    Widnes problems

    I am sure DB could have put Leigh into administration and was possibly advised to, but he managed to off load around 9 very large contracts as players were allowed to seek alternative clubs just prior to the deadline and agreed deals with the majority that remained until the end of the season. It wasn't pleasant and did look ugly but in hindsight it did save the club whether people agreed with the way it was done or not. It also avoided any local suppliers getting screwed as far as I know and started 2019 as a part time club, ready to climb again. TBH there isn't much point in spending excessive amounts of cash this year. Just let Toronto get on with it.
  2. So they have just signed 2 Leeds players (Walters and Ormondroyd) and are now also after Brierley. I seem to remember a few years ago, they signed 4 Leeds players on one year contracts who then returned to Leeds but still used their Dual Reg arrangement with Leeds. Was that a way of just using more than the allowed number of DR/loan players. For a club that has lost over half a million quid in fundng, they aren't half managing to splash some cash.
  3. Thats quite true, hopefully they don't all think like you . Incidentally some have paid he whole annual fee instead of monthly
  4. A recent update was that the LISA 'recruitment drive' netted 130 new members in just a few days which equated to around 12k for the year, so just 3k short of the suggested amount as the club stated they would not need it all at once. So I would say this looks like it has been a qualified success regardless of what you think of the method.

    Cas stadium plans!!

    £10M cost for the stadium?? The construction costs for the LSV Stadium were given as £17.5M and that opened in 2008. Either costs have dramatically come down over the last 10 years (unlikely) or something is not quite right.

    FREE tickets to watch Toronto Wolfpack

    Such a shame they can't play their first home game in their native country. The players must be terribly homesick having already spent seven months away from 'home'.

    Toronto (Merged threads)

    650 STs .... does that make you bigger than most SL clubs? Do any SL clubs give away 4000 free tickets? (source BBC Business Pages)
  8. Which is why you come under the banner of major Cretin, Mr Habitual Leigh Hater. Nope it still doesn't say what he said it did, and coming across several more of your posts spread over this board I notice you just can't keep Leigh out of your posts whether the subject matter is related or not ..... you're funny
  9. So back to the original thread topic title. Derek didn't threaten to bar or ban anybody. He simply said no arrangements had been made or forthcoming and invited contact from either Premier/The RFL or both. As I understand it Leigh were not the first team to contact the RFL .... but hey that doesn't stop the incredibly sad blinkered usual suspects on here .... they really do need help

    Getting off on a technicality is usually a sign that you have no other reliable defence isn't it? Why avoid any drugs test? Bet Hardaker and Chase are kicking themselves
  11. Didn't see the post from days ago, but it does not say 'we want it on TV'. A very similar twist on words to the headline 'Beaumont wants to ban Premier from filming it. So neither the headline or Krzzys statements is factual in anyway whatsoever. Spending too much time in that beer tent Krzzy. Maybe there is something to this Trump 'fake news'. Anyway in 2019 it will be Manchester Wolfpack. In fact they could call them that now and praise them for taking 9 games on the road, as I expect when it comes to the Middle 8s, they will all be played in the UK due to time constraints, and complaints from the other teams
  12. Have they? Just looked at Cal Samedays twitter. I see nothng

    2018 fixtures

    So TWP haven't sold any season tickets yet then? With the rumours of a request to play the majority of their home games in Bradford it gets better. No idea if the rumours are true but there has to be something in the fact that at least 2 Championship clubs have warned there supporters to hang fire on booking flights etc to Toronto. Looks like we might end up with a Canadian team funded by Aussies with no Canadian players (they can only field 5 max anyway??????) playing their home games at Odsal. I wondered why Mr Perez had recently distanced himself a little from the club.

    2018 fixtures

    ...... and that is why this whole thing is a joke. All the fixtures have been timetabled to mainly look after Toronto. Normally if a club does not have anything arranged for their home games they are deemed not to meet the criteria ask Sheffield. All the arrangements are also usually required to be in place prior to the season starting. I can just see it. OK how can we start the season? I know lets generate some bad blood. Toronto v Leigh first up, that should be juicy. OK Toronto have said if we don't let them play all home games together we are taking our ball home and ##### up your competition. To be saying someones fixture may be in Toronto or Montreal or even New York but we will let you know in a few months is comical. As well as Halifax saying don't make arrangements yet, Leigh have also tweeted exactly the same.

    2018 fixtures

    I would guess that is something to do with the challenge cup and the point at which the bottom 4 SL teams in 2017 enter. The 4 clubs, Hull KR, Catalans, Widnes and Warrington were the bottom 4 so I am no longer guessing
