bingo as an industry has shown massive growth in the last ten years, no shame involved, it's a game enjoyed by millions, and I'm assuming this the first example in the multi sponsor approach. I personally approve, and after that is what's important ;)

see here The game is thought to have begun in Italy in the 1500s. Bingo is believed to have migrated to France, Great Britain, and other parts of Europe in the 1700s.[ Players mark off numbers on a ticket as they are randomly called out, in order to achieve a winning combination. Bingo originates from the Italian lottery, Il Gioco del Lotto d'Italia. From Italy, the game spread to France and was known as Le Lotto, played by the French aristocracy. Tombola was used in nineteenth-century Germany as an educational tool to teach children multiplication tables, spelling, and even history.

The SL, of course, do what is best for SL and the rest of the game, Chanpionships, amateurs, internationals, anybody not SL, gets left out of plans for the future.


Hardly a fair representation. Of course, if the of the game did not agree with what was being done, they could always try win the argument or maybe do something about it themselves. No, I rather think rest of the game is quite happy to bask in the reflected glory of SuperLeague..or might even strive to join,

Nigel Wood and Ralph Rimmer have had enough time to show that they are the right people to lead our game in to a positive future. For me they are not the right people. I see no clear vision of where the game, both at Pro Level and Grassroots, aims to go under Wood and Rimmer and how exactly its going to get there. The game is at a crossroads right now and needs a strong leadership from the RFL. The administration of the game is simply not good enough. Wood seems to think all is well in the game or thats how his spin articles come across.

The Sponsorship is tough and I dont think the RFL can be completely blamed for not having Sponsors on board. The financial world is in a mess and the future bleak. So I wont criticize them for that. The poor Media presence doesnt help and neither does the way SL clubs like Bradford, Crusaders and Salford have managed to give a very negative picture of SL and the game. The negative publicity recently about SL clubs cutting academy teams and teams claiming they are struggling, if not deep in debt, hardly helps the RFL find a Sponsor willing to pay out millions.The RFL needs to administer the game way better than it does. Good bye Wood and Rimmer lets get some new people in. Maybe somebody like Noble, Sculthorpe etc who have good contacts and understanding of both Pro and Grassroots level should be involved alongside a Sports administrator like Lewis, who brought lots of money and sponsors in to the game and certainly helped the game in Europe. Lets have a review of all areas of the game and have a framework in place for ALL areas of the game and have a plan of what we want for the next 5-10 years and how we will achieve it.

"I see no clear vision of where the game, both at Pro Level and Grassroots, aims to go under Wood and Rimmer and how exactly its going to get there" Serious question,:Why do you need to know? the season has not yet begun. We know the fixtures, we know the rules, we know the broadcasters, we know about the World Cup. What else is there to know that will make any difference to the fans? ? How do we know that the clubs do not have enough information to take them through to the next licence?

That's all so uncessary if we can just get a ten team ( 8 UK based ) SL to replace all that other risky stuff.

Seriously though it is time there was a master plan of where the RFL sees the game going in the next few years, including, for sure, the junior game to address the shortage of players for the senior game.

Even if such a plan has to be altered to meet circumstances, at least, there is an original template from which the projected future course of the game can be plotted. Whci begs the question of who could write or implement such a plan and why is it taking so long to replace Richard Lewis.

We, the fans, do not nessarily have to know but I see no reason why future plans for the sport need to be kept secret ( except for complicated negotiations with TV companies, sponsors etc ).

The way you phrase that you seem to be talking about plans for this next season. I thnk, though, what is being discussed are broad plans for the objectives of the league for the game going forward 5 or even 10 years into the future.

As somebody who is interested in the game at many levels, I want to know how the RFL plan to further develop the game especially at Grassroots level, especially with the recent grant cuts from Sport England. I also want to know what the RFL has planned to improve the standards on and off the field both in SL and the Championship. I want to know what the RFL has in place regarding the future of the Championship. Is its aim to see it as a feeder League? How does the RFL intend to improve its income revenue. There is a strategic plan from the RFL but only up to 2013. What about the future? http://www.docstoc.c...ING-2008---2013

Say what you like, but it gets pretty tiring after reading the same comments over and over again for months on end.

Fair enough when something goes belly up but this thread today appears to have been stated today for no reason whatsoever, other than to just have a good moan.

Something must be wrong if the leadership is constantly being attacked and the structure of the game is in a mess, the only people who seem to be happy are; the RFL employees, super league clubs and amateur administrators with egos.
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Who do you think owns Foxy Bingo?

Is that deal any more embarrassing to fans than say, reading the interminable chippy negative, depressing posts from the "don't care what it is, I'm agin it" brigade of miserable ######ers on here?
