  1. Another low scoring game, of quite recent vintage, was the 2018 Championship "Million Pound Game" at Lamport Stadium, Toronto, when London Broncos beat the Toronto Wolfpack 4-2. And, though I was there, I can not now remember if all the points were scored at one end. This game also signalling the exit of Paul Rowley stage left, soon to be followed by the entrance of Brian MacD. stage right.
  2. And Pekin' over each others shoulders......do ducks have shoulders?
  3. All-righty then. That then MIGHT make some difference in perspective between the two individuals in question here. More than likely the pandemic had an impact, who knows whether a positive one or a negative on, on David's net worth, as it pretty well did for most people. But, even if it was a negative impact, IMHO, it would not take ones net worth from circa $2/$3 Billion to zero, zip, zilch. There would still be a few quid/bob available for pet projects. No, again IMHO, I believe that David, looking at all the obstacles in play AT THAT TIME, together with his having incurred costs of upwards of $30 Million since 2016, just said to himself......"self, I've had a blast for ~4 years but the foreseeable future does not look promising, so I'm gonna throw in the towel". Now, the way that was accomplished and ended up was NOT PRETTY, for everyone concerned, but let's not go down THAT rabbit hole again, especially since this is a Salary Cap thread and thus bears no relation to those happenings back then.
  4. That's as may be. But if, as you say, your owner is worth as you say, such individuals have not amassed such a value of net worth, to treat any part of them as “loose change down the back of the couch”. There is a limit for such individuals to xxxx assets away, and the head eventually overrides the heart. Case in point, David Argyle with the TWP. David, by all reports, was/is worth about 4 or 5 times the number that you quote above. Yet even he reached a point where he decided that he had poured enough of his assets "down the back of the couch". And I DO NOT want to dive down the Rabbit Hole here, again, about "treatment received" by TWP from SLE/RFL as an "influence-maker" in his decision.
  5. If you really mean that question.....then Queensland. If you don't, why'd you ask then?
  6. A sell-out!!! And, for them, a "cold" night at 7 degrees....
  7. This is a grrrrrrreat idea 2blackrooks. Even though I'm kind of far away.....I might just pitch in for one of the two lower levels of "ownership".
  8. Would that include then.....There's no train station?
  9. Hi all. I have followed this thread from the beginning with much interest. And, I do not want to derail the thread subject matter at all, at all. But I've just read the last 3 pages (~75 posts) and ~90% of them are all to do with Wakefield Trinity and it's attendance last night relative to whether the new stand will help increase attendances or make no difference to them. Ancillary to this discussion are views on the state of the rest of the facility and how that will not change, the washroom facilities on offer, and how to market the team to the 41K residents of the Town/City with a view to increasing fan attendance. There were even a couple of posts about prawn sandwiches, and, I regret to say that I do not know if they are "high-end" or "low-end" fodder but they would seem to hold some importance in the grand scheme of things. Then we got into the pros and cons of whether it would be better if Wakefield were replaced by either one of Fev., or Leigh, or York and whether any of them could better the Wakefield attendances. My impression on that is that perhaps marginally but pretty much a saw-off, apples for apples. We are talking here about whether they can get 4K, or 5K, or 6K, or more in crowds. This competition is the Creme de la Creme of Rugby League in the Northern Hemisphere for goodness sake. Now here's the bit where I allude to not wanting to derail the subject matter. I'd like to point you to the thread called "Wow just wow" with the last post yesterday at 3:17 by Dunbar. It has had 2.2K views so I'm sure that most of you have viewed it. But I would ask you to really study, really think about, and really absorb the ramification of following the process(es) described in "The Sydney Morning Herald" article that are being used just for talent development and tracking by the Penrith Panthers of the NRL. These kinds of management tools are what are being used all over the world by the top teams in all major sports. Now, I ask you, are the top teams in our NH Rugby League, Saints, Wigan, and Leeds using tools like Penrith are for a similar purpose? I sense not and the reasons will be that we don't have the money for this, or we don't need to do anything like this. I'd absolutely be delighted if Super League were able to rival the NRL in status in the Rugby League world, and I ask would you folks on here like to see that happen too? But, it seems let's all just discuss the relative pros and cons of prawn sandwiches. Rant over...... I'll see myself out....
  10. Verrrrrry North American Pro. Sports Teams (and NCAA Sports Teams too) way of operating. This is a BUSINESS, a BIG business, not someone who is worth a couple of million net, toy or plaything. Good on them.
  11. That wasn't a poacher. It was Man of Kent looking for cardboard cut-outs in the bush.....
