Route66 Posted March 25 Share Posted March 25 11 hours ago, Big Picture said: The problem there is that with an M62-based league comprised of clubs in smallish, unfashionable, economically disadvantaged towns which are not the sort of places the public associates with big time major pro sport, there aren't any big matches, certainly none big enough to draw a big enough crowd to make it look good in a big stadium. Sorry to say, the plain truth is that the likes of Wigan and St Helens aren't big enough draws and the rest (with the possible exception of Leeds) are even less saleable to the broader public. That's a pretty depressing statement and its presumably why IMG have been brought in but if risks aren't taken what is the future at the top of the game in this country. The teams that are receiving the large amount of tv money are ultimately responsible for growing the game. Away from super league would it be total disaster if funding was cut so all clubs received a nominal fee,most fans following teams outside the super league will watch regardless of division as long as they are in a viable equal league 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
