Doing their best to ensure they get their money you mean.

Wakefield who have repeatedly been reported for not paying the minimum wage, have a director who told a "professional" that his wage cut to £15k was "loads" when he complained about having to get a second job, and the obvious, play and train out of a certified dump.

Three of the four most progressive clubs, I’ve surprised that the other (Wire) voted against. Maybe the rest want to get Fev in instead, to really put the game on the global map. 

No need to pick on us, we didn't have a vote!

That's probably the biggest problem about the whole Toronto situation. Going back to threads of Eddie Hearn, etc.

What is strategy of the game, will it continue being 11 teams now, or will we see 1 team promotion into SL. What do the current laws stipulate on this matter.

This is just the start of the squabble.

Terrible situation.

No vision, no leadership, just wait till they start voting to kick eachother out to get their sky money

Sky needed 75 fixtures for all the clubs to receive the funding.  That's 11 clubs who are busting a gut!

Bye guys  it has been fun. Hope you all make it.

I'm actually gutted for people like you mate. Will wear my Toronto shirt to games when they restart with pride.

Can't blame union shenanigans for this one sadly.

I guess those players not being paid will remain unpaid now. 

Yup.

Whilst some of those elsewhere take home button money.

No wonder we lose players left, right and centre.

9-4 seems pretty brutal. Thought it would be closer.

Will need to see what is agreed on the structure to know what it all 'means' for the top level game as a whole.

But in terms of the fans of Toronto, who now no longer have a team, it must be gutting. Awful to see a club die no matter what your opinion of its owner (or anything else connected to it) is.

Mate I don't really have an issue, but I also realise people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and that 10 clubs is as likely as 11 next year.

As I've just said to Eddie and Wildcat, it sets a dangerous precedent about the outlook of the league when Season ticket money will not roll in for next year and some clubs face financial oblivion. 

I know my club will be fine, but virtually every other Super League, Championship and League 1 club I fear for given this decision.

How are these two things connected?

Would these "threatened" clubs have been fine if the decision had gone the other way?

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

A sad day for Rugby League if this is the end of the Toronto story. I never thought I would see crowds like I say for Rugby League in Canada and I would hate to see all that go to waste. As always in Rugby League it seems one step forward and two back.

Theyll go with eleven. Its too late to promote a champ club now and have a hope in he ll of recruiting a SL ready team for the start of next season

I'm not sure about that, I genuinely believe there's some teams heading for financial disaster in Super League. We've seen Saints say they need help, more will follow.

No, but the precedent that the clubs hold the right to vote out another club wasn't set. I'm sure 1.6 million or whatever it ends up being will be very appealing to clubs looking at an even 10 team league next season
