(Why 'of course'? Anybody'd have to be around minimum 40 years old more or less to have had a good handle on events at that time. I don't know your age)

And from all the reasons,  excuses, lies, complaints, accusations, justifications, allegations, myths, exaggerations and nonsense that was put forward at that time as to how and why super league was invented, that is what you took out of it?

From a Sky point of view, yes.

Im sure there were other reasons from the clubs point of view, and even from a playing point of view. But thats the niche Sky saw us filling. 

There is only two real reasons that we would be more attractive to a tv company in the summer than the winter. That it is the football offseason and the alignment with the NRL. Neither are things we take advantage of.

I know a big cheese at Sky and they are extremely pleased with the way it’s played out with the BT deal and the Premier League.

Whether it means more money for us must remain doubtful. They will probably use this to put pressure on other sports.

In the end it’s up to RL to make it a more attractive product that is worth paying more for.

 

Camembert or Stilton?

In which case the OP would be null and void and our worries pointless.

But some of the points made on here are still valid.

There does seem a lot of assumptions about the inherent weakness of TGG's position and that's very interesting in itself.

 

No that’s not the case, the remaining 2 packages didn’t even meet the reserve the PL put on it due to lack of interest. They’re now scrambling to get what they can for them
