Maybe a comparison between the last 17 years and the previous 17 will tell you how entrenched SL is becoming. Only 4 clubs have won the SL title but 8 won in the previous equivalent period.
Only 4 teams have one it in the last 22 years!! Which other sport has a record as bad as that other than the Scottish premier league? The other thread is already scoffing at what they're up to but we have only had 2 more winners of the league in the last 22 years.
It will be 50 years since Warrington won it, 37 years Salford, 30 years Hull, 28 years Hull KR, 24 years for Widnes, etc etc etc. A number of Championship clubs have managed it in the meantime so what exactly then is a big club? What exactly is the SL all about?
Carry on regardless by all means.
To be fair, we can spin things how we like.
In the last 17 years football has had 4 champions. In the previous 17 years they had 7. This is out of 20 teams, 4 out of 20 is worse than 4 out of 12/14 that SL has had. Sport is much more about money nowadays, times have changed.
We should also consider that Wire have also finished top of the league during this period.
Our record of 5 different league leaders from 12/14, or 4 different Champions is ok. Could be better if Leeds didn’t have this freak GF record of theirs!
