The NCL committee supported summer that much is true, even before any talk of money. However, they realised the RFL wanted them to vote so were happy to get what they could out of them (ie money). The NCL voted to switch to summer full stop IMO, the Cumberland League voted to switch for 3 years before deciding.
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?
A teams is nothing to do with summer, it is a problem pre-existing in winter exacerbated by the careless discarding of registration rules. In Yorkshire it is made much worse by an appalling Yorkshire Men's League.
