my point is that people complaining on a forum is not 'Rugby League'. It is why I asked what you meant by Rugby League and Netball.
Have you been on Netball forums?
Maybe Netball fans feel that their sport gets the column inches and coverage it deserves - I could easily have missed it, but I don;t see many Basketball journalists ripping into Netball in the national media!
aaaah well then maybe I should have been more specific in my language if I wasn't, I should have written Rugby League community. That is the Rugby League community I come into contact with which is by no means all and sundry for sure is quite limited compared to some but does include that of my own experience which is: what I read in forums, fans I talk to at games or elsewhere, ex and current players I sometimes talk too, administrators and officials I sometimes talk, as well as CEO or ex CEO, etc.....
You are right I have not been on Netball forums, I based that on 2nd hand information, i.e. my wife whom is a keen Netball fan, ex player, and involved in the sport to a limited extent nowadays. So you are correct in your assumption.
Oh to add... by the term forums I didn't mean online forums I meant the word as in grouping of persons, all be it that could be a group of two or often more. Yep, I know my written word can be quite loose and I need to be more specific and no doubt succinct - it has always been a failing of mine.
