On a technical note, if Salford do go into administration, what happens with them for next season? I'd quite like a sensible answer, but looking at the way this thread's been veering I suspect I'm whistling in the wind here.
I don't know what you mean by "veering" Salford's struggle is a struggle that is magnified greatly by them being in Superleague where the stadium and the fans have not delivered. Nothings veered as far as I can see?? The repurcussions are fair game for debate.
As for what happens next year, it depends on if anyone rescues them. If they do then they may be waved back in to complete this license, but will they be given any tacit guarantee for 2015. I very much doubt it and there is the catch 22.
If the RFL/SLE are not planning for Salford to be in SL come 2015 (forget the licensing commitee rubbish) then who in their right mind would spend a penny on them.
That may leave 13 in SL for two years, but look what happened last time - Fev, Leigh and Fax were going to be offered the extra place. here's the second catch 22 - would any of these clubs want to risk going skint like Salford trying to make the numbers up for the RFL only to be booted out again 2015.
Hope I didn't veer too far off track there
