.

Same for advertising, if you watch American sports you see ads appear across the top/bottom of the screen while live sport is being broadcast, and it generally doesn't cause any interference with the game.. so again, there are more opportunities there if increased TV advertising was needed.. we've got big screens at every live game on SKY and the BBC.. yet we never see any sponsorship/advertising on that.. again, another opportunity if we needed it.


In Topic: Super League logo question

Today, 10:24 AM

Does seem a bit odd that the SL logo on the first utility lock-up logo is different to what we've had previously. Can't recall anyone ever announcing a rebrand of SL.

Wouldn't be at all surprised to see the previous branding back whenever the next sponsor is announced. Think someone just dropped the ball on this occassion. Unless there has been a rebrand and i missed it.
