Bonuses within the cap?

Tommy, your rep is fast disappearing.  A shared gate is what happens.  I don't need to justify or apologise for it.

But how many of those 2500 are paying spectators? 

Apparently, Barrow have said they gave 1500 tickets away for the playoff game with us. I've no problem with that, but they should have disclosed it to the club prior to the game, sadly they didn't though. It will be interesting to see how the RFL deal with that, and whose share of the shared gate that loss in revenue is taken from.

I guess by actually having their own ground they make more money on the revenue generated than on the tickets. Its a problem many clubs have that by getting nothing from the bar it means they jack ticket prices so no new fans.

John Davidson has said that he’s spoken to people and “it’s nothing too radical” and a lot of “common sense”. 

To me, the latter doesn’t work with the former but we’ll see. 

I think people have got a little obsessed with structures, as we always do in RL, and while that is the thing that will grab headlines, I think there is an awful lot more that I think IMG can bring to the table and should be focusing on.

I've made the point before, it isn't structure that is holding the game back, it is a lot of the fundamentals that if we don't fix, will still be a problem in licensing or any other model that anyone likes.

Of course the structure is important, but the boring stuff is probably what is going to make the biggest changes.

I’m going for 2.57pm as the time of the first statement from a club moaning about what comes from the meeting.

Yes, I think Jughead is being particularly kind there 😆

Here's the structure, oh and by the way, we've completely changed the commercial set-up of rugby league, introduced these new streaming platforms and are working with partners in X,Y,Z territories, industries etc.

You can bet which aspect of that sentence will get the most coverage.

Shared gate revenue in the play-offs.

No club should be handing out free tickets for a shared gate game without the opposition's agreement. There are some fairly strict rules, including limits on how many tickets are available to directors. All publicly available on the RFL website for those sufficiently interested.

Yes but not the bar which is the point. I am sure Batley have done fine for money in the playoffs now. Derek will give them the tickets on Sunday plus second place central funding plus half fev money.

Cant think of a club who deserves it more.

If you are right it will mean that I will see the proposals at 10.30pm Adelaide time and then spend an interesting half an hour or so reading the avalanche of wails, gnashing of teeth, exultations etc. before bedtime.  Can’t wait!

Man, I will be asleep. I'm going to miss the show.
