You also cant operate a club living in dreamworld which is what most of SL has been doing since it started. There reality is that SL is a league that is not viable for no more than 5 or 6 teams. the rest shouldnt be there and can only afford part time rugby.
You can't operate an SL club based on the hope that away support is going to pay your bills.
The money is not there for fev, Halifax or Sheffield. But then its also not really there for London, Hull KR, Castleford, Salford, Bradford etc or else they would not have got in to so many problems. Huddersfield dont have the money without Davy. What happens when Davys money stops? What plans do Huddersfield have? Rugby League has bad management problems both at club and RFL level. Too many living the dream but not having the means or support for things. Realistically the future doesnt look good for the game in general. The game has too many fractions that fight against each other and not enough money or people to properly develop both clubs at Pro and amateur level.
But the money for Super League is not there, unless someone else can tell us otherwise??
Sorry but I think you will find more youngsters are attracted to Soccer or Computers than going along to Rugby League. 3 or 4 clubs do attract youngsters because of their name and success. But most Sl clubs must fight hard to get youngsters going. Even giving out free tickets to schoolkids is no guarentee that they will come. The development of youngsters watching RL needs to come not from Pro clubs but from development officers and school youth officers- which the RFL have cut back on.
Have to agree, but the young support want Superleague, I'd like to see them get it. I'd like to see kids in Oldham, Swinton, Rochdale and all around the M60 being taken by their dads to Barton for a dose of Devilmania! That's just me putting the game before the clubs....
