  1. Used to really be into in the 90's and early 2000's, find it very sterile now. Will keep an eye on results and watch MOTD every so often and if I ever watch a live game on tv I find myself looking at my phone instead. Very different to RL where I'm a season ticket holder. Where I can I will watch any game on TV and it keeps my interest throughout.
  2. I don't see the point or the logic in lowering it at all. Its a maximum spend and if the club doesn't or cant afford to pay up to that limit then don't. I can see the benefit of a cap but after all the whinging I'd now like to see it scrapped and let those clubs who want to spend big on players do so, and when they go pop the lesser clubs can move up the ladder.
  3. Great idea and a welcome move. Might work,might not but ar least there is vision. It is somewhat ironic though that this has been revealed during the pandemic where international travel will be restricted for a while yet.
  4. https://mobile.twitter.com/Ellgren2 A Famous Sports brand is BACK! From Retro Shirts to Club Kits & Merchandise. Website Coming Soon!
  5. It is, even as a season ticket holder I was pretty blasé about missing the third edition of Trinity vs Huddersfield by July. Same could be said for other fixtures. I know SL clubs are against it due to slicing up the pie but it makes sense in every other aspect.
  6. RLD designs create decent looking shirts, reduce the the number of sponsors (or intergrate) them better into the design) and make the gear from decent quality material then they could be onto a winner.
  7. Could be Trinity's next supplier given ISC are off.
  8. Well he's set things up to increase income, tv subscription service, monthly magazine, revised lottery scheme, increased commercial involvement and subsequently revenue, re(vert)branded the club with great success and has a commercial team that gets the most out of challenging facilities. A redeveloped stadium is the next, and probably the most difficult aspect to improve, but I believe that task is being headed by the chairman rather than Carter. As an accountant by trade he is naturally conservative and is reluctant to spend what he doesn't have so he's not going to break any pots for innovation.
  9. Sorry but a hell of a lot of businesses in the country have either let staff go, put them on furlough or asked them to take a wage cut (a reduction in what they are owed) and I imagine few if any will have been given a share of the company they work for. Why are rugby players any different?
  10. No one knows who taking the brunt. If the players aren't happy about how the club is run they will leave, if they see the bigger picture that if clubs go pop during this time there will be less employment opportunity in the future. I've been on 20% less pay for the past two months and I work for a business that turns over more than SL combined by quite some distance.
  11. Which is why I suggested that Trinity are not looking for more outgoings, especially when there are reduced incomings and no certainty on what the future holds short term.
  12. I guess mortgage type loans don't usually count against you when it comes to credit, but it is a significant figure to service for a club like Trinity. Regardless it doesn't alter the intention not to apply for the government loan.
  13. I guess with a circa £3m loan already to buy the ground back they dont want additional debt on top of that when there is so much unknown ahead of us all.
