Time for a North American League...

with NY, just need 5 more clubs.

People can shoot me down but a sixteen team Super League made up or four conferences of four would suit me.

An 8 team league would be awful! 

Eddie I think we just might be getting a little bit ahead of ourselves here....Ottawa not confirmed and no mention of NYC.....could add in Boston and Philly and Halifax with Ottawa and Toronto....who would be next Chicago would be a very nice geographic fit as would Montreal...then??? Jacksonville?

That makes 10.

How quickly would an American competition overshadow Super League?

Would they take away more English talent?

Hopefully. And we'll take some of there's when they develop. And the game will have more money and resources.

Don't be afraid of progress.

A French and North American League would work well if they could get the TV deal.

4 of each. Play each other twice (14 games) and your own nation 4 times (extra 6 games) to make 20, mixed with a new mixed competition with SL to build the numbers up.

A start.

Four conferences of four? Based around junctions of the M62?

Some cracking teams in that list, if only they existed.

Interesting to see Ottawa say this: 

Superleague isn’t a priority, Canadian player development will be front and center. Also the team will be based in Canada full time. The facilities at TD place will for training in the depths of winter

If Toronto can retain their place in Super League at the end of this year, attracting good crowds to their away games in England (like over 11,000 at Warrington tonight) then I am sure that Ottawa and New York will be encouraged to become viable realities.

Hopefully Toulouse can make to leap into SuperLeague at the end of this season, to boost the game in France. And that development of a  French presence will also make Super League franchises more attractive to north Americans, both investors and fans.
