I thought he did rather well given his attitude. He most certainly had a script to follow and that must have been very difficult.

SLY’s approach obviously looking to expand, in their business.

Now can the lower tiers get on with keeping the game alive. Both without media restrictions or SLY paying not to show lower tier games?

If the deal is done still holding rights to the lower tiers! I for one will cancel my subscription.

I’m all for expansion. But my heart and head stays with preserving the roots.

Its a game of RL and shouldn’t be treated the way it is at present..

Step up RImmer/Elstone to the mark. Do you have the balls to take SLY on?

But surely that's exactly what he is saying? Toronto is a cash burning machine.

I would suggest you visit an Adelaide Woolworths and picture how 'Wolf Grooming' might fare against the competition, even if it can get on the shelf with all the other products (often made by giant companies with deep pockets).

Then we have the issue of a partnership with Super League. Is Super League expected to contribute to the marketing/manufacturing/distribution costs of something it knows nothing about? Would Super League be on the hook if it makes a loss?  What happens if LiVolsi does a runner and bills go unpaid (again)?

I can’t decide if you are a wind up merchant - and if so a very good one may I add - or someone who hates Toronto with such a pathological hatred that makes Hannibal Lector envious.

Anyway I would deduce that LiVolsi, or his associates have experience of pitching beauty products to national and global companies.  Every product in a supermarket competes against similar products and some products succeed and some don’t.

You fail to note, or blithely disregard that LiVolsi has 18 years in the beauty business so even Helen Keller can see that the products he is associated with can compete against similar products.  You speak about ‘giant companies’ but DiLivosi is a Board member of a company that is the largest in Canada and second largest in North America in its particular field.

Then your final paragraph.  If SL are approached it is up to SL if they want to associate themselves with the product and to what extent they may contribute in any way as they do with any product that sponsors SL.  I am at a loss as to why you think that SL would have to pay for the distribution costs do SL pay the distribution costs of mushy peas?  Or why you think SL will suffer financially if the product is unsuccessful.

Finally, if Wolf Grooming goes on sale at supermarkets near you will you be frequenting the beauty products aisle and taking photos on an hourly basis to let us all know how many have been sold in comparison to other brands.

P.S. please note that there are sometimes cardboard cut outs of people in supermarkets but these are for advertising purpose and not real customers.

P.P.S. If however you are right in all that you have stated then here is my apology in advance.

In case anyone from overseas is wondering, outside of Leigh, crutches in the UK are made of Aluminium.

Kayakman will probably be along shortly to tell us that in Toronto they are Titanium though.

I have been around long enough when all we had was wooden crutches Whippy, and it was an old saying to describe something that was not necessary, required or needed, do you get the point I was making in response to K'man's "SL needs Toronto" we are allowed to have our own opinion aren't we?

From your post the dislike for Sky is obvious but as a sport I wonder were we would be if they hadn't bailed the sport out. Certainly not were we are now. They may have faults but a decent Rfl/SL board should be able to look after all aspects of tbe game, but standing still means we shrink even further.

There’s a lot of playing the man here, a sign of a weak argument.

I’m sure Super League will be asking similar questions of ‘Wolf Grooming’ (risible name, by the way) and looking at it with open eyes.

No sign a weak response from me to your post.  I thought I posted a very restrained response to your post that misrepresented - on purpose IMHO - the article.

I have no argument with you if you distrust and/or dislike Toronto but to post what you did was childish.

I assume that SL undertake due diligence with every sponsor that approaches them and if Wolf Grooming is deemed not suitable then I hope SL make the correct decision.

Never heard of it, seems a pretty poor saying though as woodworm is destructive rather than unnecessary.

You will never catch me saying someone shouldn't have or express their own opinion Harry.

At least it's not another betting company.

Combine the two perhaps? Free slice of pizza with every winning wager. Or buy 5 pizzas, get a free bet.
