Well my friend it is BAD without one and outside of all the spin from the RFL regarding partners etc most SL clubs are not happy bunnies.Most have no idea of the amounts of money involved FOXY/BRUT etc and also have had to give up valuable perimeter signage space to the RFL that they could have sold (Estimated £ 300/400K over all the SL clubs)Rugby Union has a naming rights sponsor and 5/6 partners the only reason the RFL hark on about partners is their inability to find a major naming rights sponsor as one club recently said this whole mess has been caused by the STOBART freebie deal why should anyone want to pay decent money when it was given away for free last season.No doubt more spin soon:(((CM

What spin? If it was that disastrous, the game would have stopped by now. They have had offers - if they were as badly off as you keep pretending you know they would have bitten someones hand off.

Oh god. Canetmole at it again. Yes, we're a bit sh"t, sack everyone and start again. There's nothing good about anything in RL in the UK. And we're all gonna die someday.

Isnt the new commercial guy an ousider? New blood as people often demand.

Whilst he has overseen succesful deals with blue chip companies, surprise surprise he hasnt delivered them in abundance for RL. Maybe it isnt quite as easy as people think.

In reality the BETFAIR deal should have gone through the Catalan Dragons did not attend the meeting and RL voted to accept the STOBART deal on their behalf making it a tie and then used the chairman,s casting vote.BTW on another issue am i going blind or did i not see a Dragons player in the SL pre-season photos shoot?CM

I thought they couldn't advertise gambling in France? So why would they vote for it anyway? And Remi Casty, the captain, was there. In a Catalan kit funnily enough.

On the subject of Catalan, has anything happened with creating a French pro league? I kept seeing bits and bobs about it last year, but all has gone quiet.

A French pro league would be a massive boost to the european game and would presumeably save the Catalan team a fortune in travelling costs.

Was it Al-Jazzera that were proposing to fund it via TV rights?

Catalans wouldn't be in it. The salary cap would be much smaller to start with from what I read. Would love to see it happen. Catalans & Toulouse in SL + 6-8 teams in the French League would see a huge boom down there. Once the French League builds in profile, CD & TO could return and we have a genuine European element.

So we base all our sponsors on the laws of another country? What cobblers some people talk.

You base your sponsors on what is acceptable to ALL the clubs in your comp so according to your theory the dragons and soon to be Toulouse SL dont matter.CM

Why not consider other imaginary teams inclusion in SL? What is the law regarding advertising aftershave in Czech Republic? A team from there will be in SL next year - FACT.
