    Magic Night Out

    What a great advert for League One Rugby League. Great work by Newcastle Thunder and the supporters and fans of both clubs for setting the new Kingston Park attendance record. A tremendous amount of work went into engaging and promoting the game. That hard work was certainly rewarded tonight.

    I suppose I could find you and Rob tomorrow. Do you both have the free bus passes these days? ☺

    Magic Night Out

    Over 3,700 tickets now sold. Fantastic effort from Newcastle Thunder.

    League restructure plans / TV money (merged threads)

    Please read what I posted. I specifically applied your question to Bradford and no one else.

    League restructure plans / TV money (merged threads)

    No, not at all. My reply was to your question of "do you think they'd get more money if they went it alone" which in Bradford's case I think they would. I can't stress strongly enough that there's a real sense of solidarity between the Championship and League One clubs at present.
  8. The interview will be on the Bulls soundcloud account after Friday's game.

    It's worth pointing out that it's only the Super League clubs that want the 8s removed because they can now stare at jeopardy in the face. In response to your question, in Bradford's case for League One this season (£75k central funding) then yes it would.
  10. You can hear my interview with Eric Perez before Friday's main Newcastle vs Bradford Live Call. Some interesting developments happening in Florida.

    They can't change the league structure until the end of 2021 due to the Sky Sports contract for the Super 8s. Which Sky like and don't want to change. All this talk of SL 1 and SL 2 is just nonsense. The Super League clubs took the deal on the table for the Super 8s and the increase in Sky Sports central funding until 2021. Just because Toronto, Toulouse, London and Leigh are now in a strong position to successfully challenge the likes of Huddersfield, Catalans, Salford, Wakefield and Widnes, doesn't mean the Super League clubs have the right to shut the door. Hypocrisy at its finest at play.

    Ian Lenagan wants a 10 team Super League, who will in effect control the game from top to bottom. As Andrew Chalmers has already made clear - there is ZERO interest or support for this 'Lenagan Vision'

    Magic Night Out

    Newcastle Thunder are on course to break their attendance record next Friday night when the Magic Night Out comes to Kingston Park. Already over 2,200 tickets have been sold for the Newcastle v Bradford game. Once again, further proof of life outside Super League.

    I tend to agree with you, but you've only focused on one third of my argument. It's one thing to accept that making a profit isn't the priority, especially for those clubs with wealthy benefactors like Huddersfield, St Helens and Warrington. But what about the decrease in commercial sponsorship and people through the turnstiles? That was part of the Championship and League One clubs argument. I personally speaking, think it's a fair argument.
