Think you are totally right here BK would anyway love to unload SS he has had enough.Great news for Salford and the Dr just adds to the current list of fantastic owners that SL clubs now have which i predict will result in more pressure on the RFL to deliver (Which wont happen) so will lead to a breakaway down the line some day.CM
By deliver I presume you are talking about RFL generated commercial revenue? I think there are two sides to that argument, of course the RFL needs to work harder on generating commercial revenues both for SL and the wider game. However, it is incumbent on the individual clubs to run themselves in a sustainable manner and to increase their own commercial revenues, something that a number of clubs have failed to do (nothing new there though).
I think slowly but surely, things are coming together. Whilst the RFL might be struggling to find a headline sponsor, if the organisation can increase overall revenues into the game by other means then that is progress. I think in the medium term the link ups will greatly benefit the game in that SL clubs should be much more involved in the sport at Championship level and below where there are undoubtedly a good number of players who could do it in SL, given the opportunity. Slowly but surely the SL clubs seem to be sorting themselves out (inevitably there will be some pain along the way and some are a more complex proposition) and there seems to be a fair bit of solidity in the Championship.
And the new season starts next weekend, which means we can all stop speculating about this and that and concentrate on the rugby at last!
