You're quite right about the current business model in which the stadium is a major source of income on non-match days. Of course, my argument is that they wouldn't have had the stadium without the capital obtained from a unique source. I also see that SW Comms have just renewed their sponsorship for the 25th year. How many clubs have had level of support and would they have had so much for so long without the connection between the two organisations? I hadn't realised before just how much infrastructure SW Comms provide to Exeter and I suspect that isn't on normal commercial terms. So, as I say Exeter is a tough model for others to follow.

As for Bristol, clearly the play-offs were hugely detrimental but as you say the current playing model worked last season (though if you saw the performance at Worcester you might not be so certain of that). Bristol were also helped by Leicester's fall and the reversion to type from Newcastle. Clearly on-field success feeds into a sustainable business model but one season of relative success doesn't mean things are secured for the medium of long term.

I have several bricks for sale. You’ll have to pay the postage though.

Ditto - I signed up online with Pirates to do so about a year ago, but I'm not finding the link via google at the moment.

Let's hope that isn't the case; HMRC take a dim view of any such arrangements these days.
That's easy for you to say.

I think both parties receive adequate professional advice and act accordingly.

In any regard, I suspect HMRC would have no idea how much a “sponsorship package” was worth to the sponsor.

Actually HMRC did catch them out on a relatively small amount of sponsorship money.  I'm not sure that supplying IT and media services come under the same regime but, at the very least, I bet Exeter gets a very good deal from the main sponsor.  Which is just one reason why I think Exeter are a difficult template for success.

I don’t know about the ‘Exeter model’ or the ‘Leicester model’ et al, all that I know is that the Cornish are nuts for their rugby (or just nuts in general).
I will never forget coming back from a long weekend with a load of mates from Newquay and changing at Par to get the 125 back to London, only to find the whole train literally rammed with Cornish rugby fans on their way to Twickenham for the county championship final. That was only 1 train of many and there were thousands and thousands of them. Now, I know that this was in about 1990, but that sort of passion just does not die out.
IMHO the S4C will be a huge success and good luck to them. Can’t wait to see it.

Great post Brizzer - rest assured that passion is still alive and well. Going to rugby and supporting your club or the Duchy team is one of the rare occasions where we can get together and celebrate our "Cornishness." You are right, we are a bit nuts, but we are also definitely not English and getting behind our team, and having a proper old sing song after the game is one way we can show that. 
20,000 Cornishmen will know the reason why!
