Iíll be waiting until very late April as the season renewal deadline is, I think, 1 May.

By then we will have finished the first 3 weeks of staying indoors and, with a bit of luck, we will have a better idea of how the next 6 months may look.

I think that the prem just needs to call it so people can an plan and know where they stand.
I really don't understand the rush. Or why people need to know where they stand. The season runs until June. There is still a possibility of games this season. Wait until May before deciding is my opinion.

I'd be ok with the table being based as final as of round 11, would seem to be a fair way to work out who gets top six.
I'm not a season ticket holder so can't really comment on refunds but if I were the club I would email the season ticket holders with a pro rata refund but as credit off next season's season ticket. That way the club holds onto the cash they have ( or don't as the case maybe) and can mitigate some of the costs into next season.
My "loss" comes from away tickets to Gloucester but as I'm lucky to get them exceptional cheap through work, so cheap the cost of tickets are donated to a local charity ( or their free but we pay £x per ticket for charity) I can write that off with ease as it's money already spent.

So what happens to people like myself who are not renewing?

With all Association Football called off indefinitely, including the Premier League, I'm not sure that Premiership rugby can maintain it's slightly ambivalent stance. I'm not suggesting that we should all be totally conformist with the thought police's wishes but I'd welcome some sort of normality right now.... The idea of a pint or 2 and a burger while watching some rugby is rather appealing.

Mark Evans seemed to think that the whole thing is broken.

I think is is quite easy.
There is a lower salary cap and the teams can only pay what they can afford as they have to submit their budgets.
The overheads are cheaper as the grounds are in cheaper areas of the country/countries.
They get TV money from Sky.

Some are in cheaper areas of the country. Others are the same ground.

Canít see that Northampton or Leicester is much more expensive for land than the m62 corridor.

Not sure I entirely agree with this as with everything going on has not been a very inspiring season.

I feel that this is an opinion which varies from club to club and fan to fan.

The World Cup was incredibly popular and Iíd imagine French national fans are having a pretty good season.

Likewise, Sale, Irish and Bristol fans will be generally happy whilst I can see how Tigers fans will be glad to get this season over.

Even the Sarries debacle is finally bringing some form of closure to a long-running scourge of the league.

Last season, the final few rounds were riveting because so many teams could (and were) win any game. This season looked to be equally close which makes it even more gutting that the season probably wonít reach much of a conclusion.
