  1. Wasps sniffing around Coventry Bears?

    Isn't that what they do every time they don't want to cough the going rate. Northampton last time wasn't it. That worked out. Had a quick look. This is the up to date position. The lack of extended lease actually down to ongoing court case relating to Wasps purchase of the ground.
  2. Restructure 2019?

    Heard that some time ago. There’s concern about number of small clubs being supported beyond their ability to make a contribution. Makes you wonder how Coventry and the new Bristol club fit in all that. I suspect there’s quite a few traditional clubs looking over their shoulder as well that appear to exist to give owners an income stream. If you think of the “plan” to have a 2 tier SL of 20 clubs, you start to see how revolutionary how all this starts to look.
  3. Proposal put forward to cut SL to 10

    Could do. 13 home and away. Or specify the 13th game as on the road.
  4. Proposal put forward to cut SL to 10

    SL 1 and SL 2. £2m per club in SL 1 £1 per club in SL 2 £30m per year will be affordable from current contract. As for the fixture format, that looks like 3 x fixtures for 27 games.
  5. 14 team SL with Toronto, London and Barrow in would certainly increase the geographic spread.
  6. OurLeague

    It’s last week’s idea. Or the trainee has moved on.
  7. Headingley redevelopment

    Depends how they do it. Looking at an airial view if the 6 semis were demolished and assuming a rectangle starting no further out that the existing perimeter on the North Stand side it’s wouldn’t encroach a lot further out than the ginnel on the South Stand side. It fact it would probably only bite into the gardens on the south side. The rest of the land could be left as public space and planted to hide the stand. That said, not convinced I would want to live next door. And what’s the Carnegie Stand hold. 4,500, perhaps 3,500 in the east? £25 a ticket. Even full that’s only £1.2 a season. Carnegie cost £7m. Perhaps West would cost same including Houses. Doable?
  8. Headingley redevelopment

    The houses could purchased and the ginnel diverted behind the back of any new structure without much issue I would think. Looks like there's probably 3 sets of semis or 6 houses and appear to be selling for £250,000 a pop. Or £1.5m before you draw a plan. I would suspect it comes down to cash and willingness.
  9. One active directorship for a dissolved company?
  10. Great RL quotes

  11. Salford v Catalans in New York

    Well they’re going to be knackered because that’s who’ll they intend to be playing in 2 years. Not sure average Joe’s knowledge of anywhere outside US is going to be worldbeating anyway. Does it matter what they’re called as long as they have Tigers, Red Devil or Dragon at the end?
  12. Will Leeds break SL attendance record?

    Early season. Hull KR travelling hoards. Loads of publicity. Novelty of playing at Elland Road. 16k is same as usual isn’t it?
  13. Salford v Catalans in New York

    Where are these Manchester and Barcelona teams you’re talking about? The game appears to be in a few months.
  14. Salford v Catalans in New York

    Just need Trump to tweet about #cheeseeatingsurrendermonkeys and the job’s a good ‘un.
  15. Well, that’ll help the headlines. Had to google it and first thing up was this “a depressant or tranquillizing drug, especially a barbiturate.” For balance it must be this (but still not really sure what they do!)
