It's pretty must just the A teams that pull fixtures in NWML though. The winter league had 5 from 7 games called off in week 1. Somewhat more than 44% in fact it's 71%. Given that one team clubs are for the most part better than ever in summer the issue is exclusively reserve and to me it's clearly down to the liberalisation of registration rules. Either tighten them up or go to merit leagues as it's not fair on other clubs.
Why should they vote on summer every year. That's a pretty deranged statement as I don't remember annual votes to play winter.
i thougth the idea to go summer was to improve standerds, if the NCL sides have no reliable A teams to fall back on who are playing at a high standard how are they expected to improve standards?
im not saying have an annual vote, i think their is enough concern with the drop in player and spectator participation to open the debate and ask the members what they think,
ive notice you havnt answered a nr of my questions which of course is your choice but your silence is deafining, i will post them again so you know which ones i mean,
some poeple on here might be of the impression that the NCL committee pushed this through and strongly recommend to its members that they have done some resarch and we think you should vote summer, (is there any truth in this) ?
and the money that was being thrown about had nothing to do with the NCL strongly recomending its members vote for the switch !!!,
its also been stated that the NCL are committed to the switch for three years, is there any truth in this and was this mentioned prior to the vote?
