About Bullish Giant Rhino

  1. That describes how it will be in 2015, though. I was talking about 2017 onwards. As of 2017, all Championship clubs will get £230K per year. Not sure what they'll get if they reach the second tier of 8.
  2. It says on the BBC website that the SL clubs are due to receive £146 million over the 5 years, Having done some maths, I've worked this out to be roughly £29 million a year, and thus around £2.3 million per club a year. That is a huge increase! Very positive news!
  3. I reckon that the Championship clubs that reach the '2nd tier of 8' will get a slightly less, but not too much so, amount of money as the SL clubs. The question is will SL tier 1 get more TV money as those team have made the top 8?
  4. The distrubution in this deal is key. The last deal was £127M over 5 years, this is roughly £200M over 5 years, as of 2017. That means at least £14M more is being pumped into SL every year. However, this time there are 12 more clubs to feed. And the RFL still need to feed themselves. For that reason I can't see the SL clubs getting any more than £500,000 more from Sky per year. So not that great.
  5. 2 things here. First it's no guarantee there will be less than 14 clubs in 2015. Ian Lenegan wants 14, according to all our mags, and at the last time of knowing he had at least 5 other clubs backing him up- the so called 'rebel clubs'. To quote Gary Hetherington 'nothing is a formality in rugby league' Secondly, like I say it's yes but no. Any club without a money men will struggle. That's the reality. We're at a crisis stage and in the short-term we need to look to solutions externally. People could've said years 'what if Caddick stopped investing?' well, he has, years ago, and Leeds are still thriving. Other owners, though, may demand a bigger cap. The same 'Caddick' argument will crop up, but the fact is they're needed.. More money comes into the game with a higher cap and so owners do end up paying less on that cap
  6. Life can be strange sometimes..
  7. So you think after the current development they'll level out the slope? On a slightly more bizarre note, do Batman and Robin live in Fev?
  8. On what, a new stand which hasn't even been planned yet? You've lost me
  9. I would argue that 10 years will do plenty of damage. For me the largest reason for the 'recession' was ponzi-scheming
  10. Will they clad the back of the stands?
  11. Contrary to what most think, I actually believe the economy is heading for tougher times still and is getting worse. In my opinion, the recession will continue to bite away more than ever in the future. Impossible to put dates on these things, though.
  12. What will be the nature of the PO Road end redevelopment, out of interest?
  13. Haha. I wish! I'm not. Can I have £5 please?
  14. Any ideology of SL which includes less teams than 12 is so unrealistic it's not even worth debating. Like I said at the start of the hour (hehe) we need more money in the game and we need more rich owners in influencing the cap, in other words increasing it, to make this happen.
