Debate would imply the consideration and deliberation of differing viewpoints Parky. Please feel free to start....
Well I considered and deliberated your idea as regards a returned to semi pro RL attracting players in the same way today as they did pre-1995.
Both JohnM and myself respectfully suggested that it would not happen in terms of the top players because RU can take players with their financial muscle as opposed to the pre-1996 position where League could take unions best and did.
You could have considered and deliberated that, you could have either agreed with us or agreed to disagree.
I'd have been happy to have accepted if you did not want to agree. Childish digs however have no place in an adult debate.
I do note however you feel there would be no wholesale switch, and I'd agree that would be the case up to a point - just how many RL players would union want???
However how many would they have to take of our top stars for people to think twice about playing or watching???
There's no doubt that semi-pro RL would survive and IF that meant it became a tiny northern game then for those who do not worry about such things e.g. - Marauder says it would be a "happy" game......
then fair enough.
