  1. So who have they signed then? They're 10/1 for promotion (about mid-table) so you'd assume someone in the know thinks they're getting a few players in.
  2. Chicken and egg. Talk it up and people will be willing to fund it through sponsorship, turn up in numbers and generate revenue, then these sorts of rewards will be available. Problem is, some expect someone to just pop up out of no where and offer this reward when the event itself for too long has been treated by one side as an unwanted pre-season event that affects their preparation for what they consider truly important. How in earth can you build up a product with that sort of blatantly open attitude to the event? It ain't gonna happen. And it's a damn shame.
  3. Having seen the back of the Wigan away shirt, there shouldn't be a clash. It's a blue patch rather than white, so predominantly blue rather than white.
  4. A predominately white shirt against another predominantly white shirt doesn't clash?
  5. There's a reason why teams don't just change the colour of their shorts when the shirts clash...
  6. That's a better pic. Still think there should be more difference though personally. If they have a big white block on the back, you're only going to be able to tell teams apart by the shorts at times. Wakefield's home kit has blue shorts but white shirt. It's going to clash with both those kits horrendously.
  7. I can't see the shorts on the pic. Usually these types of kits have a big white block on the back so you can see the number.
  8. Isn't the idea of avoiding a colour clash to make sure the kits they're wearing aren't 50% the same colour? I've not seen the back, nor shorts, but I'm having horrible flashbacks to 2008 when three different teams came to the KC in a white kit to play a Hull team in a black and white shirt but white shorts and socks. Didn't have a clue who has the ball half the time. When the back of these hooped designs are often a big white block so you can see the number, it's an absolute nightmare to tell teams apart at a distance when they've got their back to you.
  9. An ultra-pixelated Minecraft-style design would go down wonders!
  10. I suppose we were lucky it got cancelled in 2020. That was the original venue for the stag do and I don't have very kind friends so God knows what I'd have been made to wear! (Not a Rovers shirt though, they aren't that cruel)
  11. Didn't seem to be an issue in the middle 8s. The upset was a huge deal.
  12. Considering it was supposed to be in 2020, I think I'm out of extensions!
  13. I'm guessing because Toronto were due to be a big part of this and they're not from the USA, so playing under the USARL banner would be counter productive you what they're hoping to achieve in Canada. As long as they're the body got the professional game on that continent, working with the USARL and CRL, I don't see a great issue with it.
  14. This question always gets asked in response to a question about the profile of a sponsor. The choice isn't between bargain basement or luxury items, there's many many shades between. I know as a sport we've struggled to attract top end brands, but have done well with middle brands. And I could understand if it was one of our lower-profile clubs trying to break into a national sponsor. But this is our treble winning champions, who already have had many national sponsor over the years.
  15. They are the council colours, hence why they're on the MKM Stadium currently (although coincidentally are the MKM colours too). Does make them look like a skip though That diagonal band is horrendous. It just looks wonky rather than intentional, especially with the way they've got the sponsor logo in there. Definitely wouldn't go well with a Home Bargains sponsor!
  16. Well this lasted long... https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/new-york-pull-out-of-north-american-rugby-league/
  17. I think it's more the name of the brand rather than the brand itself. I shop their every week, love the place. But behind to lock you into a demographic when we're trying to appeal to more, much in the way we tried to move away from alcohol. We complain about attracting people with cash to the game, but then plaster a store that calls itself as cheap in the name on our treble champions' shirts in the least subtle of ways. When did image stop being important? When we gave up trying to improve it?
  18. What are you saying the next step forward would be then? More semi-pro clubs in London to represent these different areas? If West Yorkshire can handle 11 clubs, then London and the South East should be looking at more than 2 given its size. In reality of the game's appeal, most of the area would have to be described as unserved.
  19. It does, I agree. It's more a knock on the game itself rather than Saints, who are obviously getting a good deal out of it. But if the best we can get these days is a budget store, and plastered on the kit in a very obtrusive way at that (no effort to blend the logo in with the kit's design), then we're not in a good place. If it was just the font and not the huge block with completely contrasting colours to the shirt, then I could probably live with it more. Hull currently make their sponsors logos fit in with the design and it looks far better.
  20. Unfortunately it's already been planned. Was supposed to be in 2020, don't think she'll allow me to move the venue after all this. I'll just have to dump her.
