Sky should ditch SL for Div 1

Sky should ditch SL for Div 1

Post by NJASHT » Wed, 29 Jul 1998 04:00:00


As an avid supporter of a Div 1 side and a subscriber
to Sky sports from what I have seen this season the
public is being cheated by having to watch the many
purile SL matches that have been on offer.This is stark
contrast to the many sensational matches I have attented
in Div 1 .In Div 1 the players may not be as strong and fit
but the skill rate is high and teams play entertaining rugby
rather than the one man SL stuff.Its also true that Div 1 is
not as predictable as SL where we all know that Wigan
cannot be beaten.I would say that any out of the top 5 could
win Div 1.
So come on boys lets ditch SL for something better

Oh come on Steve, all SL is ***all Div 1 is good. I had the pleasure
of watching the mighty HKR run London close for sixty minutes earlier
this season but its clear that they would struggle to hold their own in
the bottom half of Super League. While there have been some average
games in SL there have been some really great games, Leeds v Wigan,
Bradford v Leeds to name but two.

I can't help thinking that an appeal for a mixed bag of games (best from
all three divisions might have got a warmer reception). Still can't
think that match of the day would ever drop a boring Man U v Arsenal
game for an exciting 3-3 draw at Port Vale.

I don't think so Dave, just a Featherstone fan with strongly held
opinions.

I heard recently that a possible deal is on whereby the BBC get SL
highlights plus terrestrial rights on some live Div1 games. As a Hunslet fan
who objects to putting yet more money into Murdoch's pocket, I hope this
turns out to be more than a media rumour.

Well coming out with a line of SL is ***Div 1 is good is clearly daft and
therefore IMO begs the question.

That would be a good move - get some games accessible. The problem with current
coverage is that it is only really seen by people aready into the sport.

Its my opinion ,over the past few weeks the televised SL matches have been poor
and
not very exciting.As I said before Iam not
trying to say Div 1 teams would beat SL teams
as thats stupid its just that I think the Rugby
played and hence matches in Div 1 are more
exciting and less predictable.SL seams to rely
on fitness and strength which leads to I think
a less attractive game in the Australian style.

Only half pure quality, the less said about the other team's performance
the better.
