Is that a question or a statement?
Is there not allowed to be a middle ground?
Personally I think the game at present is 'fine'. The sport could do things much better, the sport could do other things much worse. Give me Rugby League's problems over Football's problems any day of the week.
All I try to do on here, twitter and on LoveRugbyLeague.com is try to keep things in perspective, while adding reasons to be positive, and generally give a sense of cautious optimism.
In my humble opinion the sport of Rugby League is not even close to dying, and the meetings I've had with Featherstone over the last few weeks only reinforce that view. I'm sorry if this offends you all.
You ain't offending me Gav. I quite understand why some cubs would be content with these arrangements and I have sympathy
for the plight they find themselves in. What I find sad about it all is the very fact that so many clubs do find themselves in this situation in the first place.
We are being slowly squeezed by the RFL and SL and I don't like that fact. I don't like the way we are ignored; I don't like the way
we are patronised each time we demand change; I don't like the way we've become an afterthought.
I respect your views and I fully understand where you're coming from, but the very fact we are in this situation is testimony to the way the Championship clubs have been deffacated upon from a great height.
No! it may not be the end of the world and No! clubs will keep on beavering away but it is despite the RFL they are able to do so.
