Super League 2014 for Fev ?

72 posts in this topic

For people whose eyes are not as good as they were, is the photograph taken in London? Big coincidence then.

Dunno, but it was certainly taken before he arrived at Fev. ;)

Who's won the penis measuring competition? I've just bought a vernier to join in if I'm not too late.

Hope it has a depth gauge on it.

The YEP man making such a mistake may have been suffering from QATAR. So it's Dubai to him. Hope Feisal didn't make a wrong turning and should have been at Halifax all the time.

Always happened, Steve. Players on legal wages being made up by wives holding "cleaning, catering and admin"jobs.

Or jobs working for directors of clubs, Bob! In the mid seventies I worked with a guy who was best mate of Phil Brunt, the Cas Vice-Chairman at the time. He told me that Steve "Knocker" Norton used to "work" on one of his gangs in his building firm. Let's just say he did a little bit of work for him, but it kept him at Cas for a while. Similar stuff went on at most of the big clubs with star players before full-time came in.

It has already been categorically stated by the RFL that Toulouse will start in SL2 in 2015 so you can take them out of the equation. They'd have even less chance than us of putting a squad together for 2014 as far as I can see.

Pie in the sky for 2014 IMO. Never mind what the RL have stated, I do believe that Toulouse will be allowed in, along with the non relegation clause as per Catalans. They will replace the Broncos and I am positive that the RL would not be too disappointed to lose such as Wakefield and probably other clubs who are living in the "grey" area, financially.

I believe that in the future, the RL and Sky, require only the selected top dogs in SL, the others making up a seperate league.

Can't see it Bob. I went to the RFL consultation meeting a few weeks ago and Rimmer stated that Toulouse will definitely enter the competition in SL2. How will they assemble a squad fit for SL1 in time for next season?

By the same token,Terry, how could Fev assemble one?.

Just what I have been saying, they can't, it's just PR by nahaboo. Nothing wrong with stating your intentions though.

If say fev get in for next season? lose 80% of their games and finish bottom and so start the new 12 - 8 split format in 2015 in the second division would they get parachute payments?

 

Basically is it financially better for fev to be in SL next season whether we are ready or not?   Obviously Feisal says there's be investment for players etc if we were in SL but we'd also get more sky money.

 

I'm skeptical we'd be let in anyway but i think a year playing at a higher level would be far better preparation for the new format coming in so i hope we do!!!!

True! Many of our established fans say they're not bothered about SL, and some say they'd rather not have it, but many of the new fans might turn away again if it didn't look like we were pulling out all the stops in an effort to get there? If we try and fail, they will have something to moan about and stay with us, but if we don't try, human nature will take over!

As a Swinton fan with no axe to grind, here's my two-penneth on this interesting debate. As SL is looking to reduce to 12 clubs, if London fold there's no reason to replace them at all for 2014. I'm sure SL clubs would prefer to keep London's share of Sky cash in-house and go with 13 teams. Then next year we could try something really novel. i.e. whoever wins our league gets promoted! (provided clearly stated minimum standards are met). With 2 down from SL. This would tie in with the 2015 licensing agreement & no championship club would have gained an unfair advantage. I just hope my team is still in the division!

It would be very difficult Bob, I agree, but I think considerably more so for Toulouse given the poor standard of French RL. We'd struggle, no doubt about it if we were given the go ahead but if we were relegated we'd at least start the 2015 season with the highest level of central funding so nothing to lose in my opinion. They'll probably stick to 13 teams anyway for next year.

aye, Tetty and take an extra slice of Sky money into the bargain. The less, the merrier for those top established teams.

If they stick to 13 teams, I wonder if they'll divide London's share of Sky money between themselves, or whether they'll do the sensible thing and save it over until 2015, so there's more to go round in the interim restructure?

To be hoped they don't divide London's gate money between themselves or else they'll end up owing.
