: Maybe so buddy - but for HOW LONG?
Until I'm out of work with fif*** kids to support. Even then I'd
probably shed a few organs to the illegal transplant industry.
Oh, you mean how long will prices stay under a tenner or so? Well, the
thing is how many clubs will be playing in their current venues in a few
years time? Various clubs are moving in with their local soccer clubs and
Bradford won't be playing at Odsal in its current incarnation for long,
whether that means an 80,000 seater refit for the place or a new stadium
just for the Bulls on a different site. Wigan will be in Robin Park soon
whether the speccies like it or not and London move around out of habit.
Who's left in the Super League? Warrington, Saints, Leeds and Castleford.
I suspect Castleford won't be long for this world in Super League and
their Chairman's attitude to the game in general doesn't exactly have me
b*** with confidence for them.
The one thing I'm fairly confident of is that some time soon, we'll have
a two-down one-up relegation system for a year so that South Wales can be
brought in in '98 or '99 without unbalancing the number of sides.
That's Castleford and Oldham out of the equation then which leaves Saints
and Wire. *** only knows what's going on at Warrington.
: Exactly 14 months ago the gate price at Saints was 6.00.
: A 33.3% rise in 14 months???
: Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this a tad over the rate of inflation?
Given the number of teams that seem to think they're in the 1970's, no it
probabaly isn't. :)
