Ok this isn't Rugby League related as such but as we are a salary capped sport I found this guys comments interesting and maybe worthy of discussion. (mods feel free to move this if you feel it would be better elswhere)http://news.bbc.co.u...all/8197710.stm
As a big supporter of the cap I found it intersting to hear how a cap has made for a more varied competition in the NFL and as I've said before I think the first signs of this are starting to show in SL. I'd never thaught how the cap could be used to perhaps encourage investors either.
American sports also have a draft system which levels things out even more, and I doubt you'd ever get the clubs to agree to that in RL.

"Perhaps it would be better that future criticism of sports be made on the narrow basis of what is being discussed, without reference to other sports, unless those sports offer a solution to the problem in hand." - Brian 'Pigface' Moore
"What happens in rugby union? A player takes the ball, moves forward a little and gets tackled. A whole load of players then roll about on the ground. Pheep! The referee gives a penalty." - Simon Barnes
