    Many, including football, but keeping RL alive outside the Super Greed. Otherwise, what's the point? I mean that, even if we were to get there.

  1. Toulouse have the best chance but they won't. Toronto, no chance. As you were.

    So why do you want to enter SL?

    Thanks Alba, talked to a mate who attended, agrees with what you say and thinks this is the guy to take us forward. If I didn't have a video conference I would of been there but he said the place was packed. That was my worry that it wouldn't have been. Well done to everybody who attended. And the amount from the bucket collection at the end of the night was? Just kiddin.

    To wrap up, most people here are saying it's rocket science and if you apply in time there's no problem. But there obviously is. In the early days clubs suffered by not knowing the rules. Fair enough but players after that were still being denied entry. Let's leave it there and I really hope you get to SL. I'm not a troll, I honestly mean it. But boy, the first SL player to be denied entry or not taken on the plane because the club knows he will be denied entry for a minor infraction, for which he's already paid his dues, will not go down well. Let's see what happens. According to most people here, nothing will happen. I hope you're right. Then that will answer my original question and we're all happy.

    Thank you Derwent, that was my original question which no Toronto fan has been able, or wants, to address. I also love Dave T's analogy because as I understand it, he is correct.

    I agree and hey, we are not a pro team and thanks for the sympathy because we were a league one club last year. Who actually were the only team to visit Toronto twice in a season which cost us a shed load of money.

    Good point K, so why the problems with RL players being denied visas? Imagine the s..t that would of caused in the world press but..oh yeah, nobody worries about RL. If i'm trolling asking a valid point, why are you even reading, never mind replying?

    Spidey, please the OP from the start. This goes back to last season and i admit, my team, Barrow, was amongst the first to suffer at the hands of Canadian immigration laws. I'll also admit, we did not do due diligence on Canadian immigration laws and that was entirely our fault, which resulted in the team landing on Canadian soil and some players being denied entry. Again, that was our fault, but it was all new and it's a learning curve. My point is, other teams, SL, or not, will also face these problems. I'm just trying to find a way around these problems but it seems the Canada fans don't see a problem. Their laws are their laws which I respect, but it is not going to help the expansion of RL into their country.

    newbe, you also are missing the point. A minor infraction in UK means a big no no in Canada. That's the point. Do you agree with it or not? Jeez, it's me verses Canada at the moment but I think your immigration laws are wrong regards sporting events. Here's a question... What if you host a future Olympics? God, I can't think what your immigration are going to make of that. 30000 plus athletes and not one without a CR.

    K, sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Problem with filling forms is...well, if you don't know you never will.

    Well, i've been in England, where you've played all your cup games. And as Krzzystuff said, 'I would love to bring a CC game to Canada. Up to now, we've never had to be bothered to fill out a form.

    manu266, brilliant post. Been to the USA? Just checked my passport. 15 times in the last 12 years but never Canada. been in many a bar fight when I was younger but never in court for it. In those days whoever won just picked up the guy who lost and bought him a pint. Now, the snowflakes want £1 mill compo. Your point about our beautiful sport is bang on. Don't be sad for me but the players who can't play in your great country.

    So Bailey was allowed to play, just needed time to get it sorted out. What happens if a team is drawn away to Toronto in the Challenge Cup in two weeks? How long does it take? A month or so you say. Lazies and stupidity I don't think. Unless you're never allowed to play in the CC, which is probably the outcome if that is your answer. It's not inaction on the clubs parts, it's your immigration laws. You want to come into SL? Change your laws for one off matches.
