I do agree with Leroy ... some compassion and understanding wouldn’t hurt Notaleaguefan. Be the bigger person maybe.

Lol
So Rl players have multiple choices of countries they can go to, to earn big $ playing their chosen sport .
Really big $ in SBW case .
As was highlighted & seems to upset the fumblers ....he is being paid more than any AFL player in the afl world ..lol to play In a country with a pro team that is a few years old & a country with little history of RL

Jealousy abounds in this thread .

Who has it upset ? I think it is great. A guy who played union and league and also boxed has earned a great contract. Unless he is going to throw some coin my way I couldn’t care less.

I do think it would be an issue for rl in Australia however if players can earn a lot bigger money overseas. If rl became a major sport say in England (or any major market) to a point where, due to population and then higher revenue, we could see a drain on players. Who would pass up a 10 million dollar contract? I think Union should also be wary given the interchangeability of players between the two codes. But if you were doing a SWOT analysis for rl in Australia it would certainly be up there as a threat ... but for rl generally across the world maybe a strength re global reach and opportunity for growth and marketing.

Make the most of it sunny bill because when the ten wolfpack investors get tired of losing big money on this franshise it all over.
Toronto wolfpack has got some support from English expats but it ends there, RL will never enter into the wide spread sporting culture of Canadian's no more than AFL will.
Canadian's are set in their ways, ice hockey, Canadian football, basketball and baseball, no room for RL.
Because some silly investors offer a wolfpack player bigger money than an AFL player means nothing.

Haha ah the jealousy. You see the difference is AFL is a crap sport which can't grow outside of 1 country.

AFL has tried time and time again and it is just not an internationally marketable sport.
You canned games in NZ due to failing support. Plans are to can games in China too.

Toronto Wolfpack are here to stay. They have local support and media interest. They are now in the Super league. You AFL fans said they wouldn't last a year. Now they are in their 3rd year.

And guess what, a team is very close to being started in Ottawa and New York too.

Plenty of Canadians in this video seem to like Rugby League. Crowds of 9k.
Is a high contact game, why wouldn't Canadians like a sport like that when they follow Gridiron and Ice Hockey.

Canadian Rugby League fans. I thought you said their fans are only English ex pats???

The jealousy is hilarious .
The bolded bit shows how far removed from reality you are.
RL is small in Canada..very very small .
But it's a million miles ahaead of afl there .
The jealousy eats you fumblers up .
Hence posting absolute rot to make yourself feel better and avoid reality

I think you think afl people care more than they do. People generally aren’t as fixated on rl and afl as you find yourself to be maybe.
