In Topic: They just don't get it.......

Do you actually read anything or is it that you're in another time zone and replying to a thread or post from several days back? I think you've made your points and I don't really know what else to say to you on the matter. It was suggested by a JOURNALIST LEAGUE MIGHT PRODUCE FREAK PLAYERs THAT INTEREST OTHER SPORTS! I do hope that clears the issue up for you dude. Next week I'll post a thread called why I prefer league see you there!

In post #31 http://www.totalrl.c...t-it/?p=3018056 you made this statement:

 

 I think there was a lot of mileage in the idea that RL might produce players valued by other sports. Some took it as a chance to deny it might be the case

 

I am merely asking, who are those that have denied in this thread RL might produce players valued by other sports?

What I call something has nothing to do with you actually! In the first instance I only mentioned it as a means of saying that wasn't the point of the thread and when someone did refer to funny onion I made a point of only replying to RL related parts of his post. I made the mistake of thinking someone else wanted to talk RL when he clearly didn't which sent me down a path I did not want to go, which is why I made my last post the way I did!  I think there was a lot of mileage in the idea that RL might produce players valued by other sports. Some took it as a chance to deny it might be the case, some came up with ideas that were logical and well reasoned and some saw it as an opportunity to have a go at anything they could possibly find in the whole of forever that they saw as wrong! 

And so it goes!

Who exactly claimed other sports aren't interested in some league players?

I'm aware of that but if the deal was negotiated as exclusive then it should be honoured. You can't sell another sponsorship even if it doesn't come with naming rights.

Do you have a source saying the current deal is exclusive? How much time is it even for?

It seems to me you've decided having that team is a bad idea and you're just clutching at straws trying to support your opinion with "evidence" blown out of proportion or based on all sort of assumptions, like the players not wanting the free vacation across the pond because in 21st century Britain they still practice serfdom and getting days off from work is unheard of.

No, but that's not to say that the existing title sponsor would be okay about it even if it was. They sponsored a tournament outright, if we are now saying that this is to be shared then I'm sure they'll be unhappy about that.

There more than one way to sponsor a tournament. Naming rights for the tournament is just one of them.

Has anyone said it's a title sponsor?

No. But don't let that stop counting against making this happen.
