    Dont clubs get payments depending on where they finish??

    Make the WCC a part of the deal for te premiers to get their cut.

    And play it in sone burgioning Asian/European/african/american location.

    Not in Melbourne where it will be LESS important that a regular club game

    Everyone going on about the crowds in Melbourne, correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Melbourne average better crowd figures then most, if not all, Sydney teams during the season and even in the finals

    Because Melbourne won't travel.
    An interesting idea.

    I want 100 points put on that In-glish team, anything less than 100 points I will not be satisfied with.

    Who gives a farg about this circus?

    Gimme the real footy anytime. Like the testimonial between the 2 smug merkins where a portion of the receipts will be given to charity.

    That would be the wrong assumption.

    It's a pretty bloody simple equation, "bloody poms" want event the majority of Aussies don't, so if poms wan't it to go ahead they can't expect help from Aussies who don't care and they have to make it worth the Aussies while, and if they want it to be successful in the long term they need to make the Aussies want it.

    The SL clubs and RFL can't expect to shame the NRL clubs into playing it with the 'it's for the good of the game' 'they don't care about growing the game' shit forever (seriously how does the WCC grow the game in any substantial way anyway?, cause I haven't seen it grow anything and can't see how it does), eventually the NRL clubs are just going to say 'f##k it we don't care about you shaming us anymore', so if you want it to go ahead and want it to be successful you have to make it a money maker for the NRL as well and that means growing the brand down here.

    Seriously tell me what I said in that post that was wrong, cause I can't see anything unreasonable in it.

    You think the rationale for this concept is to make NRL clubs more money?

    No, however I do think that the NRL clubs aren't going to take it seriously or be interested in it unless it does make them more money, and that the only way that it's going to make them more money is if the WCCs' brand and prestige is grown down here, and to do that it's going to have to be played down here often and that since it doesn't make the NRL clubs money and they aren't interested in it the RFL and SL clubs are going to have to produce it and grow it down here (as well as in England) by themselves if they want the fixture to continue and to grow into the future.

    I notice that you didn't answer any of my questions by the way.
