You also make the point about Crusaders moving. Am I right to assume that, at the time, you think they should've had their licence revoked for this?
What would happen if David Hughes pulled out of Harlequins and, say for example, someone took over on the proviso they could move the club to Milton Keynes. Do you turn round and say 'Sorry, no can do' and throw them out of SL? Or do you accept that for the club to continue it may be the only way to go?
The only problem I had with the whole thing was Widnes fans trying to link their clubs non-appearance in Super League with the Crusaders. Widnes were not allowed in purely because they put themselves into administration. Crusaders promotion had nothing to do with it. Although full credit to the club who have kept a dignified silence through the whole thing.
yes never understood this.. anyone with half a brain new that the crusaders were going to get in.. Widnes were up against Slaford, Cas and Wakey for the other spot and it was only finance that stopped them as far as i can see, its those 3 that are lucky and Widnes would have replaced one of them but it was never Widnes v Crusaders, they expanded to 14 and one of htose was always going to be the Crusaders. in the same way IMHO if they had said that this time round it was going to 16 then Tolouse may as well have quite for the year and just started building for super league.
BTW i thought it was quite an ausing post.
