I'm just saying, it's not the same rules for everyone.

We shouldn't confuse Operational Rules with commercial agreements for entry into the comp. 

Operational Rules are written and can be found on the RFL website.

They are playing "home" and away in February. London had 10% dispensation, so it is not he same for each member.

In a thread where the club and fans are demanding to be treated differently, I admire your campaign to be treated exactly the same as all the other clubs. Of course that would mean no dispensation. 

The reality is that not all clubs and situations are the same, and agreements, dispensations etc. Will be made. Like the exemption of Canadian players on the quota for TWP.

It would be best if no Canadians counted on anybodies quota Dave , unlikely to see any in the short term be up to SL standards , not sure how it works with visas , but a better chance of any NA Union converts ' blooding ' themselves in the lower tiers or even NCL level initially

I cant see anything on the CBC Website about Toronto.

Guessing that relationship has ended?

Certainly nothing looks like it is getting re-broadcast.

Anybody know if Toronto's games are going out in Canada and if so what networks?

I agree. Whichever territories play in the pyramid should have their nationals exempt from quotas. 

However the risk with standardising quotas is where we see clubs have none of their nationals in the squad and maybe be an issue for the national side. 

I. E. Should we demand that Catalans have French players in their squad, or should they be allowed to have as many Europeans and North Americans as they like? 

Does SLE have international player development as one of its objectives or do they just want the best players in the world playing in the comp, no matter where they are from, like the Premier League?

Thats because the players actually live in London! A 5% increase, if granted, would be generous given that 4 months is the window available for home games in Canada and, if the players are actually there all the time, 4/12 is  a third, which is less than half (of London weighting).

Don't ever accuse anyone in RL of thinking small time and missing the forest because of a tree.

Didn't think they would get that 

Starting to think super league is more flexible than i gave them credit for towards the Toronto experiment 

That needs to be tripled and another marques spot added.

Now your being greedy.  

Not at all...more than reasonable...500 000 pounds immediate increase in the cap and three marquee players...for everyone, not just the Wolfpack...for everyone.

Toronto in future years need to sort out their imports 

The chase guys are way too old 

Your imports are average 

As someone else said it made sense you overpaid them to win the championship but they don't deserve the wages 

That Cronulla guy on 500k for example 

I'd be trying to get some better halves like Hastings or for example Anthony Milford or jack bird or.even Josh Reynolds 

Maloney would've been an excellent buy

Get Cameron Smith for a few years he would be amazing.  

Its about spending the.cap wisely

So far it looks like SNW only as sky have the rights. If TWP can get the rights for NA things may change but a little late in the day now. Hence no CBC or Game TV.

What type of channels/networks are these three being mentioned here? Who has biggest reach etc?

Not good....this might be the chaotic year until the season is over and things finally get settled.  Its like you got two guys chest to chest or something...push...push.  

My tale on it is Sky will give in but only if there are very good viewership numbers coming out of Australia.

Why would good numbers from Australia make sky want to give it up ? Surely the opposite 

Super league Gets less than super rugby or a league

Biggest reach is CBC. Sportsnet world is a pricey channel.  If regular Sportsnet aired it it would be more widely available

In fact that is literally the intention of the salary cap to start with. To restrict some clubs for the benefit of others.

I don't think that was the intention but I do believe it has been made to work that way but as with most things convincing people it's not fair is almost impossible.

Well it was one of its stated aims to even up the competition. It can only do that if it acts as a brake on those who can spend more, to their detriment, and to the benefit of the ones who cant.

 

If it was a blunt tool that was applied for everyone exactly the same it would be fairer than it is in its present form.

The reason TWP will probably have their appeal rejected is the fear of not still being at the top from some and fright at being left behind by others. It's the TGG way!

Let's hope I'm wrong.
