Just how long would folk like lockdown to go on? Will Christmas 2021 be long enough for the massive snow melt that's needed? We're all happy to see a 12 team Super League becoming the extent of the game are we? That's what's happening if community clubs (I Hate that label, makes it appear that we're the unwanted hangers-on......[just leave that open for debate!]) don't grasp the nettle and fight for their futures. BTW I doubt this competition is going to happen, happy future!!

I agree that we are all frustrated PD but these decisions are out of our hands, the hands of the clubs and even the RFL. None of us has any significant influence.

Unless you are Russian that is!

Like SL, you mean?

Their choice is lose money or lose a shed load of money. They can probably survive the former but most wouldn't the latter.

BSJ,

SL would lose more money by not continuing the 2020 season since Sky would be within their rights not to pay since the product they have paid for would not have been delivered.

As Phil says either lose money or lose loads of money. The same is true for the championship clubs lose money by not competing in the autumn competition or lose more by actually taking part. Rock and hard place as it is with SL having to play behind closed doors. 

 

PS when are you going to answer my question to you on the Fev forum?


I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

Well thank you for explaining things so carefully - who knew that it was so complicated.

Now what do you reckon, is the Pope catholic, or what?

Four clubs are probable participants, no more. I don't expect the competition to go ahead.

Maybe we will be OK for Boxing Day?
