Barstewards the fecking lot of them 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

So all year they’ve been too fecking busy to sort the ticket problem out or even to make any comments all this time because they are taking a HOME game AGAIN to the 💩hole of Las Vegas so it’s two fingers to the loyal fans & season ticket holders who can’t attend! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

As I said in the other thread the many subsidise the few who can afford to go one thing I would say is why do they need English clubs?

Thought it was a rip roaring success locked doors etc why do they need British clubs? Very odd.

This will be every year now! And all the hangers on will be chasing freebies no wonder the RFL keep giving out fines! Then they’ll be saying they’re losing money! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

I think it's worth the risk in an effort to increase the profile of the game improve sponsorship opportunities. It's only one game and I'm happy to miss one if it's to do something a little bit different. I'll still be able to watch it on TV and anyone who wants to go can have what's probably a once in a lifetime experience (given how expensive Vegas is).

Not sure how effective it will be for Wigan and Warrington or indeed for the NRL but this is the future of modern sport.

I know some are a bit miffed but im actually really happy i turn 40 in Jan and was planning Las Vegas so this has fell very kindly

Outside of that i dont get the big deal - its a regular season match at the beginning of the year - if it were the grand final or challenge cup final then yes i can understand the uproar

And how’s this going to benefit super league? We’ll be playing one of our biggest games as a curtain raiser in the NRL s attempt to conquer the USA and generate even more money with which to buy more of our better players . We struggle to get them to commit to the world club challenge and here we are doing all we can to help them

Am I reading it right that season ticket holders have to pay for a ticket to attend the game, even though I suspect we will have already paid for it in next seasons, season ticket price?
