Stop re-arranging the deckchairs on the sinking ship.

The game needs all the time and effort available putting into cash generation.

The reason we have An SL of 5 and 9 is not enough cash. The reason P&R has to be regulated is because of not enough cash. The reason we have only one fully pro league is not enough cash.

Instead of pondering how you can #### about with the leagues to get your club into SL, think about how to make your club so cash rich that SL will be begging for them to be in.

Couldn't have put it better
The only time P&R should be reintroduced is when we have a fully pro 2nd tier with clubs that have turnovers approaching the levels of SL teams along with stadia fit for SL and successful youth teams who can produce their own 1st team quality players.
Without this we just go back to having the yo-yo teams who get promoted, struggle because they dont have enough time to recruit players of SL standard, finish bottom and then get relegated again the next year.

A lot of people slag of the RFL but i'm sure they too would love to see more than 1 fully pro league, its just not that easy to do when your competing for cash with so many other sports, and even more so in times of recession.

two great posts..

Liscencing should cause the following:

Anyone interested to build good facilities so that those clubs belwo super league have facilities that can be used for more than just super league.. they can then increase turnover away from the Rugby League and also they can increase the turnover from Rugby league by havin the better facilities that the fans are crying out for (apparently).

They look to the junior development as vital and start to build the academies that every club needs, as such they then have a better ability to have teams of home grown players.

The new quota system will then help to bring these players through over time.

Costs will be cut with beter stadiums and a good youth policy becuase old delapidated stadiums often have higher renovation costs year on year to keep it standing, the youth policy means you have good young players coming thorugh who can fill the lower places in a squad for cheaper wages that some of hte players who fill them at the moment, we are starting to see this happen in a lot of super league clubs..


as this happens the ability to open up P&R or bring more teams into a conferences super league will increase becuase the gaps will close between the clubs off the field which is key. Then we are to the age old problem of more players needed but hoepfully that is where the academies and any expansion that can happen will kick in..

but we have to let the present system at least try to run its course and see if it is to work.. the present rush for stadiums in both the super league and lower leagues is a good sign that it is causing teams to worry and get the off field set up sorted.. or its bye bye..
